“48 HOURS: DEAD RINGER” IS SATURDAY’S #1 NON-SPORTS PROGRAM WITH VIEWERS

Click HERE to Watch This Broadcast
48 HOURS: “Dead Ringer” was Saturday’s #1 non-sports program with viewers, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for Oct. 13.
48 HOURS delivered 3.53 million viewers and a 0.8/03 with adults 25-54, the demographic that matters most to those who advertise in news.
Saturday’s broadcast featured Peter Van Sant and 48 HOURS’s inside look at the twisted tale of a man whose murder was ordered – and who lived to talk about it. Ramon Sosa, a former professional boxer, was a family man and the popular owner of Woodlands Boxing and Fitness in Montgomery County, Texas. He seemed to have it all: a beautiful wife, Lulu; a healthy family; and a booming business. And then, suddenly, someone wanted him dead.
Van Sant and 48 HOURS investigated the twists and turns of a complex sting operation to catch the person who wanted Sosa dead. In the sting, Sosa had to become an undercover operative, eventually working with law enforcement to stage his own death.
At the time, Sosa was seemingly living a good life. Still, nothing would prepare him for the way his life changed next. Sosa learned through a friend who goes by the alias Mundo that someone was trying to hire a hit man to kill him. Sosa thought his friend, a former gang member, was joking. What Sosa and Mundo did next is unbelievable, stunning, and all true. Together, they set up the groundwork for a sting to uncover the plot and gather enough evidence that led to Sosa’s wife being convicted for hiring someone she thought was a hit man to kill him.
48 HOURS: “Dead Ringer” is produced by Susan Mallie, Jennifer Terker and Claire St. Amant. Jason Schmidt, Marcus Balsam and Mike Baluzy are the editors. Anthony Batson is the senior broadcast producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive story editor. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.
