CNN’s Parker Spitzer Roars To Near Tie With Weakened Lawrence O’Donnell

Cable news ratings, February 16, 2011:

•CNN’s Parker Spitzer continues to give MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell a fight at 8 p.m., with P/S attracting just 1,000 fewer viewers 25-54 than O’Donnell (184,000 to 185,000). The race for second place after Fox’s powerhouse timeslot winner Bill O’Reilly is one of the more interesting matchups, with all bets off after the departure of Keith Olbermann. Can O’Donnell establish a solid lead over CNN, or will the often-rumored-to-be-dead Parker Spitzer jump ahead?

•CNN’s Piers Morgan continues to struggle, placing a distant third behind MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Wednesday. Maddow had 285,000 viewers 25-54, compared to Morgan’s 152,000. Fox’s Hannity was first, with 478,000.
