NEW YORK (AP) - CNN’s “Guns in America” town hall meeting with President Barack Obama was seen by 2.4 million viewers Thursday night, according to early data from the Nielsen rating company.

The 75-minute special, hosted by Anderson Cooper, fell short of Fox News Channel’s audience of 3 million viewers, but outpaced MSNBC, seen by slightly fewer than 1 million.

However, CNN took first place in both the 25-54 and 18-34 demos, outperforming the combined audience for those two rivals.

Among 25-54 viewers, CNN averaged 845,000 viewers, far ahead of Fox News’ 463,000 and MSNBC’s 227,000 viewers. In the 18-34 demo, CNN had 277,000 viewers, while Fox News trailed with 73,000 and MSNBC had 40,000.
