Fox News Channel stunned the Dem Party after the October Ratings came in. Fox News accounted for 55 percent of all cable news viewers across prime time and 54 percent of total day viewers and beat its rivals for the 20th consecutive month.

Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC combined with total day and primetime viewers and the critical A25-54 Demo for the 15th consecutive month. Fox News had 98 of the top 100 cable news telecasts for the month of October.

Fox News beat both MSNBC and CNN in total day and prime time viewers in the key demo among Democrats and Independents and in a shocker, Fox News was the most-watched cable news network among Hispanic and Asian households in total day viewers.

Fox News’ The Five, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Jesse Watters Prime Time, Hannity, and Special Report with Bret Baier made up the five most-watched shows on cable.

The Five scored its 7th consecutive month at number one on all cable news. Tucker Carlson was number one in the critical 25-54 demo for the month.

In primetime, Fox News delivered 2.3 million viewers, 295,000 in the 25-54 demo and 180,000 with the 18-49 demo. October was also CNN’s worst month with primetime viewers year to date.

According to Fox News:

“According to Nielsen MRI Fusion, FNC also remained the most-watched network across the political spectrum with more Independents and Democrats choosing FNC as their preferred network than MSNBC and CNN in total day and primetime viewers in the A25-54 demo. 

“FNC was also the number one cable news network among Hispanic and Asian households in total day viewers.

“Gutfeld! was once again one of the highlights of the month garnering 2,159,000 P2+ and 337,000 A25-54 and continuing to make television history with its second highest-rated month since launch in viewers.
