While pretty much everyone ever was glued to their respective television screens, watching the miners being pulled from the San Jose mine in Chile, it appears that most had their channels turned to Fox News!

The network's live coverage, from 8:16pm - 9pm and hosted by Shepard Smith, garnered over 7 million viewers!

Impressive!

We're just thankful that everyone was safely rescued!

    They're the only network I found that had a live translator. Never so much before did I wish I could speak Spanish. :(

    Almost everyone watches FOX. Even the liberals. Sheppard Smith is a laugh a minute. Great anchor also.

    My whole family was watching this, me and my sister couldn't even sleep . It was great seeing them being rescued , and it was very emotional .Also the President of Chile is awesome, he stayed up all night and greeted them , he seems like a nice man, he kept a smile on his face even though i know he was tired .Super Mario was awesome.Chi Chi Chi Le Le Le!!!

    Seriously, Perez you have to learn HOW to be a decent person! Of all the amazing and wonderful issues surrounding this story - you chose to comment on which news station had the most viewers? That's sick!

    Honestly, I hate FOX, but they were the only ones who had the coverage when I wanted to see it last night. CNN had Michael Moore on with Larry King and the picture of the miner rescue was very small.

    I did switch between CNN & Fox all day though.

    it was so awesome! i was tired of crying when each one was pulled out

    Perez, where have you been? FOX News has been top in all the news ratings by all groups for many years. The alphabet stations (NBC, etc.) with their liberal agenda propaganda has turned off the American people, who have turned to FOX for fair/balanced reporting of the news.

    I'm chilean and i just would like to say how proud i'm of our miners…and also thanks to all the people from United States that saw the rescue and felt happy for the miners and their families. :)

    Fox has it going on.

    I refuse to watch fox news. I HATE FOX News! I watched CNN and was satisfied with what I saw. Fox News can bite me! IDOCRACY is the word!



  14. 14

    It's news now that FOX dominates cable news? Have you seen the other networks? It's no surprise.

    The idiots at fox were probably blaming it all on President Obama somehow. You are a certifiable brain dead ignorant idiot if you watch fox news. CNN had a live video feed on their website with no commercials and no commentators. Fox news viewers should somehow try to grow a brain and realize they're being led around like sheep to a slaughter.

    And to all you fox news worshipers, if they're so great and big as you say then it makes them officially the "Lamestream" media that whore Palin is always bitching about. Fox News = Lamestream now. Enjoy fuckwits!

    it is just a fact cnn covered it more then fox.

    fox at first covered it but after a few were rescued they only went live when one of them got rescued. cnn was there and airing it even when it was boring. during the wait cnn was there.

    FOX NEWS is killin in the ratings. LOL @ the liberal haters~ the only ones who DON'T watch FOX NEWS!!!

    Re: jcrhode – IDIOCRACY is only a few years away!!!

    Re: Red Three – Obviously you are judging something you have never watched which only makes you a bigger a hole. BUT I AM SURE PRESIDENT NOBAMA blamed the miners being stuck on BUSH! That's about the only thing you can rely on him for, the blame game.
