Experian Hitwise: Little Movement Except for Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor Claiming Cable-News Crown

The top three cable-news-show sites for the week ending Nov. 20 were the same as the week ending Nov. 13, but in a completely different order, according to Experian Hitwise, with Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor leaping into first place, followed by MSNBC Live, and last week’s winner, MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, slipping to third.

TBS’ Lopez Tonight dropped off the list of the top three late-night talk-show sites, with Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart topping the list for the second consecutive week, trailed by TBS’s Conan and Comedy’s The Colbert Report.

The top three broadcast-network sites were unchanged for the third week in a row: CBS, ABC, and The CW. The top three broadcast-show sites were also unchanged from the previous week: ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, Fox’s Glee, and CBS’ NCIS. There were no fast risers on the broadcast list.

The cable-show list was unchanged, as well: Comedy Central’s South Park, Oxygen’s Bad Girls Club, and MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. The only fast riser for cable was Food Network’s Down Home with the Neelys (to No. 20 from No. 32).

Continuing with the theme, the combined broadcast and cable list also featured the same top three: Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants, South Park, and Dancing with the Stars. There were no fast risers.
