    Looks like Friday numbers. lol

    @Sara Bibel (or whoever runs this site)

    Did “The Five” replace “Hannity” at 9pm. Or, is that a typo? Thanks.

  • Aizen

    Cable news has almost become unbearable, regardless of what network you’re watching. And people wonder why America is so divided.

    @Kendall

    I think “The Five” is only airing until Hannity returns from hiatus, but I could be wrong.

  • Ben

    Hannity was on yesterday so I think it was just this day

  • Donof

    It was only on Wednesday. It was a replay of The Five from 4 hours earlier. Hannity was back on Thursday.

  • usa8888

    Fox continues to slide in its ratings and MSNBC is taking the lead in prime time. BillO continues to hold his lead by attracting an old age skewed audience, which doesn’t bode well for the future.

    Most of the Fox News hosts were away for Christmas. Even The Five had mostly guest hosts filling in. Fox & Friends has had guest hosts all week. O’Reilly wasn’t here, Greta wasn’t here, and Shepard Smith wasn’t here. Even after all if this, Fox is still in the lead.

  • NJCaliboi

    Over the last two weeks all the networks have seen their star anchors out for the holiday… I mean each network has seen them out one day this one the next day the other- so much so it’s pretty much a non factor….a “wash”
