Fox News’ Sean Hannity beat MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in viewers on Thursday, April 19th — despite the fact that Maddow interviewed former FBI director James Comey that night.

AdWeek reports that Hannity had 3.525 million total viewers on Thursday while Maddow had 3.417 million. CNN’s Anderson Cooper had 1.115 million viewers at the same time.

Maddow had a particularly good month in March, overtaking Hannity as the most watched cable host. Previously, Hannity was the cable host ratings king for several months. (RELATED: Fox News Responds — Sean Hannity Has Our ‘Full Support’)
