Fox News brought in 1.73 million daytime viewers, with CNN and MSNBC finishing in the third and fourth place.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “Hannity,” “The Five,” “America News HQ,” “Happening Now,” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” helped give the network 18 of the top 30 telecasts in total viewers for the week. “The O’Reilly Factor” was the most watched cable show of the entire week, according to another report.

Fox’s sister station, Fox Business Network, had a good week as well. The network was the most-watched business network in total day viewers for the fifth week running. It beat out CNBC in the business day viewer category and the key demographic, making it only the third time ever the channel has beat its competition all week long.
