Despite its record week, “Morning Joe” still failed to eclipse “Fox & Friends,” which drew an audience of 1.4 million.

Fox & Friends” has spent 202 months as the number one show in its time slot, according to a Fox News press release.

MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” is also riding high from its recent ratings boost and was the number one show across all of cable news this past week, garnering 3.32 million viewers. Maddow comfortably edged out her rival Sean Hannity, who pulled in 2.99 million viewers.

Hannity is still ahead of Maddow for the month by about 200,000 viewers per episode, according to the press release.

This is now the 200th month in row in which Fox News has been the most watched network in prime time and throughout the day.
