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.
