Tucker Carlson shatters cable news records

Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” hosted Tucker Carlson, has quickly grown into a fan favorite on the cable news network, which is especially impressive given that it’s only been on the airwaves for a mere four years.

This week, according to The Washington Examiner, Carlson and Fox News received official news that the hard-hitting show smashed an all-time record in cable news programming history by bringing in a staggering average nightly audience of 5.4 million viewers, as Nielsen Media Research data indicated for the month of October. 

The total monthly viewership marks the highest-rated month in cable news history, busting through previous records set by some of the network’s most legendary personalities.

Adding icing to his proverbial ratings cake, Carlson can also claim the title of being the first cable news host in twelve years to bring in 1 million viewers from the highly-coveted 25-54 demographic.

While Carlson is the star of the ratings show at the moment, several of his colleagues and the network itself also claimed record viewership ratings. Host Sean Hannity broke his all-time viewership ratings record since he launched his show in 2009.

Another special record was set by Fox News primetime host Laura Ingraham, who managed to bring in enough viewers to now be known as the “most-watched female host in history,” according to Fox News.

Carlson likely added huge numbers to his record after a highly-anticipated interview with former Hunter Biden associate Tony Bobulinski aired on Tuesday night, in which the whistleblower and former military officer revealed a number of potentially campaign-wrecking details concerning former Vice President Joe Biden’s involvement in a number of his son’s business dealings.

Many social media users praised Carlson for being virtually one of the only mainstream media journalists to investigate the bombshell Hunter Biden email scandal, with conservative comedian James Woods telling his 2.6 million Twitter followers that Carlson deserves a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting.

Carlson, who has never been afraid to ask his guests the most difficult questions, is well-deserving of his tremendous ratings dominance. He should be nothing less than a textbook model for future cable news journalists to follow.

Fox News has my vote…their ratings are justified. They are truly fair and balanced, unlike CNN , CNBC, MSNBC, ABC, NBC and CBS, PBR…the liberal left mob media! The truth does not reside in them. Guess why their ratings are tanking? Because they flat out lie and they hide true news from American viewers…in their pathetic journalistic attempt to protect Joe Biden and the liberal left! They are a shame and a disgrace and do not deserve viewership. The American people know they are lying and their Nonstop Covid hysteria is little on substance and big on inaccurate facts. But the biggest disgrace is their refusing to tell the truth about the story on Biden and his use of political power to make a fortune for his family with his corrupt business ventures with Communist China. They are the jokes of journalism and won’t even ask Biden about his corrupt family dealings! They will continue to have poor ratings and no respect from the American people!

FOX News lets Tucker do his marvelous & honest reporting. Thank goodness!!! All reporting documented & researched which makes him trustworthy. Tucker, along with Hannity & Inghram keep us all informed with each giving different view points of the issues of today. Sad that the other networks just don’t get it. They continue to think we are uninformed & uneducated on important topics. What a mistake on their part. But…thank goodness for Tucker. Yes, he should win the Pulitzer Prize.

The problem I have with Hannity is that he uses the same rants and raves 3-4 nights in a row on his show. Tucker is the best and deserves the award and probably a raise to keep him on FOX. I would hate to have to go to another network in order to watch him.

Tucker Carlson Sean Hannity and Laura Ingram are three of the best news reporters that this country has fox must keep them on because fox is the only new station that tells it like it is and they are three of the best at doing that telling it like it is! We all appreciate you guys being straight with us we all appreciate that the left-wing media are a bunch of idiots and you guys are truly heroes of the news end of the conservative views and everyone’s views you tell it like it is and we love you for it.

Thank you Old Ed! Sean Hannity used to have a really good show. Tucker is much more informative 90%of the time. I also watch some shows in OAN. If I am going to spend my time watching, please give me some new information.

So glad that more people are getting the message and listening to the truth. Lou Dobbs also does a good job as a conservative. MSM just got a huge reality check.

The Liberal News Media are no longer relevant. They don’t report. They lie at every turn and only have themselves to blame when they all come crashing down and end up like a pile of rubbish on a garbage dump hill

I WATCH “TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT” SINCE THE VERY FIRST SHOW. HIS VIEWS ARE THE MOST ACCURATE TAKE OF OUR REALITY. HE NEVER LIES OR MYSTIFIES THE NEWS, AND GIVES HIS ENEMIES A CHANCE TO DEFEND THEIR VIEWS.
TUCKER DESERVES THIS ACCLAMATION AND LIKE JAMES WOOD STATED IN HIS TWITTER, IF THE PULITZER PRICE IS NOT GIVEN TO HIM, THEN THE PULITZER COMMISSION SHOULD BE FIRED!
OUR COUNTRY IS SEVERELY DIVIDED NOWADAYS, AND SOMEONE HAS TO TELL THE TRUTH, SO WE, THE PEOPLE CAN HAVE A RAY OF LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!
BRAVO TUCKER! AND BRAVO FOX NEWS!
