(NATIONAL REVIEW) Last week, MSNBC president Phil Griffin called for an investigation after Fox News’ night-to-night ratings jump for its new lineup, saying it was “impossible.” According to the Nielsen Company, which collects the ratings, it’s not.

Nielsen conducted an investigation of the numbers and found, despite Griffin’s doubts, they were accurate. He had questioned how Fox News’ new primetime line-up nearly doubled its audience in the key 25–54 demographic between its debut last Monday night and Tuesday.
