With the April ratings CNN was up 80 percent in Prime Time.

Sounds like it is making huge gains, but then you remember that the Boston Marathon bombings happened in April and you can figure out why the Prime Time climb.

Fox News also got a bump in Prime Time (although just 9%) and to no ones surprise they won the April ratings averaging 2 million viewers.

CNN came in with 920,000 and MSNBC with 686,000.

MSNBC was the only cable net to fall in Prime Time. The network that has no real journalists on staff during the Prime Time hours, lost their way during the bombing coverage. Their PT numbers fell 10 percent.

The O'Reilly Factor was once again the king of cable news setting the pace with 3.1 million viewers.
