The Rachel Maddow Show, which airs Monday evenings at 9 p.m., brought in a whopping 2.46 million total viewers, making it the highest-rated prime-time show of the day.
Boosted by Maddow, MSNBC also won prime time in the key 25-54 age demographic with 170,000 average viewers. The out anchor's show received 220,000 viewers from this category.
In terms of full-day ratings, Fox News won for both total and demo viewer averages, due especially to their roundtable discussion program The Five, which was the highest-rated show of the day at 2.64 million total viewers.
MSNBC came in second place with a 1.01 million viewer average on the day, while CNN took a rather distant third at 460,000.
