Rachel Maddow Wins 3rd Consecutive Week in Younger Viewers

By Chris Ariens 

MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show is on a roll. Maddow has had the most-watched cable news show in the younger demo for the third week in a row.  The last time Maddow won three weeks in a row in the A25-54 demo were the weeks of Dec. 17, 25 and 31, 2012.

Maddow averaged 678,000 viewers for her 9 p.m. ET show. Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, which also airs at 9 p.m., came in second in the demo, averaging 629,000.

The O’Reilly Factor maintained its run as the most-watched among total viewers (O’Reilly hosted his show three days last week, Monday-Wednesday).


For the first quarter, O’Reilly was No. 1 in both total viewers and the demo, while Maddow was No. 2 in both. We’ll have the full quarterly ratings for all the cable news networks tomorrow.
