By Chris Ariens 

Fox News Channel’s Hannity, which featured an exclusive interview with Donald Trump Jr., was the number one cable news show last night in total viewers, averaging 2.9 million viewers.

But MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, which also heavily covered the controversy over Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian attorney, but from a completely different angle, was No. 1 in the A25-54 demo for the night.
