How is Fox News doing in the ratings now? It has been years since I watched it - I think way back when I had Sky. Apparently MSNBC are not far behind them in ratings.


MSNBC Brian Williams 11th Hour has beaten the Fox News rival, as has Rachel Maddow who has beaten the slime ball Sean Hannity I believe.

And before anyone starts - Yes, that is my opinion on Sean Hannity.


The latest figures for Wednesday Night show Fox News peaking at almost 3.5 million viewers, MSNBC peaking at just over 2.5 million, and CNN way off the pace with a peak of over 1.2 million. MSNBC win the 4pm and 11pm hours, with Fox News winning every hour in between.

Isn't the key demos important too with US news channels, the 18-49 group. That is where the money is made from advertisers, and I think that is where MSNBC is successful, as Fox News ageing audience continues to get older, whilst MSNBC attract the younger and more valuable audience share.


It's actually 25-54 that's often refered to as "the money demo", but in that demo, Fox peaked at 577,000 viewers on Wednesday night. MSNBC came in second with a peak of 421,000, and CNN peaked at 321,000. In the demo, Fox News won every hour.

You can find the daily scoreboard for the demo and total viewers at TV Newser.

I've just noticed Sky credited 5 News on the L3s while reporting on 5's FOI request for knife crime stats. Is this normal practice, as I don't remember this happening with any other broadcaster in the past?

It happens all the time over on this side of the Atlantic. They even use the channel or news outlet logo. It's most common when it comes to political polling or reporting being discussed (particularly on the cable channels).
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

My guess is Andrew Marr’s programme will still trounce Sophy Ridge’s programme in the ratings. Sky should have moved her programme later not earlier.

Marr historically has rated similarly to Breakfast Mon-Fri in that slot (c.1.5-1.8m) I think. I don't think Sky News ever comes even close to that in ratings terms, and instead is in the low 100ks, if not lower?

Looking at last Sunday Ridge got 130k, with no Marr as competition,
