Fox, CNN Ratings in Freefall

Wednesday, 03 Apr 2013 11:52 AM

By Melanie Batley

Every cable news network saw its ratings drop from 2012 levels, following a banner year for political coverage.

Fox and CNN took the biggest hits, falling 33 percent and 28 percent, respectively, The Huffington Post reported.

However, Fox News continued to dominate the leaderboard in the first quarter of 2013, marking 45 consecutive quarters, more than 11 years, as the highest-rated cable news network.

And despite declines among younger viewers, Fox News grew in total viewers in late afternoon programming.

MSNBC dropped by only 4 percent, and continued to trump CNN in total viewers, however CNN made significant gains in the 8 p.m. hour, increasing its total viewers by 17 percent.
