Both Fox News and Fox Business just wrapped up their best quarters ever.
Fox News ended the 3rd quarter with its most-watched quarter ever in total day viewers.
FOX Business Network also ended the 3rd quarter with its highest ratings ever, narrowing the gap with CNBC to its smallest in history, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Fox News averaged 1.4 million viewers and 276,000 in the key 25-54 demo over a 24 hour period.
In primetime, FNC was up double-digits compared to the same quarter last year, which included the network’s record-breaking Republican presidential primary debate with 24 million viewers.
FNC handily beat the cable news competition, averaging 2.4 million viewers in primetime (up 25%) and 459,000 (up 16%) in the demo.
MSNBC topped Jeff Zucker's CNN in primetime total viewers for the first time in two years.
In the month of September, Fox Business Network closed the gap with CNBC, pulling within 5,000 total viewers in business day, which is the smallest margin since the network launched in 2007.
So much for Fox going in the tank without Roger Ailes.
