This week, twice in a row, MSNBC beat Fox News in primetime (8-11pm) in the key adults 25-54 demo.
On Monday MSNBC averaged 471,000 demo viewers to Fox News Channel’s 469,000.
On Tuesday, MSNBC drew 575,000 demo viewers, to FNC’s 526,000. We will have the full ratings numbers in The Scoreboard a little later on.
The number one show in the demo on cable news is always, always “The O’Reilly Factor” unless there is some sort of unusual news event or huge booking.
Tuesday night, there was no big news event, but the number one show in the demo was MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
