Fox News loses it’s #1 cable status to CNN

If Rupert Murdoch wants to save Fox News, he better right the ship quickly.

Vox reports:

For the first time in 20 years, Fox News can no longer say it’s the top-rated cable news network. In fact, from Election Day through Biden’s inauguration, Fox not only didn’t finish on top — it also finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in total viewers.

Inauguration day was particularly bad for Fox.

Vox, which is a vicious liberal rag, knows what’s wrong with Fox, and, broken clock-like, they’re surprisingly accurate.  They say “it’s not a coincidence that Fox News’s ratings decline coincided with the disappearance of Trump’s Twitter account, which the former president used relentlessly to promote his favorite Fox opinion hosts and denigrate their competition. And now, without the backing of one of its most influential fans, the network has been left to chart its way through an uncertain future.”

“Fox is a third-place network at this very moment. And that’s something that they are not used to and have not been used to since they started in ’96,” he added. “From basically the end of the Clinton impeachment onward, they have been the No. 1 network, and it’s something they’re used to touting and rubbing in the face of CNN and MSNBC. Inside, there’s a lot of turmoil on that.”

Fox bit the hand that fed them. Now, they’re suffering the consequences.

    1. Juan Williams is as IGNORANT as anyone can possibly be!!! So is Maria… whatever her last name is —- they wreak of IGNORANCE and BLINDLY follow anyone who’s a Dem!!

      1. No, not Maria Bartiromo, you must mean Marie Harf, the blonde. She was/is an Obama lover along with Juan Williams (he never has a good word for Trump, even when he did something great). Chris Wallace, Jessica Tarlov and a few others, they need to go also! Don’t forget Donna Brazile, the one who cheated and lied during the 2016 debate between Trump and Hillary. She gave Hillary the questions and lied about, got fired and them owned up to the lie. Can’t figure out why Fox hired her and gave her a promotion, I have on thought in mind!

        1. I still watch Tucker, Hannity, Ingram, Lou Dobbs (love him) and Maria Bartarimo. They still stick to conservative values and havent been manipulated yet by the liberal powers to be. No more daytime fox shows for me including the five bc of stupid Juan and Donna Brazil.

    2. Get Williams, Harfe, Tarlov, Chris Hahn, and Chris Wallace OFF OF FOX and don’t bring anymore DEMWITTS on as guest speaker and I will watch FOX along with 75+ million others. I don’t want to see “any” Demwitt Hypocrat on FOX. Right now I select what I watch on FOX, on the THE FIVE I have to MUTE Juan every time he flaps his jaws and never watch Wallace, makes me sick. I used to have FOX on most of the day and now I only watch Tucker, Hannity, Ingraham, Waters, Judge jeanine, Gutfell, Levine and a few others!

      1. You said it…Fox News is too liberal now except for the very few commentators you mentioned. I refuse to listen to Juan Williams or Chris Wallace!’

      2. Those are the ones I tune in to. I love Dana
        Parino, and I’ll watch anything she is on. Otherwise OAN and Newsweek are good. Not as professional as Fox yet, but getting there.

    3. Yep, I agree! I might say that the reason FOX’s ratings were low when that hair-sniffing crook was inaugurated was because no conservative was interested enough to watch it. I sure in the hell wasn’t!

  1. Oh dam… poor FOX… led by Murdock’s LIBERAL TRASH SON and HIS FILTHY LEFTIST WIFE have BIT the dust.
    GO TO NEWSMAX for all the TRUTH about the communist Demonrats !

    1. yes! Newsmax is so much better…time for that liberal creep Juan Williams to go along with Neil Cavuto and several others…What is Murdoch thinking putting his wife and filthy sons in charge?? Get an outsider..All FOX good hosts should jump ship and go to Newsmax!

      1. They have enough money to invest in their own channel—-Hannity, Tucker, Judge Jeanine, Mark Levin. I quit watching the Five long ago because of Williams! Chris Wallace is a joke!!!

