According to ratings data released Wednesday by Nielsen, MSNBC’s prime-time programs averaged 2.578 million total viewers, easing ahead of Fox News Channel (2.240 million) and CNN (1.398 million). In the key demographic of viewers 25-54, the demo coveted by major national advertisers, MSNBC was #1, with 471,000 to CNN’s 415,000 and FNC’s 355,000–a rare third-place finish for Fox, which has held onto first place for years.

With four weekly wins in a row, MSNBC is on track to beat Fox News in prime (among total viewers and in the demo) for the month of December, with just days left to go.
