Fox News Channel Beat Everyone in Viewers on Midterm Election Night

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Fox News Channel was No. 1 in total viewers for Tuesday night’s midterm election coverage, when all of cable news — and most of broadcast — programming was halted for race results. Fox News even beat each of the broadcast nets outright.

CNN finished first in the key news demo, however, which encompasses adults 25-54. Fox News was second by that metric, according to Nielsen. MSNBC was third in cable news’ primetime results in both main Nielsen metrics, though it fared a little better in total viewers than CNN did earlier in the evening.

Isolating just broadcast, it was NBC topping ABC outright to finish No. 1 among the over-the-air channels. CBS came in a pretty distant third.

Below is how primetime (8 p.m. ET – 11 p.m. ET) shook out among all six of the main players. The networks are ranked by total viewers and listed in descending order.

Fox News: 7.8 million total viewers/2.4 million adults 25-54
NBC: 5.7 million/2.3 million
ABC: 5.3 million/2 million
CNN: 5.1 million/2.5 million
MSNBC: 4.7 million/1.4 million
CBS: 3.9 million/1.3 million

Obviously the demo rankings would be a bit different.

And here is how cable news looks if one chooses to include the 6 and 7 p.m. hours, which are when polls closed and results began coming in.

Fox News: 6.1 million total viewers/1.8 million adults 25-54
MSNBC: 3.9 million/1.1 million
CNN: 3.9 million/1.9 million

Viewers of the conservative-leaning Fox News Channel are probably pretty happy with how the Senate seats worked out. Not so much on that big House of Representatives loss for Republicans.

Stephen Colbert Reminds America Through Song That ‘We’re Stuck in This Together’ (Video)

Before Stephen Colbert learned the results of the midterm elections live on CBS, the “Late Show” host recorded a song and music video for Tuesday’s cold open.

“We’re Stuck in This Together” was a lovely reminder to Americans on both sides of the proverbial aisle that we’re all still one country with one government — so if this ship goes down, we’re all drowning together.

OK, so maybe it wasn’t that lovely.

“Whichever side won today, the good news is Americans are all in this together,” Colbert said in his spoken setup. “The bad news is the same as the good news.”

Here’s a sampling of the sung chorus: “We may collapse from all the pressure/But at least if we do/we’ll all crumble together.”

We guess that’s reassuring? Catch the rest via the video above.

Posing in a suave black leather jacket and hat, actor Jeff Goldblum proudly wore his “I Voted” sticker on Instagram. In his post caption, Goldblum included an inspirational quote from the fictional President Thomas J. Whitmore from the 1996 film “Independence Day.”

Though “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon lost to fellow Democrat Andrew Cuomo for the New York gubernatorial race in the November primaries, she still voted “because the patriarchy isn’t going to dismantle itself.”

Chrissy Teigen Tells Kamala Harris She’s ‘Not Thrilled’ About Her Voting Experience

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Chrissy Teigen had a message for Kamala Harris on Election Day: She’s not happy that she didn’t receive a sticker for voting.

“Lip Sync Battle” personality Teigen made her displeasure known in response to U.S. Senator and former California Attorney General Harris’ tweet on Tuesday, asking voters to urge others to the polls.

“RT if you’ve voted and want your followers to do the same,” Harris tweeted Tuesday morning.

To which Teigen responded, “I did but I didn’t get a sticker because it was by mail. Needless to say I am not thrilled and am feeling rather left out.”

Teigen added, “Please kamala, I beg you to make sure all future voters get a sticker so no one else has to feel what I’m feeling, right now.”

Harris might have quickly been let off the hook, though, as Teigen turned her accusing gaze to a potential suspect in Stickergate 2018 — her husband, singer John Legend.

Teigen was shortly informed by another Twitter user, “My absentee mail in vote (in LA too) came with a sticker. Always does.”

“ummmm @johnlegend did you throw away my f—ing sticker??” Teigen wrote in response.

Way to sticker it to the man, Chrissy Teigen.
