sourceThe demographics were even worse: CNN lost 13% of its primetime 25-54 year olds, while Fox was up 47%. MSNBC was down 7%. In 18-49s, Fox gained 42%, CNN lost 16% and MSNBC lost 11%. Fox gains may be attributed the red meat that anti-healthcare conservatives are throwing into the pit, or by the enormous success of Glen Beck, who joined Fox this year.
Total day demographics were scarcely better: Fox was up 38% in 25-54 year olds, CNN was down 1%, and MSNBC lost 29%. In 18-49s, Fox was 32% up, CNN 3% down, and MSNBC 23% down.
That's what happens when you pull "suspicions" out of your arse.

SourceFox News has pulled off another dominant quarter, claiming the top 10 cable news programs in 3Q 2009 and growing against 3Q 2008, while CNN and MSNBC lost substantial portions of their election-boom audience.
Fox News averaged 2.25 million total viewers in prime time for the third quarter, up 2% over the previous year. That's more than CNN (946,000, down 30%) and MSNBC (788,000, down 10%) combined.
"The O'Reilly Factor" led all cable news programs with an average of 3.295 million total viewers for the quarter, up 12% over the previous year. "Hannity" (2.603 million, up 9%), "Glenn Beck" (2.403 million, up 89%), "On the Record with Greta van Susteren" (2.150 million, up 16%), and "Special Report with Bret Baier" (1.997 million, up 20%) rounded out the top five.
Go to the source if you want to see a breakdown of the numbers, but it ain't pretty if you're a Fox News hater. O'Reilly reruns at 11:00 beat the highest rated show on any other cable news network.
