Preserve Making an attempt, Zuckerville: Fox Information Nonetheless Leads Cable Information Scores Battle

On the heels of getting gleefully achieved their desired end result within the presidential election and less-than-flattering Project Veritas videos, the Jeffrey Zucker-micromanaged CNN has spent the last week on a victory lap, touting their November scores as up 135 % in complete viewers and 209 % within the 25-54 demo (which CNN acted as if was the one worthwhile measurement).

In a digital advert and beneath their farcical banner of “#FactsFirst,” CNN claimed that they’ve grow to be “probably the most watched[SIC] cable community.” However like most issues with probably the most toxic title in information, the info weren’t on their facet.

However on the subject of whether or not extra folks watched CNN than longtime scores king Fox Information, CNN can preserve dreaming as FNC marked its 227th month because the most-watched cable information channel with 1.94 million complete viewers versus CNN’s 1.78 million. And in all of cable tv, FNC’s quantity positioned it in first place for the 53rd month in a row.

If CNN needs to hold its hat on something (which wasn’t saying a lot), it’s separated itself from fellow far-left outfit MSNBC, who had simply over 1.5 million complete viewers.

CNN ought to savor its time within the highlight (or what little there’s left) as MSNBC named Rashida Jones as its new govt on Monday. And final week, MSNBC garnered headlines for naming Jonathan Capehart and Tiffany Cross as Pleasure Reid’s replacements for her previous weekend slot.

However again to FNC’s scores. In each of the persistently necessary instances of a information cycle (morning and primetime), an FNC press launch revealed first-place finishes for Fox & Pals First (693,000 complete viewers and 142,000 in 25-54 demo) and Fox & Pals (1.8 million complete viewers and 374,000 for 25-54).

In a tweet from our buddy RoadMN measuring November ratings throughout 77 exhibits on seven cable information channels, Fox & Pals First completed one spot forward of MSNBC competitor Manner Too Early with Kasie Hunt and 4 spots away from CNN’s Early Begin.

And for Fox & Pals, they completed 5 spots above MSNBC’s Morning Joe and 11 forward of CNN’s New Day.

In primetime, it was a blowout with FNC rivaling (and besting) the printed networks. Right here have been some highlights from the FNC press launch (click on “broaden”):

FNC additionally noticed its highest-rated November on report in primetime throughout complete viewers and in the important thing 25-54 demographic. November additionally marked the eleventh consecutive month this 12 months that the community has completed quantity one amongst of cable throughout primetime complete viewers led by Tucker Carlson Tonight at 8PM/ET. Surpassing each broadcast community except for FOX in complete viewers, FNC continues to outpace NBC, CBS, and ABC along with the cable information competitors in weekday primetime, an ongoing streak since Memorial Day. Moreover, the community edged out broadcast community CBS in the important thing 25-54 demographic in weekday primetime.


A lot of FNC’s applications, in addition to the community’s complete primetime lineup, delivered their highest-rated month within the 25-54 demographic ever, together with Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, FOX Information @ Night time with anchor Shannon Bream and FOX & Pals


FNC’s primetime powerhouse lineup swept the highest spots in cable information throughout the board and the weekday lineup surpassed broadcast in weekday primetime summer time up to now. At 8PM/ET, FNC’s Tucker Carlson Tonight continues to make cable information historical past, marking the primary time {that a} cable information program delivered over 5 million viewers for 2 consecutive months. The 8PM/ET program was additionally the highest-rated for the month in complete viewers with 5.1 million, 1,018,000 within the 25-54 demographic, and 702,000 within the 18-49 demo….At 9PM/ET, Hannity was the quantity one-rated program in the important thing 25-54 demographic, averaging over 1 million viewers (1,046,000) for the primary time in program historical past and adopted because the second most-watched program in cable information, notching 4,982,000 complete viewers and 718,000 within the 18-49 demo.

If CNN wished to honestly declare that it’s the most-watched cable channel, it had an uphill battle as FNC leads all channels in primetime. Sure, each single channel on the dial.

Since Memorial Day weekend, Nielsen Analysis has proven the Fox Information Channel with 4.312 million viewers in primetime versus 3.868 on NBC, 3.483 million for CBS, 3.396 million on ABC, and the Fox broadcast community at 3.007 million.

So whereas they declare victory within the 25-54 demo (558,000 versus 413,000), Zuckerville may need to have its geese in a row earlier than claiming that they’re the most-watched cable information channel and in cable total.
