Fox News Channel crushed MSNBC and CNN yet again during the busy news month of October, topping both networks combined among total viewers.

FNC averaged 1.7 million total viewers to finish as the most-watched basic cable network for the 28th straight month. Rupert Murdoch’s cable news network also topped all of basic cable during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m. ET for the fifth consecutive month despite heavy competition from Major League Baseball playoffs and other major sporting events, such as NFL and NBA games.

Fox News averaged 2.8 million primetime viewers as ESPN averaged 2.7 million and TBS picked up 2.5 million to round out the top three. MSNBC finished fourth, averaging 1.5 million primetime viewers and CNN finished a dismal ninth while failing to crack the one-million viewer plateau and finishing behind networks such as Hallmark Channel and HGTV.

In the total day category, only Fox News averaged more than 1 million viewers with ESPN, MSNBC, Nickelodeon and TBS rounding out the top five. CNN averaged 689,000 viewers as its audience continues to shrink – dropping five percent compared to the same week last year while both FNC and MSNBC gained viewers.

FNC was up across the board compared to last year, with the biggest increase being a whopping 25 percent gain in primetime. In addition to the five percent drop in total audience, CNN fell 16 percent in the key demo of adults age 25-54.

“Hannity” averaged 3.5 million viewers to finish the month as the most-watched program on cable news, followed by “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle,” “The Five” and “Special Report with Bret Baier.” “Hannity” has now finished first for seven straight months. MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” finished sixth, averaging 2.6 million viewers.

“Hannity” has dominated 2018, finishing No. 1 in all three quarters and nine of out of the 10 months among total viewers.

The most-watched CNN program on cable news among total viewers was “Cuomo Prime Time,” which finished No. 23 – behind 14 Fox News and eight MSNBC programs.

Among the key demo, Fox News had nine of the 10 most-watched cable news programs with “Maddow” finishing seventh. This is the first month since Feb. 2017 that “Maddow” failed to crack the top five among both total viewers and the demo.

“FOX & Friends,” “America’s Newsroom,” “Outnumbered,” “Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner,” “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino,” “The Five,” “Special Report with Bret Baier,” “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and “The Ingraham Angle” all beat their timeslot competition on MSNBC and CNN combined in total viewers. During the month of Oct., “America’s Newsroom,” “Outnumbered,” “The Five” and “Tucker Carlson Tonight” also beat MSNBC and CNN combined in the demo.

In addition, Howie Kurtz’s “MediaBuzz” crushed CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” with the FNC media program averaging 1.5 million viewers compared to 767,000.

2112 - 11/1/2018 at 02:17 AM

Interesting. Fox's prime time viewership is less than the number of votes Hillary beat Trump by in the last election. Those 3 million votes didn't make Hillary president, and those 2.8 million viewers don't make Fox News any more credible.

Howard Stern has a larger audience than all of those networks combined.

So true.

FOX is nothing more than a propaganda wing of the Trump WH. FOX is complicit in advancing his conspiracy theories and vice a versa. Beyond an occasional one-off (example - Leslie Stahl), Trump won't be interviewed by any other cable network because he knows he would be challenged more than he is capable of answering or answering with any semblance of the truth.

Also several of Trump's inner circle staff have come from where? FOX of course. For example Bill Shine & Kimberly Guilfoyle both were let go by FOX for inappropriate behavior and sexual misconduct scandals. Their sexual scandals make them a perfect fit to hang with the Trumps - Guilfoyle is Donnie Jr's new girlfriend and Shine is deputy chief of staff for communications.

FOX and Trump = one happy family. MAGA.

No, it doesn't. It does show which networks are being watched, just as the title of the thread contends.
Advertisers like higher ratings and are willing to pay more for commercials on the networks that have higher ratings.

Key demo for whom? This matters greatly.

I’m which dayparts?

Impressive for basic cable. How does this compare to online viewership?

