Fox Nearly Doubles CNN and MSNBC's Combined Prime Time Viewers Last Week

The new prime time lineup at Fox News continues to demolish its competition.

Last week, FNC almost doubled the combined viewers of CNN and MSNBC from 8PM to 11PM.

During this time period, FNC averaged 2.1 million total viewers and 376k in the important demographic of folks aged 25 to 54.

MSNBC had 716k and 202k respectively while CNN brought in 433k and 146k.

For the week, only ESPN brought in more cable viewers than FNC in prime time.

TVNewser reports that this was Fox's second-best week of the year only bested by the week of the Boston Marathon bombing.

The was also FNC's second-best week of the year in expanded prime time which includes On the Record at 7PM. The network averaged 2,377,000 total viewers and 442,000 in the demo. 

Jeff Zucker and Phil Griffin must be eating their hearts out.
