November ’09 Ratings: FNC, O’Reilly Top Cable News

Fox News beat CNN, HLN, and MSNBC combined in both total day and primetime. In primetime, FNC averaged 2.62M Total Viewers and 714K in the demo, both up from October.

The network finished third in all of cable for primetime in November (5th in total day) and, again, had the top 10 cable news programs in the demo and top 13 in Total Viewers.

Bill O’Reilly (3.67M Total Viewers, 994K demo) had his biggest month of the year, helped in part by a publicized interview with Sarah Palin. Bret Baier also had his best month in both categories.

Glenn Beck was the #2 cable news program in Total Viewers and #3 in the demo. His time slot was up 101% in the demo year-to-year.

FNC has been number one in Total Viewers since January 2002.
