Fox show “Outnumbered” became one of the most watched shows on cable for the month of August as the network continues to dominate the competition. Fox blew both MSNBC and CNN out of the water, with double their combined viewership numbers.
“Outnumbered” is one of Fox’s newest shows and despite its infancy, the show has skyrocketed to take over its timeslot, a notable achievement given that it airs during the day.
“At 12 PM/ET, Outnumbered earned 1.9 million viewers and 254,000 in the demo,” a Fox media relations report stated, adding, “Notably, FNC’s Outnumbered, America’s Newsroom, The Faulkner Focus, The Story, and America Reports topped NBC’s TODAY with Hoda & Jenna and ABC’s GMA3 in viewers.”
The show, co-hosted by Harris Faulkner, Emily Compagno, and Kayleigh McEnany often with a rotating contributor and guest, wasn’t the only Fox hit to sweep the rating charts.
Most notably, some of the highest viewed Fox shows are in the primetime slots, destroying the competition from other networks as Fox is crowned for the 19th month in a row in primetime viewership: “The Five (3,389,000), Tucker Carlson Tonight (3,316,000), Hannity (2,915,000), Jesse Watters Primetime (2,856,000), The Rachel Maddow Show (2,726,000).”
For a more comprehensive understanding of just how much Fox is crushing other networks during primetime, the report provided comparisons from 2021 to 2022: “FNC: 2,337,000 total viewers – down 6% (311,000 in 25-54- down 22%). CNN: 733,000 total viewers – down 11% (153,000 in 25-54 – down 21%). MSNBC: 1,299,000 total viewers – up 5% (134,000 in 25-54 – down 19%).”
“FOX News Channel (FNC) finished August 2022 as the third most-watched network in all of television during weekday primetime, outpacing ABC and trailing only CBS and NBC,” the report emphasized. “According to Nielsen Media Research, FNC remained cable’s highest-rated network in total day and primetime with total viewers and the top-rated in total day with the 25-54 demo.”
“FNC continued to excel against the competition on weekends throughout the month,” the report explained. “outpacing CNN and MSNBC combined with total viewers and the 25-54 demo during primetime on Saturdays and total day and primetime total viewers on Sundays.”
The report also compared its numbers from last year to this year for daily television, showing that they continue to dominate the competition: “FNC: 1,487,000 total viewers – up 4% (211,000 in 25-54 – down 12%).
