Monday evening, an 11pm repeat of the 8pm “O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News beat every single first-run primetime offering on the left-wing CNN and the left-wing MSNBC. It was a slaughter in both total and demo viewers.
At 8pm, Bill O’Reilly earned 3.243 million total viewers and 571,000 demo viewers. The 11pm repeat earned 988,000 total viewers and 316,000 demo viewers. That repeat beat every MSNBC and CNN first-run primetime show in both total and demo viewers.
In total viewers, O’Reilly’s 988,000 total viewers nearly doubled Anderson Cooper at 9pm (563,000) and CNN Tonight at 10 pm (458,000). In the all-important demo, the closest CNN came to O’Reilly’s 316,000 number was Anderson’s Cooper’s 8pm snag of 234,000 viewers. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews came the closest on that network with 152,000.
