Both cable news giants CNN and Fox News got something to boast about with their New Years Eve coverage.
As the seconds ticked toward 2017, over 3 million viewers watched CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper & Kathy Griffin,” edging out Fox News’ “All-American New Year” hosted by Eric Bolling, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Jesse Watters and Kennedy.
Their 3.04 million viewers between 11 PM EST and 12:30 AM EST made it the most-watched cable news show for the evening. Fox News received 2.75 million viewers during the same time span.
Expanding coverage analytics throughout the evening, Fox News triumphed. Looking at numbers from 8 PM EST through 12:30 AM EST, Fox News averaged about 100,000 more viewers than CNN.
However, even in this expanded measure, CNN won the 25-54 year old bracket.
MSNBC did not have a New Year’s Eve broadcast, instead carrying live coverage from the NBC Network.
