Donald Trump counter-programmed Thursday's GOP primary debate on Fox with his own prime time event. So whose show scored a bigger audience?
Answer: Fox's debate. But it was the second lowest rated debate of the season. So Trump is certain to take credit for hurting the channel's total viewership.
Fox News Channel's Trump-less debate had 12.5 million viewers between 9 and 11 p.m. Eastern, according to Nielsen.
By comparison, two of the cable channels that showed parts of Trump's event, CNN and MSNBC, had about 2.7 million viewers combined.
