Fox News has maintained its dominance over other cable news networks over the previous several weeks, with the network surpassing MSNBC and CNN combined in total viewers on Thursday.
According to Mediaite, “Fox News averaged 1.54 million total day viewers and 178,000 demo viewers to land in first place.”
“MSNBC brought in an average of 852,000 total day viewers and 90,000 demo viewers to come in second. CNN, meanwhile, averaged 403,000 total day viewers and 78,000 demo viewers for third,” the report said.
The right-leaning Newsmax ranked fourth overall, followed by NewsNation, where former CNN primetime presenter Chris Cuomo hosts a show, which ranked fifth overall.
Beginning with “The Five,” Fox’s prime-time programming dominated the competition, and the network’s success persisted throughout the year.
Thursday’s ratings for the top three networks were as follows:
Fox News: 1.54 million
Fox News: 178,000
Below is a list of the primetime figures for both the overall audience and the key demo audience (ages 35-54):
Fox News: 245,000
Last week, the cable news program with the best ratings was Tucker Carlson’s, with 3.09 million viewers and 365,000 people in the 25-54 demographic in the United States. On January 6, 2021, he broadcast video footage of a demonstration at the US Capitol Building, which attracted a total of 3.09 million views and 365,000 viewers in the age range of 25-54.
“That audience was enough to beat out the usual top show in cable news, Fox News’s The Five, as well as beat the competition on MSNBC and CNN by miles. In total viewers, Carlson tripled the 8 p.m. competition on MSNBC and sextupled his CNN rival. In the demo, Carlson more than tripled both MSNBC and CNN,” Mediaite reported.
