    Despite year of upheaval, FOX News ends the year on top

    FOX News faced a year of upheaval. Its talent departures and schedule changes are virtually unprecedented for a cable news network, yet it is ending the year in the lead, both in overall viewers and among those ages 25 to 54, the demographic coveted most by news show advertisers, over competitors MSNBC and CNN, according to Nielsen ratings.

    In the past 12 months, Fox News has seen two of its top prime-time hosts, Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly, leave the network. Kelly left in January for NBC News, where she is now hosting the third hour of the “Today” show, titled “Megyn Kelly Today.” O’Reilly was ousted after a New York Times report revealed that he had settled multiple sexual harassment lawsuits, and advertisers fled his program.

    The revolving schedules are hard to keep up with, but they show the power of Fox News and its loyal viewership. And these changes, largely due to hosts being ousted amid sexual misconduct allegations, has not diminished the network’s ratings, which appear to be immune from the scourge of scandal. In overall viewers in the year to date, Fox News bested MSNBC by 39 percentage points, and CNN by 78 percentage points. With respect to the overall 25-54 demographic, CNN and MSNBC were tied at 370,000 viewers, and Fox News surpassed them by 27 percentage points, with 488,000 viewers.

    I'm pretty sure that the people who don't watch cable news at all greatly outnumber the Fox News viewers. Still, their audience is certainly loyal.

    Havent seen statistics, but I would assume all news channels would be seeing declines in viewership as there are many other venues for getting the news. I just dont see college kids sitting down and watching cable news. Many have "cut the cord" and dont even have cable.

    Anyone who has watched a few minutes of CNN or MSNBC can understand why Fox is still number one.

    So I doubt it has much to do with Fox News in particular. It probably has a lot more to do with just how awful their competition is.

    No, it's the Trump loyal base who watches Faux News. They have literally turned in the Trump Propaganda Network - especially when it comes to the Muller investigation.


    2017 cable news ratings broke records again and again, and the year end numbers are no slouch either.

    For the period beginning Dec. 26, 2016 and ending Dec. 10, 2017, Fox News was on top in both primetime and total day viewership, but MSNBC posted the biggest percentage gains in the key measures. CNN also posted its highest ratings on record in total day in the demo and total viewers for the year. In primtime, CNN had its second most watched year since 2008, also in both measures.

    In primetime, Fox News was number one with an average of 2.42 million viewers with 488,000 of those falling in the key adults 25-54 demographic. That is approximately even with the network’s performance in both measures last year. MSNBC was second with 1.62 million viewers and 370,000 in the demo, an impressive increase of 50 percent in total viewers and 37 percent in the demo. CNN was third in total viewers with 1.06 million and tied MSNBC in the demo with 370,000, down 15 percent in total viewers and 13 percent in the demo.

    Nah, it's CNN and MSNBC who have literally turned into the Anti-Trump propaganda stations.

    So fixed that for you.
