    Fox News led the competition on Monday as coverage of Queen Elizabeth II's funeral in the UK took place largely during the first half of the day. The network pulled in 1.74 million average viewers over the coveted 5am to 1pm hours as they covered the end of her reign and the dazzling funeral procession that followed.

    The televised proceedings of the Queen's state funeral are expected to set smash all prior records and become the most watched live broadcast of all time. More than half the world's population are expected to tune in next week to watch the final chapter of the Second Elizabethan Age draw to a poignant close as the Queen is laid to rest at Westminster Abbey. Live coverage of the historic event will air on BBC One, BBC News and iPlayer throughout the day, while ITV will air the event live on its main channel.  Officials expect Westminster Hall will see almost half a million visitors coming to view the Queen's coffin in person, ahead of the state funeral on Monday. Those who are unable to visit the capital will instead switch on their televisions as they turn to 24hour streaming of the momentous event.  Industry experts have suggested a staggering 4.1 billion viewers could watch the funeral - smashing the previous record of 3.5billion who reportedly watched boxing great Muhammad Ali open the Atlanta Olympics in 1996.

    by Lauren Farrell   Growing up in our house, Election Night was like the Super Bowl. We would stay up late into the night watching the returns. The 2020 election was no different. That night, I watched Donald Trump take state after state with ease. Then I watched as votes started to fluctuate, barely trickled in, and then, with only a handful of states to go, I watched as counting was halted altogether. A sinking feeling crept over me as I witnessed things I had never seen in my life. The media, the Left, and RINOs like to say that these “feelings” about Trump stem from a cult-like devotion to him. It couldn’t possibly be that for years, prior to the election, we observed an unprecedented witch hunt against him. Neither could it be that I, like many others, watched as states halted their counts under the flimsiest of circumstances. It certainly looked odd. Almost two years on, Americans still question—with evidence—whether or not the 2020 election was rigged. But polite people are not supposed to mention it. America,...

    Dear Aunt [REDACTED], Have you been watching the Jan. 6 Committee hearings? I know you still support Donald Trump, and I’m guessing that most Fox News viewers aren’t watching (in no small part because they’ve limited coverage of the hearings). Well, in case you didn’t catch it, you should know the following: Remember that nice young lady I used to appear alongside on CNN before she became Trump’s press secretary? Her name is Kayleigh McEnany, and she testified that during the whole time the Capitol was being ransacked, Trump was just watching the riot on TV. It took him more than three hours before he decided to call off the mob by issuing a video tweet. I know you are a fan of Sean Hannity (though let's be honest, Tucker’s your favorite). Well, we also learned that during the riot, he texted Trump’s Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, urging him to have Trump put out a statement and “ask people to peacefully leave the Capitol.” Hours would pass before that happened. The president’s own son, Donald Trump, Jr., also...
    Getty Thousands of Donald Trump supporters storm the United States Capitol building following a "Stop the Steal" rally on January 06, 2021 in Washington, DC. Nearly 20 million people watched the first day of the Jan. 6 hearings Thursday, June 9, 2022, in which the House select committee televised findings on its investigation into former President Donald Trump’s role in the attack on the U.S. Capitol. The audience watching the first prime-time hearing of the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was larger than expected. About 20 million people tuned in,” NPR reported. Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) said during opening statements that the attack on the U.S. Capitol directly resulted from Trump’s false claims that the election was stolen. “The attack on January 6 was a direct and predictable result of Mr. Trump’s decision to use false claims of election fraud to overturn the election and to cling to power,” Lofgren said during the televised hearing.

