Fox News beats CNN, MSNBC combined in ratings, tops all of cable


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.

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.

Fox News has now finished first in the total day category for 23 straight weeks.

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.

  1. Congrats to FOX, support Staff and On Air People .

    This news should be of no surprise to any one .

    In fact I believe both CNN and MSNBC will suffer even greater losses once the IG and AG Teports on the Steele Dossier and the ensuing investigation and hearings commence and becomes public .

  2. This very good and compulsory step for any media channel therefore CNN have to more improvements to gain audience.
    Scoreboard: Monday, June 24 :
    Fox News completed positioned No. 1 on Monday, driven by Hannity and Tucker Carlson. MSNBC completed in front of CNN, in both all out watchers and A25-54 during prime time and absolute day.
