“Hitler” Will Lose Money For CBS

Despite good reviews, CBS’ mini-series on Hitler looks to lose plenty of money. The first installment failed to attract premium advertisers. “The lack of a major advertisers will mean that CBS will not be able to recoup anything near its costs for the miniseries. The losses could top $6 million for the two nights, according to estimates. Apparently, advertisers were scared away by the movie’s provocative subject – the early years of Hitler – and by the controversy that was sparked last year before filming even began.”
