During this time the liberal network gained 2.34 million viewers between 17 and 21 July, while Fox News had 2.25 million. The Wrap also reckons that the entire MSNBC prime time lineup, which includes Chris Hayes and Lawrence O'Donnell, has chosen the right format - a straightforward plan of "hold [ing] Trump accountable on a nightly basis" with "powerful left-leaning political monologues".

But 2017 brought lots of changes to Fox News, with Kelly defecting to NBC News early in the year and the cable news network parting ways with Bill O'Reilly amid mounting allegations of sexual harassment and bad behavior. And the day has finally arrived when MSNBC can claim to have beaten both Fox News and CNN in prime time ratings for a whole week.

From the hours of 8-11 p.m., MSNBC pulled in a viewership average of 2.34 million last week.

Much of the credit for the prime time switcheroo goes to The Rachel Maddow Show that has been trouncing CNN and Fox News from 9-10pm for four straight weeks.

Maintaining a streak of ratings momentum and general good news, MSNBC logged a new first last week: It ranked as the most-watched primetime network in all of cable. But last week, Maddow's show was the second most-watched program on all of cable, falling just behind WWE Entertainment.
