The film was also No. 1 in cable news in both the key demographic adults 25-54 and total viewers. Three Identical Strangers is scheduled to air again on CNN on Feb. 2 at 9:00pm/ET, according to WarnerMedia.
A companion podcast series, Three Identical Strangers: The Science Behind the Story with Dr. Sanjay Gupta is now available.
