Fox News was far and away the most watched cable news network during and immediately after Tuesday night's State of the Union speech.
Here are the ratings from Nielsen Media Research. (The times for when the post-speech coverage started and ended vary by channel. But these are the times the three cable channels themselves submitted to Nielsen in these categories.)
During the speech (which started at 9:10 p.m.):
Fox News channel: 4,960,000 persos in overall viewership (1,634,000 in 25-54) CNN: 2,984,000 overall (1,200,000 in 25-54) MSNBC: 2,504,000 overall (836,000 in 25-54)
