Q2 2014 Ratings: Fox News #1 For 50 Straight Quarters, 150 Straight Months

fox news logoFox News finished its 50th straight quarter and 150th straight month as the top-rated cable news network in June. Despite the milestone, Fox News — like all the cable news networks — was down compared to the same quarter last year, delivering its lowest quarter in the primetime A25-54 demographic in 13 years.

The ratings for Q2 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 1,588,000 total viewers / 265,000 A25-54
  • Total Day Mon-Sun): 940,000 total viewers / 189,000 A25-54

In total day, Fox News was down -20% in total viewers and -21% in the A25-54 demographic compared to Q2 2013; in primetime, the network was down -16% in both ratings measurements. It was FNC’s lowest-rated quarter in the primetime A25-54 demographic since Q2 2001, before 9/11.

All three primetime shows were down compared to Q2 2013. “The O’Reilly Factor” lost -17% in total viewers and -20% in A25-54 viewers, delivering the show’s lowest quarterly demo ratings since Q2 2001. “The Kelly File” was down -5% in total viewers and -15% in the demo compared to the 9pmET timeslot last year, while “Hannity” was down -18% and -16%, respectively, compared to the 10pmET timeslot last year.

“Fox & Friends” (6-9amET) and “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” (7pmET) delivered the lowest A25-54 audience in their timeslots since Q3 2001 and Q2 2001, respectively. Despite that, it was a milestone month for both shows: “F&F” and “OTR,” as well as “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” marked 50 straight quarters as the top-rated shows in their respective time slots (the consecutive quarters for Van Susteren’s show includes two different timeslots, 10pmET and 7pmET).

Bill O’Reilly to Megyn Kelly: ‘I’m Trying to Give You a Compliment, Which Is Always Impossible’

O'Reilly KellyA funny exchange between Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly last night on the “O’Reilly Factor” when the two discussed Kelly’s exclusive interview with former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers.

“Are you feeling jealous about that?” Kelly asked O’Reilly. “You’re much more attractive in many senses than I am, so he’ll talk to you,” O’Reilly responded.

“Yes, it has to do with my attractiveness,” Kelly responded sarcastically. “Are you part of the war on women? You’re gonna get it, O’Reilly.”

“I’m trying to give you a compliment which is always impossible,” O’Reilly responded.

Kelly’s interview with Ayers was not as lighthearted. “You sound like, with respect, Osama bin Laden,” Kelly said to Ayers (part two airs tonight).

Fox News Exec on Megyn Kelly/Dick Cheney Interview: ‘I Think It Shows Who Megyn is’

megyn kelly dick cheney_304In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Fox News’ executive VP of programming Bill Shine praises Megyn Kelly for her recent interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney, where she pressed Cheney on his culpability regarding the Iraq War.

“I think it shows who Megyn is,” says Shine. “She’s a great broadcaster and she’s a great journalist. I think it also shows some of our competition and some of our skeptics what we do over here. I always say a lot of people who don’t like us don’t watch us.”

Shine also addressed Fox’s median viewer skewing older in age. Read more

Bill Ayers to Megyn Kelly: ‘I’ve Never Talked About It and Never Will’

KellyMegyn Kelly sat down with former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers yesterday for an exclusive interview that will air on “The Kelly File” Monday. Last night, she played a preview clip from Ayers’ first-ever Fox News interview.

“I’ve never talked about it, and never will,” Ayers answered on how many domestic bombings he’s personally responsible for (video after the jump).

In the final part of the preview clip, Kelly asks Ayers what it would take for him to bomb America today, then teasing viewers to watch Monday for the answer.

Some viewers took to Twitter to react to Ayers appearing on Fox, and Kelly’s Facebook post with the clip already has close to 400 comments.

Chris Matthews Thinks Megyn Kelly is ‘Great,’ Colbert Calls Her a ‘Left Wing Loon’

Reaction continues to Megyn Kelly‘s interview with Dick Cheney: pundits, comedians and even hosts at rival networks are weighing in on Kelly’s confrontation of the former VP.

“I think Megyn Kelly is great,” Chris Matthews said on “Morning Joe” Thursday (watch after the jump). “I think when she stood up to him, and stood up to Karl Rove on election night, she keeps earning her spurs as a journalist. He thought he was walking into a big kiss.” Matthews also praised the interview on “Hardball” last night, saying Kelly gave Cheney “a wind-up that should have flattened him right from the start.”

The interview also got some play — albeit with a little more snark — on Comedy Central last night:

Bill O’Reilly on ‘Obama Basher,’ ‘Liberals,’ and ‘Anti-Obama Situation’ at Fox News

Bill O’Reilly went up and down the Fox News talent roster last night at New York City’s 92nd Street Y, offering his take on his colleague’s views on President Obama.

“You have Doocy, who’s an Obama basher,” O’Reilly told colleague Geraldo Rivera, who interviewed him. “Then you’re into Shepard Smith, who’s a liberal” (he also labeled Greta Van Susteren liberal). And on the cast of “The Five”: “They don’t like the president so much, but then you have Beckel [Bob] there, and he’s there to stick up for him. It’s not real fair, so I’d say that’s an anti-Obama situation.” O’Reilly credits colleagues Bill Hemmer, Martha MacCallum, Jon Scott, Jenna Lee, Bret Baier, and Megyn Kelly as anchors who lack agendas and aren’t ideologues. And his self-evaluation: “I’m tough on everybody.”

Megyn Kelly to Dick Cheney: ‘History Has Proven That You Got it Wrong’ in Iraq

On “The Kelly File” Wednesday, Megyn Kelly confronted former vice president Dick Cheney about his role in the increased violence and instability in Iraq. Cheney and his daughter Liz penned a Wall Street Journal op-ed yesterday that blamed President Obama for the current situation in the region: “Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” they write.

“Time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well in Iraq, sir,” Kelly said. “You said there was no doubt Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. You said we would be greeted as liberators. You said the Iraq insurgency was in the last throes back in 2005. And you said that after our intervention, extremists would have to ‘rethink their strategy of jihad.’ Now, with almost a trillion dollars spent there, with 4500 American lives lost there, what do you say to those who say you were wrong about so much with the expense of so many?” Watch:
