Fox News Breaks Records on Cable News

By Jim Meyers   |   Wednesday, 01 Jul 2009 10:38 AM

The Fox News Channel is having its best year ever and aired all 10 of the top-rated cable news shows in the second quarter of 2009.

"Since Obama came into office, Fox has continued not only winning, but doing so at unprecedented levels," Michael Calderone noted on Politico.

Fox showed a 33 percent rise in total viewers last quarter compared to the second quarter of 2008, and a 54 percent increase in younger viewers for its primetime weekday shows.

The biggest gainer on Fox was Glenn Beck.

"Beck, who takes aim at the administration repeatedly, is proving an even bigger draw since coming over from HLN: His 5 p.m. slot is up 110 percent from last year," Calderone disclosed.

TVNewser reported the average daily viewership for the top 10 cable news shows, all of them on Fox:

  • 8 p.m. – "The O'Reilly Factor" — 3,188,000

  • 9 p.m. – "Hannity" — 2,341,000

  • 5 p.m. – "Glenn Beck" — 2,053,000

  • 10 p.m. – "On the Record" — 1,950,000

  • 6 p.m. – "Special Report" — 1,889,000

  • 7 p.m. – "Fox Report" — 1,757,000

  • 11 p.m. – "The O'Reilly Factor" — 1,579,000

  • 9 a.m. – "America's Newsroom" — 1,399,000

  • 4 p.m. – "Your World" — 1,389,000

  • 3 p.m. – "Studio B" — 1,169,000

    The cable news show on other networks that came closest to cracking the top 10 was MSNBC's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann," which had 1,159,000 nightly viewers during the second quarter.
