Tuesday Ratings: Piers Morgan Beat All Other CNN Shows In Both Demo And Total Viewers

On Tuesday, Piers Morgan won the night among all CNN shows in both the key demo and total viewership.

Morgan’s 174k in the key 25-54 demo was enough to outdo the next-best CNN colleagues in Anderson Cooper (166k) and Erin Burnett (133k). In total viewership, his 556k viewers beat out Cooper’s 524k and Burnett’s 424k.

In November, at 9pm, Piers Morgan Tonight had its best performance in both total viewers and in the demo since March 2011 (covering the Japanese earthquake). Also the show increased +44% in total viewers (905k vs. 629k) and +73% in the key demo (271k vs. 157k).

Also during the 9 p.m. timeslot, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow (416k) beat out the rest of her network as well as her timeslot competitor in Fox’s Sean Hannity (394k).
