Rachel Maddow Wins 2nd Week in a Row in the Demo

By Chris Ariens 

For the 2nd week straight, Rachel Maddow had the most-watched cable news show in the advertiser-friendly A25-54 demo.

Thanks in part to a massive audience Tuesday (her biggest ever), Maddow averaged 756,000 A25-54 viewers and 2.92 million total viewers. That made it the best week in the demo since November 5, 2012, and the most total viewers since October 27, 2008.

No. 2, FNC’s The O’Reilly Factor, averaged 691,000 demo viewers over 4 nights. Friday night Fox News ran a special edition of The Five at 8 p.m. In fact, O’Reilly hasn’t hosted a Friday night show since inauguration day, two months ago today.
