    Do you have ‘King (Ovation at 8am, 9am and 10am)’ series premiere and ‘Death in Paradise (Ovation at 7pm, 8pm, 9pm and 10pm)’ season six finale, ratings, please? Thanks!

    Wow I never thought I would see CNN smashing Fox News. I am not political, I look at ratings daily for shows I like to check how the are doing and its amazing to see such a swift change in viewers in cable “news” numbers.

    Again. Not making this political at all just astonishing the viewership changes and all.

      The mass indoctrination has been very successful! 😉


    • Scotty

      Not too surprising after Fox News jumped off the Trump train. Lots of Fox viewers have probably looked for alternative options like News Max. In fact, I believe Fox is changing up thier lineup next week, probably looking to recoup some of the losses in viewership they have endured.

    So none from the 0.x5 shows The Chase, LMS, Mr. Mayor and SVU) adjust up?
