Well, that didn’t really happen.
While No. 2 in its 11am timeslot (behind Fox News) “Reliable Sources” this past Sunday drew 472,000 total viewers and 152,000 younger viewers. Down from the previous Sunday and also down -24% / -15%, respectively, vs. the show’s Q1 2013 average. Bill O’Reilly can draw in millions of viewers and sell a ton of books, but he’s not the best ratings prognosticator.
