Jolie juices Coop’s ratings (surprise! surprise!)

In case you missed it, here’s the ratings bump for CNN from the Anderson Cooper-Angelina Jolie hype onslaught of last week. From MediaBistro:

Anderson Cooper’s interview with Angelina Jolie was the number one program in the 25-54 demographic Tuesday night.

In the 25-54 demo, Cooper averaged 754,000 at 10pm and 511,000 at 11pm. Among total viewers, Cooper averaged 1,568,000 at 10pm and 1,097,000 at 11pm. His two-hour average was 633,000 demo and 1,333,000 total viewers. (He was up 96% in total viewers and 218% in demo viewers versus his year-to-date average.)

The 10pm hour of Cooper’s two-hour special beat Larry King (253k demo, 973k total), Hannity & Colmes (295k demo, 1528k total), and Greta Van Susteren (284k demo, 1344 total). Bill O’Reilly still beat him among total viewers (with 2,197). Thanks to the interview, CNN beat FNC in primetime in the demo, but FNC was #1 among total viewers…

Now let’s see how he does this week without Jolie.
