The results are in and Fox News is the most watched cable news network for the 81st straight week leaving CNN and MSNBC in the dust.
From August 29 through September 4th, Fox News had averaged 1.4 million total viewers and was the only network to surpass the one million viewers mark. Even when combining the total average audience for CNN and MSNBC, it still doesn’t beat the total viewership of Fox News.
The Fox News primetime lineup has dominated its competition with an average of 2.1 million viewers, while MSNBC had 1.4 million and worse yet, CNN sinking to only 635,000. The networks compete in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demographic with Fox News showing double the amount of viewers as its competitors.
President Biden’s speech last week showed a lack of viewership as both CNN and MSNBC heavily advertised the speech with bleak results. Meanwhile Fox News most popular show “The Five” boasted an average of 3.3 million viewers crushing the other networks.
From the morning shows to the primetime lineup at Fox News, the Nielsen media research has shown a higher average number of viewers than all other cable news networks.
