Fox News Channel’s Revised Evening Lineup Hits Ratings Highs

'The O'Reilly Factor,' 'The Kelly File' have best showings yet as the net tops its rivals combined

Fox News Channel’s revamped evening lineup continues to perform very well, hitting new ratings highs on Tuesday and beating the combined tallies of its rivals.

According to Nielsen estimates, the 7 to 11 p.m. programming on FNC averaged a best-yet 2.35 million viewers — about double the combined tune-in of MSNBC (941,000) and CNN (397,000) in the same time frame. Fox News dominated too in the key news demo of adults 25-54 (454,000), well ahead of MSNBC (214,000) and CNN (134,000).

And from 8 to 11 p.m., FNC outdrew MSNBC, CNN and HLN combined (479,000 to 423,000).

Program highlights included the best averages since the revamped lineup began earlier this month for “The O’Reilly Factor” (3.22 million) and “The Kelly File” (2.83 million), the new series fronted by Megyn Kelly. “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren had its second largest audience yet at 7 p.m. (1.99 million), as did “Hannity” in its new 10 p.m. home (2.08 million).
