Fox’s Bill O’Reilly Wins Big: 1 Million Viewers On 1/11/11

Cable news ratings, January 11, 2011:

•There’s no disputing the numbers: Bill O’Reilly was the king of cable news on January 11, with 1,000,000 viewers 25-54, destroying the competition in the 8 o’clock timeslot (Keith Olbermann was second with 376,000 viewers) and posting his best performance in this key demographic since 11/3/10–one day after the mid-term elections.

•The new live-format Parker Spitzer on CNN is showing signs of life, with 176,000 viewers 25-54–still just a fourth-place showing, but more than double the ratings the show has done in recent weeks, and within striking distance of HLN’s Nancy Grace, who had 192,000.

Here’s the full scoreboard:
