The Young Turks are coming to Fusion.
The millennial-focused network, owned by Univision, said it would launch a 12-week series of one-hour episodes featuring members of “The Young Turks,” a collective of personalities who take a progressive/liberal view of news events and host a spate of streaming-video political programs. In tandem with a group of Fusion reporters, the Turks will travel to college campuses around the country to explore issues of importance to younger voters during key weeks of the current Presidential campaign.
The show will kick off the week of September 5 and will run on cable as well as the company’s digital properties.
“Fusion’s goal is to continue elevating the issues that matter to this diverse, emerging generation of young people. The Young Turks and their distinct, passionate voices will be a valuable addition to our coverage of this unconventional and consequential election cycle,” said Daniel Eilemberg, »

Viewer interest in this year’s Iowa Caucuses races was especially high, according to early ratings returns from last night, with roughly 10.2 million watching one of the three cable news networks in primetime — roughly double the total of four years ago.
Fox News Channel was the most-watched cable newser in primetime, eclipsing network records with 4.46 million viewers for the event, according to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen. It was followed by CNN (3.73 million) and MSNBC (1.97 million), bringing the three-network total to 10.16 million viewers. By comparison, one week earlier the same three networks combined for 5.84 million viewers during primetime.
Four years ago, the cable news networks drew about half the audience as last night (5.14 million). And in 2008, when Barack Obama defeated Hillary Clinton in the Democratic race, the networks combined to draw nearly 6 million in primetime for coverage of the Iowa Caucuses.
