HLN’s Dr. Drew Beats Fox’s Sean Hannity At 9 P.M.

Cable news ratings, July 8, 2011:

•In the aftermath of the frenzy of coverage surrounding the Casey Anthony murder trial–and the hotly debated verdict–HLN’s Dr. Drew Pinksy seems to be hanging on to an audience, winning the 9 o’clock hour among viewers 25-54. Dr. Drew averaged 390,000 viewers, well ahead of Fox’s Hannity, which averaged 286,000. CNN’s Piers Morgan landed in fourth in the timeslot, but had CNN’s best ratings on the night, with an average audience in the demo of 174,000.

•In a surprising race at 10 p.m., HLN’s Joy Behar won the hour among viewers 25-54, beating Fox’s On the Record. MSNBC’s Friday night prison documentary, Lockup, was third, followed by Anderson Cooper 360.
