There is no doubt that controversy wells.
While Fox News host Bill O'Reilly is being questioned on a number of stories from his past, his ratings have been going up.
The O’Reilly Factor had all four telecasts of the week among the top 20, with the top one ranking at #9.
O’Reilly anchored Monday thru Thurs last week (he was off Friday). For those four days, he averaged 3,106,000 in total viewers and 597,000 in the demo. That demo rating was up almost 40% from the same time last year.
On Monday night, O’Reilly again pulled some big numbers. The Factor had 3.2 million viewers and 571,000 in the demo according to Nielsen.
