The ratings are in for Thursday's Republican Presidential debate on FOX versus GOP front-runner Donald Trump's fundraiser on rival networks.

FOX's Michelle Pollino reports:

FOX News Channel's debate won the ratings war during Thursday nights final GOP debate before the Iowa caucus.

The Trump-less FOX debate had an 8.4 household rating, according to early Nielsen data, which is about 11-13 million viewers.

Meanwhile the GOP front runner Donald Trump's event aired on both CNN and MSNBC had about a quarter of the FOX's audience combined.

(Megyn Kelly) "They saw packages being delivered, they saw Muslims, and they did not think that was enough to call the cops. Do you? (Chris Christie) "I think what people should do is use their common sense."

FOX News Channel still holds the record for debate ratings: 24 million tuned in to watch the first debate last August.