    A woman was 'virtually raped' by a stranger in Meta's Horizon Worlds metaverse app while another user 'watched and passed around a bottle of vodka', a new report claims. SumOfUs, a non-profit that campaigns to curb the growing power of corporations, sent a 21-year-old researcher into the virtual world this month. About an hour into using the platform, her avatar was sexually assaulted during a 'disorientating and confusing experience'. The researcher, who is unnamed, said: 'It happened so fast I kind of disassociated. One part of my brain was like wtf is happening, the other part was like this isn't a real body, and another part was like, this is important research.' Speaking to MailOnline, a Meta spokesperson highlighted that the researcher did not have the Personal Boundary feature on – a safety tool that's turned on by default and prevents non-friends from coming within four feet of your avatar. 'In Horizon Worlds, Personal Boundary is default on at almost 4ft for non-friends to make it easier to avoid unwanted interactions,' the spokesperson said. 'We don't recommend turning off the...
    Philip Bump with the Washington Post watched conservative filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza’s 2020 “election fraud” film 2000 Mules and offered a fact check for viewers. The film debuted this past week and has become a popular topic online for conservatives. Bump criticized it for attempting to deceive audiences into believing individuals engaged in a nationwide conspiracy to steal a win from former President Donald Trump. D’Souza has touted the film as making the irrefutable case the election was rigged. Trump has praised the documentary for showing the ballot box “was stuffed, and stuffed like never before.” According to Bump, the film relies on flawed cell phone geolocation technology, asks its audience to take leaps of faith and uses hyperbole to spin a wide web. Central to 2000 Mules’ message is that phone-tracking can be used to locate the movements of people. The technology was displayed in a scene where it was implied to have been used to solve a homicide in Atlanta — when it was not. After D’Souza shows his audience how the tracking technology works, he shows them people who...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Perhaps trying to make sure it really happened, more people watched replays of 80-1 underdog Rich Strike winning the Kentucky Derby than watched it live. NBC said some 36 million people watched the exciting finish of horseracing’s premier event on NBC Sports’ social media accounts, including 11.6 million on TikTok, the most ever achieved for a network sports presentation. That doesn’t account for non-NBC outlets, for which there was no estimate available Tuesday. NBC’s live Derby coverage was seen by an average of 16 million people on the network and Peacock on Saturday. That peaked at 19 million during the actual running of the race, the network said. It was NBC’s most-watched program since the Super Bowl, the Nielsen company said. CBS dominated the ratings in prime-time last week, averaging 4.2 million with “NCIS” as the most popular show. ABC had 3.7 million, NBC had 2.8 million, Fox had 2.1 million, Univision had 1.4 million, Ion Television averaged 970,000 and Telemundo had 900,000 Turner Networks was the most-watched cable network for the week, benefiting from the...
    Jeff Swensen/Getty Images On Friday evening, right-leaning cable network Newsmax beat out CNN in terms of total viewers across prime time, due to former President Donald Trump’s Pennsylvania rally. Newsmax’s coverage of the rally averaged 738,000 total viewers between 8 and 10 p.m., which lifted the network’s total average across prime time to 579,000 viewers. CNN, meanwhile, only averaged a total of 545,000 prime time viewers, with its highest-rated prime time program, Anderson Cooper 360, bringing in some 645,000 total viewers. While Newsmax drew in a large audience to see Trump speak, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson maintained his audience at 8 p.m., bringing in 2.85 million total viewers. Carlson’s show ranked as the second-highest watched program in all of cable news from the day, just behind Fox News’ The Five, which brought in 3.15 million total viewers. Fox News’ decision not to air Trump’s rallies has made headlines before and raised a few eyebrows as some observers questioned whether or not the move indicated a break with Trump. Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy told The Washington Post earlier in the year...

    oh Wednesday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) reacted to Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell saying inflation was going on in the United States prior to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aggression toward Ukraine. McCarthy, on Fox News Channel’s “The Faulkner Focus,” argued inflation “continues to get worse because of the Democratic policy” in which “they attacked” energy independence. “It continues to get worse because of the Democratic policy. You had the Fed chair just now admit it is not about Putin. It started when the Democrats had one-party rule in Washington,” McCarthy emphasized. “The first thing they did was spend $2 trillion. They … had the government pay people not to work, raising the price of what it costs for small businesses to survive. Then you watched their action about crime and others building within the streets. You watched what they did when we were energy independent. They attacked. You know, the strength of the country is not just your military — it is whether you have an economy that’s strong. And going after energy actually made us weaker in the...
    Former President Donald Trump said Thursday on FNC’s “Hannity” that President Joe Biden’s administration was “grossly incompetent.” While discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Trump said, “If I were president, if we have the Trump administration in there like we had tremendous years, tremendous success, economy, energy independence, all of the things, largest tax cuts in the history of our country which helped bring about the greatest economy we have ever had, this would have never ever happened. So when I look at it, and I look at the horrible things taking place, you wouldn’t even believe what is taking place. To have everything on video, because people have cell phones today, so you see all of this, you see most of it in one form or another on video.” He added, “It would have never happened, and it never should have happened. I just watched on your show, I just watched the vice president laughing about the immigration, this horrible situation with the immigration, and I just watched the laugh, and it was almost like the laugh of a madwoman. To be laughing about that. It’s a sad situation. We have people in there that are grossly...
    New York (CNN Business)President Biden's State of the Union address reached more than 33 million people in the United States on Tuesday night, according to preliminary Nielsen ratings.Around the world, Biden's message about the Russian invasion of Ukraine was seen by a far larger total audience, but there is no standardized way to measure viewership across countries and platforms.In just his own country, 33 million people watched Biden's speech across nine different English-language networks, according to overnight ratings.That figure will rise once smaller networks, Spanish-language viewing and out-of-home viewing are all factored in.

Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.The three former Minneapolis police officers who were at the scene when Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd began testifying this week in a federal criminal trial, where they stand accused of violating Floyd’s civil rights. While Chauvin knelt on Floyd’s neck, J. Alexander Kueng, a rookie cop, knelt on Floyd’s back. Another rookie, Thomas Lane, held his legs down. And a third officer, Tou Thao, kept bystanders back. None of them stepped in to stop the killing. Now, two of the former officers are charged with failing to intervene against Chauvin’s unnecessary violence, and all three are charged with failing to provide Floyd proper medical care. Their defense lawyers argue that the Minneapolis Police Department provided inadequate training and taught them to follow orders from their superiors. Chauvin, who was convicted of murder and manslaughter last year,...
    NEW YORK (AP) — An estimated 101.1 million people watched the Los Angeles Rams win the Super Bowl over the Cincinnati Bengals on NBC and Telemundo, up from 2021 and capping a stirring playoff schedule for the NFL. Last year’s game had a television audience of 95.2 million, the lowest since 2006.

NBC said another 11.2 million people streamed this year’s game, putting the total audience at 112.3 million people. The game went down to the wire, like most playoff games this season, and competitiveness usually adds viewers.

    The officer at this point only admits police are "monitoring the protests" happening across Ontario and then adds, "So, there's a protest coming up. I'm simply providing you with information about a peaceful protest, and now I'm leaving. That is all." 'Nice to know that we're being watched' But the resident apparently wanted to nail down exactly what was going on, so she inquired more: "So the OPP are watching what people are doing on Facebook in different groups, whether or not they're commenting, participating, liking, and you guys are now doing service calls to give people information about peaceful protests?" "Yeah," the officer replies. "It's just a proactive measure to make sure you understand your rights about peaceful protesting." The clip concludes with the resident telling the officer, "I'm hoping that you guys aren't gonna waste our tax dollars continuing to do this to everybody, but now it's nice to know that we're being watched."

    A COUPLE were left disappointed when they had to cut their travel plans short so they decided to take control of their adventures and buy a van. Olivia Dickets and Adam Healy bought a run-down mobile home for £5,000 in January 2021. Since then they've worked hard to transform the shabby van into a stunning mobile home, splashing out £10,000 on the works. The camper van now has a kitchen area, a double bed and an impressive sliding window. Olivia, 24, said: "We wanted the van so we could travel freely. "Nothing beats waking up next to a beautiful beach or mountains and being the first ones to see the view that morning while drinking a cup of coffee snuggled up in bed."

    Devin Nunes in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News previewed plans for the company he is heading, Trump Media and Technology Group, which aims to take on Big Tech and establishment media in what he called “the battle of all battles.” He confirmed that the first product to launch will be a social media platform and that the company is looking to launch it by the end of March. “Right now, we’re looking at by the end of the first quarter,” he said, but added, “We’re going to come out when it’s ready to come out.” He said there is a talented team of committed patriots in place building the infrastructure from scratch so that it could not be shut down by any one company. Contrary to some reporting from the mainstream news media, he said, “We have people from every corner of the United States and around the world that want to come work for us.” “There are people that are essentially sick and tired of the Silicon Valley craziness and the left-wing crap going on,” he said.

    Binge-watching TV can significantly raise your risk of suffering blood clots, a major review suggests. British researchers found the risk was about a third higher in adults who spent four or more hours in front of the TV a day, compared to people who watched for two-and-a-half or less. They are now urging people to take half-hour breaks between boxsets to 'stand and stretch' and cut down on snacks.  Bristol University experts also urged Netflix addicts to think about using a stationary bike.  Scientists have known for years that prolonged sitting can raises the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE), which kills thousands of people every year.  Long periods of inactivity lets blood to pool in the extremities, which can then lead to clots. It is for this same reason airplane travellers are advised to move frequently on long-haul flights.  But the new study found that even physically active people were still at more risk of blood clots.  Researchers also warned people who binge on TV tend to eat junk food, which can lead to other conditions such as obesity and...
    The 49ers may have been better than the Cowboys on Sunday, but together they were an unbeatable combination on television, delivering the highest-rated NFL wild card game in seven years. The 49ers’ intense 23-17 victory over Dallas averaged a whopping 41.50 million viewers on networks CBS and Nickelodeon’s kid-friendly “SlimeCast.” That made Sunday’s game the highest-rated TV program on any network since last February’s Super Bowl LV. No wonder why Troy Aikman felt as though he’d been slimed. The FOX analyst was envious of CBS’ crew while he and partner Joe Buck were calling Tampa Bay’s lopsided victory over Philadelphia.

