On Monday, Variety reported that Fox News had once again dominated all comers I the annual ratings, not merely blowing out CNN, MSNBC and HLN, but drawing more viewers than the combined averages of the three other networks. Fox News averaged 1.774 million viewers in primetime; the other three averaged a combined 1.626 million viewers in primetime. Fox finished sixth among all basic cable companies. The addition of Megyn Kelly to primetime has been a boon for Roger Ailes and company, with Kelly up 23% in total viewers in the timeslot.
No wonder CNN, which is struggling to outpace Headline News, is shifting away from news coverage altogether, according to boss Jeff Zucker. Zucker told Capital New York that he wants news coverage that “is just not being so obvious,” instead looking for “an attitude and a take.” Zucker said, “We’re all regurgitating the same information. I want people to say, ‘You know what? That was interesting. I hadn’t thought of that.’ The goal for the next six months is that we need more shows and less newscasts.”
