O'Reilly Predicts Epic Ratings for Himself

Somebody should really teach Bill O’Reilly a lesson in humility. The Fox News host, who scored a pre-Super Bowl interview with President Obama, said Friday he believes the special will be the most-watched television event in history. “More people will see this interview than any other interview that ever been done in the history of mankind,” O’Reilly said when he called into Fox News’ Happening Now. The record for most-watched interview is Barbara Walters’ 1999 sit-down with Monica Lewinsky, which was watched by 70 million. A pregame presidential interview has become the norm in the past couple of years—Obama sat down with Matt Lauer in 2009 and with Katie Couric in 2010.
