Fox News Remains Number Three Network On All Of Cable In August

Fox News, like the rest of cable news, has seen year-to-year ratings declines this summer, and August was no exception.

But when compared to the rest of cable, FNC remains the #3 network in total viewers (prime time). Here’s more details from the month.

• Fox News was the #3 network on all of cable, while MSNBC was 29th, CNN 34th and HLN 37th.

• FNC’s prime time programs topped CNN, MSNBC and HLN combined in total viewers. During every hour, FNC beat CNN and MSNBC combined.

• Fox News had the top 11 programs in total viewers and the top eight programs in the demo during August.

Red Eye, FNC’s 3amET show, had better ratings in the demo than CNN’s 8pmET Rick’s List.

• Still, like many programs on cable news, FNC saw declines. The O’Reilly Factor was down 20% in total viewers and 26% in the demo, Hannity was down 20% in total viewers and 24% in demo and On The Record declined 17% in total viewers and 24% in demo. That was comparable with MSNBC’s decline in the demo – CNN was down more year-to-year.
