Friday Cable Ratings: Bret Baier Tops the Ratings on Fox News

baierBret Baier topped the ratings on Fox News last Friday with a whopping 2.468K total viewers for Special Report. Eric Bolling subbing in for Bill O’Reilly received only 2.331K viewers (still overtaking the CNN and MSNBC competition by a long shot).

Baier came in second on Fox News in the 25-54 demo. He received 365K viewers in the demo, but Greta Van Susteren took in 387K. Bolling received 355K.

Meanwhile, the highest-rated program on CNN last Friday––Anderson Cooper in the 8 pm hour with 916K––still fell behind Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow with, respectively, 932K and 951K viewers.


Correction: An earlier version of this post said O’Reilly was hosting his program last Friday. He was not; Bolling guest-hosted.
