    By Alex Weprin on November 3, 2010 1:50 PMThe first bits of ratings data are beginning to trickle in from yesterday, and it is looking great for Fox News Channel.

    Here is what the cable networks drew on average From 8-11 PM ET:

    •FNC: 6.957 million total viewers, 2.43 million A25-54
    •CNN: 2.423 million total viewers, 1.03 million A25-54
    •MSNBC: 1.945 million total viewers, 669,000 A25-54
    Compared to the 2006 midterm elections, Fox News more than doubled its total viewership, while CNN was down significantly and MSNBC was down slightly.

    Not surprisingly, the numbers for all three networks are down significantly from election night 2008.

    Update: Numbers from 7 PM-1 AM and 7 PM- 3 AM are after the jump.

    7PM ET-1 AM ET

    FNC: 6.078 million total viewers, 2.184 million A25-54

    CNN: 2.081 million total viewers, 917,000 A25-54

    MSNBC: 1.698 million total viewers, 638,000 A25-54

    7 PM ET-3 AM ET

    FNC: 5.051 million total viewers, 1.860 million A25-54

    CNN: 1.745 million total viewers, 778,000 A25-54

    MSNBC: 1.495 million total viewers, 584,000 A25-54

    Early indications show that FNC may have a clean sweep, even beating the broadcast network election coverage. That said, the final numbers for the broadcast networks will not be available until tomorrow morning, and they could be very different than the preliminary ratings.

    I watched Fox, and Sky News, and the BBC for election coverage. It's weird that the Brits take such an interest in our elections that they ran specials on the Mid-Terms!!

    On the BBC, they had quite an intelligent, slightly liberal, American analyst who is one of the very few people I have heard talk about the TEA Parties with intelligence. She corrected someone who said that the TEA Parties were a 'racist reaction to Obama's election' by explaining that, in fact, the TEA Parties started under Bush as a reaction to expanding Government.

    I thought all three did really good coverage.

    Then why are they always claiming that nothing should be blamed on Bush?

    That's a load of bull. Ron Paul's Libertarian Tea Parties during the Bush administration had absolutely nothing to do with the Tea Party Movement which began in Jan 2009.

    A "tea party" to protest Paterson's taxes - YNN, Your News Now

    A "tea party" to protest Paterson's taxes


    By: Neil St. Clair

    BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- Just call it the Binghamton Tea Party without the tea. A group of locals took to the South Washington Street Bridge Saturday and poured a few gallons of soda into the Susquehanna River to protest Governor Paterson's new proposed taxes.
    Around two dozen protesters showed up, mostly outraged by the governor's obesity tax on soda.

    They want a freer economy with less government intervention.

    "We really want to see a sense of fiscal responsibility from the government and have them get their hands out of our pockets. The government has gotten out of hand and out of control in the last few decades and we're taking notice of that," said Trevor Leach, chairman of the Young Americans for Liberty in New York State.
    Several of the protesters wore indian headdresses similar to the band of 18th century patriots who dumped tea in Boston Harbor to express outrage about British taxes.
