In its first outing, “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” was MSNBC’s #1 show yesterday.
The debut episode of the program drew 928,000 Total Viewers and 266,000 in the A25-54 demo. “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” on Fox News Channel won the 10pmET hour handily, nearly doubling O’Donnell’s audience, while O’Donnell more than doubled the viewership of CNN’s Anderson Cooper in the hour, in both Total Viewers and the demo.
O’Donnell had Vice President Biden as his first guest.
