Fox News TAKE OVER Youth – Ratings Show What Happened…

(PresidentialInsider.com)- Fox News continues to dominate the young demographic on cable news in August with 15 of the top 20 shows, according to Mediaite. From last August, Fox News, MSNBC and CNN all saw a drop in the younger demographic at the time of President Biden’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan.

All three networks were reportedly down 20%, noticeably during prime time hours. MSNBC appears to be doing well in demographic viewership. CNN’s total day demo viewership dropped 21% year over year for the month, while Fox news was down 12% and MSNBC was down 9%.

MSNBC’s total day viewership was up 10%, while Fox was up 4% and CNN down 10%. During prime time, MSNBC was up 5%, Fox News down 6%, and CNN down 11%. Overall, however, Fox News reportedly outpaced its competitors with its shows maintaining the top spots.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight landed in first place for the month of August averaging 486,000 demo viewers, followed by The Five’s 427,000 demo viewers. Hannity rounded out the top three with 397,000 demo viewers, while Gutfeld! and The Ingraham Angle tied for fourth with 358,000 demo viewers,” the outlet reported.

Gutfield! also recently topped its competitor, CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. But Gutfield is not considered a traditional late-night talk show as it airs 30 miniutes earlier than Colbert on the East Coast and at 10 p.m. central time and at 8 p.m. on the West Coast as the show airs live.

Jesse Watters and Bret Baier came in sixth and seventh, respectively.

Fox News takes the cake in virtually every category compared to the other networks. With total day viewers, Fox News averages 1.49 million, MSNBC averages 804,000, and CNN averages 561,000.

With the 25-54 demographic, Fox News comes in first again at 211,000. CNN takes second at 110,000 and MSNBC third with 89,000. During prime time, Fox News has an average of 2.34 million total viewers and an average of 311,000 in the young demographic. MSNBC has 1.30 million total viewers with 134,000 in the young demo. CNN has 733,000 total viewers with 153,000 in the young demo.

CNN needs to do a better job, don’t you think?
