It’s Still Meet the Press

Harry Jaffe takes a look at the latest Sunday talk show ratings and discovers that ratings for all shows are up except for Fox News Sunday.

Wha? Wha? Wha? Are my eyes deceiving me? Is there a chink in the giant’s armor?. Jaffe wonders the same thing

    Fox is considered to have a conservative bent, so there’s the question: Is the Fox ratings decline related to the Bush administration’s decline in popularity?

More than likely it’s simply due to the fact that Fox’s cable channel has always outpaced its cable competition much more than its sister network did against NBC/ABC/CBS.

“The big dog is still NBC’s Meet the Press, with 4.5 million viewers each week. Face the Nation on CBS is still second, with 3.3 million. This Week is drawing closer with 2.7 million viewers.

Fox’s news program ranks fourth with 1.5 million viewers; CNN’s Late Edition With Wolf Blitzer is fifth with 615,000.”
