Glenn Beck’s Audience Didn’t Really Want To Know About Books

Cable news ratings, December 21, 2009: Check out the highlights, and see the full ratings below:

• Fox News’ 5pmET ratings juggernaut Glenn Beck is off this week, and there are several pre-packaged new shows in the can that are airing in place of the live program. On Monday, Beck welcomed a few of his favorite authors for a “Heroes and Stories” special – and the ratings dropped significantly from where they usually are in total viewers. Beck was under two million, and had less viewers than the next two hours.

• The top show on cable news was, once again, Bill O’Reilly‘s 8pmET program in both categories.
