FOX News Extends its Dominance of Cable News

Oct 5, 2017

The latest numbers are in comparing the number of viewers of Fox News shows to the shows on CNN, MSNBC, and HLN and they staggering. Fox News shows are number one in all of the prime time slots from 4 p.m. eastern to 11 p.m. eastern. CNN runs a distant second with MSNBC third, and HLN’s ratings are almost nonexistence.

Shows like the Neil Cavuto show and The Five have numbers significantly higher that their competitors, but the biggest numbers come in the 9 p.m. time slot when Sean Hannity’s show has been moved to go head to head with the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC. Maddow’s show, which consists mostly of attacks on President Trump, had been heralded by the liberal media for being number one in its time slot. However, Hannity is beating her two to one in the number of viewers.
