  • CNN’s Ratings Take Another Dive, HLN Sinks Into Abyss

    While Fox News continues to dominate in the world of cable, CNN’s audience continues to shrink, reports TV Newser. In all of cable last week (not just cable news), Fox News was number one in primetime, averaging an incredible 2.513 million viewers. Fox News even humiliated second place MSNBC, which averaged just 1.78 million primetime viewers. But way, way, way down in 13th place, below even the Food Network, sits far-left CNN at number 13 and an average of just 914,000 viewers — which is about a third of Fox’s numbers. In total day viewers, Fox News is again number...

    White House Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway delivered a surprise announcement on Friday morning’s “Fox & Friends,” saying that President Donald Trump would like to make his wide-ranging Thursday interview a monthly occurrence. .. Kellyanne: “The president had a great time bringing his case directly to the American people as he does on social media and these bilateral Q & As, certainly at the South Lawn, the press pool sprays, and with other interviews.” But then Conway dropped the other shoe. “And the president has said that he would like to perhaps come once a month and as news breaks, but...

    Sponsors who left Fox News star Laura Ingraham’s show at the behest of teen gun control activist David Hogg are missing out on a 20 percent increase in eyeballs. The conservative author of “Shut up and Sing” lost nearly 30 advertisers since a boycott against her show launched March 29, but those who held firm are benefiting from a ratings windfall. Data compiled by the media watchdog News Busters shows a jump from 2.23 million viewers prior to Mr. Hogg’s campaign to 2.7 million since her return from a vacation.

    Sara Carter, who in recent months has emerged as one of the country’s finest investigative journalists, is joining Fox News. The official announcement came on Christmas Eve at 9 A.M.

High profile Fox News contributors are usually paid six figures a year to appear with regularity on the channel to discuss news developments in the context of their areas of expertise. A video of Carter’s appearance on the Dec. 24 Fox News morning program...

    American Thinker.com ^ | November 14, 2017 | Peter Barry Chowka
    An avalanche of mass defections of advertisers from Sean Hannity’s Fox News program appears to have been staunched – at least for the present. Over the weekend, initially five, and then more, major sponsors were about to bolt. On Monday, the CEO of the company in the forefront of the defections, Keurig, apologized for his company’s threat to quit running its commercials on Hannity’s show. With that move, the tide against Hannity appeared to be turning. At least that is how Hannity positioned the news. Monday was a day of fast-breaking developments, with Hannity’s fans, social media, and Hannity’s four...

    Fox News reporter John Roberts roasted Trump spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday over the White House’s refusal to allow television coverage of its daily press briefings. When Roberts, the network’s chief White House correspondent, got up to leave the briefing early, Sanders noticed and joked, "John Roberts is bored today, he's stepping out." “If it was on camera, I might not be,” Roberts shot back. He also tweeted about the incident, noting he had an on-camera appearance he needed to be at, adding, "Had the brief been on camera, it would have been on TV, not me." The restrictions...

    Last week, more Americans tuned in to watch re-runs of “Yogi Bear,” “Full House,” and “Friends” on Nick At Nite than to watch Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon’s shows on CNN. According to cable ratings from the week of June 26-July 2, CNN’s viewership of its primetime shows was ranked significantly lower than its competitors like Fox News and MSNBC, which place first and second respectively. Clocking in at No. 10 on the list, CNN fell behind HGTV, Nick At Nite, History Channel, and ESPN — the sports network that’s been hemorrhaging viewers for months. CNN’s ratings nosedive corresponds with...

    Fox News host Neil Cavuto tore into President Donald Trump on Tuesday night for Trump's continued social-media outbursts that targeted the news media and members of his own administration in recent days. "Mr. President, it's not the 'fake-news media' that's your problem," Cavuto said. "It's you. It's not just your tweeting — it's your scapegoating. It's your refusal to see that sometimes you're the one who's feeding your own beast — and acting beastly with your own guys." *** "I find it ironic that on this, the 73rd anniversary of D-Day, some of your most ardent backers are desperately girding...

    The media were at DEFCON three Thursday following a lengthy and heated press conference with President Donald Trump where he went toe-to-toe with the biased press. Trump’s tongue lashing of the media had Fox News’ Shepard Smith frothing at the mouth with anger as he accused the President with a dubious smear during his show. “Your opposition was hacked and the Russians were responsible for it and your people were on the phone with Russia the same day it was happening and we're fools asking the questions,” he shouted with claims no report had ever made. “No, sir, we're not...

    Shepard Smith, the Fox News anchor, on Thursday afternoon seemed to have had enough of Donald Trump’s slams at the media as peddlers of “fake news” — or, when it comes to CNN, “very fake news.” “It is crazy what we are watching every day, it is absolutely crazy,” Smith said. “He keeps repeating ridiculous throwaway lines that are not true at all and sort of avoiding this issue of Russia as if we are some kind of fools for asking the question.” Smith then started to look into the camera and added, “Really? Your opposition was hacked, and the...

    Fox’s Shep Smith went off on President Trump and the White House this afternoon for claiming that a lot of terrorist attacks have gone underreported by the media. Smith walked through a number of the attacks the White House put on its list, explained in detail how he himself, and Fox News in general, devoted tons of coverage to many of those attacks, and was rather unsparing in his response to the administration: The president’s assertion is false. The White House knows that it was false or could have known that it was false with a quick Google

    We all know by now that Megyn Kelly opted to sign a comprehensive deal with NBC. It is also clear that competitor ABC News had been one of the top suitors. She even turned down a handsome $100 million package from Fox News to go to the peacock network for far less money. But, could Kelly’s recent appearance on Good Morning America have stopped that network from competing harder for the Fox News host? Mediaite has learned that the minute-by-minute ratings for GMA took a major (and surprising) dive during her segment on November 15 to promote her new book,...
