FOX ON TOP: Fox News ‘STEAMROLLS’ Competition in May Ratings
Fox News posted staggering ratings and “steamrolled” the competition this May in all time-slots, prompting many media experts to wonder, “What happened to the rise of MSNBC?”
Forbes Magazine weighed-in on the ratings juggernaut this week, publishing an article titled “Fox News Steamrolls Cable News Competition With Big Win In May Ratings,” saying the news network “won everything.”
“What happened to the rise of MSNBC? After showing historic growth–and a few months in 2017 when Rachel Maddow took the title of most-watched host in all of cable news, beating Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity–the just-released results of the May ratings period look very familiar: Fox News won—everything,” writes Forbes.
The new ratings data released by Nielsen Media Research showed Fox extending its consecutive run at number one to a monumental 197 months; beating “every other network in basic cable for 23 months straight.”
“Fox News had 10 of the top 15 shows in cable news, with Sean Hannity taking the title of highest-rated host in cable news,” adds the author.

FLASHBACK: Hear Hannity’s EPIC Election Night REACTION to Trump’s Victory
Exactly one year ago, millions of Americans went to the ballot box and demanded a real change in Washington; shocking the mainstream media and ushering Donald Trump into the White House. Within minutes of the announcement, Sean Hannity called into Fox News Election Headquarters to weigh-in on the political earthquake that just shook the nation’s capital.
“To me this was predictable, but on the other hand this is a modern day political miracle you’re witnessing before your eyes right now. And that is to go up against everybody; all the pundits, all the pollsters, all the prognosticators out there, and defy all the odds,” said Sean. “It’s the American people that have said enough is enough.”
“This is not complicated. What’s happening now is not working. Donald Trump has gone out there and he outworked Hillary Clinton, and he put forward a much better agenda, and America said enough is enough with failed policy,” he added. “Americans saw a guy that was really successful, and really had a dream that America could be a lot better.”
“[Obama] has taken on more debt than any other President before him combined. Americans are looking at their children and grandchildren and are saying, ‘This is immoral, this has to stop,’” Hannity said.
“That is the reason that I felt confident coming into tonight that he had a very good chance, although a difficult path, and he was able to pull it off because the American people cut through the noise… and they said we’re not on the right path,” he added.
