I'm starting to sound a bit like a broken record, but once again FOX dominated the ratings in the Adult 25 - 54 demographic. During the 8pm hour, they won all five nights. For 9PM, they took four of the nights. And at 10OM, they had the highest demo three of the nights. On Tuesday night, CNN had the highest demo during the 9PM and 10PM programs. On Friday night, MSNBC had the highest demo during the 10PM. (CNN ran pre-recorded programming during the 8PM and 10PM hours on Friday.)

In other ratings related news, CNN has been taking some heat for a full page ad that they took out in Monday's New York Times. The ad claims that CNN is number 1 at 10PM. If you look at the fine print (and there's always fine print), you'll find that the claim is based off of the Adults 25 - 54 demo during the 10PM hour. Factual statement... but there have been criticisms made that CNN coded Primary election coverage (special programming) as Anderson Cooper 360, which brought up the program's overall rating for the quarter.
