The out anchor's show brought in 2.46 million total viewers on Monday evening.

On Monday, Rachel Maddow helped MSNBC achieve more viewers during prime time than either Fox News or CNN, ratings show.

With an average of 1.86 million total viewers during the 8 to 11 p.m. slot, the network beat out Fox News and CNN's prime-time averages of 1.73 million and 529,000 viewers, respectively.

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.

Maddow is currently on a hot streak. Earlier this week, she announced a new podcast project dubbed Rachel Maddow Presents: Déja News, which is set to premiere June 12. The podcast will be co-hosted by MSNBC producer Isaac-Davy Aronson, who Maddow has worked with for 20 years.

In May, her other podcast, Rachel Maddow Presents: Ultra, won the prestigious Hillman Prize for broadcast journalism — the first time the award has gone to a podcast.

Maddow resettled her eponymous MSNBC show from nightly to only Mondays in 2021 so that she could pursue other ventures with NBCUniversal, MSNBC’s parent company.
