The data was a bit more jumbled for last night due to coverage of President Obama's address. For the 8pm hour particularly there were several short duration segments where I noted duration next to the program name.

FOX News Channel was the most-watched cable news channel during the President’s addresson troop withdrawal from Afghanistan.
