CableTV Ratings: Bill O'Reilly Viewers Surge

Bill O’Reilly’s ratings at Fox News were up last week as news that he paid $13 million to five women who accused him of sexual harassment and improper conduct made headlines.

“The O’Reilly Factor” averaged more than 3.7 million total viewers and 652,000 in the key 25-54 demographic last week, according to The Hill.

When compared to the same week in 2016, O'Reilly's primetime program was up 28 percent in total viewers and 42 percent in the key demographic that advertisers covet most, according to Nielsen Research.

Overall for the week of Apr. 3-7, Fox News placed five programs in the basic cable Top-10 ratings rankings for total viewers, with “The O'Reilly Factor,” “Hannity,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Five,” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” making the cut.

MSNBC's “Rachel Maddow Show” was the only other cable news program to qualify for the Top-10, coming in ninth.
