Knowing how Jessie Waters got his start makes it fascinating to see him ascend to the top. Jessie Waters is a brilliant Fox News host who is crushing his competitors.
According to viewership statistics announced this week, two of Jesse Watters’ broadcasts are among the top five cable news programs.
The O’Reilly Factor was where Waters began his media career. His “Watters’ World” segment, which would later become its own program in 2015, was recognized for its man-on-the-street interviews.
Because of the success of Waters World, Waters was given a prime time spot on Fox, and Jessie Waters Prime is now becoming more and more popular. In addition, he co-hosts “the five.”
In this clip about the disastrous Democrat Joe Biden, Watters describes removing the curtain from the Wizard of Oz to reveal who is in charge and then contrasts that iconic footage with Democrat Joe Biden’s actions and behavior. Watters’ branding is witty, entertaining, and hard news at the same time.

According to Jon DOughtery for Conservative Brief,“While Fox News has been dominant for years, in the past several months, the network has pulled even further away from primary competitors MSNBC and CNN, the latter of which has suffered pathetic ratings and scandals throughout 2021 and 2022,” adding:
Watters is definitely part of that success.
The ratings, released on Tuesday, noted that Fox News had four of the top five shows in all of cable, with Watters featured in two of them: The U.S. Open was first, followed by Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Jesse Watters Primetime, and “The Five,” which Watters co-hosts.
FNC averaged 1.4 million total viewers between Aug. 29 and Sept. 4. Meanwhile, Fox News was the only basic cable offering to pass the one-million average viewer mark, making the network the most-watched cable outlet among total viewers for the 35th straight week. ‘The Five’ was the most-watched program during the rating period.
Watters is definitely part of that success.
