The final Larry King Live telecast on CNN saw a nice bounce, up more than 100% from the night before to 2.25 million viewers and 530,000 viewers in the adults 25-54 demographic.  King bettered Hanity on Fox News in total viewers (2.24m vs. 2.16m) but Hannity won out with adults 25-54 (543,000 vs. 530,000).
