Rachel Maddow Dominates Fox News With Huge February Ratings


Rachel Maddow’s domination of Fox News continued in February as she bested Sean Hannity as was the #1 show on cable news.

According to Neilson ratings provided to PoliticusUSA by MSNBC, “MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” was the #1 primetime cable news program in A25-54 for the 3rd straight month in February (including all specials), according to Nielsen. “Maddow” at 9pm averaged 549,000 viewers A25-54 (vs. FOX News’ 526,000 at 9pm and 538,000 at 8pm, and CNN’s 363,000). In total viewers, “Maddow” was #1 at 9pm (including all specials).

In other MSNBC ratings news, “The 11th Hour with Brian Williams was #1 in A25-54 and total viewers at 11pm, topping FOX News and CNN in both demographics for the 3rd month in a row. “The 11th Hour” averaged 327,000 viewers A25-54 (vs. FOX News’ 289,000 and CNN’s 269,000), up +1% over February 2018 (vs. FOX News’ -23% and CNN’s -11%). “The 11th Hour” averaged 1.8M total viewers (vs. FOX News’ 1.4M and CNN’s 828,000), up +22% over February 2018 (vs. FOX News’ -9% and CNN’s +5%). For the 3rd month in a row, “Deadline: White House” at 4pm was #1 in total viewers. “Deadline: White House” averaged 1.7M total viewers (vs. FOX News’ 1.55M and CNN’s 946,000).”

Rachel Maddow Has Pulled Ahead of Fox News

Fox News moved Sean Hannity to 9 PM to be their Maddow momentum killer because the entire Fox News brand is centered around being number one. While Hannity does run close to Maddow, he has not been able to give Fox News the number one show on cable news.

Rachel Maddow has built her audience with her tireless and dogged coverage of the Russia investigation. The first twenty plus minutes of Maddow’s show is the closest thing that cable news has to nightly long-form storytelling.

Maddow delivers a compelling and informative show. Her program also serves as the antidote for the lies and poison that Trump injects into the nation’s discourse.

As Fox News sinks under the weight of Trump failure, The Rachel Maddow Show is soaring by giving the public the knowledge and information that they need.

1. I like Rachel, she is good at explaing things

to those of us who have a hard time comprehending some of the stuff that we may not understand as clearly. She makes it fun to learn even the crap we have to deal with.

3. Has anyone ever noticed that Fox airs commercials at the same time that MSNBC does?

During the commercials on Rachel and Lawrence, if you flip to Fox see what phony crap they’re pushing, you get commercials.

Coincidence? Probably not, given the sinking numbers of Trump State Television. And also their proclivity for concealing truth, a necessary ingredient to keep the Trumptanic afloat.

6. It's that way with just about all networks

I'm a big channel surfer. I've found that no matter what I'm watching when they go to commercials and I change to another channel they're having a commercial too. I think MOST ALL networks do this to make it harder to watch something else.

4. Glad to see Nicole Wallace is also #1 in her time period.

"Deadline: White House" has become one of my favorite political shows and N.W. has become one of my favorite never-Trumpers. She doesn't hold back on her disdain for Trump or what's become of her party.

5. Great, but...

… wow for Nicolle Wallace with 1.7 million. Wouldn't that be #1? Anyway, people are listening to the truth about Trump.

9. I guess they don't count

Those in Australia who catch the show on YouTube. Someone has usually uploaded the full show by about 3pm (the next day, our time) and I have a collection of friends who call in for a cup of tea and a bit of Rachel.
