CNN Hits New Digital Heights in March

CNN MalaysiaWhen March cable news ratings come out tomorrow, CNN will show a vast improvement over last March, likely finishing second to Fox News Channel in several measures. This morning, CNN Worldwide chief Jeff Zucker is taking an early victory lap and thanking his team.

In a note to staff obtained by TVNewser, Zucker writes, “Your work, from Malaysia, Australia and Beijing, to Ukraine, Crimea and Moscow, to Pretoria and Washington state (and yes, Mississauga, Ontario, too), has once again shown the global power of CNN.” Mississauga is where CNN’s Martin Savidge has been holed up for the better part of three weeks in a Boeing 777 flight simulator.

Ratings Notes: O’Reilly, Morgan

  • A night after losing to CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360″ in the demo by 4,000 viewers, “The O’Reilly Factor” was back on top Wednesday night. Bill O’Reilly almost doubled Cooper in the demo with 537,000 A25-54 viewers compared to “AC360′s” 342,000. Overall, Fox News had its third highest-rated primetime of 2014 last night.

  • Piers Morgan is having a good final week, ratings wise, on CNN. For the third night in a row, he has┬ábested MSNBC’s No. 1 show “The Rachel Maddow Show” in the A25-54 demo. “Piers Morgan Live” still placed third in total viewers. For the majority of his three years hosting at CNN, Morgan’s show has been in third place in both total and demo viewers. He bids farewell to the 9pmET hour tomorrow night.
