Fox News Sets Record

Fox News is going to finish out 2018 as the most watched channel in all of cable.

2018 will go down as Fox News highest-rated year in primetime in its 22-year history.

FNC had 2.5 million total viewers and finished the year as the most-watched basic cable network for the third consecutive year in both primetime and total day (1.4 million) among total viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.

“FOX News continues to outperform other basic cable networks, proving once again that our news coverage and premiere team of journalists and opinion hosts are the best in the business. With the recent launch of FOX Nation, an increased focus on digital and the strong ratings momentum we have built, we are confident that 2019 will offer our loyal viewers even more ways to engage with FOX News,” FNC’s CEO Suzanne Scott and FNC’s President Jay Wallace said in a joint statement.
