48 HOURS MYSTERY SWEEPS ITS TIME SLOT TO BECOME THE NIGHT'S #1 PROGRAM IN HOUSEHOLDS AND VIEWERS ON SATURDAY AUGUST 15

The 48 HOURS MYSTERY broadcast, "Peace, Love and Murder" was first in households (3.8/08), viewers (5.57m), adults 25-54 (1.5/05) and adults 18-49 (1.2/04) in its time slot on Saturday, August 15 and was the night's #1 program in households and viewers. 48 HOURS MYSTERY was up +73% in households, +36% in adults 25-54 and +50% in adults 18-49 compared to the same night last year.

The broadcast featured Harold Dow's report about Bob Eckhart and Toni Soren, two self-proclaimed hippies who, in the early 1970's, fell in love upon meeting, married 48 hours later and combined their last names to create a new romantic one: "Heartsong." Bob had even referred to his marriage as "like living in nirvana." But twenty-seven years and two children later, their union was torn apart when Bob came home from work to find Toni bludgeoned and stabbed to death, with seven wounds to her neck. With Bob eliminated as a suspect the case went cold, until 2006 when a determined detective reopened the case and with the help of new DNA technology uncovered a surprising truth.

48 HOURS MYSTERY: "Peace, Love and Murder," was produced by Alec Sirken and Lourdes Aguiar. Paul Ryan was the senior producer and Al Briganti was the executive editor. Susan Zirinsky was the executive producer.
