...the network declined across the board year-over-year and posted its lowest ratings in the A25-54 demographic since August 2001 in both total day and primetime.
The ratings for August 2013 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):
- Primetime (Mon-Sun): 1,543,000 total viewers / 251,000 A25-54
- Total Day Mon-Sun): 968,000 total viewers / 192,000 A25-54
Compared to August 2012, Fox News was down -10% in total viewers and -24% in the A25-54 demographic in total day. In primetime, the network was down -15% and -24%, respectively. The network was down in both total viewers and the A25-54 demographic in every hour of programming from 9am-11pmET, except for “The Five,” which was flat in total viewers and down -25% in the demo.
It is worth noting that as the ratings at Fox News plummet so do the Republican party's poll numbers.
I suppose it is not surprising that as voters abandon the GOP en masse that they also abandon their propaganda outlet.
Things are definitely looking up for the Democrats.