        1. I AGREE WITH YOU MARY. I QUIT FOR THE SAME REASON. CHRIS WALLACE IS NOT HIS FATHER AND HE TRULY IS A JOKE. I TURNED ON THE FIVE FOR LESS THAN TWO MINUTES WHEN I SAW DONNA ON THERE I TURNED IT BACK TO NEWSMAX. LOVE THIS NETWORK AND LOVE GREG KELLY AS WELL AS CHRIS S. ONLY NETWORK I WATCH.

    2. ALL OUR GREAT ones need to start their own station, add Bill O Reilly! OR join OANN its family owned. Hardley any commercials and has REAL in the field reporting! On 24/7 news around the world, and great historical bits instead of commercials! Fox has gone down since the so called boys and lefty wife s started called the shots! Never watched any other stations cuz I knew I would get the truth from them! The other stations are fed from DC on what to say and how to present it! Their head honchos are related in some way to a person in DC! Get their marching orders from them, all RATS!
      Someone last year posted who was related to who, very interesting!

      1. OR LYNING RYAN! Hated Trumps guts. His ideas were supposed to be better! HMMM and wifey works on wall st! And surprise when he quit, they bought a BIG mansion! On the govt salary? HMMMMMM

      2. Juan Williams is radical leftist an babbles on way to much when he starts to talk I just fast forward it till he is off there are a couple others but Williams an Wallace are the worst

      1. Left FoxNews and never turning back —-who knows if they will flip flop again AND LIE
        Sorry, as a long timer viewer…Murdoch’s sonny kid ruined it COMPLETELY
        No more anything from FoxNews, not even Tucker’s hour can lure us back
        We no longer watch any news any more due to Fraudulent issues…lies, back stabbing, not standing up to the truth as a beacon light
        No more
        It all burned out last few years and we saw it go to the dumps
        Thank you for ruining it for the multitudes
        You lost and will lose more down the road

    1. I Truly Agree with you I have said for a few years that they where no good for Fox news I tune into News Max

      1. My Husband & I were loyal Fox Fans. Then they put on Donna Brazil, a well known cheater and liar. Can’t trust words that come out of her mouth.
        So decide the channel could not be trusted with the truth. With Wallace & Williams spouting out lies continuously, and not being called to the carpet for it, added the the disappointment. Fair and balanced use to be the slogan. Not any more.

  2. This is NOT the whole truth. You have only posted the “DAYTIME” ratings. (of which I never watch anyway) That being said, How does these other networks ratings hold up against Carlson, Hannity & Ingram???????? F U

  3. Get rid of Williams and we’ll watch again!! Definitely take Wallace with him!! They are both loser liberals!

  4. Trump should acquire Fox News, clean it up and bring it back No. 1 cable News Organization. Under the existing hooligan Organization it will never come back.

  5. The problem with Fox is its become just another liberal fake news station nobody in the conservative field is interested in what they have to say – I would love to listen to Tucker and the Judge and a few others but won’t support them on Fox after what they’ve done

  6. We left the night that Stirewalt, Breir, and Martha announced AZ for Biden way before the rest of the country had even finished voting. That one acdt stopped a lot of people from going to vote, shame on Fox. We watch Newsmax NOW.
    Cant stand that ignoramous Juan Williams either he is totally devoid of any grey matter.

  7. I still watch a few Fox reporters but not nearly as often as I did. The audacity Fox demonstrated on the first debate with Bully Chris Wallace and the election night coverage with far left Fox reporters just showed conservatives how loyal Fox was to Conservatives. I now watch OAN and Newsmax. You don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

  8. This article states the facts correctly! Fox was always my go to news outlet. Murdoch gave control to his sons(big mistake) and their downward spiral began. With the advent of Newsmax, which has exploded, now Murdoch is realizing that the once popular station made a serious mistake. The likes of Donna, Juan and a long list of never Trumper hosts pushed the network into their dismal standing. If I watch, I watch only, Tucker, Hannity, Dobbs, Laura and Waters. The rest of that ungodly crew can go straight to H E L L.

  9. It’s not the conservative channel it used to be. Disappointed in election coverage and announcing outcomes too soon. Some commentators that are just too biased to the left should not be on channel.

