The week encompassing Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings was also the highest rated week of the year for Fox News.
Fox News maintained its position as “King of Cable” last week during the dramatic confirmation hearings and subsequent vote for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
Fox crushed rivals CNN and MSNBC in all demographics. Nielsen Media Research reports that, from October 1 through October 7, Fox News more than doubled the viewership of CNN and MSNBC in total viewers for both primetime and total daily viewers.
Hannity was the most watched cable show in the country averaging 4.4 million total viewers. Tucker Carlson Tonight and Ingraham Angle both clocked in with 3.7 million viewers.
Ultimately, a total of five Fox News shows had more viewers than the most-watched cable news show on MSNBC.
