Fox News Channel is the only cable news outlet to increase its viewership since the election of Donald Trump one month ago, and it is currently tripling the viewership of its main competitors, CNN and MSNBC, The Hill reported.

Here are the latest primetime viewership numbers:

  • Fox News: 2.9 million.
  • CNN: 960,000.
  • MSNBC: 959,000.

Fox also wins handily in the key advertising demographic of 25- to 54-year-olds:

  • Fox News: 1.82 million.
  • CNN: 765,000.
  • MSNBC: 559,000.

According to TVNewser, Fox beat its two main competitors throughout the broadcast day, and saw its highest ratings since the 2012 presidential election.

James Murdoch, CEO of 21st Century Fox, said Tuesday that Fox News, with a more conservative leaning than its competitors, has no plans to change.

"I don't think it's about a pivot from a political bias one way or another, it's about attracting the best talent," he said. "The goal for anyone in the news business is to make sure that you're presenting the news, breaking news, but also providing different perspectives, consistently putting the best product on the air and investing in that product, and that's something we'll continue to do."
