Fox News Channel attracted more prime-time viewers than   CNN   and   MSNBC   combined last week, adding to its streak as the most-watched basic cable network.

Fox News averaged 2.3 million viewers during the hours of 8-11 p.m. ET from June 10-16, while MSNBC finished second with an average of 1.5 million. HGTV, A&E and USA joined them among the top five, while CNN averaged just 744,000 to finish 14th.

Discovery, TNT, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, TBS, Hallmark and the History Channel also finished with more prime-time viewers than the struggling CNN.

Fox News averaged 315,000 prime-time viewers among the key demographic of adults ages 25-54, compared to 192,000 for MSNBC and 173,000 for CNN. While MSNBC topped liberal rival CNN, the home of Rachel Maddow still finished with its lowest-rated week of 2019 in both total day and prime-time viewership in the key demo.

In addition, “Fox & Friends” beat liberal morning shows “Morning Joe” and “New Day” combined in the demo.

“Hannity” had the most-watched telecast in all of cable on June 10 with an average of 3.2 million viewers. “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle,” “The Five” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” were among the 19 Fox News programs that finished among the Top 25 telecasts for the week.

FNC also took the crown among total day viewers, averaging 1.2 million, while no other basic cable networks cracked the million-viewer mark. MSNBC came in second, averaging 850,000; CNN attracted 519,000 total day viewers.

I think this has much to do with the number of liberal Fox experts watching daily!

It's no secret that there is a far lager young and millennial demographic among Democrats than among Republicans which cater more to old traditional concerns.

"The decline in traditional TV viewership across all demographic groups is well established at this point and more marked among tech-savvy millennials who are quick to adopt the latest devices and services and are less enamored of “appointment viewing” than their older peers."

"The company reports that while 72% of baby boomer/traditionalists watched traditional linear TV at its time of broadcast , only 42% of millennials and younger audiences did the same ."

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to put two and two together and figure out why FOX might be doing better with "baby boomer/traditionalists" than with the new large number of millennial voters who have a completely different method of accessing their news and information.

When you look at the "Top News Websites" it's a very different story than Fox wants to admit.

  2. CNN digital network
  3. MSNBC digital network
  4. AOL News
  6. Fox digital network
  7. ABC digital network
  8. Huffington Post
  9. Google News

That's right, Fox wouldn't even get a bronze medal in this contest coming in 6th.

"If you're a business owner or manager, look for ways to get more eyes on your product, service and brand. The more you can test and adapt, the better success you'll have as technology changes. Ultimately, being more prepared for faster and faster change is necessary for entrepreneurs and managers. If you're not learning, you're losing ."
