Bill O’Reilly host the Bill O’Reilly show on Fox News and has maintained #1 in his time segment for news broadcast over the last 100 months.
According to Wikipedia: O’Reilly is a self-described “traditionalist,” a registered independent, and his show is the most-watched program on cable television. Prior to hosting The O’Reilly Factor, he served as anchor of the entertainment program, Inside Edition. O’Reilly is the author of eight books, and hosted The Radio Factor, a talk radio program syndicated by Westwood One, until early 2009.
O’Reilly is considered the main inspiration for comedian Stephen Colbert‘s satirical character on the Comedy Central show The Colbert Report, which features Colbert in a “full-dress parody” of The O’Reilly Factor. On the show, Colbert refers to O’Reilly as “Papa Bear.”
