Wednesday Ratings: Fox Regains Control At 8 & 9PM, Loses At 10PM In Demo

Wednesday evening, Fox News regained control of the 9 p.m. hour demo ratings with Sean Hannity beating out Rachel Maddow the night after she racked up a higher demo number than both his and Bill O’Reilly‘s shows.

On the other hand, Fox’s Greta Van Susteren continued her three-day demo losing streak to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, but still defeated him in total viewership.

O’Reilly and Hannity’s figures (633k and 643k, respectively) effectively regained control of the 8 and 9 p.m. demo ratings, defeating Maddow’s 521k. And during the 10 p.m. hour, Van Susteren’s 458k in the demo was not enough to beat O’Donnell’s 531k. However, her 2.16M total viewers was enough to beat O’Donnell’s 1.67M total.

Here are the rest of your Wednesday night ratings:
