It was rated number one in ten of the last 11 months. On average, the show attracted 3.4 million viewers with more than 400,000 in the 25-54 demo and 255,000 in the 10-49 demo.
The Five beat every show on CNN and MSNBC in October.
October was a good month for The Fox News Channel in general. It was the top network in cable. Their total day viewers put them in the number one position for the 20th consecutive month.
The network also beat CNN and MSNBC combined with total day and primetime viewers for the 15th consecutive month in the very significant 25-54 demo.
Tucker Carlson Tonight and The Ingraham Angle continue to draw in millions of viewers as well.
According to Fox News:
“At 5 PM/ET, FNC’s late afternoon offering The Five continued as the number one rated show in viewers for the seventh consecutive month and finished first in cable news for the last 10 out of 11 months.”
“The roundtable program averaged 3.4 million viewers, 419,000 with 25-54 demo and 255,000 in the 18-49 demo, outpacing every show on CNN and MSNBC across the board.”
“At 8 PM/ET, Tucker Carlson Tonight continued as the highest-rated program in cable news in the younger 25-54 demo, averaging 3.3 million viewers and 470,000 in the 25-54 demo, as well as 295,000 in the 18-49 category throughout October.”
“Hannity at 9 PM/ET scored over 2.7 million viewers, 344,000 in the 25-54 demo and 206,000 among adults 18-49, achieving the fourth most-watched program in all categories and outpacing the competition on MSNBC and CNN combined.”
This bit of ratings news has likely caught the attention of the Democrat party:
“FNC was also the number one cable news network among Hispanic and Asian households in total day viewers.”
Fox News has reported that their late-night offering, Gutfeld! originally released in May of 2015, is also dominating its time slot.
“Gutfeld! also bested ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! (1,447,000 P2+) and NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (1,358,000 P2+) in total viewers. FNC’s late-night show also swept Comedy Central’s The Daily Show (403,000 P2+, 145,000 A25-54) across the board in total viewers and the younger 25-54 demo.”
With Gutfeld doing actual comedy, it’s not difficult to see how he has attracted so many late-night television viewers.
The Five is a panel talk show with four full-time hosts and a rotating host, usually someone who brings another view to the issues of the day.
They discuss current events, political issues, and pop culture. It premiered in July 2011 and has since had a few different hosts.
The show airs at 5 p.m. eastern time with full-time hosts Greg Gutfeld, Dana Perino, Jesse Watters, and Jeanine Pirro.
