Fox News’ Cable Ratings Are A Sight To Behold

( On Tuesday, the lowest-rated Fox News show in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age bracket nearly quadrupled the highest-rated MSNBC show in the demo.

All FNC weekday shows had growth in overall viewers and the 25-54 demo in the first quarter of 2022, whereas all CNN and MSNBC programs saw reductions. The network has the top 10 cable news shows in overall viewers and the top 14 in the younger 25-54 audience. The Five on FNC continued to break cable news records by becoming the first non-primetime program to lead all cable for two consecutive quarters.
Additionally, daytime and late-night shows like FNC’s The Faulkner Focus, America Reports, and Gutfeld! had their highest-rated quarters in network history. At the same time, Jesse Watters Primetime, which was just introduced, became cable news’ fastest-growing program. Furthermore, since the onset of the Ukraine-Russia conflict and Russia’s invasion, FNC has maintained its position as the go-to source for breaking news, outperforming CNN by double digits and outperforming MSNBC by triple digits across the board.
Fox News not only won the demo in every time slot, but even its lowest-rated show outscored CNN and MSNBC’s highest-rated show by a large margin. With 221,000 viewers, Fox’s America Reports at 2 p.m. was the lowest-rated show in the demo.

Meanwhile, Erin Burnett’s OutFront was CNN’s top-rated show in the demo, with 147,000 viewers.

MSNBC’s top-rated show was MSNBC Prime at 9 p.m., drawing 116,000 demo viewers, little over half of America Reports’ 221,000.

CNN had 504,000 viewers.
