Monday Final Nationals: News of Sally Yates Firing Gives Large Boosts to MSNBC’s Maddow and O’Donnell

CBS was Monday’s most-watched prime time network with 6.09 million viewers. “The Bachelor” again provided ABC the lead in adults 18-49 (1.8 rating/6 share) and adults 18-34 (1.7/7), as well as in adults 25-54 (2.0/6).

The news of President Trump’s firing of acting Attorney General Sally Yates, which broke within the 9 p.m. hour, gave a huge boost to both MSNBC news shows “The Rachel Maddow Show” (2.613 million viewers) and “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” (2.391 million viewers). It marked an increases of 27 percent (for Maddow) and 35 percent (for O’Donnell) in total viewers from each show’s prime time average for Jan. 23-27, 2017 (Maddow 2.05 million, O’Donnell 1.77 million). Along with “All In with Chris Hayes” at 8 p.m., MSNBC (2.27 million) outdrew CNN (1.84 million) in prime time but still averaged almost two million viewers less than Fox News Channel (4.02 million).

In prime time, MSNBC (0.43 rating) still rated behind FNC (0.70) and CNN (0.63) among the coveted adults 25-54 demographic for news programming.
