Fox News Absolutely Dominated The Cable News Rankings In 2015
Andrew Mark Miller

Liberals love to talk your ear off about how terrible Fox News is and how only idiots watch it but yet Fox News continues to absolutely dominate the ratings at every turn.

As far as cable news goes, they are the undisputed champ and clearly it isn’t just Republicans who are watching the channel even though Democrats rarely admit they watch too.

2015 has come to a close and the ratings for the year were released which proved that not only did Fox demolish the competition in the cable news arena, they were almost the most watched channel on cable.

From TVNewser:

Fox News Channel was No. 2 in prime time and No. 3 in total day viewers among all ad-supported cable networks during 2015. FNC averaged 1.79 million viewers between 8-11 p.m. ET, behind only ESPN’s NFL-heavy content. TBS, USA and TNT join FNC and ESPN among the Top 5 prime time networks. Nickelodeon and Adult Swim are the only networks to surpass FNC in total day viewership.

CNN finished No. 22 in prime time and No. 20 in total day, while MSNBC ranked No. 26 in both categories. FNC, CNN and MSNBC all improved their position compared to last year and FNC becomes the first news network to ever finish among the Top 3 in basic cable.



Pretty crazy numbers right there.

It’s always surprised me how liberals are so self righteous that they are willing to basically laugh in the face of a huge section of the American public just because they have a different view than them.

Fox lies! Faux News! All those cute nicknames mean nothing at the end of the day.

It’s all about ratings and at least for now, America has said loud and clear they are looking for a conservative perspective.

    NBC, ABC, and CBS used to be the big three, now they are the bottom dwellers. MSNBC is even below them.

    Never had any doubt Fox is tops

    that republican propaganda network feeds the righties the hatred, bigotry and fear they crave.

    Just like Rush and the rest of hate radio

    and now the presidential contender Trump

    Righties need someone to reinforce their warped reality.

    Great for ratings!!!!

    But "at the end of the day" even Spiney has to admit "loud and clear" FAUX News is biased.

    The fact that many people eat at MD's - doesn't mean the food is any good - "It's all about ratings".

    By all accounts, FAUX News is the LAMEST of "lamestream media".

    Even it's fans admit its totally biased "conservative perspective".

    You two can whine all you want but there isn't even another News outlet in the mix whatsoever. If you would like I can send you some cheese to go with that whine!

    What does that even mean?

    Being the largest watched network behind sports makes it the worst, as described by the MsNbC crowd.. All 500 of them? And 495 of them would admit the channel is biased to the point of lies.

    FAUX News is popular among the 65+ audience, the median age of their viewers. Nielsen doesn't really know how much older b/c they don't ask age beyond 65. FAUX News has been steadily losing younger people.

    Spiney thinks I'm too young, Nielsen thinks average FAUX News fans are too old.

    A spree, you call it? Sounds more fun than when I do it! Lol
    Me too. Hanging out, having a couple. It's a good start to the year I hope! If it's warm enough tomorrow I'm gonna see if the stripers made it out. ( although we haven't seen any sign of them in the ocean here yet.)

    "LAMEST of "lamestream media" & conspicuously biased by its "conservative perspective".

    But dave can't resist obsessing about "the MsNbC crowd" in his fantasies.

    Well , he loves trends, right?

    Christians are declining, both as a share of the U.S. population and in total number.

    WOW, this is awesome news, I guess it means something.

    Like the GOP will win the next Presidential election.

    Or both the House and the Senate.

    Or maybe the whole shebang.

    Or... maybe it doesn't mean a whole hill of beans apart from what profits some media companies are making.
    Maybe if we tell people that the brain is an App, they will start using it.

    Spiney went underground. Maybe we should do an intervention for him.

    Bottom line is that cable is not used by the vast majority under 30. Fox is dying out like it's viewers.

    Doesn't it bother you that there are enough idiots watching Fox News to make it dominate the ratings? That's a lot of idiots.
