OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

Fox News has been and continues to be the leader in ratings of all cable news networks. The hosts of its shows are popular and well-known, and fans follow not only the news but the personal adventures of the hosts. One Fox News host had an unfortunate accident while on a skiing holiday. Laura Ingraham is the host of The Ingraham Angle but was taking time off from her job to enjoy some skiing in Colorado with her family when she raced to a fall.

Ingraham recounted her injury, “Well, it started with a fun day of skiing in Colorado,” Ingraham said, noting that toward the end of the day, her teenage sons challenged her to a race down the mountain. “Of course, I took the bait,” Ingraham said.

And that spontaneous race landed her in the hospital with an injury to her knee. Ever the media-minded, however, Ingraham posted an update on the injury and progress to her fans.

Ingraham initially shared a screenshot in late January to her Twitter:

Ingraham provided a social media update to fans after the skiing accident that hospitalized her ultimately resulted in her being off-air for a little while. “I won the race … to the Aspen Hospital ER. As I suspected, I blew out the knee. Two ligaments — the ACL and PCL — a major bummer. I was pretty heartbroken. I immediately knew it was my ACL because I had done my other knee at the same resort 20 years ago.”

“It’s going to be kind of a long road ahead, of rehab, but we’re going to get there. Thanks to everyone out there for your prayers and your concern — I’m going to be OK, I’m doing fine,” Ingraham said.

No stranger to healing, Ingraham has previously waged a private battle with breast cancer saying of that battle, “I have a deep faith and don’t think I could have gotten through it without it. I had a lot of people praying for me. I really felt the power of that prayer. It helped me 100 percent.”

After an absence from her show, Ingraham expects to quickly return to her job as host. However, Ingraham being out of commission for the duration of her recuperation is not denting Fox News’ overall ratings, Conservative Brief reports.

Fox News just got fantastic news about one of its flagship shows, “The Five.” The show has become the most watched show in cable news, averaging a total audience of 3.332 million viewers for the week that ended January 22nd, Nielsen ratings showed, Forbes reported. “After The Five, the highest-rated shows of the week were Tucker Carlson Tonight (3.086 million viewers), Jesse Watters Primetime (2.647 million viewers), Hannity (2.386 million viewers), and Special Report with Bret Baier (2.367 million viewers)—all airing on the Fox News Channel,” the report said.

Forbes reported: “In prime time, Fox News led the cable news networks with an average total audience of 1.996 million viewers—beating CNN and MSNBC combined. Overall, Fox had fully 92 of the 100 highest-rated cable news telecasts for the week. Among viewers 25-54, the demographic group most valued by advertisers, Tucker Carlson Tonight was first with 442,000 viewers, followed by The Five (374,000 viewers), Hannity (303,000 viewers), Jesse Watters Primetime (266,000 viewers) and Special Report with Bret Baier (256,000 viewers).”

In the morning scheduling, “Fox & Friends” crushed its competitors with a total audience of 1.260 million viewers as the MSNBC show “Morning Joe” averaged 760,000 viewers and “CNN This Morning” had its worst week with 331,000 viewers.

And the Fox News show “Gutfeld” continued to crush its competition with 2.010 million viewers, ahead of the ABC show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” which averaged 1.819 million viewers and “The Tonight Show” on NBC hosted by Jimmy Fallon which averaged 1.278 million viewers. “Gutfeld!” has ruled late-night television, averaging 2.1 million viewers through 2022, Nielsen Media Research showed, the Washington Times reported. “The size of that viewing audience bests both NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’ and ABC’s ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ and also consistently trumps such cable rivals as Comedy Central’s ‘The Daily Show’ and HBO’s ‘Last Week Tonight’ and ‘Real Time With Bill Maher,’” the report said.

Even liberal media is touting the charm of “Gutfield”. Vox, known to be more of a liberal news organization, opined that “The biggest comedy show on late-night right now is not on ABC or NBC or CBS or Fox. It’s not on Comedy Central. It’s certainly not streaming. It’s on Fox News, and its name is ‘Gutfeld!’”

Hoping to compete with the success of “Gutfield,” CNN is reportedly working on its own late-night show, examining more progressive candidates for the job. “Brass at the famously progressive news network have reportedly floated names such as Bill Maher, Trevor Noah, Arsenio Hall, and Jon Stewart, as candidates, to offer a nontraditional, late-night-esque take on the day’s news. Fox News has found success with ‘Gutfeld!,’ the late-night comedy show hosted by Greg Gutfeld,” the Daily Mail said.
