Again, Fox News had the highest ratings for the month. The Five had the most viewers, and Tucker Carlson Tonight had the most viewers in the 25-54 age group.
The network's total-day viewership went up by 4%, and its late-night show Gutfeld! had its best month since it started in April 2021, with 2.19 million people watching.
MSNBC, on the other hand, had a rise in both daytime and evening viewers compared to the same month last year, while all of the other major cable news networks saw a drop in the demo.
The FBI's search of Mar-a-Lago was one of the biggest stories of the month, and Fox News and MSNBC had a lot to say about it.
The most popular new show of the month was Alex Wagner Tonight, which took over Rachel Maddow's 9 PM ET time slot on Tuesdays through Fridays
Wagner's show started on August 16 with 2 million viewers, but after that number dropped, the show ended up with an average of 1.55 million viewers.
That's a little less than the 1.56 million people who watched MSNBC Prime, which filled in for Maddow when she cut back to one night a week earlier this year.
In the 25-54 age group, Alex Wagner Tonight averaged 157,000 viewers, while MSNBC Prime averaged 167,000. Usually, people watch less TV in late
August because they are on vacation before Labor Day. The fall will be a bit of a test, since people are likely to watch more TV because of the
midterm elections. Hannity won the time slot with an average of 2.92 million viewers and 397,000 in the demo.
