The only higher viewership this year for Hannity & Colmes — 4.948 million — was on Sept. 3. And what was happening that night? The nation was awaiting Palin’s speech to the Republican National Convention.

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow: 1,716,000 viewers (635,000 in the 25-54).

CNN’s Larry King: 1,646,000 viewers (630,000 in the 25-54).
