FOX News Sunday had its best year ever in the Washington D.C. market, finishing as the #2 Sunday morning public affairs show in the important market behind well-established leader, NBC’s Meet the Press.
“While it may sound silly that the anchors of these shows fight for the No. 2 spot in Washington, for their newsmaker bookers, it is very important,” writes Bedard. “The reason is simple: Guests most want to be seen in Washington where their friends, enemies, and reporters writing about what they say live.”
FOX News Sunday finished the year as the fourth-ranked Sunday morning public affairs show in national data.
