Fox TV gambled and lost last night.
They were the only network that didn’t show the Biden Inaugural special from 8 to 10pm featuring Tom Hanks, an array of stars, and a rare appearance by three former presidents. Instead they had “The Masked Dancer” and “Name that Tune.”
And they lost the ratings night. Every other network beat them, handily.
Fox had 2.7 million older viewers for the main 90 minutes, from 8:30 to 10pm.
ABC and NBC had about 4 million apiece. CBS averaged around 3 million.
Numbers aren’t in yet for cable, but MSNBC, CNN, and CNBC should be good, too.
Will Fox continue to make their brand of partisan politics take precedent over common sense? Now their right wing mentality has seeped into the entertainment side of the company. Stockholders, take note!
