Former Host Says Fox News Panicking Over 40% Ratings Collapse

“I have friends still there that say they are very, very nervous about it,” says Eric Bolling.

Fox News is in a state of panic over its recent 40% overall ratings collapse, according to former host Eric Bolling.

Bolling, now a Sinclair TV host, explained to young Republicans Turning Point USA’s annual Student Action Summit on Monday that Fox News employees are unsure how to turn their foundering ratings around.


“Here’s what happened guys, let’s be honest with you, I can talk about this, Donald Trump on November 3rd — Fox declared Biden the winner in Arizona. MAGA-world went ballistic, they said ‘I’m not watching Fox News,’ they switched over and they looked and they found Newsmax,” Bolling said.

“Fox lost about 40% of their audience. 40 percent. That’s a big number,” he said to cheers.

“I have friends still there that say they are very, very nervous about it, they’re sucking wind on it and they don’t know how to turn it around,” Bolling said.

Fox News saw its ratings plummet ever since the right-leaning network prematurely called Arizona for Biden on Election Night.

Since then, all of Fox’s top-tier personalities, from Tucker Carlson to Neil Cavuto, saw steep drops in their viewership — with some ratings falling by 50% as viewers shift to Newsmax, OAN, and Infowars.

From Gateway Pundit:

Neil Cavuto drew 2.192 million viewers in August. By November he was attracting only 1.3 million.

The Five also suffered a big loss, going from 3.772 million in August to 2.883 million in November–minus 889,000 viewers.

Bret Baier suffered a significant decline of 1,139,000 –3.256 million in August to 2.117 million in November.

Martha MacCallum fared worse—she shed 50% of her audience, collapsing from 3.201 million to 1.613 million.

Tucker Carlson also has taken a big hit–dropping from 5.719 million in August to 3.444 million in November. That is a drop of 2.275 million.

Sean Hannity’s shining star is flaming out. His viewership plummeted from 6.838 million to 2.839 million. That means almost 4 million people fled his show.

And Laura Ingraham bled out–she dropped from 4.82 million to 2.114. She lost 2.706 viewers.

But despite this alarming drop in ratings, Bolling said they probably wouldn’t move to another network because they already “make a ton of money doing what they do.”

If Fox News hopes to recover its losses, they should first apologize to its viewers, purge all the anti-Trump/Democrat shills like Chris Wallace and Donna Brazile from its programming, and return to a “Fair and Balanced” approach to its reporting.
