Forbes reports that CNN was the most-watched cable news show at 8 pm and this continued through 9 pm., then back to their old selves.

CNN took a rare ratings victory in prime time Wednesday night, with the network’s town hall featuring former President Donald Trump drawing 3.1 million viewers, according to early overnight Nielsen ratings. From 8 p.m. to 9:15 p.m., CNN was the most-watched cable news network. They more than doubled the ratings of Fox News (1.4 million viewers) and MSNBC (1.37 million viewers).

CNN held on to first place into the 9 p.m. ET hour, with an average audience of 2.03 million viewers, just ahead of Fox News Channel’s 1.93 million viewers and MSNBC’s 1.36 million viewers. By 10 p.m. ET, CNN had fallen back into its familiar third-place slot, delivering an audience of 1.2 million viewers, compared to MSNBC’s 1.6 million viewers and FNC’s 1.8 million viewers.

Fox News is looking at Laura Ingraham to take over Tucker Carlson’s timeslot. It might be because she has picked up some of the youth. She’s at 241,000 in the Demo, 25-54. It’s not Tucker’s numbers, but they might think the earlier hour will increase those numbers.

The organic boycott of Fox News Tonight continues. As for the other primetime shows, they’re not what they were.
