Tune In: Original Cable Programming

No. of subscribers: 85 million

Network topper: Roger Ailes

Programming topper: Bill Shine

Top originals: The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity & Colmes, On the Record With Greta Van Susteren, Fox Report With Shepard Smith, Special Report With Brit Hume

The skinny: Fox News Channel rebounded strongly from a ratings slump in 2006 and is now branching out into entertainment in a bid to reach younger viewers. The network recently began airing “The ½ Hour News Hour,” a fake news show with a conservative bent. Weeknights, it started airing “Red Eye,” a latenight talker hosted by former Stuff editor Greg Gutfeld. FNC’s opinion-laden primetime continues to drive the net, which beats all of its cable news competition and makes it a top-10 network in all of cable. The net is preparing its first spinoff, Fox Business Channel, for an autumn launch.
