Season 1
The Loudest Voice

Critics Consensus

While finely performed and often fascinating, The Loudest Voice's shallow interpretations undermine what could be a powerful indictment of one of media's most infamous figures.

Air date: Jul 14, 2019

With the election of "Barack Hussein Obama," Roger and Fox News Channel find the ultimate enemy, one that will drive Fox's coverage as well as cement their ratings at number one. Fighting to take full editorial control of Fox News, Roger finds himself in conflict with both his boss, Rupert Murdoch, and the Obama Administration. What no one suspects are the hidden depths of Roger's secret world.

Air date: Jul 21, 2019

Roger finds his legacy in Joe Lindsley, a 25-year-old acolyte he hires to be the editor of a newspaper he bought in upstate New York. Turning this once-innocuous local paper into a conservative news source, Roger also achieves his revenge against the Obama White House by promulgating a news story which forces Congress into action against Obama's priorities.

Air date: Jul 28, 2019

Fox News Channel is now the dominant news outlet and Roger is working the levers of his power over his network, over Fox and Friends host Gretchen Carlson who's getting too demanding, over Joe Lindsley who's starting to question his work for Roger, and over Gabe Sherman, an intrepid journalist who's digging ever deeper into Roger's secret world. While Roger is buffeted by these threats, he doesn't see the danger posed by Gretchen Carlson.

Air date: Aug 4, 2019

Gretchen Carlson has been secretly taping Roger's harassment for over a year and is working with Nancy Erika Smith, a brassy New Jersey lawyer specializing in sexual harassment. Roger goes all in to achieve his political end of electing a president, and he's found the perfect candidate in Donald Trump. This causes conflict with Murdoch, who has no desire to publicly support such a divisive figure. But Roger makes a mistake—he fires Gretchen.

Roger loses everything, but Donald Trump wins the presidency.

Critic Reviews for The Loudest Voice Season 1

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (38)

Be sure to check out the outstanding work put in by Russell Crowe as Fox News guru Roger Ailes in this fact-based ripper. The show covers the same ground as the hit film Bombshell, but in much more detail and subtlety.

The result is a primer on one of TV's most influential creators and an excellent showcase for star Russell Crowe that will still leave viewers wanting something more.

Loudest Voice otherwise is riveting at the start and somewhat less so as time marches on. [Russell] Crowe's portrayal of Ailes of course is the major drawing card, and he is nothing if not fully immersed.

What is so disturbing about the series-what is so disturbing about history!-is that it doesn't matter. He still won.

Jul 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Most of the viewers of "The Loudest Voice" are going to know all this already, but the miniseries simply wants to rile them up rather than dig into the story.

Jul 1, 2019 | Full Review…

... More intent on probing the political and sociological impact of Fox News than the ferociously complicated psychology of the man who created it. It's a worthy mission, but it leaves the character at the center of the series at something of a distance.

Dramatic Fox CEO biopic has strong sexual themes, cursing.

The Loudest Voice ensnares you and takes you on a frightening, but entertaining ride. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jan 16, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The path the news channel hurtles down after Barack Obama's election in 2008 is brilliantly depicted, including the decision to focus on what is "newsworthy" as much as what is "news."

No one can spit like Russell Crowe.

Sep 16, 2019 | Full Review…

It isn't perfect, but in an age when actual news cannot be relied upon for the truth, a show about the fall of journalism ironically paints a more accurate portrait of our times.

Aug 12, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The series tells a powerful story and tells it wonderfully, full of exceptional performances and smart writing that shows some voices can truly be louder than others when combined.
