Last week was HLN's (formerly Headline News) week in the ratings. In the Adults 25 - 54 demographic, HLN takes the 8PM and 10PM timeslots. They had the highest demo rating all five nights at 8PM and the highest demo ratings two times (Monday & Wednesday) during the 10PM timeslot. During the 9PM hour, they dropped to fourth.
CNN did not fair as well, with fourth place all week during the 8PM hour, mostly third place at 9PM and 10PM. Tuesday night was the only bright spot of the week with a second place rating at 9PM and a first place rating during the 10PM hour.
FOX found themselves in second place at 8PM and 10PM. They were consistently in first place at 9PM. During the 10PM hour, they came in first two times (Thursday and Friday nights).
For the second week in a row, MSNBC did not win any timeslots in the demo during primetime. They were consistently third at 8PM. At 9PM on most nights, they had the second highest demo rating (except for Tuesday night when they slipped to third). 10PM found MSNBC in fourth all five nights.
