LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Larry King went out with a (ratings) bang.

More than 2.2 million tuned in to watch King's final CNN show on Thursday night.

That may not sound like a huge number, but it was up more than 100% compared to the previous night.

King even beat Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity, the perennial 9 p.m. cable news, for total tune-in.

Hannity was watched by 2.1 million. But Hannity did beat King among news' target demographic of 25-54 year olds (543,000 vs. 530,000).