Fox News averaged 2.8 million primetime viewers as ESPN averaged 2.7 million and TBS picked up 2.5 million to round out the top three. MSNBC finished fourth, averaging 1.5 million primetime viewers and CNN finished a dismal ninth while failing to crack the one-million viewer plateau and finishing behind networks such as Hallmark Channel and HGTV.


Clearly Fox wins here. But how telling is this of how poor the cable TV industry is in todays smartphone world? 2.8 million viewers? That’s it????? Among 350 million people?

quote:
“Hannity” averaged 3.5 million viewers to finish the month as the most-watched program on cable news, followed by “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle,” “The Five” and “Special Report with Bret Baier.” “Hannity” has now finished first for seven straight months.

“Hannity” has dominated 2018, finishing No. 1 in all three quarters and nine of out of the 10 months among total viewers.


Remember folks, ratings are measured to determine ad rates and nothing more. Looking into it further than that does yourself a huge disservice. Otherwise, you’d have to crown Howard Stern well over Hannity. Howard has quadruple the amount of viewers.

The big takeaway from this article is how minuscule cable TV has become in a digital world.

Dayparts are various blocks of hours during the day, such as 6am-10am or 7pm-midnight. Research clearly shows when most people listen to or watch a medium, therefore ratings reports break down ratings by dayparts so that advertisers can see which shows win in each daypart. Then they can break it down further by age group. That’s why it really means nothing when a medium says they are #1, because you have to ask, “#1 in what?”

Absolutely. I can only speak for myself but when I want intelligent, objective insight on immigration, voter’s rights or any other issues on the ballots I choose NPR.

Since none of the Faux news koolaid drinkers can give any insight into who or what this key demographic is, I’ll just say what we already know.

Key Demo: Crotchety octogenarians and religious fanatics who fear the democrat boogeyman is coming for their precious assault rifles and think gays and people of color are out to destroy their precious way of white conservative life.

So was FOX started because they figured the guy that lived in the WH could use them decades later?

Speaking of FOX, how many of you watch football on FOX EVERY Sunday?

Triggered- caused by particular action, process or situation. Here I can even use it in a sentence for ya.
Anytime someone questions Fox News or Trumpolini you are “triggered” and feel the need to go on the defensive.
Any time someone mentions the word gun you are “triggered” and go on a diatribe about the 2nd amendment.

For someone who is supposedly an independent you are always quick to stick by the Republican guns at every opportunity.

Who brought skin color into a discussion about the demographic? I did, what of it demographic implies things like age, socio-economic status, religion, ethnicity, nationality... You can ignore it all you want but it doesn’t change that racism is still a major issue in our society that is not going to go away as long as it is still prevalent....or people continue to refuse to acknowledge its existence.

It's really has nothing to do whatsoever about when they became a network years ago & prior to Trump being in the White House.

It's more about the evolution of the station and the stances they take such as supporting / backing up the daily factually incorrect things Trump says about issues such as The Constitution and our laws & that network being complicit in peddling conspiracy theories such as the ridiculous "deep state" that Trump & Fox have used to tarnish the FBI and CIA.

Fox is evolving more to the left than the right the last few years. But way more important is that many upper level members of the FBI & CIA did a fine job of tarnishing themselves. What is a disgrace is the lack of attention the other networks give that situation. It's called bias. The left doesn't think they are biased because those networks do their thinking for them. Seek the truth where ever it is and you will be enlightened.

That's one of the most hilarious lines I've heard in years unless by some measure someone would think that FOX, which is like 1000 standard deviations away from center to the right, and if by any chance it moves 1 standard deviation back towards the center...then evolving to the left would be accurate.

Thanks, I didn't know of that term. I've heard those blocks as being used like "the prime time metrics for ages XXX-to-XXX"
Laugh-In was described as #1 for 16-21 year olds for their time slot. (Didn't hurt that age group that Goldie Hawn and other females danced some of scenes in bikinis.)

x2. I wish it would be illegal to demonstrate a bias if you market your organization as a news outlet. There should be strict penalties for doing it. I hope Trump fixes the fake news problem rather than cry about it everyday on Twitter. Speaking of crying, I wonder how Kavanaugh is holding up from his victimization. Mueller demands and launches an investigation when he was accused.

