Nearly twice as many people tuned into Fox News as they did other cable networks to watch President Donald Trump's address to the nation from the Oval Office on Tuesday.

And the deeper numbers indicate those tuning in are more likely to be opposed to Trump's request for $5.7 billion in funding for a border wall.

Fox News averaged 8 million viewers from 9-9:30 p.m. ET, while MSNBC averaged 4.2 million and CNN averaged 3.6 million sets of eyeballs.

In that key 25-54 age bracket, FNC topped CNN (1.385M) and clobbered MSNBC (811K).

In other words, when it comes to building national engagement, Trump may be The Apprentice but his Democratic foils are the masters.

Immediately following Trump's approximately 10 minute speech, Smith broke down a "number of claims" that were deliberately misleading.

Team India are chilling like villains before ODI series against Australia
Update: Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the upcoming ODI series against Australia and India's Tour of New Zealand. In his last Ranji Trophy for Hyderabad against Punjab , he picked up seven wickets.

During an off-the-record lunch on Tuesday, Trump said that it was not his idea to deliver the speech or visit the southern border, two sources briefed on the meeting told the New York Times. "But that was a bipartisan announcement, and this is an overtly political move by the White House".

The late-night funnyman also took aim at the official Democratic response from Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, which was widely mocked for their wooden delivery and freakish staging, with the pair squished together behind one podium.

Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer released a joint statement on Monday evening calling for equal air time.

Smith's analysis drew an angry response on Twitter from many of Fox News' conservative fans.

Over on ABC, Jimmy Kimmel discussed whether it was acceptable for the networks to "give the President a forum to lie to us on television".

"Now that the television networks have made a decision to air the President's address, which if his past statements are any indication will be full of malice and misinformation, Democrats must immediately be given equal airtime", they wrote.