  10. WELL, …… IF, Fox would stick to proper News Reporting with Reliable and Real News –
    They could have kept their Top Spot……BUT, No – they had to sink and dip to being
    some Fake Media News and did other dumb stuff, which only hurt them and their
    Stupid Ratings, which ALL – News Agencies are So Worried About…… REPORT THE
    REAL NEWS WITH NO ADDING OF CRAP TO MAKE IT SENSATIONALIZED IN SOME
    WAY OR THE OTHER………..And, Guess What – One Could Just Get A Top Spot, Again.!!
    You do good – You Win……. Bad crap and You Lose.!!! Pretty Simple.!!!

  11. FOX held a unique marketing position. The ONLY conservative-leaning voice in the media melee. Thank the liberal inheritor Murdoch kids (and wives) for willingly giving up that position to become just one more liberal voice in the also-ran cacophony. Self-inflicted wounds driven by hatred.

  12. I only watch Fox for Tucker, Sean and Laura anyway. Chris Wallace is too smug about issues dealing with Conservatives and he comes off like a loyal Liberal. Juan Williams is a sorry excuse for a liberal. He does noting but whine about how badly he and they are getting picked on. Certainly not about how they could help themselves. Of course he doesn’t have much to work with. Greg is okay but not all that serious. My main favorite is Mark Levin, if you take that man off the air for any reason, I’m leaving for good! I like the other three, but I love Mark.

  13. this does not surprise me when Paul Ryan came on board and you kept Chris Wallace i knew it would not be long

  14. I will watch “Fox” again if their value and agenda are aligned with that of President Trump and if they kick all the lefties such as Chris Wallace, Juan, etc.out.

  15. THE TO MANY LYING DEMORATS ON THE FOX NEWS NOW TRYING TO ACT LIKE THEY KNOW EVERY THING BUT KNOWS NOTHING BUT BULL CRAP>:
    GET RID OF THE JUDASES>WILLIAMS >WALLACE > BRAZILE >AND A COUPLE MORE>:

    ;

  16. Absolutely as to Williams, Wallace, and that little cute fat guy on their financial channel. If I need a break from sanity I can switch over to CNN or MSNBC to darken my mind.
    It’s dumbfounding to me that 200 or so Lefty pundits and Rinos think 80 million conservatives should listen to them like gods. If you’re looking for the trash to throw out, they’re raising their hands saying, “Hey, we’re over here!”

  17. FOX was placed on a pedestal by conservatives. FOX brought in liberal news folks to compete more with other networks. FOX became arrogant and felt snug with their ratings. The Trump followers made FOX and now has destroyed their arrogant empire. I watch Hannity, Tucker, Levine, Greg and the Judge. Stopped watching the 5 because of Juan and the rest of FOX.

  18. Williams, Harf, all their evil ignorant leftist demons need to go to CNN where they will find friends. Jesse tries to call Juan on his blind stupidity, and most libs featured on FOX are paraded to show their balance, but you do NOT balance with SATAN!!! WHY put more ignorance out there to feed the sheeple. The sheeple are ignorant, drunk, high, unable to discern truth. The truth exists independent of you and me. It is NOT what you choose to believe…it simply is. If we believe lies, we become the victims of incorrect thinking. Broadcast TRUTH!!!

  19. YOU SHOULD GET RID OF WILLIAMS, SMITH, BRAZILE , WALLACE HARF AND OTHERS WHO ARE HATWERS OF TRUMP THAT IS WHY WE ALL HERE LEFT FOX FOR NEWSNAX!!!!

  20. Chris Wallace is suppose to balance it so that people don’t think Fox is racist for paying Williams to be, and act, so ignorant. If they only had Williams it might be considered a racist act to make him be so stupid. So they have two stupid idiots to throw off any indication of racism.

  21. I watch “The Five” and that’s about it on Fox these days. Newmax is very good and seems to lean towards Conservatives. I’ve watched Fox for years and can’t believe they let it fall like this. Turning to the Left is killing them! What I don’t understand is why can’t they see it like we do. They think we are going to change our minds? Don’t think so! 76+ million people want something that is theirs. Why wouldn’t somebody want to cater to their thoughts?

