I'm not usually a diarist, but I don't see this anywhere and think it's pretty interesting: MediaBistro's TV Newser is reporting that two nights this week, the Rachel Maddow Show edged out Bill O'Reilly in the all-important adult 25 - 54 demographic.

The number one show in the demo on cable news is always, always “The O’Reilly Factor” unless there is some sort of unusual news event or huge booking.

Last night, there was no big news event, but the number one show in the demo was MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.” This is despite the fact that O’Reilly had a big (and younger-skewing) guest in Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart. Maddow at 9pm drew 703,000 demo viewers to O’Reilly’s 682,000 at 8pm

Maddow wins two in a row

If Rachel can keep it up, they say it could potentially be "seismic." Is the country finally getting tired of the Fox lies? Here's hoping.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
