The network’s daytime lineup continued to thrive, as “Outnumbered,” “The Faulkner Focus,” “America’s Newsroom with Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino,” “America Reports with Sandra Smith and John Roberts” and “The Story with Martha MacCallum” all delivered strong weeks to help Fox News’ total-day audience crush other cable news outlets.
“FOX & Friends” averaged 1.3 million viewers to beat CNN’s soon-to-be “re-imagined” morning program and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” for the 76th week in a row. In fact, CNN’s long-struggling “New Day” averaged only 382,000 viewers as the program in its current form is expected to come to an end at some point this fall.
Fox News also beat CNN and MSNBC combined over the weekend, with “Cavuto Live” averaging 1.4 million viewers to finish as the most-watched Saturday show on cable news and “Sunday Morning Futures” averaging 1.6 million to win the Sunday title with guest-host Sean Duffy.
