Fox News’ 9/11 Special #1 Program On Cable News Friday

Cable news ratings, September 11, 2009: Check out the highlights, and see the full ratings below:

• Fox News’ special about 9/11 on Friday night at 10pmET was the top cable news show of the day in the A25-54 demo. The program was the only one to bring in more than 1 million viewers in the demo. Bill O’Reilly‘s program at 8pmET was the top show in total viewers for FNC.

• The top non-FNC program was MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann at 8pmET in both categories.

Glenn Beck‘s 5pmET program came down to earth a bit Friday night – O’Reilly’s repeat at 11pmET beat it in the demo, as did Sean Hannity‘s 9pmET show.
