Watters World’s debut as a weekly show on Fox News delivered its 2nd-best viewership ever Saturday night.

1.8 million viewers watched the debut at 8 p.m. ET, more than the combined average of the 8 p.m. shows on CNN (616,000) and MSNBC (392,000), according to preliminary Nielsen numbers.

It also improved the FNC timeslot +113 percent (834,000 viewers) vs the same night last year. Watters World, hosted by Jesse Watters, also won the hour in the A25-54 demo, beating the combined average of CNN and MSNBC.
