The downfall of Fox News' former kingpin Bill O'Reilly has helped, too. Fox News viewers may still be expecting more substance in prime time.

Other MSNBC shows finishing first in their respective time slots were "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell" and "The 11 Hour with Brian Williams".
Fox, which has sat atop the ratings for more than 15 years, is also losing ground to both of its rivals when it comes to the "news demo". (That's in the demo and total viewers.) But with CNN and MSNBC on its heels in different dayparts, this last week will prove to be make-or-break for all parties.
