Ratings for January 2015 show that for the 13th year in a row Fox News beat its left-wing competition at CNN and MSNBC. Fox is the leader in all areas: total viewers and demo viewers. MSNBC had a terrible January, losing -23% of total viewers and -39% of demo viewers in primetime compared to January of last year. CNN boosted its viewership by double digits but had nowhere to go but up.
CNN’s turn to the political left is obviously draining viewers away from MSNBC. CNN has beat MSNBC for seven consecutive months now.
Despite being blacked out from millions of potential viewers due to a (now resolved) dispute with Dish Network for three weeks in this ratings period of January, Fox News is still king.
