Noon: CNN Wins Nielsen’s Squeaker

It was a squeaker race in Nielsen’s popular vote that showed a clearly divided cable news audience. But CNN still managed to edge out Fox News on election night. CNN delivered 8.8 million viewers (4.4 adults 25-54) on Tuesday evening. Fox News was right behind with 8.7 million viewers (3.5 million adults 25-54). MSNBC placed third with 4.6 million viewers (2 million adults 25-54). The ratings track from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., from polls starting to close through Barack Obama’s late-night acceptance speech/Entertainment Weekly. More here.

Question: Which network did you tune in to last night for national election coverage?
