One week after the shocking removal of star anchor Tucker Carlson, Fox News lost the primetime ratings battle with MSNBC. CNN brought up the rear but MSNBC did something you don’t see often, winning total primetime viewers and with the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demographic.
Fox News brought in 1.598 million total viewers and 164,000 demo viewers Monday during primetime. But MSNBC had 1.693 million total viewers and 176,000 demo viewers.
CNN was in third place with 481,000 total viewers and 109,000 demo viewers. The Rachel Maddow show led prime time with 2.2 million total viewers. The MSNBC show was the third highest-rated show for the day.
Fox News’s The Five and Jesse Watters Tonight beat Maddow but both shows run earlier in the day.
