For the first time ever, Fox News 10 PM show The Ingraham Angle beat MSNBC’s flagship program, 9 PM’s The Rachel Maddow Show, in the key 25-54 demographic for the week.
According to Nielsen, Ingraham pulled in 2.77 million total viewers and 556,000 in the demographic. Meanwhile, Maddow — which was the top-rated cable news program in March and topped 2018’s first quarter in the demo — averaged 2.54 million total viewers and 506,000 in the demo.
It should be noted, however, that Rachel Maddow only hosted Monday through Wednesday last week, with Ari Melber filling in for her Thursday and Joy Reid on Friday. At the same time, Ingraham did beat TRMS in total viewers all five days last week.
