Fox News Channel was No. 1 in total viewers for Tuesday night’s midterm election coverage, when all of cable news — and most of broadcast — programming was halted for race results. Fox News even beat each of the broadcast nets outright. CNN finished first in the key news demo, however, which encompasses adults 25-54. Fox News was second by that metric, according to Nielsen. MSNBC was third in cable news’ primetime results in both main Nielsen metrics, though it fared a little better in total viewers than CNN did earlier in the evening.
