Big Beck: Goes over 3 million viewers, beats O’Reilly in demo: Cable News Ratings for Wednesday, August 26, 2009
Posted on 27 August 2009 by Robert Seidman
Though a little scandal might alienate advertisers, it’s pure ratings gold. Last night Glenn Beck had over 3 million viewers at 5pm, second only to O’Reilly for the night. But, Beck had more 25-54 viewers than O’Reilly (888K to 876K). I don’t watch or really even care about the cable news wars, but still…wow. Even though Beck airs before primetime, when there are fewer people watching TV, he had the most 25-54 viewers in the cable news world for the night.

And just to piss Jesse Griffin off, I'll post his link on Olbermann here, because I know he has been getting traffic from the previous thread I posted.
You know it really must be bugging the left when anything Palin is linked to is successful.
Case in Point, Mrs. Devon.
Me thinks, Mrs. Devon is watching the wrong person when it comes to falling on their sword.
Maybe MSNBC perhaps?
