Great TV

02Feb10

For people who can’t understand why Fox News is number 1.

Fox News had its best January in the history of the network, and was the only cable news network to grow year-to-year.

FNC also had the top 13 programs on cable news in total viewers for the fifth month in a row, and the top 13 programs in the A25-54 demographic for the first time in more than five years.

• FNC grew in double digits in both total viewers and the A25-54 demographic from January 2009. In prime time, it was up 22% in total viewers and 51% in the demo. CNN was down 34% and 37% and MSNBC down 26% and 38%. In total day, FNC was up 16% and 28%. CNN was down 34% and 41% and MSNBC down 28% and 39%. Last January all networks performed while with the Inauguration coverage. This month, the big political event was Scott Brown’s victory in Massachusetts, which FNC dominated in the ratings.

Special Report with Bret Baier/Brit Hume was #1 for the 100th consecutive month.

Fox Report #1 for 100th consecutive month.

Sean Hannity had his best month ever (since it launched as Hannity).



One Response to “Great TV”

  1. Fox is appalling. But it’s SO funny. Hearing Glenn Beck tell America that the British NHS doesn’t treat people over 70, whilst my 85 year old grandma was in a British NHS hospital being treated, was just brilliant. I mean, if you’re going to lie, at least be clever about it. Beck just invented the lie then and there. I’m awaiting the day that he says “We have reason to believe that Senator John McCain is the 2nd coming of Christ!”
