Dan Bongino, a Fox News personality, has climbed in the network’s cable news ratings as a significant draw due to his fiery, cutting-edge reporting on the issues that People care most about.
Bongino addresses several topics that other network hosts neglect. A fresh analysis indicated that Bongino’s Saturday night program was the most-watched primetime cable news program overall.
According to ratings agencies, Bongino attracted 1.199 million viewers in its 9 p.m. ET time period. CNN had 609,000 viewers at the same time that MSNBC had 431,000 viewers.
Brian Kilmeade, host of Fox News at 8 p.m. ET, garnered 1.19 million total viewers. CNN has 529 thousand total viewers, whereas MSNBC has 463 thousand.
On Saturday, Bongino’s show was also the most-watched primetime cable news program.
According to Bongino’s bio:
Daniel John Bongino (born December 4, 1974) is an American conservative political commentator, radio show host, and author. He served as a New York City Police Department (NYPD) officer from 1995 to 1999 and as a Secret Service agent from 1999 to 2011.
Bongino ran unsuccessfully for Congress three times as a Republican. Now, he is the host of the syndicated conservative talk radio program The Dan Bongino Show on Westwood One and the Fox News program Unfiltered with Dan Bongino.
Here are some more details.
Around 9 p.m. ET, Bongino attracted a total of 1.19 million viewers. In the same time period, CNN got 219 000 viewers and MSNBC had 315 000. Around 8 p.m., Brian Kilmeade of Fox News had 1.06 million people, CNN had 282,000, and MSNBC had 282,000.
Despite Bongino, Fox News continues to dominate television news, according to Conservative Brief’s Martin Wlash, who added:
“Fox News host Greg Gutfeld also received fantastic news this week after his show “Gutfeld!” has ruled late-night television, averaging 2.1 million viewers through 2022, Nielsen Media Research showed, the Washington Times reported.”
“The size of that viewing audience bests both NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’ and ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and also consistently trumps such cable rivals as Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’ and HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ and ‘Real Time With Bill Maher,’” the report said.
The Fox News Channel continues to dominate the cable news market, and according to a recent measurement of television viewing, one of the network’s programs was once again the highest-rated program of the week.
According to AdWeek, “The Five” was the most-watched show in the 25-54 demographic last week, garnering 390,000 viewers in the coveted advertiser demographic, greatly outpacing Jake Tapper’s 128,000 viewers on CNN and an unquantifiable number for MSNBC in the same 5 p.m. EDT time slot.
Incidentally, in the 11 p.m. EDT time slot, Fox News’ late-night comedy show “Gutfeld!” — helmed by The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld — was also popular last week, averaging 2.2 million viewers, according to Walsh’s analysis.
