    Foxnews wins again!

  • Bob

    Yes Fox News won again, but the ratings have fallen a great deal.

  • Julie Brown

    It’s Spring…people were out and about…..probably doing their last minute income tax.

    Fox RULES..while CNN and MSNBC continue their spiraling fall along with their Messiah Obama.

  • Ralph Hahn

    MSNBC usually wins the 25-54 demo on Saturday and Sundays. Fox News still has a bigger audience and they simply wipe-out the competition during the work week when most people are more focused on world affairs.

    FNC needs to rethink its weekend lineup for programs to a younger audience.

  • Ratboy

    Hey there Ralphie Boy!!!!

    @ FNC needs to rethink its weekend lineup for programs to a younger audience.

    I dont think they care! With this line up they stay on top and dont have to spend anymore money to do it.

  • Snap Tie

    @Ralph: Fox could run weekend prison Doc’s? Let’s the young-ins see their family members on TV, or there future resident.. Oh wait, already tried without much success..

  • b

    MSNBC punts and it shows but CNN actually works their balls-off during the weekends and THEY JUST ABSOLUTELY SUCK !

  • HarryFromMA

    WHY does TVByTheNumbers combine CNN & HLN? That skewers the true numbers of each.
    If I added Fox News & Fox Business, I will get these results:

    CNN/HLN: 101.12 million HHs

    FNC/FB: 215.45 million HHs

    Fox comes out double numbers of CNN & HLN.
    Combining only CNN & HLN skewers it so Fox New Chnnel is not #1 in that category.
    Please seriously consider listing each channel/network SEPARATELY. The same for all.

  • Hillbilly

    @HarryFromMA

    They don’t combine CNN & HLN. Both CNN & HLN are available in 101.12 HHs.

    CNN 101.12 million HHs

    HLN: 101.12 million HHs

    CNBC: 98.62 million HHs

    FNC: 99.15 million HHs

    MSNBC: 95.72 million HHs

    Fox Business: 58.15 million HHs
