It Takes Zombies, Wrestlers and ‘Housewives’ to Beat Bill O’Reilly

By Brian Flood 

Bill O’Reilly hosted new episodes of “The O’Reilly Factor” four times last week. During those four shows, “The Factor” averaged 3.10 million total viewers and 597K in the key A25-54 demo. O’Reilly was up +11% in viewers and up +39% in the demo vs. the same week last year.

All four shows ranked within the Top 20 cable telecasts for the week, finishing No. 9, 11, 12 and 16 overall among total viewers. AMC’s zombie thriller “The Walking Dead” and its recap show, “Talking Dead,” finished atop the rankings. Discovery’s “Gold Rush” a variety of WWE programming and Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” are the only shows to beat O’Reilly’s Monday evening program.

At this rate, it might take Rick Grimes to slow down O’Reilly.
