The Kennedys Heading to iPads

Initially made for the History Channel, the eight-part mini-series The Kennedys ended up on the cable network ReelzChannel, because History said it "wasn't right for the History brand," and no other network wanted to touch it. Now, according to the New York Post, "All eight episodes of the controversial miniseries featuring Katie Holmes as Jackie Kennedy — which were pulled from the History Channel over pressure from Kennedy advocates — are available for iPad and iPad 2 users who can sync live to the broadcast." Frankly, we could have easily ignored this whole project, but now that the Kennedy family has allegedly voiced complaints and turned it into the historical mini-series they don't want you see, we obviously want to watch it.
