Fox has lost 30% of its viewers this season.
The Wrap reported that last year at this point in the Fall 2019 television season, Fox had an average 2.1 rating among adults 18-49. But to date, Fox has now dropped 30% of its primetime ratings in the key demographic and is averaging a 1.5.

Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy predicted that Newsmax would overtake Fox in the next six months in an interview with Newsweek.
The Fox spiral continues.
Newsmax TV CEO Christopher Ruddy has a bold prediction about his rivalry with Fox News: “We’ll probably overtake them in the next six months in total audience,” he told Newsweek.
Newsmax TV has, indeed, surged in ratings since the president lost his reelection bid to Joe Biden. In the wake of the election, loyal viewers of Fox News searched for more pro-Donald Trump coverage than they were getting at Fox, with the exception of primetime, where Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Tucker Carlson are still largely in the president’s corner.
Fox is hurting.
They shot themselves in the foot by having extremely poor election coverage.
Americans watched Fox because it was reliable, unlike the Mainstream Media. They let everyone down.
On election night Fox News claimed that not only would the Democrats keep the House but that they would gain seats overall.

Of course, that isn’t what has happened:
Democrats, did not, in fact, “expand their majority” in the House. The GOP will net up to 12 new seats.
From election night: “The Fox News Decision Desk can project Democrats will retain control of the house of representatives and expand their majority by at least five seats.” pic.twitter.com/2nKvbXREJE

Remember folks this is the “Conservative” News Network they were telling you about.
Fox News’ election coverage was extremely poor. They weren’t fair and balanced. They weren’t Conservative. They were indistinguishable from the Fake News Media.
