Where’s CNN?

Down to six, out of the top in all of the categories.

This is FNC’s 22nd consecutive week as the number network in all of cable.

FNC also had the top five cable telecasts among total viewers including airings of Hannity taking the top 4 slots, averaging 3.2 million viewers per telecast last week.

CNN is nowhere to be found, losing across all of the demographics. The network has taken a ton of heat for their unbridled anti-Trump rhetoric under the guise of being a neutral news outlet.
