‘The Five’ Celebrates One Year with Big Gains

“The Five” is celebrating its first birthday today with ratings gains. “The Five” is starting to out-perform the show it replaced: Glenn Beck.

For the month of June, “The Five” is up +14% in Total Viewers and +5% in A25-54 viewers vs. June 2011, Beck’s final month on Fox News. So far, for July “The Five” is averaging 1.83 million Total Viewers and 405,000 A25-54 viewers. That’s up +43% and +46% over the same time period last year. (There was a week between Beck’s finale on June 30 and the launch of The Five on July 11.)

Two weeks ago the Roger Ailes-created show had its best week ever; on June 28 it hit an all-time high with 2.1 million viewers and on July 2 had a demo high with 515,000, making it the #1 show on cable news.
