Of particular note is Anderson Cooper. The 360 host, who came out of the closet in early July, has the only primetime cable news broadcast to actually see growth among adults 25-54 since last July. At the 8 p.m. hour, he was up 27 percent from June in total viewers (533,000) and 31 percent in the demo (161,000).
His show, as did all cable news, included extensive coverage of the July 20 shooting in Aurora, Colorado. He’s up six percent in the demo from July 2011, though the 10 p.m. broadcast is down 36 percent.
Its honestly a great thing now that coming out is not a death sentence for a persons career like it used to be a few years ago. Society is progressing and you would want to be caught on the right side of history wouldn’t you ?
