‘The Five’ Continues to Make Ratings History, Finishes November as No. 1 Show for 8th Consecutive Month

Fox News’s hit show “The Five” has continued to make ratings history after finishing November as the number one show in all of cable news for the eighth consecutive month.

“The Five” has finished first in cable news for 11 out of the last 12 months.

The program averaged 3.7 million viewers, 466,000 in the 25-54 age demographic and 285,000 in the 18-49 demo.

It has also been outpacing every show on CNN and MSNBC, across the board.

What is remarkable about the show’s winning streak is that “The Five” is broadcast during the day, not in primetime.

No other non-primetime show has been able to do what “The Five” has achieved.

Fox News dominated rivals MSNBC and CNN combined in day viewers and primetime viewers for the fourth straight month.

The network had 93 of the top 100 cable news shows for the month and had the top 14 programs in cable news with viewers and the top 15 cable news programs in the 25-54 demo.

Fox News was the most-watched network across the political spectrum with more Independents and Democrats watching Fox News than MSNBC and CNN in total day and primetime viewers in the 25-54 age demo.

Fox News was also the number one cable news network among Hispanic and Asian households across the total for day and primetime viewers.

FOX & Friends finished November with 1.5 million viewers crushing the newly launched CNN The Morning and MSNBC’s Morning Joe combined in viewers and the key demo.

The hit show beat every offering on CNN in total viewers and in the 25-54 demo.

Greg Gutfeld’s show delivered its highest-rated month since launch in viewers and A25-54, topping all of late-night television across the board in viewers with 2,322,000 viewers.
