MSNBC Hits No. 1 for First Time in 21-Year History

HGTC, USA and Discovery join Fox News and MSNBC among the top five networks, while CNN averaged 952,000 viewers to finish tenth among all primetime cable networks. The Wrap also reckons that the entire MSNBC prime time lineup, which includes Chris Hayes and Lawrence O'Donnell, has chosen the right format - a straightforward plan of "hold [ing] Trump accountable on a nightly basis" with "powerful left-leaning political monologues".

MSNBC finished ahead of Fox News as the most-watched cable network during weekday primetime, averaging 2.34 million viewers, so both networks essentially have something to brag about.

For the first time in its 21-year history, MSNBC attracted the largest weekday primetime crowd of any cable network - news or otherwise. Weekday prime time refers to shows airing from 8 to 11 p.m. Monday to Friday. Despite MSNBC's recent success, Fox News remains atop year-to-date ratings across the board. MSNBC's "Morning Joe" beat CNN's "New Day" for the 30th week in a row, and MSNBC beat CNN in dayside viewers for the fifth week in a row.

Fox News has been the top cable news network in total day for 29 consecutive weeks. But last week, Maddow's show was the second most-watched program on all of cable, falling just behind WWE Entertainment.

In individual time slots, Rachel Maddow continued her monthlong winning streak over Fox News and CNN during the 9 p.m. hour.
