Posted: Sep 12, 2013 9:12 AM
MSNBC once again got badly beaten by Fox News and CNN during a breaking national news moment Tuesday, finishing a distant third during President Obama’s primetime Syria address, Mediaite reports. Fox News had nearly three times the viewership for Obama’s speech: From 9-9:17pm ET, when the president was speaking, Fox had 939K viewers in the 25-54 demo and 4.042M total viewers. CNN was second with 722K in the demo and 1.999M total. MSNBC did not break out the numbers for the address vs. post-speech analysis, but either way came in third place with 411K in the demo and 1.527M during the 9pm hour.
