Fox News Channel's "Tucker Carlson Tonight" program averaged 5.4 million nightly viewers in October, setting a new record for cable news ratings.

Fox's "Hannity" came in second for cable news ratings with an average of 5.1 million viewers on his nightly show. Fox programs "The Five" and "The Ingraham Angle" finished third and fourth in ratings respectively.

CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" finished in 16th place behind nine of its own programs. Fox News has reportedly beaten CNN and MSNBC in both day and primetime viewership for 226 consecutive months.

Fox also took pride in the fact that its lineup beat out popular shows such as ABC's "The Bachelorette," which saw only 4.1 million viewers in its second episode of the season last week.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow came in fifth for ratings among cable news programs with 3.7 million average daily viewers.

Fox also reported that Carlson and Hannity's programs scored high among the 25-54 age group, with an average of 1,003,000 and 982,000 viewers in this key demographic respectively.

🔦 In the month of October, Fox News was the only national cable news outlet to dedicate coverage to the ongoing bombshell reports on the Biden family in the lead up to the 2020 election.
