The numbers are in, and Paying at the Pump, the one hour special hosted by Sarah Palin and Eric Bolling owned the 10pm [eastern] time slot. 1,840,000 tuned in to see the show, which was also re-run several times over the weekend.
It was the second highest in cable news viewership Friday night, bettered only by Bill O’Reilly’s show, The O’Reilly Factor.
At 10pm CNN’s Anderson Cooper brought in 526,000 viewers, MSNBC had 458,000 and HLN’s Nancy Grace had 262,000. It should be noted Cooper’s show was a re-run, though he only pulled 426,000 viewers at 8pm, giving him 952,000 total viewers for the night, a little more than half of the Palin-Bolling special’s first airing.
The special also scored very well with the coveted 25-54 demographic.
