Fox News Nielson Ratings TRUMPS CNN, MSNBC, with Hannity as #1 Top-Rated Cable News Program
Well now isn’t that something. I guess people are more interested in a second opinion than more people actually thought they did. Popular common belief has dwindled since Trump’s election, with new information available to them to question everything that challenges the status quo and group-think flying out the window as America becomes more adept to critical thinking once again.
And President Trump calls it like he sees it because he knows ratings matter. It turns out he was right. Fox News is dominating CNN and MSNBC on Nielsen ratings and Sean Hannity has the #1 show on cable news.
Fox News reports they “dominated February ratings, finishing the month as the most-watched network with “Hannity” as top-rated cable news program, according to Nielsen Media Research.
FNC picked up the total-day crown for the 32nd straight month, averaging 1.5 million viewers compared to 1.1 million for second-place MSNBC. Nickelodeon, HGTV and ID Discovery rounded out the top five; CNN averaged 707,000 viewers to place sixth.
Fox News also topped cable news in the key demographic of adults ages 24-54, averaging 261,000 viewers compared to 197,000 for CNN and 184,000 for MSNBC.
“Hannity” led the charge during prime-time hours, 8-11 p.m. ET, while Fox News averaged 2.6 million viewers to finish ahead of all basic-cable competitors. MSNBC, HGTV, TNT and ESPN joined FNC among the top five networks, while CNN finished tenth.
Sean Hannity’s program averaged 3.2 million viewers, followed by Tucker Carlson’s 3.1 million and MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” which finished slightly behind “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” FNC’s “The Five” and “The Ingraham Angle” join Hannity, Carlson and Maddow among the top five, while “Special Report with Bret Baier” finished sixth.”
