ONE-HOUR CNN SPECIAL REPORT HOSTED BY CHIEF NATIONAL SECURITY CORRESPONDENT JIM SCIUTTO

The one-hour documentary explores the belief by many in the military and civilian experts that war in space is inevitable. The American way of life depends on satellites in space, such as daily commutes, to withdrawing money from a bank, to the soldiers and intelligence agencies defending the U.S. abroad and at home. U.S. adversaries, like China and Russia, are pushing an arms race in space, taking aim at America with a dizzying array of weapons seemingly borrowed from science fiction, from lasers to kamikaze and kidnapper satellites.

CNN #1 IN CABLE NEWS IN OCTOBER

First Time in 15 Years CNN Has Beaten Fox News in Both Total Day AND Prime Time Demos 

 CNN Beats Fox News for First Time in Seven Years in Total Day Demo

CNN Beats Fox News for 7th Time in Last 14 Months in Prime Time Demo

 Tops MSNBC for 28th Straight Month

CNN Has Its Most-Watched Month in 11 Years

CNN dominated cable news in October, finishing the month as the undisputed leader.

With the presidential election coming to a close, CNN finished number one in October in the all-important demo of adults 25-54 in total day and M-Su prime time. This marks the first time in 15 years that CNN was #1 across both dayparts.  In Total Day, CNN beat Fox News for the first time in seven years (since Jan. 2009). In prime time (M-Su), CNN was number one among adults 25-54 for the 7th time in the last 14 months (Oct-16, Jul-16, Apr-16, Feb-16, Dec-15, Oct-15 and Sept-15). The last time CNN had this many monthly wins over Fox News in a 14-month period was nearly 15 years ago.

And, CNN has now topped MSNBC for 28 straight months in Total Day (25-54 and P2+) and in prime time (25-54), the longest winning streak in eight years.

October was also CNN’s most-watched month in eight years (since 2008) in Total Day among adults 25-54 and CNN enjoyed its highest total viewer delivery since September 2005.  In prime time, CNN posted its highest adults 25-54 delivery and 2nd highest total viewer delivery since October 2008.  The network had impressive growth this month as well, increasing its audience by double to triple digits compared to last year.

Of particular note, CNN ranked in the Top Five in ALL OF CABLE in October among total viewers (#3 in Total Day and prime time) and adults 25-54 (#5 in Total Day and #4 in prime time).
