FOX News reports:
Fox News crushes CNN, MSNBC in 2022, finishes No. 1 among all of cable for 7th straight year
Fox News Channel has a lot to celebrate this holiday season.
Fox News will finish 2022 as the most-watched cable network in all of television for the seventh straight year, “The Five” made history as the first non-primetime program to ever lead cable news viewership for an entire year, and Laura Ingraham finished as the highest-rated female host.
Americans flocked to Fox News during a jam-packed year that saw Russia invade Ukraine, the death of Queen Elizabeth II, crucial midterm elections, widespread economic issues, the impact of the COVID pandemic, Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover, the raid of former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and other major news stories.
“From America’s choice on election night to the home of late night’s smash hit show, 2022 was a testament to our unmatched skill in delivering the most innovative news and opinion programming to our audience which continues to rank as the most politically diverse in cable news. I am beyond proud of our entire team’s incredible achievements this year,” FOX News Media CEO Suzanne Scott said.
Fox News averaged 1.5 million total day viewers, a 12% increase compared to 2021. Despite the news-heavy year, MSNBC averaged 733,000 viewers to shed 19% of its 2021 audience and CNN managed only 586,000 average viewers to lose 27% of last year’s viewership.
2022 marked the 21st consecutive year that Fox News finished as the most-watched cable news channel.
Congrats to everyone at FOX News!
