The "20/20" investigation of the Warren Jeffs-led polygamous sect, the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, was No. 1 in its time slot, according to TV Newser.
The show, which aired Friday at 10 p.m., drew 5.8 million viewers and added 16 percent to ABC’s performance a year ago at that time, the media-watching site reports.
Have you seen the piece? I thought it was well done overall, especially the parts about the family of Suzette Steed, who left with her daughters almost a year ago. Read her departure story in a court affidavit here.
