Wednesday Ratings: Maddow Beats Everyone Except O’Reilly In The Demo

Wednesday evening, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow beat everyone on cable news in the key 25-54 demo, save for Fox’s Bill O’Reilly.

Maddow’s 394k demo viewership was enough to beat everyone on all cable news networks, except for O’Reilly who scored 537k in the demo. In total viewership, however, Maddow’s (1.38M) was not enough to beat out Fox hosts O’Reilly (3.04M), Sean Hannity (1.86M), and Greta Van Susteren (1.42M).

Elsewhere on cable news, Anderson Cooper continued his victorious streak, defeating all his 10 p.m. timeslot competitors in the key demo. His 330k demo viewers beat out MSNBC’s O’Donnell (293k) and Fox’s Van Susteren (139k).
