Ratings Plummet At Fox News After Deadly Capitol Coup

  • Ratings tanked at Fox News after Wednesday’s fatal insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. “Both CNN and MSNBC beat Fox News across the board in ratings on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Prior to that, according to Nielsen, the last time Fox News lost to both networks in total viewers was over 20 years ago, on 9/24/2000,” Justin Baragona of The Daily Beast reported Monday.
  • “On Friday, all of Fox’s primetime programs finished 3rd in total viewers and the demo,” he noted. “That includes Tucker Carlson, which drew 3.36 mill viewers and 535,000 in the demo. Chris Hayes totaled 3.74 mill and 706K in the demo & Anderson Cooper had 4.855 mill and 1.44 mill in demo.”
  • “Fox & Friends also struggled on Friday, finishing 3rd in both total viewers (1.083 mill) and the demo (215,000),” he added. “Morning Joe drew 2.078 mill viewers and 352,000 in demo while New Day totaled 1.373 mill and 385,000 in demo.”
