Fox News had the biggest night on TV while covering the midterm elections, beating all its cable and network news rivals, although viewing figures were down across the board, according to The New York Times
While Republicans were trouncing the Democrats early on Election Night, Fox had the most viewers at the 10 p.m. hour, and it also defeated its competitors in the 25-54 age range that is most preferred by advertisers during that time slot.
However, it appeared as though there was a general show of apathy towards this election cycle compared to 2010, with every network having vastly reduced ratings from four years ago.
Despite Fox News announcing the sweeping GOP victories to its mostly conservative audience, its ratings were down about 10 percent in total viewers and 32 percent in the 25-54 category, the Times reported.
CNN and MSNBC were both down 13 percent in overall viewers, while CNN plunged 12 percent in the 25-54 range from 2010 and MSNBC dropped even more, 22 percent.
During the 10 p.m. hour, Fox News had a bigger audience than its cable and network rivals with 6.6 million total viewers. CBS News came second with 5.4 million. Fox also won the 25-54 category with 1.825 million viewers to 1.548 million for CBS.
