“‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ was the most-watched cable news program of the week among both total viewers and the advertiser-coveted demo, averaging 3.2 million total viewers and 505,000 in the demo.”
Despite constant warnings from Democrats and various liberal cable news hosts, FOX News remains on top of the cable news rating game, and it’s not even close.
FOX News has almost always dominated the ratings, but now they have a secret weapon. You may have heard of him.
His name is Tucker Carlson, and he is kicking ass.
Brian Flood reports at FOX News:
‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ helps Fox News beat CNN, MSNBC primetime combined for 45th straight week
Americans flocked to Fox News last week for information and analysis during a jam-packed news cycle as the economy, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, COVID, violence across the nation and all-things politics continue to dominate headlines.
Fox News averaged 1.5 million viewers from May 16-22, thumping all of basic cable as no other network surpassed one-million viewers. ESPN finished second with an average audience of 831,000 while TNT finished third with 788,000 average viewers.
Fox News averaged 2.3 million viewers during the primetime hours of 8-11 p.m., topping all basic cable competitors except for the NBA Playoffs-heavy TNT and ESPN. Fox News crushed other cable news offerings in the category, as MSNBC averaged 910,000 viewers and CNN failed to crack the top ten with a dismal average viewership of only 597,000. It was the 45th consecutive week that Fox News outdrew CNN and MSNBC combined during primetime…

Tucker has come under repeated attack lately from every corner of the establishment media.
Even Carl Cameron, who used to work for FOX News but, like others, lost his mind under Trump, recently talked about jail for Tucker Carlson and others for merely expressing their opinions. Remember, these are the same people who claimed Trump was a fascist authoritarian.

Here’s the terrible news for Democrats and never-Trumpers. Tucker is popular among young viewers.
Don’t take my word for it. The left-leaning outlet Mediaite recently reported:
Cable News Ratings Monday May 16: Tucker Carlson Draws Most Young Viewers in All of Cable News
Fox News’ second-highest rated program in terms of overall viewers, Tucker Carlson Tonight, led all of cable news Monday night in the key 25-54 age demographic.
Carlson brought in 508,000 demo viewers, far surpassing The Five’s 374,000 demo viewers.
The Five had most overall viewers with 3.306 million total viewers, edging out Carlson’s 3.16 million total viewers.
Carlson was so dominant among younger viewers that he more than tripled CNN’s Anderson Cooper in their time slot, who only brought in 162,000 demo viewers. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes landed in third place at 8 p.m. in the demo with 128,000 demo viewers.
If you were wondering, this is precisely why the left is engaged in a non-stop effort to silence Tucker Carlson. He is brilliant, but he is also an excellent communicator who makes the left look bad, which cannot be allowed.
I’ll leave you with this. It’s Tucker’s reaction to Biden’s remarks on the shooting in Texas. It’s brutal, but I challenge anyone to claim Tucker is wrong:
Make no mistake. Tucker is under constant attack because he is right.
If he were truly irrelevant, as some idiots on the left have claimed, he wouldn’t matter to them.DONATE
