Fox News dominated MSNBC and CNN during coverage of President Trump’s
Oval Office address and Democratic response on Tuesday night,
according to early Nielsen data.

Fox News averaged 8 million viewers from 9-9:30 p.m. ET, while MSNBC
averaged 4.2 million and CNN averaged 3.6 million sets of eyeballs.
Among the key demo of adults age 25-54, Fox News averaged 1.8 million,
compared to 1.4 million demo viewers for CNN while MSNBC failed to
crack the 1 million viewer plateau.

Fox News also had more total viewers than broadcast network ABC, which
averaged 5.8 million viewers during Trump’s remarks and the response,
which was delivered by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority
Leader Chuck Schumer.

“Hannity” picked up a whopping 7.1 million total viewers and 1.6
million in the 25-demo, marking it the show’s highest-rated telecast
in both categories since its return to the 9 p.m. timeslot in
September 2017. MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” averaged 4.3 million
viewers during the 9 p.m. hour, while CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time”
finished third with an average of 3.5 million viewers.

The evening was a win for Fox News all around, as the network averaged
4.8 million viewers during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m., while
MSNBC averaged 3.4 million and CNN averaged 2.6 million.

Tuesday’s viewership mirrors the results from 2018, as Fox News
finished the year as the most-watched basic cable network for the
third consecutive year among both primetime and total day viewers,
according to Nielsen Media Research.

Fox News averaged 2.4 million primetime viewers, the highest-rated
year since launching 22 years ago. No other basic cable network
surpassed the 2 million average viewership plateau, with ESPN
averaging 1.9 million primetime viewers to finish second. MSNBC, HGTV
and USA rounded out the top five, while CNN averaged only 988,000
primetime viewers to finish eleventh overall.

The president’s primetime address on Tuesday night saw both camps
drifting even further apart, with Trump declaring a “humanitarian and
security crisis" and vowing to protect America, “so help me God” – and
Democratic congressional leaders saying Trump is working to
“manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the
turmoil in his administration."

President Trump’s primetime address on immigration Tuesday night drew a big
audience — but the Democratic response by Sen. Chuck Schumer and House Speaker
Nancy Pelosi dealt him a ratings blow.

The nine-minute speech from the Oval Office drew a combined 28.1 household
rating in metered markets on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, CNN, Fox News and NBC,
according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The following quarter-hour, including analysis and the Pelosi-Schumer rebuttal,
averaged 29.3 across the same networks, a bump of about 4 percent.

Complete ratings for Trump’s speech and response will be available later in the
day.

DemocRATS... lazy and late. No wonder socialism is so attractive to
them.

I was waiting for Pelosi's teeth to pop out of her mouth and for
Schumer's head to peel apart and a lizard to emerge. The two of them
look like zombies.
