Cable news ratings, August 10, 2009: Check out the highlights, and see the full ratings below:

• Last night’s The O’Reilly Factor was the Bill O’Reilly‘s highest rated show of the year in the A25-54 demographic. It was the first time the program had more than 1 million demo viewers (1,072,000). Will he beat it tonight when he turns the spotlight on GE?

• FNC as a whole had a huge night in prime time. The network beat CNN, MSNBC and HLN combined in both the demo and total viewers.

• So how did CNN’s Kathy Griffin-Levi Johnston combo go last night? The Larry King Live show was the network’s top-rated in both categories.

Keith Olbermann had the top rated show on MSNBC in both categories, and MSNBC topped CNN as in prime time demo and total viewers.
