Bill O’Reilly Tops Competition By 300,000+ In Demo

Cable news ratings, November 2, 2009: Check out the highlights, and see the full ratings below:

Bill O’Reilly, once again, had the top show on cable news last night in both total viewers and the A25-54 demographic. In the demo, he was far ahead of the rest of the pack – O’Reilly had 943,000 demo viewers, Glenn Beck was #2 with 643,000.

• The top non-FNC show was Nancy Grace‘s 8pmET HLN hour in the demo and Keith Olbermann‘s 8pmET MSNBC hour in total viewers.

• Some cable news show saw year-long lows last night, with CNN’s Larry King at 9pmET and Anderson Cooper at 10pmET having their worst total viewer average of 2009. We may have to blame the World Series a little bit – Sean Hannity‘s total viewer average at 9pmET for Fox News was lower than Bret Baier at 6pmET and Shepard Smith at 7pmET.
