    Finally had to check the ratings myself as I guess networks are banned from reporting these numbers. The stunning part is how few people watch any of these. Never miss. Ever miss. Tucker. The Five. Gutfeld. And whatever channel President Donald J. Trump is on! 😂👍🇺🇸

    I was so happy to see that Morning Joe with that hate filled Mika Brezinski and her possible murdering husband is almost dead last in the ratings. Good job Mika & Joe great hating.

      Couldn't agree with you more, they truly are despicable, and the funny thing is they both are equally despicable!

    Nice to see the NBA and NFL channels crashing....
    This anti American prevailing attitudes from both of these " American Pastimes"
    Along with the constant social justice message from the leagues have ruined the circus.
    No thanks from a die hard fan of almost 60 viewing years.

      A little Sarcasm;

      The false virtue signaling coming
      from the billionaire de facto Plantation Crackers running the NBA and NFL has gone way over the top. They are desperate to placate racist , narcissist , morons like LeBron James and his ilk . People whose self self righteous victimhood narratives are only rivaled by their almost none existent self awareness.

      The Crackers have SARCASTICALLY turned the games into a thinly veiled satirical circus of false virtue signaling. Former fans see through this and the drop in viewership shows just what a turnoff this all is .

      Token “give back” programs touted
      by the players and the crackers are so small as to be meaningless . These are seen as the public relations jokes that they are. Players earn tens of millions while owners and media exploit hundreds of millions. In relation to these revenues, the window dressing , PR programs amount to a drop in the bucket.

      While those give back PR commercials are running , everyone else is counting their money.

    Today I learned that people actually watch The Game Show Network.

    Newsmax is 52 on the list. Their shows are on the top 50 programs list though.
    Stitchfield, Greg Kelly and others.
    Chris Wallace is one of the biggest POS on TV

      Even more impressive when you realize that Newsmax is not even carried by all cable providers. A true apples to apples comparison would have them far higher

    Fox has the best news organization in the business and the ratings bare it out, everyone that oppose that are only looking bad when saying otherwise or extreme Left wing.

    The Fact that Fox continues to lead in the ratings and will continue to is due to the fact that people are fed up with the lies being told by the left consistently and I know everything isn't perfect in this world and the right wing side isn't either but when you really put the two beside each other and watch for an extended period of time it becomes obvious that FOX tells the truth more than the other networks period!

      Fox is playing and Trying to find a Sweet spot! That’s why the musical chairs!
      Fox was ready to make a left turn until they saw so many leave, now they are fishing to see what works. Even Hannity it’s the s getting stale ams Ingham likes
      To hear herself talk and drowns out the guests! Seems fox may have a morale problem as well. Want to see Newsmax succeed! I was with Fox from the first day they went out n the air! I don’t see any core values at Fox any more!

    Wow .... of the top 8 shows all but Rachel Mad Cow are on Fox! You have to think people watching Mad Cow have some sort of major malfunction happening :)

    I think Fox has made some programming and talent changes to try and get some of its old audience back. Harold Ford Jr. is a solid addition to the Five and as the token lefty he holds his own while injecting a more cordial and relevant tone to discussions. He is much more human than Juan Williams or Donna Brazille and more likable ......

    The two personalities that need to go are Cavuto and Wallace. I can't stand to listen to never Trumper Cavuto croak his way through another show and he is boring as hell ....

    Wallace is a left wing hack who lost all his credibility in the first debate between Slow Old Joe and President Trump .....

    Tucker Carlson is king of the airwaves!!!!

      Fox News is screwed. It has nothing but mentally ill Trump cult members who watch. Nothing but conspiracy theories.

    Fox News has 12 of the top 15 programs as measured by number of viewers. That statistic can not be spun into anything positive by any of the other networks. If the opposite was true - the left-wing propaganda outlets of cnn and msnbc would be mentioning that continuously. They can not, because it is obvious that the majority of people seeking news choose Fox. The cnn and msnbc hosts and guests are revealed every day for who they are and who they are not. Several are absolute garbage; most are absolute liars..... again, Fox News programs - 12 of the top 15 - generate more viewers than the left wing outlets combined. Regardless of how that is attempted to be spun, Fox wins. cnn and msnbc lose. Regardless of what the left wing nuts say.

    Why isn't one american news in your ratings? I heard their number one in ratings now. I feel they are more transparent than the other news stations. They love America. And they realize that if everybody wants to come here the way it's been run has got some good things going for it.

      Since when are ratings reliable? OAN is by far the fastest growing news station and should have been recognized. Newsmax is also gaining popularity.

    Everyone is going to news sites on their computer. libs can't be trusted and everyone of their copy the others lies. So when one is caught they all are caught. The Fox turned their back and started believing the lies and they even started reporting them. So people left them also. I get most of my news on line. Rumble, Bitchute, Newsmax and OANN. "Lie to me once, shame on you; lie to me twice, shame on me". I will never trust any of them again.
