Glenn Beck had his highest viewership ever Thursday averaging 3.34M Total Viewers. His was the second-highest rated program in Total Viewers in cable news behind The O'Reilly Factor's 3.61M. And Beck was even bigger with the ad-friendly demo, putting up his second best numbers since the show premiered in January. In A25-54 viewers, Beck was #1 for the day, and remember, his show airs at 5pmET/2pmPT when viewers aren't in front of their TVs like they are at 8, 9 or 10pm. Although, last night many of those primetime viewers were siphoned off from all other channels, and instead watching the NFL's first regular season game on NBC which drew 17.75M Total Viewers. — Total Viewers / A25-54 demo • Beck - 3,340,000 / 958K • O'Reilly - 3,609,000 / 918K • Hannity - 2,986,000 / 831K It appears Beck's ratings are nearing that of O'Reilly in a time spot when he should be lucky to get half that. Maybe those advertisers pulling ads from his show did so way too prematurely as they could be benefiting from the huge audience Beck obviously pulls in everyday.
