A weird temporary reaction to the recent news surrounding Trump or a change in viewership overall? What do you guys think?


According to Nielsen, MSNBC led the three cable networks between 8-11 p.m., averaging 611,000 viewers between the ages of 25 and 54, while dominating with 2,440,000 viewers overall.

CNN came in second with 589,000 in the coveted demographic, while remaining in third in total viewers with 1,649,000. Fox slid to to third with 497,000 viewers in the demo, and 2,405,000 overall.

Despite the primetime dip last week, Fox is still above MSNBC and CNN in primetime and total-day ratings this month. 

The ratings slump came as primetime programs notably avoided and counter-programmed major news revelations last week, including reports that President Donald Trump disclosed classified information with Russian officials and that he had nudged former FBI director James Comey to lay off investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn. 


It seems Fox still leads in total count. But when you think of how it has been relatively alone in it's spin in terms of mass media it is kind of an interesting development.

So what about the others? It seems to me cable news as a whole would suffer.

Maybe it was the fake Seth Rich story they were forced to debunk because they pretty much made up

MSNBC is doing pretty well after being 3rd pretty much forever. CNN is kind of bumping along the bottom.

CNN is unusually high. Did the airports get more TV's recently? Also what's with the narrow age range?

I really don't know of many people that still watch the news on TV. I wonder who these people watching it are?

I am not sure about "fair and balanced", but it seems that the presence of biased news sources, especially those that openly proclaim to be so, may have increase because there is a market for it. People go out and hear what they want to hear.

Don't get it twisted, Fox is still number one in whole day total viewers. It's not even close.

A significant increase, even if it is not #1, would seemingly require more reasoning, as a significant decrease. I think that is the point. What is causing this?
