Hit Fox News show “The Five” is continuing its domination of cable ratings, coming in as the most-watched show yet again, according to Adweek.
“The Five” had the most total viewers and also enjoyed the second most viewers in the coveted 25-54 demographic.
Tucker Carlson had another great week, coming in second for total viewers but first in the key 25-54 demo.
Meanwhile, CNN saw its ratings fall off a cliff with just 504,000 total viewers in primetime, down 41% from the previous week.
CNN’s 25-54 demographic numbers were also down by 47% from the week before.
According to Adweek: “Fox News’ The Five was the most-watched show of the week (3.08 million at 5 p.m.) and the second-most-watched among adults 25-54 (433,000) at 8 p.m.
“Tucker Carlson Tonight came in second in total viewers (3.05 million at 8 p.m.) and No. 1 among adults 25-54 (483,000).
“Hannity took No. 3 in total viewers (2.62 million at 9 p.m.) followed by Jesse Watters Primetime at No. 4 (2.54 million at 7 p.m.) and Special Report with Bret Baier at No. 5 (2.245 million viewers at 6 p.m.). Fox News as a network secured the top 18 cable news telecasts for the week among adults 25-54.
“How about the broader basic cable landscape? After Fox News and MSNBC, there was HGTV, Hallmark, Discovery, INSP, TLC, Food Network, History, and USA rounding out the top ten most-watched basic cable networks in primetime.
“Fox News, MSNBC, HGTV, and Hallmark were also the four most-watched basic cable networks in total day last week, followed by CNN, INSP, Food Network, USA, TV Land and ID.”
MSNBC came in second place behind Fox News but CNN’s ratings are still in freefall.
The plummeting ratings come rumors are swirling of a major shakeup at the network.
As Slay News previously reported, CNN suffered its worst day in 22 years for the key 25-54 demographic.
In May, “The Five” was the most-watched show on cable news in both total audiences and among the key 25-54 age demographic.
According to Adweek, Tucker took the top two prizes last week:
“On the cable news programming front, Tucker Carlson Tonight was the most-watched show of the week, both in total viewers (3.225 million) and among adults 25-54 (533,000) at 8 p.m.
