I couldn't be happier about this. Not only is this great news for MSNBC prime time hosts Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, and Lawrence O'Donnell, it's also bad news for Fox and Republicans in general:

MSNBC IS MOST-WATCHED CABLE NEWS NETWORK FOR WEEK OF SEPT. 3

MSNBC Ranks #1 Among Total Viewers in Primetime for the Week

NEW YORK – September 10, 2012 – MSNBC was the most-watched cable news network in Monday – Friday primetime (8 – 11 p.m.) for the week of September 3, beating both CNN and FOX News Channel.

For the week, MSNBC averaged 2.53 million total viewers in M-F primetime. FNC and CNN tied with 2.35 million for the week.

This is the first time in MSNBC’s 16 year history that weekday primetime ranked #1 in total viewers for a full week. The week of Sept. 3 was also the network’s second best-ever weekly primetime performance – best was week of Nov. 3, 2008 (presidential election) with 2.73 million total viewers.
