O’Reilly-Obama Outdraws Olbermann

The Sen. Barack Obama interviews from FNC’s Bill O’Reilly, airing Thursday and Monday-Wednesday, and MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, airing Monday and Tuesday, have been compared for their vastly different tone.

When comparing the ratings, O’Reilly’s far surpassed Olbermann’s. O’Reilly’s four-day average of 1,254,000 viewers in the A25-54 demo was more than double Olbermann’s (581,000). And in Total Viewers, the FNC interview almost tripled MSNBC’s (4,937,000 to 1,763,000). The Obama-defending O’Reilly’s best night, Thursday, was the 2nd highest rated Factor of all time.
