The Nielsen ratings are in and former V.P. hopeful Sarah Palin hit the nearly 4 million viewer jackpot last night for her debut appearance on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor” as a Fox News contributor. The count: 3,954,000 people tuned in to watch Palin last night.
That number is up 42 percent from the same night last year, and up 26 percent compared to every other day of the show in January.
Palin’s appearance beat out CNN’s Campbell Brown, who had 999,000 viewers last night. The show also beat every ABC program between 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., which included shows like “Scrubs” and “Better Off Ted.”
In November when Palin appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” as a guest, the show had an audience of 3,868,000 viewers.
So when will Palin be on Fox News again?
She’s on Glenn Beck’s show RIGHT NOW.
