In news that will certainly not make Roger Ailes happy.
Since his ouster as the head of the right leaning network, the network's ratings have gone up.
“From a ratings perspective, it’s been stronger than ever,” said James Murdoch, 21st Century Fox CEO.
During the week of September 12th – September 18th, FOX News Channel was the most-watched cable channel in basic cable in total day viewers (1.4 million) for a fifth consecutive week.
Also, Fox News seems to not be missing Greta Van Susteren either. Since taking over On The Record, Brit Hume continues to deliver double-digit increases in the demo.
For the first two weeks of the program with a new host, On the Record averaged 2.1 million viewers and 360,000 in the 25-54 demo and is up 6% in viewers and up 11% in the demo compared to the August 2016 average.
Maybe Roger Ailes just wasn't as important as he thought he was.
