MSNBC scored another big ratings feat last week, ranking as the most watched cable-network during primetime hours for the first time in the network's 21-year history.

The network finished ahead of Fox News Channel, Disney, USA and HGTV with an average of 2.33 million viewers between the 8 and 11 p.m. time slot from Monday, July 17 through Friday, July 21. MSNBC had previously topped the other cable news outlets, but this is the first time it has also outranked cable's entertainment networks.

"The Rachel Maddow Show," which airs from 9 to 10 p.m., also did better than Fox News and CNN among total viewers for the fourth week in a row. The network also took the top spot in cable among adults aged 25-54 with an average of 542,000 viewers compared to Fox News' 430,000.

Cable news outlets were swamped with reports of developments on the Russia front, including Jared Kushner's meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer during the 2016 presidential campaign.
