Fox News Is Most-Watched Cable Network for 5th Week Straight

By Chris Ariens 

Even with its top ratings getter underwater for part of last week, Fox News Channel was the most-watched network on cable. Yes, that’s Bill O’Reilly on a snuba expedition in the Turks and Caicos last week. “The turtles were happy to see us,” O’Reilly said on his show last night.

As for last week, fueled by the record-breaking South Carolina primary and the Nevada caucus coverage on Saturday, FNC was No. 1 in prime time and total day among all basic cable networks for the week.

CNN was 7th and MSNBC was 13th in prime time total viewers. Both CNN and MSNBC aired town halls last week, while Fox News did not.
