Clinton king of the hill on ‘Larry King Live’

If ratings for CNN’s “Larry King Live” are any indication, Arkansas governor and Democratic hopeful Bill Clinton may come out on top on Election Day.

According to Nielsen statistics, Clinton’s appearance on the King show scored the highest ratings of any of the candidates in the race.

Moreover, Clinton’s 4.2 rating from Monday night’s telecast notched the largest rating in the program’s history, within its cable universe. More than 2. 56 million tuned into the hourlong telecast.

Independent candidate Ross Perot tied Clinton’s rating statistics during his Sept. 28 appearance with King. However, the overall household number was only 2. 546 million.

President Bush’s stint Wednesday night generated a 3.8, which represents a household total of 2.3 million. Bush’s previous appearance with King on Oct. 4 did a 3.2, or 1.927 million households.
