Primetime Cable Ratings: November 6, 2018

The mid-term elections took front and center on the cable ratings, with FOX News taking the top numbers. Over the three hours of primetime, FNC averaged 7.8 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in Adults 18-49. That ties NBC as the second best A18-49 demo rating of the night, for all networks, and is the most watched network of the night, topping all broadcast networks.

CNN was a clear #2 on the night, in total viewers, but has that rare time where it topped FOX NEWS in the A18-49 demographic, averaging a 1.9 rating, making it #1 of all networks in the category.

Outside of politics, college basketball is ramping up, with two games in the top 15. The two ESPN games averaged over 2.4 million viewers and a 1.0 demographic rating.
