CNN ratings chart: Fox News continues to lead the pack

Sadly, for networks like CNN that continue to focus on telling tales instead of providing worthy news, the outlook continues to worsen, and it appears that this trend is set to gain traction.

CNN keeps getting bogged down with bad news

In the first quarter of 2018, Fox News experienced a 17% decline in its prime-time viewership. However, “Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream” drew an average of 1.5 million viewers in April, according to Nielsen ratings. On the other hand, CNN’s most-watched show, “Anderson Cooper 360,” ranked 24th among cable programs, with an average audience of 1.1 million viewers. Moreover, several Fox News morning and daytime shows, such as “Fox & Friends,” “Outnumbered,” and “Daily Briefing with Dana Perino,” outperformed “AC360” in terms of viewership. Full Story

Not even one (zip) CNN shows made it to the top 20 in total viewership.  Hannity’s show was the top-rated program with a 3.3 million viewership and the most-watched among the 25-54-year-olds.


What happened to the rise of MSNBC?

Despite Rachel Maddow briefly claiming the title of the most-watched host in all of cable news in 2017, Fox News Channel has shown historical growth and once again dominated the cable news industry. The recently released ratings for the May period show Fox News winning in all categories.

Fox News Channel has maintained its position as the most-watched network in basic cable for 23 consecutive months, with an average total day audience of 1.4 million viewers in May.

Fox News dominated its competition in prime time, garnering an average total audience of 2.381 million viewers compared to MSNBC’s 1.384 million and CNN’s 835,000. Among the 25-54 age group, which is most desired by advertisers, FNC secured a clear win with 461,000 viewers, far surpassing MSNBC’s 329,000 and CNN’s 265,000.

In cable news, Fox News had 10 out of the top 15 shows, with Sean Hannity taking the top spot as the highest-rated host. In fact, aside from ESPN and the NBA Playoffs on TNT, Hannity surpassed every other show in basic cable, attracting an average total audience of 3.261 million.
