The existence of the main stream media the people’s critique of it has been the subject of much discussion for some time.
For whatever reasons, there seem to be, to coin a phrase, retrospective revisionism among many on the left that say that distrust in the media was only sowed after Trump, in his infamous thuggishness, displayed such open contempt for it.
This is simply untrue on its face. But perhaps that is best reserved for another article. In fact, there seems to be some quite good news for Fox News in terms of its ratings, and one Fox personality in particular.
Now, it was reported earlier today by ConservativeBrief that:
Fox News has been crashing every other cable news channel in the ratings for a long time and now a new show is smashing the ratings too.
Yahoo News went on to report that:
Jesse Waters took over as the permanent host of the 7 PM EST weekday time slot this week on Fox News Channel and he raked in 3.8 million total viewers on his first day, Monday. That represented the network’s best ratings in that timeslot in more than a year.
In fact, Watters’ debut scored double the viewership for the hour compared to the same day in 2021 and more viewers than every “Fox News Primetime” telecast since the show launched last year with a rotating cast of hosts.
In fact, Watters drew more viewers — including 537,000 in the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54 — than Fox News has gotten at the 7 p.m. slot since Jan. 6, 2021.
That was the day of the famous riot at the Capitol in which a Donald Trump supporter was killed by Capitol Police.
Notably, “Jesse Watters Primetime” got more viewers than ABC’s “The Bachelor.” CNN’s 7 p.m. offering, “Erin Burnett OutFront,” drew 700,000 total average viewers, while MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” netted 1.2 million, giving “Jesse Watters Primetime” a 446% advantage and a 216% advantage over each of them respectively.
“The Five,” which Watters also co-hosts, was the top-rated cable program on Monday, pulling in 3.9 million total average viewers, of whom 588,000 were in the demo.
Additionally, FNC’s “The Five” at 5 PM/ET remained the top-rated live program in all of cable, with 3.9 million total viewers and 588,000 in the demo.
He spoke to “The Wrap” on Monday, before his show debuted, and gave an idea of what he envisioned for it.
The Wrap further reported that Watters said that it would be “an entertaining hour with news and politics and culture, crime, tabloid — everything.” Which means he wants to be certain to take into account viewer feedback.
“We’re also going to be debuting something,” he said. “You know how my mom’s always texting me? We didn’t think that was fair for just my mom to be able to text me, so we’re going to be putting out a number where the whole country can text me. We’re going to have an open line of communication with the country, so I’ll be listening to them.”
So, it seems that Fox News is the only network of the main stream media that not only is coming out unscathed, but is in fact, dominating. We have previously reported on the dismal showing in the ratings by leftie networks like MSNBC and CNN. Yes, CNN is leftie, don’t kid yourself. It seems that people are inexplicably sick of being lied and lectured to. From the dearly departed Chris Cuomo to actual potato Brian Stelter, and finally to Rachel Maddow over at MSNBC, it seems seems that the people have spoken as to where they get there news.
