Greta Tops Beck In Demo Wednesday Night

 

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

• It doesn’t happen very often, even though it used to happen all the time before Glenn Beck joined the network, but the top three programs on cable news last night in the A25-54 demographic were Fox News’ prime time programs, in order. Beck was 4th, just behind Greta Van Susteren at 10pmET.

• The top non-FNC show was, once again, Nancy Grace at 8pmET for HLN in the demo and Keith Olbermann at the same hour for MSNBC in total viewers.

• CNN’s two-hour premiere of Latino in America finished 2nd, behind FNC, in the demo and 3rd in total viewers.
