New York Times || Women’s Wear Daily
Lawrence O’Donnell averaged 1.5 million total viewers for his first night as Keith Olbermann‘s replacement — up a little under 50 percent from Olbermann’s average number in that hour, reports Bill Carter. Rachel Maddow was up by about the same amount. || Women’s Wear Daily: O’Donnell has stepped into the shoes of the network’s highest-rated commentator, and all the pundits are wondering whether he’s up to the task.
