Thursday Ratings: Shep Smith #2 Among All Cable News Show In Key Demo

On Thursday night, during the 7 p.m. hour, Fox’s Shepard Smith beat every other network in the demo, and racked up enough 25-54 year old viewers to rank #2 among all cable shows.

Smith’s 293k in the demo during that time slot beat out MSNBC’s Chris Matthews (139k), HLN’s Jane Velez-Mitchell (120k), and CNN’s Erin Burnett (97k).

That demo score put him second for the night only to Fox colleague Bill O’Reilly, who garnered 391k.
