Welcome to the first full week of post election mania ratings. Politics have been driving CNN's ratings success this year and with the election completed, their numbers slipped this week. FOX has claim to the top spot during all three prime time hours. MSNBC takes second place during the 8PM and 9PM hours. CNN had the second highest Adults 25 - 54 demographic rating during the 10PM hour. Third place during the 8PM hour goes to Headline News, with CNN trailing behind them this week. During the 9PM hour, CNN comes in third. MSNBC comes in third place during the 10PM hour.
There was one bright spot in CNN ratings for last week: Thursday, November 13th, was the premiere of CNN Present's Escape from Jonestown. The program which was anchored by Soledad O'Brien did very well in the Adults 25 - 54 ratings demographic for the program's time period (9PM - 11PM).
- FOX (regular programming 9PM - 11PM): 448,500

- MSNBC (regular programming 9PM - 11PM): 506,500
- HLN (regular programming 9PM - 11PM): 226,000
