Fox News blows away competition with The Five scoring FIVE TIMES as many viewers as it’s nearest competition

Fox News raked in huge victories when weekly ratings were announced on Tuesday with The Five scoring FIVE TIMES as many viewers as its closest competitor. 

According to a report in MediaiteThe Five took a stoning lead in the 5 p.m. Eastern Time slot over CNN’s The Lead, which held the second slot for that time period. 

The Five scored 3.17 million according to the publication, whereas CNN’s offering, hosted by Jake Tapper, only brought in 630,000 viewers overall during the five o’clock hour. 

“Overall, from 4 to 6 PM, Tapper continued to edge out MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace in the key 25-54 viewer demographic, 139,000 to 132,000. Both Your World with Neil Cavuto and The Five dominated overall, with (respectively) 244,000 and 461,000 in the demo,” Mediaite reported. 

Other ratings for daily totals from the top three networks on cable religions showed similar trends with Fox News topping the charts, particularly with the 25-54 category of viewers. 

Tuesday’s report says CNN with 527,000 total viewers and MSNBC with 899,000, but again, overall Fox News took home the gold with 1.82 million total viewers.

In the 25-54 age range specifically, the order was slightly different with MSNBC bringing in roughly 104,000 pairs of eyes while CNN had 132,000 viewers in the coveted demographic. Fox News again took the lead, bringing in 300,000 25-54-year-old viewers. 

While Fox News is performing particularly well, it has undoubtedly lost some viewers following the 2020 presidential election where conservatives faulted the network for its early call in some states. 

Fox, which has been a staple in many conservative households, was accused of selling out after they made early calls for President Joe Biden in States with polls still open.
