FOX News Channel was the top-rated cable news channel last week, even during the DNC.  FNC placed third in primetime in all of cable with two million viewers – meanwhile, MSNBC placed fourth and CNN placed sixth for the week.

    Where’s the demos, not total viewers?

    Fourth place for MSNBC isnt very good considering they are the Democratic agenda machine.

    Wow Amanda, that was a great article…NOT!!! Where are the numbers? Why is this story so late when nobody is even talking about convention week anymore? Does Fox News pay you under the table? LOL

    @Wanda. In what way? MSNBC and CNN ratings are terrible most of the time, while FOX. Can beat some top 5 networks

  • Mark2

    All I remember was that MSNBC and CNN spanked Fox News during Primetime of the entire DNC week.Both CNN and MSNBC beat Fox News by millions of viewers per night.

    Very funny, USA. The Truth has come out! ;-)

    Mark2: A 24-hour cable news service is different from conventional television. Beating someone in primetime but losing to them for Total Day is NOT a win. I have no idea with DOCTOR(lol) Maddow had on last night, but it may have been a 9/11 preview show. If Fox kills in the daytime, then all 24 hours should be considered before you declare a “win.”

    For example, “The Five” airs, I would guess in most time zones” at 5pm. Three hours BEFORE primetime. And, The Five kicks more a$$ during the dinner hour than most of CNN and MSNBC’s primetime programs.

    To get into stats. I didn’t hear a word about 4 states, largely Republican dealing with a Hurricane during the entire RNC Convention. No power, no calble or phone service. Yet, FNC remains on top. It is truly amazing!
    I can only imagine what the numbers would have been if these largely red states would have been included!

  • Mr Gone

    Oh , just let the liberals have their three nights of good ratings. Then they can go back to explaining why MSNBC rating are so low the rest of the time

  • Chock

    People on MSNBC aren’t ‘television pretty’ or ‘pretty’ in general. There’s this one guy who continuely smirks while he reads his copy, even if it’s about people. What his name? Yeah, Racheal Maddow. Sargent Ed Shultz needs to stop yelling.

    Please. Inside voice, Ed.

    Please get your stories correct. president BO has NOT snubbed Natanyahu. They spoke on the phone today for over an hour. POTUS can not meet with Natanyahu when he comes to the UN due to his schedule which was understood.
    If you guys feel that POTUS is not doing his job, have Natanyahu meet with Romney and Ryan.

    What do you call “late”? The ‘week’ in cable weekly ratings runs from Monday through Sunday. Cable news ratings for Saturday and Sunday are normally published on Tuesdays (today); as well as the basic cable weekly ratings.
