That was fast. The far left attacked Laura Ingraham’s show by boycotting her advertisers just a few weeks ago, but they are already returning to her show. Now that she is back on the air, her ratings are going up and that’s very attractive to advertisers.
The Blaze reports:
Here’s what happened to Ingraham’s ratings in first week back. It’s forcing advertisers to return.
Despite facing a massive advertiser boycott and losing more than a dozen sponsors, Fox News host Laura Ingraham retained the top spot in cable news TV’s 10 p.m. ratings battle.
And it’s forcing companies who caved to the liberal outrage mob to return to Ingraham’s show.
What are the details?
According to Mediaite, Ingraham’s show, “The Ingraham Angle,” averaged 2.69 million viewers this week, while her closest competitor, Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC, averaged 2.6 million viewers. “CNN Tonight,” which is hosted by anchor Don Lemon, averaged far less viewers: 1.29 million
However, O’Donnell was able to best Ingraham in the coveted 25-54 demographic by just several tens of thousands of viewers.
It’s a ratings rebound after Ingraham’s rating dipped in the initial days of the advertiser exodus.
This was just another backfire for the far left. Laura will continue doing her show and a few weeks from now, no one will even remember the boycotts.
