Paris Hilton TRIPLES CNN’s Ratings

Just In

Yesturday’s Interview had the best ratings of the year for Larry King Live to date!

Paris Hilton’s post-jail appearance on CNN’s “Larry King Live” drew about 3.2 million viewers, nearly triple the show’s average audience.

Hilton’s first TV chat since her release from jail aired Wednesday and gave King’s show its best ratings of the year to date for a regularly scheduled telecast, CNN said Thursday. The program has been drawing about 1.1 million daily viewers.

Hilton, who spent about 23 days in custody before she was released Tuesday, told King that the jail experience prompted her to re-evaluate the role of partying in her life and that she intended to continue her “journey” of self-discovery.

She also wants to raise money for worthy causes including “for kids and for breast cancer and multiple sclerosis.”

Hilton said the media has exaggerated her party-girl image and told King she’s never taken drugs and does not have a drinking problem.

She was jailed after driving with a suspended license in violation of her probation on alcohol-related reckless driving charges.

The hour-long interview was scheduled to be aired again at 8 p.m. EDT Friday, followed by a King interview with filmmaker Michael Moore (“Sicko”).
