Fox News Channel had a decisive victory Tuesday night in the cable news grab for State of the Union viewers. Rebounding from last year's demo loss to competitors CNN and MSNBC, FNC won the night as the only news net to post gains from 2013, though gross viewership between the three dropped. During President Obama's speech, FOX averaged 1.198 million viewers in the adults 25-54 news demo with Bret Baier anchoring the coverage. That's a 25 percent increase from last year, and total viewers were also up 28 percent, averaging 4.72 million.
