NBC, the only broadcast network to devote the 10 p.m. hour on Tuesday to Super Tuesday coverage, wound up attracting 2.561 million viewers to that effort, and getting edged out by Fox New Channel’s crowd of 2.612 million in the hour, according to Nielsen stats.

 NBC’s cable cousin, MSNBC contributed another 1.47 million viewers — just edging out CNN’s 1.46 million. 

But in primetime overall, CNN’s coverage (1.486 million) beat MSNBC’s (1.386 million) though each came in well behind FNC which averaged 2.84 million in prime.
