Cable news ratings, August 10, 2011:

•FNC’s prime players, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Greta Van Susteren each had a strong night Wednesday, but together they dominated the cable news landscape with a combined total audience of nearly eight million viewers–more than the combined total viewers of all shows on CNN, MSNBC and HLN combined in those three hours (6.4 million).

•In his new hour at 8 p.m., CNN’s Anderson Cooper fell to fourth place, with an average audience of 398,000 total viewers. That was a drop of 100,000 viewers from AC 360‘s lead-in, John King, USA, and well behind MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell (909,000) and Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly (3,250,000).

AC 360 was far stronger in its 10 p.m. hour, finishing in second place among viewers 25-54 with 278,000–ahead of MSNBC’s Ed Schultz (223,000).
