This presidential election has tested the patience of Americans, but it has been pure joy for Fox News, CNN and MSNBC. The wild campaign boosted audiences and ad revenues. But the party is about to be over and media execs are already preparing for the inevitable post-election drop in ratings. We crunch the numbers to see what could be next for the cable news networks in a difficult and changing landscape.
