    how many viewers O'Reilly had and the wiki answers page topped the Google list of returns for my search on this topic.

    Clicking on it, all I could see at first were ads for medications to ward off early onset dementia.   Strange. Or maybe not.

    Eventually, in fine print it turns out that he has 600,000 nightly viewers and numbers in the 2.8 million range that you cited (now down to 1.9 million, btw) are the aggregate number of weekly viewers.  I think that means unique people who watch over the course of a week.

      I read an entire list and O'Reilly was on top.  I couldn't find it and everything I did find was political either because they liked him or hated him so that meant, I didn't trust them.....;-).
