    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.

    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.

    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.

    Cartoon networks views are on the declinr

    Actually, the only reason Fox is on top is there is only one right wing media (they dont have competition). If Newsmax or OAN picks up and provides Fox with competition, there viewership will split and Fox may not make it to top 3.

    The reason MSNBC, CNN, CBS are not at top because of the competition they provide. Overall, the left wing combined has more viewership than the right wing combined.

    I am a neutral and dont care about right or left wings as it really shouldn't matter. Politicians are gonna make money on both sides and people will fight stupidly over which side is better. What specifically hurts me to see is that right wing politics is getting to be so dirty that they do not seem to care that their own people are dying and continue on messages on vaccine misinformation. The right wing people (in the name of freedom, microchip, other stupid misguided information) are refusing shots which can save lives of them and loved ones. Stats are being skewed (young ones will be unaffected they say, but reality is even kids have died and as a percentage the people who dyed in 18 to 30 group is higher than those dead in 2 to 18 - the people in 31 to 60 group have died more than ones in 18 to 30 - so its still a huge treat regardless of age).

    I highly doubt these anti vaxxers for covid, have not vaccinated their kids for polio, MMR and other vaccinations, i believe they must have as people who did not vaccinate their kids were as a percentage 1 or 2 % but who havent taken covid vaccines are around 50 %. So clearly, they do believe in vaccination but only are skeptical about the covid vaccine. That means they are trusting the venomous misinformation on right wing media (someone like alex jones was a fringe earlier and now most of the right wing media has people like him). Its sad republicans will spread such misinformation that kills their own supporters at the cost of looking like a formerly fringe and now mainstream republican.

    Again, i am neutral and hence its sad to see Americans dying for stupid disinformation.

      I to am neutral. I can also argue the other way with that. I mean how much has either side told us about what is in the vaccine. Another question could the left be altering the numbers of deaths and cases of covid? Who knows? Crazy times we live in I think all we can do as Americans is try to come together on things and search out the truth with out any of the news people telling us. I'm sure they are ways to investigate they are supposed to do it all the time. God bless you all!
