WHEN Paula Zahn left Fox News Channel last September for CNN and a salary estimated as high as $4 million, FNC chief Roger Ailes said he wouldn't miss her. "A dead raccoon could get higher ratings," were his exact words. Now, 10 months later, a Fox flack chortles, "She's doing less than a dead raccoon." CNN's "American Morning with Paula Zahn" has drawn an average of 439,000 viewers since July 1, while "Fox & Friends" has had 714,000 viewers. That's 63 percent more audience for the FNC show featuring E.D. Donahey, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade. "Her producers have tried everything - and everybody - to get her ratings up," said an insider. Jack Cafferty, Anderson Cooper, Bill Hemmer, Bill Bennett, Arthel Neville and Leon Harris have all lent a hand. "CNN is checking to see if Larry King can get up that early," joked our source. But CNN's Christa Robinson, who preferred to compare Zahn's numbers to those of a year earlier, said, "We couldn't be happier with Paula Zahn. The ratings are up 200 percent among 18-to-34- year-olds, with more than twice as many viewers overall. She's the single highest area of growth on our network."
