Fox News may be seeing its cable news dominance coming to an end.

MSNBC and CNN topped FNC for the first time since 2000 last week. According to ratings data, CNN had about 2.8 million viewers per day from Jan. 4-10, with 4.2 million viewers in primetime.

MSNBC had about 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime.

FNC had only 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.

Meanwhile, according to Yahoo Finance, Newsmax set record ratings in primetime. Newsmax, of course, has been propped up as an alternative to Fox News by President Donald J. Trump.

Fox News announced last week a revamp of their daytime programming.

It will be interesting to see if Fox News can bounce back during the early days of Joe Biden’s presidency.
