Glenn Beck Has #1 Cable News Show On Day Before Van Jones Resignation

Cable news ratings, September 4, 2009: Check out the highlights, and see the full ratings below:

• It is rare for a non-prime time show to be #1 on all of cable news, but Glenn Beck‘s ratings are anything but ordinary. On Friday night he had the top show by a wide margin, in both total viewers and the A25-54 demographic. The O’Reilly Factor, without Bill O’Reilly, was #2.

Tucker Carlson‘s “Fox News Reporting” special at 9pmET about school and textbooks performed well in the Hannity slot. It easily won the hour, and was #3 in the demo.

• The top non-FNC show was CNN’s Larry King Live at 9pmET, in both categories.
