Just two months ago, the left was hoping Laura Ingraham’s show would be forced off the air, when far left activist David Hogg called for a boycott of her advertisers. Not only did the boycott not work, Ingraham just had the best month ever.
Cable News Ratings: ‘Ingraham Angle’ Has Best Month to Date, MSNBC Grows in Total Viewers
The Q2 2018 cable news ratings once again have Fox News on top, with “The Ingraham Angle” posting its best month ever in June.
“The Ingraham Angle” averaged 2.654 million viewers and 544,000 in the key adults 25-54 demo. That is the program’s highest-rated month since it launched back in October. The numbers came despite the fact that there were calls for another advertiser boycott of the program, this time over comments made by host Laura Ingraham regarding the separation of children and parents at the U.S. southern border.
“The Ingraham Angle” was also one of the top five cable news programs in both total viewers and the demo. The top five in both measures were, in order:
Total Viewers: “Hannity” (Fox News, 3.368 million), “The Rachel Maddow Show” (MSNBC, 2.752 million), “Tucker Carlson Tonight” (Fox News, 2.697 million), “The Ingraham Angle” (2.654 million), “The Five” (Fox News, 2.233 million)
Adults 25-54: “Hannity” (Fox News, 685,000), “The Rachel Maddow Show” (MSNBC, 559,000), “The Ingraham Angle” (Fox News, 544,000), “Tucker Carlson Tonight” (Fox News, 541,000), “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” (MSNBC, 419,000)
Notice that there are no CNN shows on that list. Rather telling, isn’t it?
