    12.8 million viewers, but they're not 18-35 years old.
    So even cable doesn't want new Jesse Stone films.
    Ain't it nice to be irrelevant?

    The whole thing with Jesse Stone's ratings isn't really anything new (it being the most and least watched show on the night a new Jesse Stone film/TV film has premiered on CBS?). Keeping positive that more Jesse Stone stories are filmed.
