Many of their viewers may have been backing the losing side in the battle over the government shutdown, but Fox News attracted 2.64 million viewers during the 8:00 p.m. hour on Wednesday to its coverage of the final Congressional vote on the budget deal that ended the shutdown, according to TV Newser. CNN’s numbers were also up, with 1.59 million viewers tuning in at 8:00. MSNBC’s biggest audience came an hour later when 1.44 million viewers tuned in the channel. (It retained that audience at 10:00 p.m. when the House voted.)
