TV Newser:

Fox News had its second-highest rated week of the year in primetime last week, second only to the week of the Boston Marathon bombing in April. From 8pm to 11pmET, the network averaged 2,098,000 total viewers and 376,000 A25-54 viewers, ranking second in all of cable. By comparison, MSNBC averaged 716,000 total viewers and 202,000 A25-54 viewers, while CNN had 433,000 viewers and 146,000 viewers, respectively. It was also the second-highest week of the year for Fox News in the network’s expanded primetime block, which includes Greta Van Susteren‘s “On the Record.” From 7pm to 11pmET, FNC averaged 2,377,000 total viewers and 442,000 A25-54 viewers.

Fox nearly doubled the average combined audience of CNN and MSNBC (in overall primetime viewers), and solidly outpaced their combined competition within ‘the demo.’ Interestingly, FNC’s ratings have flourished as they’ve devoted heavy coverage to the Obamacare meltdown, while CNN’s have suffered.

I just cannot seem to get into Megyn Kelly’s new show. I much preferred her daytime show…

I’m enjoying the new FOX lineup. Megan has become my favorite I also like that her show is live. In second place is Greta who I like a lot more at 7 then I did at 10. She’s getting a lot of great guests too. Dick Cheney most recently also noticed RINO McCain on Greata trying to look like conservative.

I don’t know why those numbers are pertinent. Is that the number of viewers that watch their 1/2 hour nightly news or that watch Wheel of Fortune etc…

Sorry. I thought I made the decision not to post anything, but somehow that badly formatted raw data table sneaked through.

The stats that I was starting to work with were for nightly news viewership only, however.
