After Rivers’ death, E! broadcast a special tribute to her with an all-day “Fashion Police” marathon, capped off by a 90-minute primetime commemorative episode. The special marked the cable network’s highest rated Friday in two years, scoring 1.1 million viewers.
“Fashion Police” debuted on E! in 2010. In April of 2013, the series’ writers went on strike in protest of not being given overtime wages. River hosted the show from the series premiere until her death.
