Iowa caucus coverage sets new ratings highs for cable news

The 2016 race for the White House is the ratings gift that keeps on giving for cable news.

Fox News Channel, CNN and MSNBC all saw their largest audiences ever for coverage of the Iowa caucuses on Monday, as Sen. Ted Cruz was victorious on the Republican side and Hillary Clinton squeaked out a victory over Sen. Bernie Sanders in her quest for the Democratic nomination.

Fox News Channel led on the night with 4.46 million viewers from 8 to 11 p.m. Eastern time, up 70% from the 2.63 million viewers who watched its Iowa caucuses coverage in 2012, the previous high.
