‘Here to Stay’ Newsmax Secures Ratings Win Over Fox News

Could there be a new king of conservative news? Monday night Newsmax’s show “Greg Kelly Reports” surpassed Fox News’s “The Story with Martha MacCallum” marking the first time the smaller conservative competitor has bested Fox News in the key 24-54 age demographic.

“Greg Kelly Reports” attracted over 229,000 viewers compared to the 203,000 average views who tuned in to watch MacCallum’s show.

The Daily Caller reports:

“We’re here to stay,” Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said Tuesday according to CNN. “The ratings are showing that.”

Despite the win, Fox News still typically heavily outpaces Newsmax, ranking four times higher during any hour, Nielsen data indicates. For example, Fox News had an average of 1.36 million viewers throughout Monday compared to Newsmax’s 316,000 viewers – despite the latter network’s win at the 7 p.m. time slot.

Additionally, Fox News has continued its reign as the most-watched cable news network for primetime shows with total viewers. The network had 1.3 million viewers with 198,000 for the key demographic across the total day for the week of Nov. 30-Dec. 6, Nielsen data shows. Fox News also saw 2.7 million viewers with 412,000 in the key demographic for primetime shows that week.

“Greg Kelly Reports” was not the best-ranking show Monday night, despite beating out MacCallum. CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” had 423,000 viewers for the key demographic and MSNBC’s new show “The ReidOut” averaged 280,000 viewers.

It seems that President Trump’s tweets urging Americans to turn their TVs to the smaller conservative outlet Newsmax are paying off. In the past months, President Trump has become increasingly critical of Fox News especially after the outlet prematurely called Arizona for Joe Biden.

I wish we had it here on Spectrum but we do not. I used to watch Fox News in the morning and would tune in to “The Five” and Breit Reports, but I no longer do that. I only watch Tucker, Hannity, Laura and on Saturday’s Waters’ World and Judge Jeanine. FoxNews sold us out. God bless.

This can’t possibly be a surprise to the bean counters over at Fox. They gave up on the President and his base long ago, so there influence with conservatives has been waning for a long time now. Fox has been so busy trying to jump on the liberal media wagon that it’s lost its direction and its viewers. The 3 conservative stalwarts and Pete Hegseth over at Fox still get their share of viewers, but honestly they should be looking at moving on to another conservative network where they’ll be appreciated so much more.

i quit watching tv in 2007 due to the format change to LB and fnc de-evolved into cnn. i get all of my news online from:gatestone, cns, minuteman news, and what a finger is to chaotic to find anything useful on it. the net is so badly censored, that virus detectors are being used to stop you from visiting a site. before they set it you to time out when clicking on a site. duck duck go is being slowed down in searching vs google now.

I’ve told Lou and others at Fox (before they also get the liberal boot) to “watch your back”. Many if not all didn’t listen. I don’t know what they hope to gain at Fox.

AS IT SHOULD BE! Fox isn’t what even Murdoch made it initially, right leaning most of the time. That’s what made Fox News Channel! Why would anyone want to change that success, such as it was, UNLESS THEY DIDN’T LIKE AMERICA BEING AND KEEPING THE COUNTRY GREAT, with Donald Trump, even if you don’t like Trump’s style. For years I have been telling good Americans that the Chicoms especially, have told us they would ASSIST American leaders with socialism until one fine day we would awaken and find we were all communists. FNC has made itself a leader in reporting and analyzing news, just as leaders in other parts of American society (political, religious, social, entertainment, etc.) have been “assisted” by the Communists just like Fox in the “news” area.

Something else the Chicoms told us . …..”WE WILL SELL YOU THE ROPE YOU HANG YOURSELF WITH”. Evidently that day has arrived. God help the USA, (if we can get rid of communist traitors in the democrat party).

Good for NewsMax, I’ve pretty much shifted away from Fox, as I can’t see wasting my time listening to their “contributors” spew lies when I tuned to Fox for true news. NewsMax has only one program where they even let leftists hold the mike. Hopefully they will cancel that one soon. Like Trump says, “NewsMax, you’ll like NewsMax, I like it, too.”

Newsmax is in HD now and has good anchors / show hosts, much improved, on par now with OAN. Fox News got taken over by left leaning executives, going down the toilet. If i wanted leftist news i would watch CNN or MSNBC, it made no sense for Fox News to offend its niche demographic and give it up to OAN and Newsmax, what idiots.

Your headline outperforms your actual story. We find that FOX News far out performs any other cable news outlets during primetime which is 7PM to 10PM CST / 8PM to 11PM EST.
