The majority don't trust and believe the liberal news. Fox News broke records in February, averaging 3.53 million total viewers in prime time — the highest ratings in its 23-year history. It was also its 44th consecutive month that it was the most-watched channel on basic cable. The channel steamrolled its news competitors, with MSNBC averaging 1.78 million and CNN hitting 1.05 million.
Year over year, Fox News was up 35 percent in total viewers, with a 27 percent increase in the 25-54 demographic. MSNBC was down 9 percent in total viewers and 7 percent in advertiser-coveted young viewers. CNN was down 3 percent, and 6 percent in the key demo. Fox News’ primetime shows, Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham, all hit all-time records. “Tucker Carlson Tonight” averaged 4.115 million viewers, a 33 percent increase from the year before. “Hannity,” meanwhile had 4.3 million average total viewers.
With 3.6 million average viewers, Ingraham broke the ratings record for a female cable news host. The highest rated show of the month was President Trump’s State of the Union address, with 11.7 million viewers.
