Fox News Host Sends Shockwaves With Ratings Achievement

Tucker Carlson, host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Fox News, is smashing the ratings.

The new king of cable news sent shockwaves by becoming the most-watched show among Democrats in the key 25-54 year-old demographic. according to Neilsen/MRI Fusion data.

The 25-54 year old demographic is considered the “key demographic” by commercial broadcasters as it is the most desirable demographic to advertisers given their disposable incomes.

What’s even more shocking is Carlson’s show edged out MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” by receiving 15% higher viewership in the key demographic.

Fox News’ success amongst younger democrats doesn’t end with Tucker Carlson.

According to the Daily Wire:

The data, from the month of October, showed that Carlson pulled in 101,000 viewers who self-identified as Democrats in the 25-54 demographic. MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” and Fox’s “The Five” were tied for second place, each attracting 88,000 viewers in the key demo who self-identified as Democrats. The next two spots are occupied by Sean Hannity, who took in 81,000 young Democrat viewers, and Greg Gutfeld, who pulled 73,000.

In addition to taking three out of the top five spots among Democrats, Fox News’ primetime lineup has a stranglehold on Independents. “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Five,” “Hannity,” “Special Report with Bret Baier,” and “The Ingraham Angle” occupy all five of the top slots among self-identified Independents. All five shows occupy the top five slots for Republicans as well.

This may be indicative of some political shifts taking place that could spill over into the polls come the 2022 mid-term elections.
