Mike Huckabee's live announcement that he would not be running for president drew a lot of viewers to his Saturday night Fox News show--but Huckabee still lost to CNN in the key A25-54 demographic.

Around 2.2 million people tuned into see Huckabee's statement--a very good rating for a cable news show on any day of the week. Moreover, Huckabee topped his timeslot rival--which, on Saturday, was a CNN special about the killing of Osama bin Laden--by over 1 million viewers.

However, CNN still topped Huckabee in the demo, drawing 348,000 viewers to his 338,000. That's also a lower percentage of younger viewers than several of his Fox News weekend stablemates, Jeanine Pirro and John Stossel, drew.
