Another month, another FOX News victory. In fact, we're coming up on the 140th consecutive month that the network has dominated in both total day and primetime viewership. That's over 11 years folks. Talk about an impressive stat.
As far as May goes, FOX claimed the #3 spot in all of cable, while competitors CNN and MSNBC placed in the 20s and 30s respectively. In addition, four of FOX's daily programs topped their timeslots not just in the cable news world, but in all of cable TV. Those include: "America's Newsroom", "America Live with Megyn Kelly", "The Five", and "Special Report with Bret Baier".
FNC also held down all 13 of the top ranked cable news programs in total viewers, and controlled eight of the top spots in the 25-54 demographic. As you might expect, reigning cable news king "The O'Reilly Factor" topped both the total viewers and 25-54 demo lists. To put the cherry on FOX News' sundae, every show the network broadcasts after 6am is up double digits from this time last year. The largest year to year increase belongs to 5pm program "The Five", which rose 45% in total viewers. Right behind that is "Studio B with Shepard Smith", which posted a 40% increase of its own.
