Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News Media President & Executive Editor Jay Wallace trumped the achievement on Tuesday: “For 18 years, more viewers have turned to Fox News Channel for its unrivaled news and opinion coverage than any other cable news network and we are proud of our strong team both on and off the air as we offer our audience the most dynamic programming in the country.”
There has been a ratings boom for Fox News — along with all the cable news channels — during the Senate’s impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.
In primetime Friday night, from 8 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET, Fox News led the way with 3.846 million total average viewers and 584,000 in the demo. Next was MSNBC with 2.788 million total average viewers. Of them, 467,000 were in the demo. CNN saw 1.314 million total viewers and 296,000 in the demo.
