    Q3 Cable Ratings: Fox News Cable Shows Fill Top 10

    Q3 Cable Ratings: FNC Shows Fill Top 10; #3 Network on Cable; Beck Grows Timeslot 136%

    By Chris Ariens on Sep 29, 2009 04:35 PM

    If you've been following the cable news ratings, and we know you have, you'll know Fox News has been dominating, even more than usual, in 2009.

    In the just-finished third quarter, Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC combined in Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo in both total day and primetime viewing.

    FNC is also the only cable news network to post across the board gains vs. Q3 '08.

    • In Total Viewers, FNC was up 2% in primetime and up 8% in total day.

    • In A25-54 viewers, FNC was up 5% in primetime and up 12% in total day.

    • FNC was the third-ranked cable network behind ESPN and USA.

    FNC had the top 10 programs in cable news. "The O'Reilly Factor" has been the #1 cable news show for 106 consecutive months. From 4pmET to 11pmET, all of FNC's programs showed growth, most double digits:

    Rank/Show — Total Viewer / A25-54 demo growth
    2. "Hannity," -- 9% / 17%
    3. "Glenn Beck," -- 89% / 136%
    4. "On the Record," -- 16% / 21%
    5. "Special Report" -- 20% / 34%
    6. "The FOX Report" -- 9% / 18%
    9. "Your World" -- 16% / 27%

    And for the month of September, FNC claimed the Top 13 programs in cable news in Total Viewers, which hasn't happened since Nov. 2004.

    It was the network's best month for the year in today day with Total Viewers and A25-54 viewers.

    Also, "America's Newsroom" (9-11amET) with Megyn Kelly and Bill Hemmer had its highest rated month (and quarter) in A25-54 viewers.

    While CNN came in second for Q3, MSNBC wins primetime in younger viewers for the month of September. And for 2009 to date, MSNBC has pulled ahead of CNN in primetime in the A25-54 demo.

    For September, "The Ed Show" at 6pmET, "Hardball with Chris Matthews" at 7pm and "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" at 8 pm all beat CNN head-to-head in the younger demo.

    After a heavy news cycle during Q3 2008, (campaigns, conventions, collapses), MSNBC was down across the board in Q3 2009.

    In primetime, the network was down 10% in Total Viewers and down 21% in A25-54 demo viewers.

    In total day, MSNBC was down 17% in Total Viewers and down 25% in A25-45 viewers.