    In response to former President Donald Trump’s statement, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that she hoped Trump “learned something” from watching President Joe Biden’s speech. Ms. Psaki held a briefing with reporters on Thursday just hours after Biden delivered a speech at the Capitol Thursday morning to mark the anniversary of the Capitol insurrection, in which he leveled blistering criticism of Trump. One of the first questions during the briefing was about the lengthy statement Trump issued slamming the president’s speech. Among other things, Trump wrote that “This political theater is all just a distraction for the fact Biden has completely and totally failed.” NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker noted that Trump “did respond to President Biden’s speech and he called it quote, political theater,” and asked “What is your response?” With a smile, Psaki replied, “Well, it looks like he saw the speech,” and cracked, “I guess that’s good news.” She carried the bit through the rest of her response with a sarcastic hope that Trump might “learn something” from the speech: Maybe he learned something about...
    Former Trump White House Press Secretary and Communications Director Stephanie Grisham lit into her former boss, Donald Trump, during a Thursday morning interview on CNN. Grishman, who is now cooperating with the House select committee investigating the January 6 riot, has become a prominent critic of Trump since quitting in protest the day of the attack on the Capitol. CNN anchor John Berman asked Grisham, “Do you know specifically who pleaded with Trump to stop the violence during the attack? We have heard Ivanka [Trump], Kevin McCarthy, who else?” Grisham responded, “I don’t know specifically. I know Mrs. Trump did not. So there’s that.” She continued, “All I know about that day was that he was in the dining room, gleefully watching on his TV as he often did, ‘look at all of the people fighting for me,’ hitting rewind, watching it again — that’s what I know.” During the interview, Grisham previewed an upcoming meeting she is coordinating with former Trump officials.

    FNC’s Geraldo Rivera said Wednesday on “The Five” that Tuesday’s elections results were not a Republican “tidal wave.” After clips of MSNBC and CNN hosts reacting to the election of Glenn Youngkin as governor, Rivera said, “The commentators, like Democrats generally, are whiny, they are annoying. I watched. I hate-watched CNN, MSNBC. I watch everybody with the sound off. And the other networks were so gloomy. They were so depressed. They had big frowns. And even everything looked blue and black. They were very depressed. This is not that big a deal.” He continued, “In my town, in Cleveland, the young progressive beat the old-line Democrat in the runoff for Cleveland mayor. And Issue 24, which would basically defund cops and create a civilian review board, passed overwhelmingly, despite the opposition from me and my radio show and other people who are more in the middle or to the right. So my point is that this is not the great tidal wave, and these media people are overstating what happened.” Co-host Jesse Watters said, “They rejected defund the police. Long Island Republicans...

    Passengers on board a metro Philadelphia train who filmed a man raping a stranger will not face charges for failing to intervene, prosecutors confirmed on Wednesday - despite widespread outrage at their actions.  Fiston Ngoy, a 35-year-old from the Congo who has been living illegally in the U.S. since 2015, was arrested and charged in the horrifying attack last Wednesday. He is seen on surveillance camera footage on board a Southeastern Pennsylvania Transport Authority (SEPTA) train near the suburb of Upper Darby. Police say that as many as 10 bystanders on the train did nothing but pull out their phones to film as Ngoy sexually assaulted the stranger shortly after 9.15pm. The attack continued until 9.52pm, when an off-duty transit worker eventually called 911.   'It's still an open investigation, but there is no expectation at this time that we will charge passengers,' said Margie McAboy, spokeswoman for the Delaware County District Attorney's office. District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer said prosecutors want witnesses to come forward, rather than fearing prosecution. 'Pennsylvania law does not allow for the prosecution of a passenger who...
    NEW YORK -- Scientists temporarily attached a pig's kidney to a human body and watched it begin to work, a small step in the decades-long quest to one day use animal organs for life-saving transplants.Pigs have been the most recent research focus to address the organ shortage, but among the hurdles: A sugar in pig cells, foreign to the human body, causes immediate organ rejection. The kidney for this experiment came from a gene-edited animal, engineered to eliminate that sugar and avoid an immune system attack.Surgeons attached the pig kidney to a pair of large blood vessels outside the body of a deceased recipient so they could observe it for two days. The kidney did what it was supposed to do - filter waste and produce urine - and didn't trigger rejection."It had absolutely normal function," said Dr. Robert Montgomery, who led the surgical team last month at NYU Langone Health. "It didn't have this immediate rejection that we have worried about."This research is "a significant step," said Dr. Andrew Adams of the University of Minnesota Medical School, who was...

