(SNews) – Fox News star Jesse Watters had a great January as did the entire Fox Network. Fox dominated the competition delivering 99 of the Top 100 Cable News Telecasts in January.
Fox finished January 2023 surpassing CNN and MSNBC with total day and primetime viewers and A25-54 for the 23rd consecutive month. The Five continued to make history, marking ten consecutive months as the most-watched program on cable news.
Tucker Carlson Tonight continued to dominate cable news in the younger advertiser coveted 25-54 demo. Gutfeld! continued to bring in huge numbers and beat ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! and NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Fox and Friends continued to dominate the morning hours easily beating the newly launched CNN This Morning and MSNBC’s Morning Joe combined across both categories.
But the big winner was Jesse Watters and the big losers were Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg. Jesse had two shows that beat The View this month in a wake-up call for the ABC show.
