Limbaugh Helps 'Haney Project' Ratings Get In Swing


The third-season premiere of The Haney Project sank the best original series bow for Golf Channel since 2009.
The Jan. 11 telecast, featuring the swing coach working with Rush Limbaugh, holed a 0.3 household rating, translating into 310,000 viewers on averages, according to Nielsen live + same day data.
That delivery was the best for the start of a Golf Channel original show since the series bow of The Haney Project in March 2009 that featured former NBAer Charles Barkley.
"We're extremely pleased with the launch of our third season of The Haney Project," said Tom Stathakes, Golf Channel senior vice president of programming, production and operations, in a statement. "This is a testament to the gains we've made to our original programming and that, in addition to great golf competition, Golf Channel is a viable choice for people seeking great entertainment."
