Unlike the week ending May 14, there was change aplenty in the Experian Hitwise list of the top three cable-news-show websites for the week ending May 21. Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor continued to top the chart, but it was followed by two new entries — network sibling Fox Report with Shepard Smith at No. 2, and MSNBC’s The Last Word in third place.
The top two late-night talk-show sites were unchanged from the previous week — Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report — and third place went to NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, which replaced fellow NBC offering Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
As usual, there were no changes in the morning-news-show rankings: NBC’s Today, ABC’s Good Morning America, and CBS’ The Early Show.
