Fox News’ 8pmET “O’Reilly Factor” was the top rated cable news show last night, but it also drew more viewers than “Community” and “Parks and Recreation” the NBC broadcast sitcoms that run during the 8pm time-slot. Bill O’Reilly‘s show also had more total viewers than Jay Leno.
Last night’s 4.8 million viewer audience was O’Reilly’s largest since the breaking news at Fort Hood last November.
