Fox Triumphs in Ratings for 29th Straight Month, CNN Couldn’t Even Beat the Hallmark Channel

Looks like there’s more bad news for CNN and MSNBC in the ratings wars.

For the 29th month in a row, Fox was the number one network on cable, according to the Neilsen ratings.

CNN and MSNBC couldn’t even beat the Hallmark Channel and their holiday movies or Nickelodeon which features things like Sponge Bob.

From Daily Caller:


MSNBC finished fourth in each category behind Fox, ESPN, and Hallmark, while CNN finished sixth in each category. CNN lost to USA Network in primetime and Nickelodeon in total day.

TOTAL DAY:

Fox News: 1,475,000

MSNBC: 1,024,000

CNN: 761,000

PRIMETIME:

Fox News: 2,439,000

MSNBC: 1,835,000

CNN: 1,119,000

And Fox captured the important 25-54 demographic.

From Fox News:

During the prime-time hours of 8-11 p.m., Fox News finished behind only NFL-heavy ESPN as the second-most-watched network, averaging 2.4 million viewers. FNC dominated cable news competition in prime time, as MSNBC averaged 1.8 million viewers and CNN averaged 1.1 million.

Fox News’ “Hannity” averaged over three million viewers to take the title of most-watched cable news program, while MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” finished second, averaging 2.9 million. “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Five,” “The Ingraham Angle” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” rounded out the top six, while CNN’s most-watched show was “Cuomo Prime Time,” which finished No. 23 overall with an average viewership of 1.2 million. CNN’s most-watched show finished behind 14 Fox News programs and eight shows on MSNBC.

Fox Business also dominated, leading for the 18th consecutive month in business news over the next highest, CNBC.

Fox has also started a new on-demand subscription service, “Fox Nation” which will include folks like Britt McHenry, Diamond and Silk and Tyrus’ “Un-PC.”

THats funny! Not at all surprised. People catch on to new sources who fabircate the news to fit their agenda. All we want are the cold heart facts. We dont need all the fake drama to go with it. Those with the lowest ratings are always the providers of fake anti american news.

I watched the Brian Kilmeade 40 min. on Andrew Jackson & the Miracle of New Orleans. It was really good. Haven’t watched any live content yet but I will in the near future.

I actually enjoy it when Fox has opposing opinions and even the conservatives like Chris Wallace will push back on some things and ask the president questions he might not like.

That’s called being fair and impartial and that’s what CNN and the rest of them need to learn.Yes, I am a Trump supporter and know he is fighting for our nation to make it… Read more »
