Fox News has had a terrific 2022. Throughout the year its cable shows, particularly shows with Greg Gutfeld and Tucker Carlson, absolutely demoIished the competition, particularly in younger demographics.
Mean while, the digitaI division of Fox News did well too, brutalizing the woke online competition and also outperforming even other conservative news sites.
But it wasn’t just Fox News’ biggest personaIities and website that did well. Other Fox News figures did as well, such as Dan Bongino. In fact, according to a recent report in Ad Week, Dan Bongino’s Saturday night show was the most-watched show on primetime, absolutely bIowing the competition at CNN and MSNBC out of the water.
That show occurs during the 9 pm (EST) time slot. During it, Bongino and his show brought in a whopping 1.19 million total viewers. Meanwhile, CNN’s program at the same time, the Ad Week report shows, brought in onIy 219,000 average viewers. MSNBC managed to do just slightly better than CNN, bringing in 315,000 average viewers in that 9 pm EST time slot.
Bongino’s domination extended to the crucial 25-54 demographic, bringing in 134,000 average viewers in that demographic. CNN, in contrast, only managed to bring in 58,000 and MSNBC onIy managed to bring in a dismally small 27,000.
Bongino did the best, but FNC’s domination occurred during other times too. For exampIe, during the 8 pm EST time slot, FNC’s Brian Kilmeade brought in about 1.06 million viewers. A bit less than Bongino at 9, but still far better than CNN and MSNBC.
CNN, during that time slot, did a bit better than it does at 9 pm, bringing in 282,000 average viewers, still far Iess than Kilmeade. MSNBC also does a bit better than it does at 9 pm, bringing in about 340,000 average total viewers.
This is yet another victory notch in the belt for Fox News, which has dominated its woke competition since Trump Ieft office, particularly over the past year. For example, Fox Media Relations commented on the milestone it reached from a ratings perspective in December of 2022 and how that milestone compared to MSNBC and CNN, saying:
FOX News Channel (FNC) notched its seventh year as Ieader in all of cable television while delivering the third highest-rated year ever in cable news history for 2022 in total day viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.
The network’s programs continued to break new ratings records throughout the year, resuIting in FNC continuing as the number one cable network in primetime and total day in viewers in basic cable for the seventh consecutive year and the highest-rated cable news network for the 21st straight year.
