Fox News Channel remains the most-watched cable network throughout the day according to Nielsen Media Research, marking 41 consecutive weeks as top dog in the entire cable realm. In the primetime realm, Fox News also aired a dozen of 12 of the top 30 telecasts on cable, in total viewers, with Hannity, Tucker Carlson Tonight, The Ingraham Angle and The Five leading the way in the ratings blitz.
As it has for over 16 years, Fox News remained the leading cable news network — garnering 2.6 million viewers compared to 1.4 million for MSNBC and 850,000 for CNN. This marks the third week in a row that Fox News has emerged as a ratings dynamo, garnering more viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined.
Fox Business Network is having a good week as well, according to Nielsen.
The debut of Trish Regan Primetime contributed to the network’s highest rated week for her 8 p.m. airtime in history according to Nielsen. Once again, Fox Business bested CNBC in total viewers throughout the day with a 16 percent ratings advantage over their rival.
