Tuesday Night Ratings: Piers Morgan’s Casey Anthony Exclusive Comes In Third In Demo And Overall

Piers Morgan‘s exclusive telephone interview with Casey Anthony came in third in demo in its 9 pm time slot, losing out to Fox News’ Hannity and, more surprisingly, to a Rachel Maddow-less edition of The Rachel Maddow Show, hosted by  Ezra Klein.

On a more positive note for Morgan, his was the most-viewed CNN program of the evening in both demo and overall viewers.
