With unprecedented interest in Presidential politics pumping up the numbers by double digits, the nearly 20-year old Fox News is currently in the No. 1 primetime spot for all of cable with 2.2 million viewers. For its most-watched year ever so far, that’s a jump from the No. 5 spot it held at this point in 2015. Now, all cable news nets see a rise in election years, but for Fox News the result is a little sweeter. The Roger Ailes-run channel is second in all of cable primetime for Q2 2016 behind the NBA playoffs-fueled TNT. The latter averaged 2.05 million viewers to FNC’s 1.97 million for the quarter.
That second spot marks a 23% total viewership gain from the same period last year. It also sees the again-dominant Fox News get a 17% rise in the 25-54 demo (352,000) compared with Q2 2015. In overall prime viewership, Fox News was in third place.

I know why a lot of people watch FOX rather than the others.

FOX is fine, but you really can't beat CNN and MSNBC for ludicrously-slanted, liberal bias and progressive propaganda.

Just watch it for yourself. It's pretty much 24/7. Are you seriously on a conspiracy site while still believing what Fox News tells you? That is irony if I've ever seen it.
Also, are you insinuating that if I can't give an example that is exclusive to Fox News that means it's ok that they do it? You got me! Fox News does it just like any other MSM source, but I guess that fact doesn't phase you because, you know, they support your biased views. Who cares if they're fear mongering? Everyone else does it too so it's ok!
