Fox News has once again crushed its leftist competitors, blowing them out of the water. And that’s not the only good news for Fox News; while it’s obviously doing well by comparison and shredding MSNBC and CNN, it’s doing well by objective metrics too, blowing away rating records as Americans tune in to one of the few mostly non-woke networks left.
That’s according to some new data on recent ratings and what shows are taking off, data that shows Fox News was garnering about 1.3 million viewers on average between July 4th and 10th while having a whopping 84 of the top 100 cable news shows. So about 1 out of every 300 Americans was watching Fox during that time and more than 4 of every 5 shows in the top 100 were Fox News programs.
MSNBC, the almost unwatchably woke network, came in a distant second, bringing in around half the average audience as Fox News with just 666,000 average viewers. (Yes, really 666 thousand, indicative enough of what MSNBC is pushing).
Fox News Online reported on that brilliant victory of its related cable division, the data for which came from Nielsen, noting the aforementioned numbers and saying:
Americans turned to Fox News Channel for information and analysis last week as the network beat CNN and MSNBC viewership among both total day and primetime for the 73rd straight week, according to ratings provided by Nielsen Media Research.
Fox News averaged 1.3 million viewers from July 4-10 to finish as the only basic cable network to surpass the one-million viewer benchmark. MSNBC finished second, averaging 666,000, and Hallmark, HGTV and CNN rounded out the top five.
During the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET, Fox News averaged a smidge under two-million viewers as the lineup of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “Hannity” and “The Ingraham Angle” nearly doubled Hallmark, which averaged 1.1 million to finish second. HGTV, MSNBC and TLC rounded out the top five during primetime.
Adding more to that description of the cable division’s massive victory, Fox News moved on from noting the strong general and primetime results to noting its two biggest victories: “The Five” blowing the competition out of the water while its other shows rounded out the top five cable news programs, and bringing in the largest chunk of the key demographic. Reporting on that, Fox News noted:
Fox News also surpassed all of cable news among the key demographic of adults age 25-54, averaging 198,000 total demo viewers and 288,000 during primetime. MSNBC continued to struggle in the all-important category, finishing 33rd during primetime behind a plethora of networks including Animal Planet, Travel Channel, BET, MTV, Freeform and Lifetime.
“The Five” averaged 3.2 million viewers to finish as the most-watched cable news offering, as Fox News finished with 84 of the top 100 cable news telecasts for the week. “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “Jesse Watters Primetime,” “Special Report with Bret Baier” and “The Ingraham Angle” joined “The Five” among the five most-popular shows.
And in that 25-54 demographic, perhaps the most important because of how coveted it is among advertisers, Tucker delivered a whopper of a victory for the network, bringing in over 500,000 members of that demographic on average, something that shows his huge popularity with younger audiences.
Further, this additional victory over the leftist competition represented the 73rd straight week of victory over the left, as Fox News noted on Twitter
