Cable News Ratings Tuesday, September 21: The Five Continues Winning Streak

 

Fox News show The Five

On Tuesday, like Monday, the most-watched show on cable news wasn’t even in prime time.

It was The Five, Fox News’ 5 p.m. panel show, hosted this week by Dana Perino, Jesse Watters, Greg Gutfeld, Jeanine Pirro and Geraldo Rivera.

Typically a prime time titan like Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity or Rachel Maddow would take the top spot in cable news. But so far this week, The Five has dominated.

It drew 3.64 million viewers on Monday, an improvement on the monster Monday numbers.

Carlson, who has been placing first in cable news most of this year, came second again with 3.46 million viewers. Hannity, who fell behind Bret Baier on Monday, was back up to third place with 3.01 million viewers.

MSNBC’s Maddow, meanwhile, placed seventh in cable news.

Here is a full breakdown of Tuesday’s cable news ratings by show:
