The numbers are in. It turns out screaming at women and fighting with Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar is good for your ratings. Just ask Bill O’Reilly.
O’Reilly made an appearance on “The View” Thursday. The topic was the proposed Mosque and community center near the site of the World Trade Center which was hit by terrorists on 9/11. It may have been the most confrontational episode of The View in history. After O’Reilly proclaimed, “Muslims killed us,” Behar and Goldberg furiously walked off the set of their own show. Classic television!
“The O’Reilly Factor” Thursday evening got monstrous ratings. A reported total of 4,165,000 viewers tuned in to watch O’Reilly’s explanation of the debacle. That’s way more viewers than the show usually gets an TEN TIMES the amount of people than watched “Parker Spitzer” on rival CNN.
