[Ed. – Eventually, the money hammer will catch up with all these companies that obediently jump to the tune of P.C. activism. Seems like there’s nothing that will put money in the pockets of the folks you despise like offending Trump voters. I don’t even watch O’Reilly, and won’t share further on the “if you can’t say something nice” principle. But I do like seeing people fight back and win, against the left’s attempts to literally shut down and silence everyone they don’t like.]
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.
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.
O’Reilly was also the top-rated basic cable show on Friday in both total viewers with 3.8 million and in the 25-54 demographic with 759,000 viewers. Those numbers also beat NBC’s “First Date” and Fox’s “Rosewood” on broadcast television.
