Kayleigh McEnany’s show “Outnumbered” continues to dominate the competition in total viewers and the coveted 25-54 age demographic on Monday.
“Outnumbered” got almost three times as many viewers as CNN’s “Inside Politics” and also tripled the number of viewers that MSNBC’s show “Andrea Mitchell Reports” got in the same time slot.
This news adds to Fox News’ overall streak of dominating the cable news ratings.
McEnany’s daytime show also defeated some of CNN’s primetime lineup. “Outnumbered” received 1.68 million viewers, while Don Lemon only received 649,000 viewers.
The total viewers for the timeslot were:
- Fox, OUTNUMBERED: 1,768,000

- MSNBC, ANDREA MITCHELL REPORTS: 580,000

“Outnumbered” isn’t the only Fox News show to receive top ratings.
Fox News Channel finished July as the No. 1 cable network across the board. They averaged 1.4 million total day viewers. They were the only cable network to pass the on-million viewer threshold.
They also finished as the most-watched basic cable channel during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m., averaging 2.2 million viewers compared to 1.3 million for MSNBC in second place.
Fox News reported:
It was the 18th straight month that Fox News finished as the most-watched cable news network during primetime.
The demographic most coveted by advertisers also preferred Fox News, as the network finished with the largest audience of adults aged 25-54 among both total day and primetime. MSNBC continued having issues in the key category, finishing behind 19 basic cable options including TLC, Paramount, MTV, and FX among total day demo viewers. It was even worse for MSNBC during primetime, when the progressive network finished No. 21 and trailed Adult Swim, A&E, and Comedy Central, among others.
“The Five” averaged 3.2 million viewers to finish July as the most-watched program on cable news. It was the seventh time in the past eight months that “The Five” finished with more viewers than anything else on cable news.
Fox News also reported:
“Tucker” was the most-watched show among the key demo, followed by “The Five,” “Hannity,” “Jesse Watters Primetime,” “Gutfeld!,” The Ingraham Angle” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” as the eight most popular shows in the critical category aired on Fox News.
“FOX & Friends” averaged 1.3 million viewers and 198,000 among the demo to crush CNN’s long-struggling “New Day” and MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” combined in both categories. “FOX & Friends” has now been the No. 1 morning program on cable news for 16-straight months, and not a single CNN program outdrew it among the key demo during July.
Overall, Fox News continues to top the ratings, as many other networks see consistent decline.