  22. YOU BETTER START CLEANING HOUSE SOON OR THERE WON’T BE ANYTHING LEFT OF FOX TO SAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. I watch the five , but mute it whenever Jauin speaks. His comments gets getting so far out i can’t bear to hear him speak. Really like waters talk because his comments are mostly rational. Most of day time losibg me.

  24. I totally agree w/Arnold….but Fox also needs to rid itself of Cavuto, Paul Ryan, Donna Brazil and Bret Bier as well. Murdoch needs to clean house of all of the above and do it quick!!!! What was a great “real” news channel has gone down the drain in a hurry. I still watch Tucker, Hannity and Laura…but that’s it. What a shame !

  25. I stopped watching Fox when John Roberts said I am not going to take it anymore —there was a clip of him saying Trump denounce the white supremist today and that was like 2 years ago and then he comes on just a few months ago saying Trump will not denounce white supremacist—he is a liar and I will never watch Fox until he is gone——along with Cavuto, Williams, Brizelle, Jenidia,Smith, boy there are a lot more—I just do not watch Fox anymore–it will never change————

  26. I agree Juan Williams is one of the problems at Fox. I believe Chris Wallace is their main problem and both should go. I do like to hear other views on an issue but these two are so biased that their opinions are worthless.K

  27. Get rid of the liberals, hire more conservatists, report conservatist news, report the good news of America, report the bad news the MSM is pushing and give us the real news. THEN, we might come back.

  28. I have watched Fox News all day long for so many years no more. I do watch a few of my favourites but that’s it I have switched over to newsmax and oan. I am afraid that people who have left Fox will not return because newsmax is great. I guess Fox didn’t think that conservatives would leave but they did And will probably never return to matter what they do

  29. Their liberal bias has become very obvious. I did not agree with everything that our president did but he was the first president in my lifetime that truly cared about America and the people of America. Some of your commentators who pretend to be conservatives are far from that and they tell on themselves quite easily with their conversation. I have totally stopped watching Fox News at all hours of the day and so has much of my immediate and extended family. I may watch an occasional clip on YouTube just to see what Tucker is saying otherwise not interested anymore. Sorry to see you go, but there is no reason for me to return. I don’t trust what you have to say anymore. Newsmax is where I get my news now. They are not completely free of bias but at least they provide both sides of the issue.

  30. I watched Fox and recorded shows all the time, until they called Arizona early and started to call sleepy Joe “President elect” early. Basically threw President Trump to the side. Need to get read of CHRIS WALLACE, JUAN WILLIAMS, AND GERALDO RIVERA. Saying Biden speech was the best speech they ever heard. Sounded like they wanted to lick the toe jam between Biden’s toes. Sickening.

        1. Not sure they could get payed what they make now. Hannity is the top payed @ $40+ million n Carson is next. But they would make a nice addition to NEWSMAX. I like the newscasters they have now. They don’t need to be booted they are good, also.

    1. Correct! Took them off my Dish Account. When the “leftists” attitudes really became clear, I started to feel “depressed”. Since taking them off my Dish Account . . . .now am happy and really not depressed at all! One of the best things that I every did. By the way, young Murdoch’s wife said very nasty things about our President . . .and it was published. I am glad that we are getting honest news from NEWSMAX!

    2. This could be a plum for Trump to negotiate controlling interest.
      The network would immediately be successful with him as the owner.
      I can envision him telling a few there, “You’re Fired.” I’d love it.

  31. Most of the host are bumbling imbeciles that would sell thier own children for thier popularity. Watched for years I’m sickened by the countless sellouts on fox. I’m even beginning to question Tucker’s loyalty to whom he serves! Run away fast. Go to newsmax.

    1. I stay strictly with NEWSMAX. I do read or watch Hannity n Carlson from time to time. Thank you Newsmax

  32. WHEN you BETRAY your BASE, to APPEAL to larger AUDIENCE, WELL THAT WORKED OUT WELL, RIGHT FOXY…? WE’RE # 3… GOOD JOB BOYS…DO YOU THINK IT IS TIME TO FIND YOUR FAIR AND BALANCED?

