CNN’s Parker Spitzer Can Claim A Ratings Victory–Of Sorts

Cable news ratings, December 27, 2010:

•CNN’s poorly performing Parker Spitzer wasn’t able to dig out of fourth place in the cable news ratings Monday, but the Eliot Spitzer and Kathleen Parker co-hosted show did notch a bit of a victory–becoming CNN’s second-highest-rated show of the evening, after Situation Room among viewers 25-54.

•HLN’s Nancy Grace had a solid outing Monday, placing second overall in the 8 p.m. hour among viewers 25-54, beating Countdown on MSNBC by 32,000. Fox News Channel’s O’Reilly was a runaway winner in the time period, with 536,000 viewers.
