Fox News Channel's prime-time viewership beats CNN again during Thursday's Julian Castro town hall

Fox News Channel‘s primetime viewership numbers beat out the cable news competition once again on Thursday night.

According to Nielson Media Research’s early numbers, FNC bested CNN numbers even during the network’s own town hall event with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro.

Averaging 2.7 million viewers and nearly 500,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, “The Ingraham Angle” numbers more than quadrupled CNN’s town hall in total viewers and almost tripled CNN in the 25-54 age category. CNN town hall’s brought in 654,000 average viewers and 174,000 in the age range.

FOX NEWS DOMINATES CNN, MSNBC IN WEDNESDAY PRIMETIME RATINGS 

CNN’s latest town hall ranked third in both categories and was down 41% in total viewers and down nearly 50% in the key 25-54 age demo. Thursday night’s special event for Castro also marked the second lowest-rated weekday primetime town hall in cable news history.

It fell behind the viewership of Kirsten Gillibrand’s town hall from April 9th which delivered just over 100,000 among adults 25-54.

In primetime (8 p.m. – 11 p.m. ET), Fox News Channel averaged 3.1 million total viewers and 518,000 in the 25-54 demo, defeating MSNBC and CNN combined in total viewers.

At 9 p.m. ET, “Hannity” brought in nearly 3.5 million viewers while “Tucker Carlson Tonight” delivered nearly 3.1 million viewers at 8 p.m. ET. Both hours on Fox News Channel also drew in over 500,000 in the key 25-54 age range.

Comparatively, at 8 p.m. ET CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360” delivered 886,000 average viewers and 226,000 in the desired age range. While MSNBC’s “All in with Chris Hayes” brought in 1,554,000 average viewers and 233,000 in the age range.

CNN’s April Ryan calls for Sarah Sanders to be fired

Fox News Flash top headlines for April 18

CNN political analyst April Ryan called for the firing of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders on Thursday, claiming Sanders “lied” to the media following the release of the Mueller report.

In May 2017, following the turbulent firing of FBI Director James Comey, Sanders told reporters that “countless” FBI agents had lost confidence in Comey despite one reporter’s assertion that the “vast majority” of them supported his leadership. According to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s office, Sanders told investigators her claim was a “slip of the tongue” and was “in the heat of the moment,” admitting that it was not founded on anything.

Ryan, who is also a White House reporter for the American Urban Radio Networks, blasted the press secretary on Thursday night for “lying” to the American people.

“Not only does she not have any credibility left, she lied,” Ryan told CNN anchor Erin Burnett. “She outright lied and the people, the American people can’t trust her. They can’t trust what’s said from the president’s mouthpiece, spokesperson, from the people’s house. Therefore, she should be let go. She should be fired. End of story. When there is a lack of credibility there, you have to start and start lopping the heads off. It’s ‘Fire Me Thursday’ or ‘Fire Me Good Friday,’ she needs to go.”

The CNN pundit suggested that since President Trump “won’t take the fall” that Sanders might instead.

“Sarah plays a dangerous game in that room… The game is dangerous because she is lying to the American public,” Ryan continued. “Then, on top of all that, she says the press is fake when she’s faking reports from the people’s house. She’s calling us fake? We’ve had colleagues who’ve had to move from their houses because of threats. I have to have security because of being called ‘fake’ and a ‘loser’ and all sorts of things from that White House. It’s time for her to go.”

The White House did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
