Fox News Channel has now been the No. 1 cable news channel for 54 consecutive quarters, and saw double digit prime time growth in the A25-54 demo compared to Q2 2014. Much of that demo growth was provided by Megyn Kelly‘s The Kelly File which was the most-watched cable news show in June in the demo, for just the second time ever.
The ratings for Q2 2015 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):
- Primetime (Mon-Sun): 1,603,000 total viewers / 301,000 A25-54
- Total Day (Mon-Sun): 974,000 total viewers / 186,000 A25-54
Outnumbered, airing on Noon ET on FNC, was up the most out of all daytime programming: up +27 percent in total viewers and up +26 percent in the demo. Sean Hannity — who has been the first stop for many GOP candidates for president — was up +8 percent in the demo compared to Q2 2014.
