Fox News Beats CNN 18 Straight Quarters In A Row
If you're a fan of Fox News, you can point to the fact that its audience is double CNN's in primetime -- 1.38 mil compared to 700,000. If you're a fan of CNN, you can take some small comfort in the fact that both channels are losing viewers, with Fox dropping 11% in ratings versus a year ago and CNN dropping just 5%. In other words, Fox has twice as many viewers but they're losing them twice as fast. Uh, don't get too excited. At that rate, Fox and CNN will be tied...in, oh, five or so years. Fox News' top show is still "The O'Reilly Factor," with 2.08 mil. CNN's only Top Ten show is Larry King at 1.04 mil.
