In 2019, Fox News Achieved Highest Primetime Ratings Ever

Boycotts Schmoycotts!

The primetime shows on Fox News faced so many boycotts in 2019, but the network hit its highest primetime ratings since its inception over 20 years ago.

From Fox News:

FFNC also finished 2019 as the most-watched basic cable network for the fourth consecutive year, averaging 1.4 million viewers. No other network cracked the one-million total day viewer plateau.

FNC averaged 2.5 million viewers between 8-11 p.m, and “Hannity” averaged 3.3 million viewers.

“Once again, Fox News Channel’s team of leading journalists and opinion hosts have led the network to a record-breaking ratings year as the number one network in all of cable for the fourth consecutive year,” Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and President & Executive Editor Jay Wallace said in a statement.

Hannity grabbed the most viewers in the 25-54 demographic with 528,000 viewers.

Tucker Carlson, the host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, took the brunt of the boycotts. Despite that, he achieved three million viewers in 2019, including 509,000 in the coveted 25-54 demographic.

His show was the second most-viewed primetime show:

“FNC continues to exert its dominance in cable television as the country experiences what may be one of the most fervent news cycles in history and we are proud to provide our audience with news and opinion they can trust across a variety of programming,” Scott and Wallace continued.

MSNBC finished second in total day viewers with 990,000. ESPN, Nickelodeon, and HGTV fell in the next open slots.

In primetime viewing, ESPN came in second with 1.8 million viewers. MSNBC, HGTV, and TBS followed it.

Fox nailed it in the morning lineup. An average of 1.5 million viewers tuned in to Fox & Friends. MSNBC’s Morning Joe had 1.1 million viewers. CNN’s New Day only averaged 507,000.

Kinda like Chick Fil-A; the more they boycott the stronger it gets…Or is it simply due to a higher quality of product?

It should be noted that Fox primetime is not where their problem is.

    I don’t do cable but know not to watch the local Fox affiliate news.

    Their “locos” news productions are full on Leftist Kooks!

    How much Money has George Sorass used to “bribe” them?

    True. They’ve stacked their “panels” with nevertrumpers throughout the day, have one of the most liberal anchors (Chris Wallace), have a nevertrumper judge who if he’s ever correct hell will freeze over, and 14-hour-a-day breaking news report of the same story hashed over time and again all day long. DNC talking point-readers who are never corrected, etc. I could go on and on about all the things that makes them sound less moderate than MSDNC throughout the day.

I’m going to go with higher quality product. I like to see at least an attempt at objectivity. One of the worst decisions ever made by a news organization was at the New York Times, when they deliberately decided to go for the narrative in lieu of clean reporting.

Fox News is about as Lefty Liar as MSNBC these days. Maybe the boycott worked?

Someone has to benefit from lefty media constantly soiling themselves on the air. I simply don’t watch any of them, they are all endlessly repetitive, just hot air,

If we are going to talk about news quality, the Daily Caller has a bone to pick with a whole bunch of liars.

For me, Adam Schiff and James Clapper head the list, because those monstrous liars were the source of much of the misinformation.
