Unlike other cable news networks, that have seen their ratings fall since the 2008 Presidential election peak, Fox News 5-11pm viewership (P2+) has trended higher since early summer 2009 and is now near the peak levels set around the election in 2008.
I wish I could take credit for the nice chart, but this one is all thanks to the Excel wizardry of reader MikeS.
