USA Deals Humiliating Blow to CNN and MSNBC, Gives Fox News 98 of Top 100 Shows in The First Quarter

Fox News dominated cable news in the first quarter of this year and delivered a humiliating blow to “rival” networks CNN and MSNBC.

With the help of the American public, Fox News landed 98 of the top 100 telecasts.

Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC combined with total day and primetime viewers and the 25-54 age demographic for the seventh consecutive quarter.

Fox News won every single weekday hour over with double and triple-digit percent advantages.

While the competition was losing viewers, Fox News’s audience share increased to over 52% across all key categories as more Democrats and Independents watch Fox than any other network.

During the first quarter of 2023, Fox News had the top 13 programs in cable news in total viewers and the top 15 programs in the younger 25-54 demo.

Fox was also the number one cable network during total day among Asian viewers and the top cable news network with Hispanic viewers across both primetime and total day.

“FOX & Friends” finished the quarter with 1.2 million viewers and 165,000 in the demo crushing “CNN This Morning” and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” combined across total viewers.

“The Faulkner Focus” had 1.6 million viewers and 205,000 in the 25-54 demo.

“Outnumbered” earned 1.7 million viewers and 208,000 in the demo.

“Outnumbered,” “The Faulkner Focus,” and “America’s Newsroom” beat ABC’s “GMA3” and CBS’s “The Talk” in total viewers.
