“The Five” on Fox News has reached a historic milestone.
The show has been the most-watched cable news program for four straight quarters. This is the first time ever for any non-primetime cable news show.
“The Five” averaged 3.3 million viewers for the quarter, according to Nielsen Media Research data.
This doesn’t come as a huge surprise. Critics claim that most cable news networks are simply pushing the left-wing political agenda of the Biden administration while Fox News is doing actual journalism.
Fox News led all cable competitors in the third quarter.
This is the sixth straight quarter in which Fox News has outperformed everyone else in cable news.

The roundtable discussion show, whose regular hosts include Greg Gutfeld, Dana Perino, Jesse Watters and Jeanine Pirro, airs weekdays at 5 p.m.
According to Deadline, the quarter saw an overall slump in cable news viewership. For example, Fox News’ third-quarter average of 2.19 primetime viewers was down 8 percent, while CNN’s average of 717,000 was down 13 percent.
The overall slump was more pronounced in the 25-54 age group, where Fox was down 23 percent, CNN was down 21 percent and MSNBC was down 22 percent.
