The Reelz Channel has been running a marathon of The Kennedys and will show the conclusion on Sunday, April 10th at 8pm ET.
Media Week says the station took a risk airing the miniseries. The station is seen in 60 million homes and receives no fees from cable or satellite providers.
While the top-tier channels receive payments from the providers, Reelz is paid only by advertisers.
Stanley S. Hubbard, the head of Hubbard Broadcasting which owns Reelz, said he hasnt seen a more interesting TV series in decades.
The New York Post calls the Kennedys One of the best, most riveting, historically accurate dramas. Meanwhile the LA Times says Barry Pepper deserves an Emmy Award.
Katie Holmes played Jacqueline Kennedy, and Greg Kinnear played John F. Kennedy.

Greg Kinnear and Katie Holmes as JFK and Jackie in the mini-series 'The Kennedys.'
I’ve DVRd every episode, but haven’t yet had the opportunity to watch them. I’m hoping to get some time next weekend. Does anyone know if they’re actually worth watching?
Of the 4 brothers, the only one worth a crap was Joe Jr., who died admirably serving his country in WWII. The rest were drunks, murderers, serial philanderers, rapists and criminals.
I watched the whole thing, and I recommend it.
Oh man, I wish I would have known about this I would have DVR’ed them. I hope they will have it on again.
Maria Shriver and Caroline Kennedy
The Kennedy family didn’t want this series to be shown. It’s well worth watching.
It will definitely be repeated.
Caroline looks awful there. Time has not been kind to her.
Maria Shriver and Caroline Kennedy can’t face the truth. Watching this series has taken me back in time.
You can buy the series on DVD. You’ll have to google it . I’ve watched it and I’m buying the DVDs.
If for nothing else, the casting is nothing short of amazing.
I’ve watched it twice so far. Well done. Look forward to the last two hours tonight.
I’ve watched it twice too!
