This week was a good week for CNN. They not only won the 9PM and 10PM timeslots, they also had the highest average Adults 25-54 demographic for every hour between 5PM and 12 MIDNIGHT except for 8PM which went to MSNBC. (Although FOX can claim victory on the average total number of viewers each hour, FOX didn't win a single timeslot in the demo.)
1 4 day average. Tuesday primary coverage excluded.
