    I don’t think I’ve ever seen the Fox News ratings so low during Primetime.


    • Louis

      I was wondering the same thing. I never watch it so thought maybe since the election was over, maybe their hosts are on vacation and there are subs?


      • JPWalsh

        Unfortunately for Bret Baier, he’s stuck going down with the ship that was hijacked by Chris Wallace. Bret should’ve moderated that first debate. He should’ve put his foot down as he’s 10x the journalist that Wallace is. Sadly, Bret can’t say “Fair, balanced and unafraid” any longer. Time for a new tagline, new network.


    • baja7475

      A lot of their viewers are going to newsmax and oan


    • 69 Road Runner

      I think there’s probably more than a little election fatigue for conservatives after this tumultuous year. And as Baja mentioned, the shifting of FOX News to the left or at least toward the center has made more room for Newsmax and OAN.

    Fox pretty much spit in the eyeball of the people who made it successfull the way Pro Sports spit in their fans eyes and suffered for it. Fox seems to think it it’s to big to fail.
