Palin a Hit with Viewers

The ratings are in for Sarah Palin's debut as a contributor on Fox, and the former Alaska governor and vice-presidential hopeful is a hit.

Palin appeared on the Tuesday night's "O'Reilly Factor Show" and helped grow the audience on that popular program by 42 percent from the same night a year ago.

Palin also helped O'Reilly blow away the cable competition in the same time slot. The show even outdid ABC's prime-time programming that night.
