Nancy Grace rode the news that a child's body was found near Caylee Anthony's grandparents' home to a ratings record Thursday night. Her Headline News program was #1 at 8PM in the advertiser-coveted Adults 25-54 demographic, with 1.0 million viewers (63% ahead of its nearest competitor, Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor," which drew 616,000 in the demo). The 1.0 million demo audience was Grace's largest since her program launched in 2005. Grace beat both Keith Olbermann and Campbell Brown by significant margins in total viewers and in the demo, and came in second in total viewers to O'Reilly (who drew 3.8 million total viewers to her 2.4 million).
