The Most Watched Cable News Shows in May Were…

May was a busy news month, led by a devastating tornado in Moore, Okla., the Jodi Arias trial verdict, and a string of political scandals coming out of Washington, D.C. As we noted earlier this week, all the cable news networks except MSNBC were up for the month.

Fox News had the top 13 cable news programs in total viewers, and the top seven programs in the key A25-54 demographic. HLN’s “Nancy Grace” and CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360″ also made the top 10 in the A25-54 demographic.

“The O’Reilly Factor” was the top program on Fox News and in cable news for the month in total and demo viewers, averaging 2.37 million total and 439,000 demo viewers. The 10 p.m. edition of “AC360″ was the top program on CNN in both total viewers and A25-54 viewers. Placing 19th overall in total viewers and ninth in the demo, “AC360″ averaged 803,000 viewers and 304,000 viewers, respectively.

MSNBC’s top program was “Rachel Maddow,” which averaged 717,000 total and 210,000 demo viewers. Maddow placed 23rd overall in total viewers and 25th in the demo. “Nancy Grace” led HLN in total and demo viewers, placing 14th overall in total viewers and 8th in the demo. “Squawk on the Street” led CNBC in total viewers, with “American Greed” tops in the demo. “Lou Dobbs Tonight” was the top FBN show in total viewers, with “Varney & Company” leading the way in the demo.

The full rankers are after the jump.