    Lincoln Project founder Steve Schmidt said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “The Beat” that MAGA people had “opted out of reality” regarding denial of the January 6 Capitol riot. Melber said, “You have, of course, a schizophrenic defense of January 6. Bannon and these folks are saying it was fine, in essence. Then you’ve got other folks saying maybe it was bad, but it wasn’t caused by Trump MAGA people, which is a type of lie or propaganda that matters.” Schmidt said, “Well, we have a large segment of the country that has opted out of reality, and the number is too high, and we have to deal with the problem and get as many of them back to the reality side of the line over time. But right now, a majority of the country is, in fact, not insane, and we watched it play out. We watched Trump incite it. We watched Trump lie about the results of the election. We watched Republicans after it condemn it before they forgot it and before they became complicit in the whitewashing.” He continued,...

    Watching wintry films such as Frozen may make people crave junk food, scientists say.  A study found adults who watched a clip of a snowy forest had a greater preference for calorific food than those who viewed a summer-themed video.  The experts claim chilly imagery may stimulate an evolutionary instinct that humans developed to avoid starving in winter.   Many animals eat more than they need to in the lead-up to winter, so their body can survive on fewer meals when hunting is difficult.   Icelandic researchers who led the study said Coca-Cola may have unintentionally benefitted from the biological response with its famous Christmas advert. They have called for future adverts to avoid using wintry cues. The 2013 film Frozen is one of the most successful of all time and is set in winter The BBC series The North Water is set around a whaling expedition to the Arctic, containing lots of scenes of ice In the study published in the journal Food Quality and Preference, the team from Reykjavik University asked hundreds of participants to watch either a video of a snow-filled forest...

    NEW YORK (AP) — The Emmys accomplished what is becoming a rarity for awards shows these days, by actually increasing its viewership over the previous years. The Nielsen company estimated that 7.4 million people watched Sunday night’s show, where the comedy “Ted Lasso” and streaming service Netflix were the big winners. That’s up from the 6.1 million people who watched a ceremony sharply curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic last year. The previous year, 6.9 million people watched the show that celebrates television programming. CBS estimates the viewership number should increase slightly when Nielsen’s count of people who watched outside of their homes is included. Those numbers weren’t immediately available on Monday. Awards shows of all types have struggled in the ratings the past couple of years, victims of television’s trend toward streaming and viewers deciding what they want to watch and when. Streaming services were celebrated at the Emmys, where Netflix tied a record for most individual awards in a year, helped primarily by “The Crown” and “The Queen’s Gambit.” The comedy “Ted Lasso” is on the Apple TV+ service....
    Family members of one of the 3,000 victims who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks are still wondering 20 years later when a verdict will be determined in the case of accused 9/11 planner Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Don Arias watched the beginning of Mohammed's trial from behind a thick pane of glass with his sister in 2009 at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. He remembers attorneys arguing over whether the accused terrorist received the cushion he requested for a bus ride from prison to the courthouse, he told Fox News. 9/11 MASTERMIND, 4 OTHER GUANTANAMO BAY DETAINEES SEEN SMILING DURING FIRST GROUP COURT APPEARANCE IN 500 DAYS "They started arguing about a cushion," Arias recalled. "Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's lawyer said that he had asked for a cushion for the van ride from the detention center to the courtroom, and he had not received that question. The government said, ‘Yes, he had been provided a cushion,’ and then they went back and forth arguing about a cushion for the van ride. And my sister...
    A defiant President Joe Biden insisted in a Tuesday White House address that his administration was “ready” when Afghanistan’s government collapsed. The “assumption that the Afghan government would be able to hold on for a period of time beyond military drawdown turned out not to be accurate,” Biden noted. “But I still instructed our national security team to prepare for every eventuality, even that one. That is what we did, so we were ready when Afghan security forces — after two decades of fighting for their country, and losing thousands of their own — did not hold on as long as anyone expected.” Biden and his officials at the Pentagon and State Department have faced criticism for the tumultuous extraction of American citizens and military personnel during the country’s fall. Taliban fighters overran the country’s capital of Kabul on August 15, more than two weeks before U.S. forces were scheduled to leave. Around 170 people died during a suicide bombing at the city’s international airport last week, including 13 Americans. And rather than extending Biden August 31 deadline to withdraw, his...
