FOX News Sunday had its best year ever in the Washington D.C. market, finishing as the #2 Sunday morning public affairs show in the important market behind well-established leader, NBC’s Meet the Press.
U.S. News and World Report’s Paul Bedard writes about the strong numbers in the nation’s capital.
“While it may sound silly that the anchors of these shows fight for the No. 2 spot in Washington, for their newsmaker bookers, it is very important,” writes Bedard. “The reason is simple: Guests most want to be seen in Washington where their friends, enemies, and reporters writing about what they say live.”
FOX News Sunday finished the year as the fourth-ranked Sunday morning public affairs show in national data.
