Spillover from Tuesday’s election night coverage grabbed the top spots in the Wednesday cable ratings this week, as Fox News continued to pull impressive numbers with a peak rating of 2.1 in adults 18-49 at 3:00 a.m. in the early hours of the morning. CNN held in there as well with a 2.1 in the same hour, rounding out a record-breaking night for both networks.

Meanwhile, FX’s “American Horror Story: Roanoke” managed to tick back up from its previous 1.2 to a 1.3 rating this week, staying within the same range that it’s been comfortably sitting at ever since the post-season premiere dip. In addition, “Queen Sugar” dipped one tenth from a 0.5 to a 0.4 on OWN, while the post-election special of “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” grabbed a 0.5 on TBS.
