The Media Chart: Trump Rolls, but NFL Shows Signs of Revival

Published on .

The Media Chart is a weekly look at what's topping the rankings and the ratings.

The Trump effect on the media is still going strong after election day, unless any president-elect would have gotten big broadcast numbers in his or her first "60 Minutes" interview after winning. On cable, election night itself was the biggest event of the week by far, with only interloper in the top 10: ESPN's Buffalo-Seattle game on Nov. 7, the night before the vote.
