Fox News Channel dominates cable news every hour of the day from 6:00am to midnight, according to TV Newser:
How’s this for cable news domination – Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC combined in every hour from 6amET to MidnightET in both Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo for April 2009.
FNC had the top 11 cable news programs in Total Viewers and 12 of the top 15 in the demo. FNC is the #2 network in Total Viewers on all of cable.
From 9amET on, every program grew by more than 60% in the demo. The 5pmET hour, now occupied by Glenn Beck, is up 212% in the demo and up 128% in Total Viewers. Your World with Neil Cavuto is up 102% in the demo and up 60% in Total Viewers. On the Record with Greta Van Susteren is up 75% in demo and up 55% in Total Viewers. Also in demo: FOX Report is up 75%, Special Report 70%, The O’Reilly Factor 74% and Hannity 64%.
Wow. The American people have a lot to say about CNN’s and MSNBC’s liberal slant and they’re saying it loud and clear with their remote controls. I’m curious how much Fox News’ ratings were affected as a result of their positive coverage of the Tea Parties and how much CNN’ and MSNBC’s ratings were affected by their condescending and hostile coverage.
