Fox News’ Jesse Watters is surpassing the competitors on MSNBC and CNN with more viewers and higher ratings.
Ratings reveal that Fox News is coming out way ahead of CNN and MSNBC during both prime time and in total day numbers (from 6 am to 6 pm).
Mediaite released ratings that show Watters is attracting more viewers than his left-leaning colleagues.
According to the report, 2.815 million viewers tuned in to watch Watters at 7 p.m. ET.
Less than half that number tuned into Joy Reid’s program, “The ReidOut,” with only 883,000.

“The Rachel Maddow Show” eked out a rare win over Fox News’ Sean Hannity in the 8 p.m. timeslot Friday.
However, as pointed out by Mediaite, the numbers did not necessarily bode well for the MSNBC host.
While Maddow edged “Hannity” with 2.378 million viewers to his 2.304 million, the Fox News show won the coveted 25-54 advertising demographic.
This was by no small margin. Whereas Hannity accumulated 265,000 viewers ages 25-54, Maddow came in second with 213,000, Mediaite reported.
During the week of Sept. 5, Fox News averaged 2.017 million prime time viewers and 1.39 million total day, Adweek reported.
For MSNBC, those numbers were about half that: 1.022 million and 712,000, respectively.
CNN performed even worse, netting a mere 696,000 average prime time viewers and 605,000 total day.
