Bill O'Reilly was on vacation when the situation broke in Ferguson. The FOX celebrity cut his trip short to return to the air and proceeded to beat CNN's Anderson Cooper and MSNBC's Chris Hayes.
O'Reilly had 3.3 million viewers to Cooper's 946,000 and Hayes' 637,000.
Fox News Channel grew in primetime while CNN and MSNBC both lost significant audience. In fact, CNN's primetime dropped 23 percent. Maybe it's because Don Lemon stopped wearing his gas mask.
