With another GOP debate set for tomorrow night on CNN, we have the ratings for Monday night’s face-off on Fox News. And as the candidates drop out, the viewership is dropping off. Monday’s debate drew 5.48 million viewers, under-performing FNC’s two previous GOP debates in December and September. Still, from 9-11pmET FNC more than quadrupled the combined Total Viewership of MSNBC and CNN. ABC’s Dec. 10 outing is still the #1 debate in Total Viewers and younger viewers, while FNC’s debate 5 days later stands as the most-watched debate on cable news.
