Shocker: Larry King’s Announcement Show Rates Well With Older Viewers Only

Cable news ratings, June 29, 2010: Check out the highlights, and see the full ratings below:

Larry King‘s announcement that he was ending his CNN show, and the subsequent series of surprise call-in guests, brought the program above average total viewers, but still 4th place in the A25-54 demographic. It was better than Monday in both categories, and it was significantly ahead of June’s average in total viewers. The show did better in the demo during the MidnightET repeat, with 197,000 viewers.

• The top non-FNC show, for the second day in a row, was Rachel Maddow‘s 9pmET MSNBC show. She had the only non-FNC show with more than one million total viewers.
