Fox News just announced that they’ve officially topped the ratings charts yet again.
In a report published Tuesday, Fox News Channel revealed that it “finished a historic third quarter as the first cable network ever to surpass all broadcast networks in total weekday prime-time viewers for an entire three-month period.”
The show at the top of the pack is Hannity, which averaged a massive 4.5 million nightly viewers in Quarter 3, according to Fox’s report.
The fact that Sean Hannity is pulling in 4.5 million viewers a night is beyond impressive — especially when you consider that Thursday Night Football only pulled in 5.43 million viewers when the Dolphins played the Jaguars in Week 3, as Yahoo Sports reported.
The big numbers did not stop with Hannity, either. According to Fox, Tucker Carlson’s Tucker Carlson Tonight pulled in an average of 4.4 million viewers per night in the third quarter of 2020.
Laura Ingraham, meanwhile, is now officially the most-watched woman in cable news, averaging 3.4 million viewers a night on The Ingraham Angle, according to Fox.
Fox also bested “all prime-time shows on MSNBC and CNN” with The Five, despite the fact that it airs at 5 p.m. ET, as the network noted.
Leaving them in the dust
As a whole, Fox News averaged 3.5 million viewers between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., the most cherished time spots, during the third quarter.
The No. 2 network, MSNBC, only had 2.1 million viewers — more than 1 million behind Fox.
CNN has also continued to struggle, with its best show, Cuomo Prime Time, only managing to pull in an average of 1.7 million viewers during its prime-time slot, according to Fox. Perhaps Chris Cuomo, brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), isn’t the big star he seems to think he is.
Clearly, the American people have had enough of lying from him and others in the mainstream media — but these networks don’t seem to be getting the message.
Former Fox News host Shepard Smith is returning to cable news in October, and he has vowed not to interject his opinion into his new show on CNBC, The News with Shepard Smith. But considering his history on Fox, that’s something we’ll have to see to believe.
