Cable News Trends

Through November, Fox News was near its 2009 annual primetime ratings peak (for the adults 25-54 demo targeted by cable news advertisers), while MSNBC held at its low ratings point of the year and CNN was just off its low ratings point.

For anyone wondering, CNN’s June/July ratings spike was courtesy of the Michael Jackson death frenzy.
