Whale Wars Sea­son 2 Pre­mier Wins Top Rank­ing in the US

Cap­tain Paul Wat­son and the Sea Shep­herd crew fea­tured in Whale Wars had near­ly 1.2 mil­lion view­ers for the Sea­son Two pre­mier on June 5th, 2009 on Ani­mal Plan­et.  The action packed series, which cov­ers Sea Shepherd’s pre­vi­ous Antarc­tic Whale Defense Cam­paign Oper­a­tion Musashi to the South­ern Ocean Whale Sanc­tu­ary, saw dou­ble dig­it gains from it’s first sea­son average.

Ani­mal Plan­et ranked #1 among all cable with males aged 25–54 at the 9 PM and 10 PM hours respec­tive­ly (exclud­ing movies).

“Whale Wars is one of the most excit­ing series in the network’s his­to­ry and a ter­rif­ic launch for our sum­mer sea­son with ten more weeks of amaz­ing sto­ry­telling for the show’s fans,” not­ed Mar­jorie Kaplan, pres­i­dent and gen­er­al man­ag­er of Ani­mal Planet.

Said Cap­tain Paul Wat­son, “We know that Sea Shepherd’s pas­sion and deter­mi­na­tion to save the great whales from ille­gal Japan­ese har­poons makes for com­pelling tele­vi­sion and we’re glad to see this impor­tant envi­ron­men­tal issue becom­ing a part of main­stream media.”
