Wednesday Ratings Report: Anderson Cooper Surges At 10pm, Nipping At Greta’s Heels


Anderson Cooper
‘s AC 360 had a stellar night in the ratings on Wednesday, and came exceptionally close to overtaking Greta Van Susteren‘s On The Record in the demo.

Another honorable mention for the night was Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, which nearly beat NBC’s Rock Center. The two shows were separated by only 60,000 viewers, a stat made even more astounding by the fact that Rock Center was available in 17 million more homes.
