A recent report showed that Fox News has blown away all the other broadcast and cable news channels in inauguration ratings.
Fox averaged 8.77 million viewers and 2.19 million viewers during the inauguration Friday, in the key 25-54 age demographic.
The next closest network to Fox’s numbers was NBC, which drew 5.9 million viewers.
President Trump tweeted congratulations to Fox News for its inauguration ratings from his personal account on Tuesday evening, while also criticizing CNN, a station that Trump has slammed constantly for fake and inaccurate news reporting.

At a recent press conference before his inauguration, President Trump blew off a question from CNN reporter, Jim Acosta, and shouted, “Not you. Your organization is terrible. I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news.”
