Fox News crushes CNN, MSNBC viewership as Don Lemon’s morning show has worst week since launch

‘FOX & Friends’ more than tripled the audience of ‘CNN This Morning’ Fox News Channel continued to dominate cable news viewership last week as MSNBC and CNN struggled to attract the viewers most coveted by advertisers. 

Fox News averaged 1.4 million viewers from Jan. 16-22, making it the only basic cable channel to crack the one-million viewer benchmark. ESPN finished second with an average audience of 825,000, followed by MSNBC, HGTV and Hallmark Channel. CNN managed an average of only 417,000 viewers during the same period. 

Fox News also obliterated CNN during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m., averaging nearly two million total viewers compared to only 444,000 for CNN.

I mean...
C'mon...

Do you really want to turn on CNN and be told how much of a racist you are every night?

It's been that way for a long time.

Oh, I really thought it was this forum. 

Fox is not good for business news.  Bartiromo screwed the pooch when she went all political on her business segment.  I have to get my business news from Bloomberg's Tom Keene, Jon Ferro and Lisa something.  Keene is a flaming liberal.  So is Lisa. But, they do deliver the business news in short order.  Beyond that, I have to look to publications like Barron's, which also has a liberal bias. Investor's Business Daily is also a good publication and has little bias at all. However, they don't get the high-power portfolio and fund manager interviews and in depth information that Barrons does.

The WSJ went all "newsy" about a decade or so ago.  Since then, they rarely report on serious business news.
