Wednesday night was a big one for MSNBC.

The also ran cable news network notched a rare ratings win. Of course, it took Trump to do it, but still. 

MSNBC’s night of four candidate events scored big in the ratings Wednesday night, beating both Fox News and CNN in the demo and topping CNN among total viewers for the 8-11pm daypart. 

MSNBC’s “Place for Politics” special coverage also handily beat CNN at 8pm and 9pm in both A25-54 and total viewers with the news-making Trump town hall hosted by Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow’s long-form interview with Hillary Clinton respectively.  

This win comes on the heels of MSNBC’s recording setting growth in the first quarter of 2016.  This quarter was the highest for the network in over three years.
