Please note: You can view ALL our cable news ratings data, which is regularly updated daily, Monday-Friday (we get the weekend data, too but usually not until Tuesdays, but we post them then).

Today begins a new cable news rating report philosophy here at TVbytheNumbers. In the past, I'd opted for delaying ratings till the end of the week so I could make a nice chart with weekly and historical data from a few shows. Instead, I've decided it's better to provide all the data as soon as we get it in a somewhat less pretty format.

So without further ado, here are all the cable news shows, and all the cable news networks, for all the time periods we have available.
