The newest show on FOX News is ‘Jesse Watters Primetime’ which had its first episode air on Monday of this week.
The show opened to huge ratings.
Watters is still a co-host on The Five as well, meaning he is now on two of the network’s highest rated shows.
The Wrap reports:
‘Jesse Watters Primetime’ Debut Is Fox News’ Highest-Rated Telecast in Time Slot in a Year
Watters’ 7 p.m. debut scored 3.8 million total viewers on Monday
Jesse Watters’ Monday premiere as the new permanent host of Fox News’ 7 p.m. ET hour netted him 3.8 million total viewers — the network’s best ratings in the time slot in more than a year.
In fact, Watters’ debut scored double the viewership for the hour compared to the same day in 2021 and more viewers than every “Fox News Primetime” telecast since the show launched last year with a rotating cast of hosts.
In fact, Watters drew more viewers — including 537,000 in the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54 — than Fox News has gotten at 7 p.m. slot since Jan. 6, 2021, the same day that Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in a deadly riot to protest of the certification of President Joe Biden’s electoral win.
Notably, “Jesse Watters Primetime” got more viewers than ABC’s “The Bachelor.” CNN’s 7 p.m. offering, “Erin Burnett OutFront,” drew 700,000 total average viewers, while MSNBC’s “The ReidOut” netted 1.2 million, giving “Jesse Watters Primetime” a 446% advantage and a 216% advantage over each of them respectively.
Jesse came out swinging against Biden right at the beginning.