  33. Watching LIBERAL Fox daytime or on the weekend , is NO different than watching FAKE opinion networks cnn and msnbc . We DUMPED LIBERAL Fox and went to NEWSMAX and AON , they are great and do give Conservatives a voice . LIBERAL Fox made thier bed , now let them croak in it !!!

    1. I turn off CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, mouthy Kimmel, Colbert and all of the main news media.
      I think everybody has a gag point when being force fed lies.

  34. TO MANY DEMOCRATS WORK FOR YOU AND CHRIS WALLACE IS DISGUSTING, GET RID OF HIM,DONNA BRAZIL, WAN, WOMAN ON WEEKENDS 6AM SKINNY THAN 1 YEAR OLD SON, BAD TALKERS AND DEMOS TRASH THEM

    1. You be right about Wallace being ‘full of gas and rotten to the core.’ I wouldn’t give that lame, dirty duck the perspiration off/ from my glutinous maximus! Those Fox folks were basking in all the glory– but they will soon be begging for the crumbs.

  35. Fox is losing and Rupert has a lot to overcome what his sons brought in. I have followed FOX from their beginning when ED Hill was on their station. But these liberals that brought in turned me off. I stuck with them until the likes of Maria Harf and Donna Brazeale came aboard. Breazele I believe is the one that fed Clinton information ahead of time in her campaign. Of course she was not at FOX at the time but if she was a crook before she certainly is now. Of course some were under cover liberals like Chris Wallace and Sandra Smith but I put up with him. I personally hope Rupert can recover because of what he did in the past but my biggest loyalty today is with OANEWS. They have excellent investigations programs.

  36. Fox , maybe you will learn to tell the truth on the news. Also we do not need your views . We want all the truth not just one side. Do not add or take out words. Just the facts please.

  37. I have watched Fox for years, but the election coverage was disgusting, especially from a conservative News Station. Chris Wallace fawned over
    Joe Biden during the debate, and his comment that Biden gave the best address he had ever heard, was laughable.
    Donna Brazile, gave the questions in advance to Hilary Clinton, and Juan Williams opinions are ridiculous.
    If you want your audience back you need to clean up your act!!!
    Newsmax and OAN is the cable news to watch !!!!!!!!

  38. Showcase liberals like Chris Wallace, Donna Brazil etc. and traditional Fox viewers recoil. Yesterday anti Trumper Brazil was on the Five, I turned the channel!

  39. Williams on the “Five” keeps me aware of how Ignorant Liberals can be. Watching Jesse and Greg torturing him is a delight for me to enjoy. The Murdock kid should be sentenced to watching Levin 20 hours a day. He’s and Idiot. I don’t understand Sr’s thinking.
    Brazil isn’t worth acknowledging. She probably was hired to keep Juan company in the Fox Bird Brain Liberal Club.
    Chris Wallace is my main problem with Fox. Debate #1 started Trumps fall from grace. He couldn’t hold his fathers Undies and comes across as a Smug Egotistical Empty Suit. What was Fox thinking allowing that idiot to Narrate that Debate. Makes You Wonder.
    America needs a platform to keep Sleepy Joe and Company Visible 24/7 without censure. The Truth ……

  40. I was a loyal FOX fan of the five and other shows for years. I watched faithfully until Juan Williams, Chris Wallace,and Donna Brazille got so out of control with their liberal nonsense and hate for our President until I stayed upset far too many times. Needless to say during the election, I felt betrayed, it seemed like I was watching all the alphabet stations. I turned them off and started watching Newsmax, oan and one America. They are refreshingly different and fair. Wake up FOX…I will return when you decide to move back to the middle.

  41. I agree. I haven’t watched Fox since that idiot Chris Wallace did that very slanted debate. Trump was fighting both Biden and Wallace. When they fire Wallace, Juan Williams and Donna Brazil I will gladly watch again. I used to be an avid fan of Fox.

  42. Chris Wallace, Donna Brazile, Juan Williams and some of the others Democrat talking heads is why I left FOX. I don’t like liars and cheaters in my personal life so why would I bring them into my house on my TV. Those named above should be fired.