That's funny. I wonder when the dictionary will modify the definition of "fake news" to match his own. Maybe while they are at it they can change the definition of Mexico to mean US taxpayers when referring to who is paying for a wall.

Just shows what a hard hitting journalist Hannity is. I'm almost surprised Trump didn't pick Hannity as the new attorney general over the fake news CNN guy. Then again, Hannity is too valuable to Trump at his propaganda network to remove him from his position there.

What about FOX's own Judge Jeanine Pirro? She certainly has no biases, & we know that Trump loves to stock with TV personalities. It would be a win / win - Win for Trump & win for Pirro. Not so much for the millions of Americans, but our interests certainly are subordinate to Trump's. Isn't this the way the system is supposed to work?

Careful what you wish for! Couldn't disagree more. You are basically calling for muzzling op-ed. The rest of it all is just stupid old boring news. The press has always had different voices, since it began. Remember that little Constitutional detail, "Freedom of the press"?

News is just news - weather, sports, the latest masscree, what have you. I'm not conservative and I get my news from Fox on AM radio, never heard of a liberal hurricane, a conservative forest fire, a far left cat rescue, a nazi lost kid.

I’m calling for journalistic integrity, which I believe is a matter of national security. Without journalstic integrity, we have an ignorant and uninformed public. Deliberate attempts to blend op-ed with factual reporting, or spin, has nothing to do with an op-ed, which are always labeled as such to inform the public. But tabloids like CNN and Fox News intentionally blur the line, and conduct factual reporting with a clear spin and bias, outside of their op-ed segments, which I still argue should be illegal as a matter of national security. They’ve both helped start this civil war between the right and the left, and continue to pour gas on the fire every day.


BrerRabbit - 11/10/2018 at 08:48 PM

I get your complaint re journalistic integrity. That is an ethical, not a legal, concern.


BoytonBrother - 11/10/2018 at 09:12 PM

True, but I say make it a legal concern with tighter FCC oversight. In the same way tobacco and alcohol can’t “market” their products to kids, a tabloid should have to market itself as entertainment, and not news. Something, anything to stop the tabloids like CNN and Fox News from calling themselves “news”.

Surely there are other "Newsworthy" things happening on this Planet.

Maybe not.

So CNN should not report on Trump? Did you feel the same way about Fox News when the reported on Obama every day?

BTW, name one CNN or MSNBC reporter or talking head that ever appeared on stage at a political rally.

You missed the point. Tell me the last time you saw a CNN staff member step on stage with a president to do a rally to amp up the base. That is the point.

Trump is the POTUS. Everything he says or does has an effect on all of us. He should be covered completely. Ignoring his remarks or actions does a great disservice to the people. If he doesn't want negative coverage, he should start acting like a freaking president instead of a reality show host.

I would add that Trump, like no other previous President creates and manifests controversies on a daily basis (see texts & his spoken words). It appears some of these are thought out & some are impulsive. He also lies on a daily basis. At this stage he is closing in on 7000 lies since his first day in office.

As a result, the free press has a responsibility and obligation to report on these, as well as anything he does that is positive. How often the reporting is done is up to the network or newspaper. Individuals can choose to watch networks that cover Trump like this or can choose to watch reruns of Gilligan's Island instead on another network.

You would learn more from sitcoms than the news. Gilligan's Island is an apt allegory for the current administration. I would add the Addam's Family - isolated, vain, petty, inept.

Just turn off your TV, it is garbage. Always has been. Talking about integrity of CNN vs Fox or whatever is a joke, it is the boob tube, designed to program you into drooling idiocy.

All ratings measure is how many flies are attracted to one steaming pile over another. The higher the ratings, the bigger the pile and the more brainwashed flies buzzing around it.
