See Jon Stewart Take Over 'Late Show' to Slam Rnc, Trump, Fox News

22 July 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jon Stewart took over the live post-rnc Late Show to unleash his pent-up wrath at Donald Trump, Fox News and the divisive message they're sending America. "I'm not an expert on racial unity but I do believe some of our more vaunted historical leaders in that area did retweet white supremacists less than Trump," Stewart said.

Stewart initially sprang up from behind Colbert's desk to celebrate the ouster of Fox News' Roger Ailes, a longtime nemesis of The Daily Show, but then stuck around and took over hosting duties »

Jon Stewart Ridicules Sean Hannity's Trump Support on Colbert — Watch

21 July 2016 10:41 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Stephen Colbert on Thursday (or early Friday morning depending on your time zone) yielded his show to Jon Stewart. The former Daily Show host took to the Late Show desk (with a clip-on tie!) to weigh in on what he called the hypocrisy of Sean Hannity’s support for Donald Trump after years of chastising President Barack Obama.

13 July 2016 7:24 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Former Miss Alabama 1993 Kalyn Chapman James got grilled for her controversial comments about the Dallas sniper by Sean Hannity Tuesday on his Fox News Channel show. Hannity immediately went on the offensive, kicking off the interview with, “You obviously don’t value human life, do you?” James denied the allegation and elaborated on both her controversial Facebook Live video — in which she called Dallas sniper Micah Xavier Johnson a “martyr” — and her “conflicted” emotions at the time. James said she “absolutely” feels “so sad” for the slain police officers now, and has even interacted with one of their wives via the same. »

Who Would Run Fox News if Roger Ailes Was Forced to Step Down?

11 July 2016 5:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

From the network’s inception, Roger Ailes has been so synonymous with Fox News that it’s hard to imagine the operation running without the seasoned TV programmer and former Republican political adviser at the helm.

But in the wake of the explosive sexual harassment lawsuit filed against Ailes by former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, the question of succession at Fox News has taken on new urgency. Ailes, 76, is the industry’s highest-ranking TV executive to publicly face legal action on sexual harassment allegations, which have prompted an internal review by parent company 21st Century Fox. (Both 21st Century Fox and Fox News declined to comment for this story.)

It’s no secret that Fox News runs as a separate fiefdom within 21st Century Fox. Fox News is a standalone unit run independently from Fox’s other cable interests. Ailes also oversees the Fox Television Stations division that houses Fox’s 28 O&O stations, which »

16 June 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity has a family connection to the Orlando terror attack: His second cousin sold weapons to gunman Omar Mateen. Ed Henson owns the St. Lucie Shooting Center in Port St. Lucie, Fla. Mateen purchased the hand gun and assault rifle used in Sunday’s massacre from the store during two separate visits in early June. “Ed Henson, a highly decorated retired NYPD detective, who was also a 9/11 and Flight 587 first responder, is a second cousin of mine,” Hannity told Adweek’s TVNewser blog.

19 May 2016 8:17 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Donald Trump reminded Fox News viewers on Wednesday night that former President Bill Clinton was once accused of rape. The presumptive Gop nominee escalated his rhetoric against Hillary Clinton’s husband after host Sean Hannity began railing against a recent New York Times article about Trump’s treatment of women. Hannity called the article a “hit piece,” and said three women have “completely debunked” it by going public that they’re “absolutely livid at The New York Times.” Hannity openly pondered if the Times will interview Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey regarding their claims that Bill sexually harassed them. »

Ratings: Fox News Channel Rolls Tuesday on Big Night for Donald Trump

4 May 2016 11:03 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox News Channel was the ratings leader for Tuesday night’s big developments in the Republican presidential primary race, which included Donald Trump’s decisive victory in Indiana and the decision by Ted Cruz to suspend his campaign run.

In a reversal of recent election-night results that saw CNN finish on top in the key news demo of adults 25-54, Fnc won last night during primetime by a rather comfortable 18% margin (1.058 million to 896,000), according to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen. MSNBC remained a distant third (413,000).

And Fox won big in total viewers, with its tune-in (4.273 million) more than the combined totals of CNN (2.622 million) and MSNBC (1.555 million). This was the largest audience for a night of election coverage on any network since Fnc’s coverage of Super Tuesday II on March 15. Fnc even beat out sister broadcast network Fox (1.9 million) as well as ABC (2.9 million).

According to Nielsen estimates, MSNBC’s “Place for Politics” special averaged 400,000 adults 25-54 from 8 to 11 p.m., edging out Fox News Channel (391,000) and also ahead of CNN (340,000).

Fox News Tops All of Cable Viewership for Quarter; CNN Up Triple-Digits in Primetime

29 March 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the presidential primary races heated up, cable news networks scored some big ratings achievements this winter, highlighted by Fox News Channel’s first-ever quarterly total-viewer victory among all cable networks and CNN’s most-watched quarter in seven years. All three cable news networks saw nice spikes, but CNN’s were by far the largest, as the network — buoyed by more debates and town hall events than its rivals —  closed the demo gap with Fox News and pulled away from MSNBC.

The first quarter of 2016 was highlighted by surprisingly strong performances in primary races by Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, the former the Republican front-runner and the latter giving Hillary Clinton a tougher battle than expected on the Democratic side. Both are credited with bringing millions of new voters to this primary season, and some of that heightened interest in the races has clearly resulted in higher ratings across the cable news board. »

2 February 2016 10:00 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Hindsight always offers the best perspective. After coming in second place in Monday night's Iowa caucuses, Donald Trump is admitting that skipping the last Gop debate could have played a part in his results, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "I think it could have been the debate," the billionaire businessman said during a news conference on Tuesday. "I think some people were disappointed I didn't go in the debate."