  43. Along with Newsmax, I also like OANN they did fearless reporting about the 2020 election fraud too, no holds barred about China connection and the Biden family.
    Fox News was for many a conservative beacon, but they undermined and sabotaged that mandate, and took for granted their audience, and thought they could teach us a lesson with the likes of Chris Wallace, Donna Brazile,Juan Willams, and lets not forget the Philbury Dough boy Neil Covuto. or Judge Andrew Napilitano ,who I think is related to Anthony Fauci.
    I hope Fox winds up in the dust bin with all those elected republican grifter consultants.

  44. To Facebook and Twitter:::: Fox never considered the possibility of being in 3rd place//when near 1/2 of your customer’s is conservative to lean in either direction on politics can be very harmful//19 years fist place now in 3rd behind CNN and MSNBC is a disgrace. Poor management not to have foreseen this////Please note: Facebook and Twitter you to can fall just as quick as Fox. Lost billions of revenue//Just be fair//watch what you do//Do not let a few harm your companies that you work so hard to develope///This suggestion goes across the board from any company or individual that makes its political position known///Please consider this a helpful suggestion. I would like to see you survive

    1. Well stated, John. Cable t.v. is shot, just a matter of time before its rotten mess decays. CNN calls for Fox’s destruction? FOX wrecked themselves. FOX was unable to see the danger that their own fans could wreak. Put FOX on the rotten pile. Good note to Facebook and Twitter. They are dead to me. Viva the communication revolution. Bob B

  45. I have watched Fox for years, but the election coverage was disgusting, especially from a conservative News Station. Chris Wallace fawned over
    Joe Biden during the debate, and his comment that Biden gave the best address he had ever heard, was laughable.
    Donna Brazile, gave the questions in advance to Hilary Clinton, and Juan Williams opinions are ridiculous.
    If you want your audience back you need to clean up your act!!!
    Newsmax and OAN is the cable news to watch !!!!!!!!

  46. i have stopped watching Fox News i used to be a watching of the station not any more to bad they was a good station to many liberals

  47. FOX has lost its way and is now a joke and impossible to watch anymore.
    The Hiring of Donna Brazille and the ongoing bias of Juan Williams and Chris Wallace has really diminished FOX.
    The only shows worth watching are Hannity and Mark Levin and Lou Dobbs the rest of the FOX programming sucks and not worth the time to watch.
    NEWSMAX has become a much better source of objective news. At least they tell it straight.
    Its too bad but FOX is now another left leaning waste of time.
    Get some new programming and management.

  48. I have been disgusted with them for several years now. When they loaded up the liberals like Wallace, Brazile, Williams plus Baer and Mccallum are pseudo libs, I knew the direction they were going was not for me. When the ladies turned in Ailes and Rupert turned it over to his liberal dunce kid it has been going backward to the dump since. If the good ones like Tucker, Hannity and Ingrahm were smart they would get out of there as fast as they can while people still remember who they are.

  49. In the good old days the media was the check between the government and the people.Now the media is an advocate for the government and has abandoned their responsibility as the go between the two.The days of fair and balanced reporting are gone for good. Their bias reporting for one political party is outrageous.We will never get the truth unless the media is impartial and reports the facts and only the facts.

  50. Fox can stop sticking Donna Brazil and the black man on the Five( who closely resembles an ape) down our throats and maybe it would be more palatable to watch some of their programs!!

  51. I WILL NEVER WATCH FOS NEWS AGAIN CHRIS WALLACE IS FIRED ALONG WITH JUAN WILLIAMS AND EVERY LEFT LEANING BROADCASTERS . THAT MEANS I WILL NOT WATCH MY FAVORITE SHOWS HANNITY , TUCKER, INGRAM, FOX AND FRIENDS IN THE MORNING

  52. Pelosi, etc.are NOT democrats..they are Communists. They are holding the National Guard hostage to protect them from WE THE PEOPLE …there will be hell to pay soon, as we will not put up with these treasonous actions!

  53. LOU DOBBS, HANNEDY, TUCKER AND THE LADY AFTER HANNEDY AND PERHAPS ED, SHOULD GO TO NEWSMAX, AND ONE AMERICAN NEWS. THIS WOULD REALLY RUIN FOX AND CEMENT NEWS MAX.
