[Ed. – Apparently, the network’s brilliant analyses are attracting new viewers.]
MSNBC is having a great week in the ratings.
Granted, Fox News won November, with ratings titan Sean Hannitymarking his eighth consecutive month as the most watched show. But MSNBC has stormed ahead of his network this week, with Rachel Maddow winning every night in total viewers.
On Thursday night, Maddow had the most watched show in all of cable, notching a massive 3.407 million total viewers and 633,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demographic.
Lawrence O’Donnell‘s 10 p.m. show on MSNBC scored highly as well, right behind Maddow. Then came Fox News: Tucker Carlson was third, with 2.589 million total viewers and 456,000 in the demo, followed by Hannity, who notched 2.504 million viewers and 385,000 in the demo.
MSNBC’s Chris Hayes was close behind, in fifth place, and Laura Ingraham landed 10th.
It marks a strong showing for Maddow this week. She was number one in total viewers and the demo on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week as well. Other MSNBC shows, like Nicolle Wallace‘s Deadline: White House at 4 p.m., also leapfrogged Fox News.
