Tucker Carlson Has Highest Rated Quarterly Ratings in Cable News History

Cable news show Tucker Carlson Tonight has huge second quarter ratings that put it in the record books.


Despite several advertisers pulling away, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson has drawn in a record 4.331 million viewers in this second quarter.

This makes his show the number one rated cable news program, and the highest rated quarter for any cable news program in history.

During these times of turmoil and cancel culture, it's great to see the American people are still seeking out the truth.

The pendulum certainly seems to be swinging in favor of Fox News, and that's in spite of the continuous stream of pulled advertisers.

Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson closed out television’s second quarter with one for the record books: his Tucker Carlson Tonight finished the quarter as the highest-rated program in all of cable news for the first time since the show’s launch, delivering an average total audience of 4.331 million viewers. In the process, Carlson broke a record held by his colleague, Sean Hannity, for the highest-rated quarter of any cable news program—ever.

It was a solid quarter for the network, which finished in first place across all of cable television for the first time in the network’s history, beating out all basic cable networks among total viewers and viewers 25-54, the demographic group most valued by national advertisers.

Some of those advertisers announced during the quarter that they would pull advertising from Carlson’s show after remarks the host made about the Black Lives Matter movement, but FNC viewers did not follow suit, instead lifting Tucker Carlson Tonight to a record high, breaking a previous record set in the first quarter of 2020 by FNC’s Hannity.

Tucker Carlson Tonight and Hannity were the only shows to break four million viewers, with Hannity just behind Carlson (4.331 million viewers vs. 4.311 million). Fox News had the five top-rated shows overall, including The Five (3.898 million viewers), Special Report with Bret Baier (3.658 million viewers) and The Ingraham Angle (3.622 million viewers). The same five shows—in the same order—led among viewers in the key demo, with Carlson delivering 791,000 viewers, according to ratings data compiled by Nielsen.

President Donald Trump chimed in with a few thoughts of his own on the ratings war.

With Tucker Carlson riding an all-time high in the ratings, this may very well signify that many Americans aren't falling for the propaganda of the left-wing media anymore.

The democrats continue to push forward with notions that our country is innately broken and hate-filled. 

At the same time, they push for the destruction of monuments and the erasing of American history. 

The more the far-left wing of the media continues to insult the intelligence of their viewers, the more eyes will be opened to the tuth.
