Washington, Jan 9 (ANI): It seems that Jamie Lynn Spears pregnancy has proved to be a boon for bosses at TV network Nickelodeon.

More than double the usual number of viewers watched the season finale of the 16-year-olds show Zoey 101, reports Contactmusic.

The fourth series of the children’s programme was reportedly in the line of fire ever since Jamie Lynn announced last month that she is expecting a child with boyfriend Casey Alridge.

However, the news boosted the shows ratings, with 7.3 million people watching the final episode of Zoey 101’s third season on Jan 4 - over twice as many viewers as usually tune in.

Nickelodeon recently confirmed that it would start transmitting the show’s fourth season in February (08). (ANI)
