Liberal news continues its downward spiral. Fox News was ranked the top cable news channel for the 23rd consecutive week and outdrew CNN and MSNBC’s audiences combined.
Fox News reports:
Fox News averaged 1.5 million viewers while no other network passed the one-million-viewer benchmark. ESPN finished second with 699,000 followed by MSNBC’s 670,000. CNN averaged a dismal 474,000 to finish ninth, behind basic cable offerings such as Food Network and Investigation Discovery.
Fox News also dominated during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m., averaging 2.4 million viewers while No. 2 ESPN failed to crack two million average viewers. MSNBC managed 1.2 million to finish third, and CNN attracted an average primetime audience of only 578,000 to finish outside the top ten.
TBS, TNT, Lifetime, Food Network, Discovery Channel, History, INSP, TLC and Hallmark are among the networks to outdraw CNN’s struggling primetime lineup of Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon and the rotation of hosts occupying the 9 p.m. time slot following the termination of Chris Cuomo.
Compared to the same week in 2021, Fox News’ audience grew 10% while CNN dropped 77% and MSNBC shed 63% of last year’s viewership. Fox News also had 14 different programs attract over three million viewers during the week, compared to zero programs that reached that mark for CNN and MSNBC.
