Week Two for Parker-Spitzer begins with New Low; Worst Ratings for Larry King in 10 Years

Last night’s “Parker-Spitzer” saw the lowest numbers yet for the program and the show did little to help the one that followed on the schedule — “Larry King Live” which had its worst numbers in more than 10 years.

In its sixth outing, “Parker-Spitzer” drew 311,000 Total Viewers and 86,000 A25-54 viewers. That’s lower than the previous low for the time period set by Campbell Brown earlier this year. (332,000 / 87,000).  Last week, Parker-Spitzer finished fourth in the time period averaging 465,000 Total Viewers and 124,000 A25-54.

At 9pmET, “Larry King Live” put up its lowest A25-54 demo viewership since July 2000, averaging just 63,000 viewers in the demo (and a paltry 196,000 Total Viewers). King’s guest for the hour was Afghan president Hamid Karzai.

King announced he is stepping down from his show later this year. Piers Morgan will take over the timeslot early next year.
