“With Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly out of the picture, the year-end cable news program rankings look a bit different this year, reports Ad Week, which added, when ranking cable news programming “by total viewers, and by adults 25-54, Fox News tops the year-end charts once again.

“MSNBC and CNN have more of a presence in the A18-49 category.

“As you may have guessed, Fox News is led by Sean Hannity this year. After 57 telecasts in the 9 p.m. hour this year, (the rest were at 10 p.m.), Hannity became 2017’s most-watched cable news program.”

The story also stated that “Fox News had 8 of the 10 most-watched cable news programs for 2017, with Hannity leading the way … But MSNBC’s year-over-year audience growth was a significant story this year. Rachel Maddow, whose program finished No. 12 in total viewers last night, moved up to No. 4 this year, and grew +77 percent. Lawrence O’Donnell was outside of the top 15 last year, but moved up to No. 8 this year, and saw his total audience grow +67 percent.”
