Team Trump is all over Fox News, a programming analysis shows.

Media Research Center reports it poured through 240 hours of programming from the Fox News Channel, CNN and MSNBC that featured a weekday prime-time interview of a presidential candidate or a plainly-identified supporter or surrogate from March 21 to April 15.

"Our study found that FNC spent much more time interviewing [Donald] Trump and his surrogates than either of his GOP competitors," MRC reports in the release of its findings Monday.

Here's the airtime breakdown:

On Fox News Channel:
  • Trump: 178 minutes
  • Texas Sen. Ted Cruz: 120 minutes
  • Ohio Gov. John Kasich: 84 minutes
On CNN:
  • Trump: 106 minutes
  • Texas Sen. Cruz: 133 minutes
  • Ohio Gov. Kasich: 106 minutes
On MSNBC:
  • Trump: 43 minutes
  • Texas Sen. Cruz: 35 minutes
  • Ohio Gov. Kasich: 100 minutes
Adding airtime for the contenders' family members, campaign staff, or designated surrogates, Trump's tally grows to 397 minutes on Fox, compared with 164 minutes for Cruz and 105 minutes for Kasich, MRC reports.
