Paris Hilton Gives Larry King a Boost
Paris Hilton gave Larry King his best ratings in two years helping veteran talker beat FAUX News' Billo.
3.2 million people tuned into the interview on an hour-long talk show that averaged only 1.4 million viewers just a day earlier.
King's highest rated recent telecasts were "Emergency Landing of a Jet Blue Airbus 320 in LA" (9/21/05 - 4.9 million viewers) and Star Jones interview (6/29/06 - 3 million).
As for the Paris Hilton interview, I couldn't help but crack up when King asked Paris why she chose to speak up and she said "Because you're such an icon, Larry".
Yes, that and the fact that NBC turned the Hilton family's $1 million offer down.
