This past year has been a roller-coaster for Fox News. If you have read TVNewser at all this year, you’d know why. However, throughout all of the controversies, FOXviewership was never negatively impacted.
It was never a secret that Fox is the most trusted name in cable news.
Obviously, they’re doing something right.
Why do they dominate the ratings every night, every week, every month, and every year? The answer is simple, they tell the truth. You can only cry wolf so many times before no one starts to believe a word you say…and that is exactly what the liberal media has done. This is why they’re network is in the news graveyard.
Recently the 2016 numbers came out, as it turns out Fox dominated even more than we expected.
From Ad Week:
The ratings for 2016 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):
Primetime (Mon-Sun): 2,429,000 Total Viewers / 481,000 A25-54
Total Day (Mon-Sun): 1,395,000 Total Viewers / 280,000 A25-54
Fox News will also close out 2016 as the 5th most-watched network in prime time in all of TV– only behind the big four broadcast nets: NBC, CBS, ABC, and FOX.
Averaging 2.4 million total prime-time viewers and 1.4 million total day viewers, FNC earned another milestone with its highest viewership ever in total day for a full year. The 483,000 prime time demo viewer average is the network’s best since 2010. Additionally, Fox News remained the No. 1 cable news channel in every relevant measurement.
Through December 25, 2016, FNC is up +36 percent in total viewers and up +42 percent in the key A25-54 demo compared with the network’s 2015 prime time performance. The network also delivered year-over-year growth in total day, up +29 percent in total viewers and up +36 percent in the A25-54 demo.
Bill O’Reilly marked 15 consecutive years as the No. 1 show in cable news among total viewers. Through December 13, The Factor is up +18 percent in total viewers and up +19 percent in A25-54 versus 2015.
CNN was a total disaster.
MSNBC…they were just unwatchable.
It appears as if no one will come close to touching Fox new’s ratings for a long, long time.
