TVNewser reports that Fox News crushed the competition by a wider margin than Mitt Romney did during its coverage of the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday night.
Fox averaged 2.25 million total viewers and 550K in the key A25-54 demo as measured by Nielsen Fast National data during the primetime hours of 8-11 pm, which was more than the combined average of CNN and MSNBC.
- FNC – 2.25M / 550K
- CNN – 1.11M / 401K
- MSNBC – 1.05M / 245K
MSNBC, which is normally a weak second to Fox News, slipped even more, falling well behind CNN in the key A25-54 demo.
Maybe it was MSNBC’s combined lineup of Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, Lawrence O’Donnell, Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow as the lead anchor that turned viewers off.
The best part of MSNBC’s coverage was the exchange between former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu, a Romney supporter, with the liberal loons at MSNBC.
