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).

    WORD’s OUT!

    FOX is as CFR ‘on board’ and compromised
    as Ted Turner’s CIA front CNN —or state subsidized NBC.

    ALEX JONES is NOW —the— PRESS.

    ALLLL else is Tavistock.

    More indication the nation is getting wise to the filtered bias from CNN and MSNBC. Yeah, Fox has a point of view, and Americans seem to agree.

  3. The evening line up is great. All four (4) in the order they are in, were good choices. I like everyone of them, have watched two of them for a long time, Sean and Bill. Like Greta on the time she is now on. I can watch while cleaning up in the kitchen after dinner. I can listen and watch at the same time. Use to miss her before. Good luck to Fox. Great News and information station. It has class and good standards. It is Honest. A true American station. Good Luck to All and God Bless Everyone.
