It is interesting that while some advertisers abandoned Laura Ingraham, it wasn’t widely reported that most of them stayed with Fox, diverting their investment to other shows. My guess is that slowly some, if not all of them will return to Laura’s show. It is popular and highly rated.
Consider this about the prime time line up. Pretty impressive numbers. No wonder Fox is standing by her.
At 9PM/ET, Hannity delivered 3,196,000 in total viewers and 662,000 in the 25-54 demo, topping all of cable news with P2+.
At 8PM/ET, Tucker Carlson Tonight delivered 2,908,000 in total viewers and 586,000 in the demo.
The Ingraham Angle at 10PM/ET garnered 2,487,000 in total viewers and 505,000 in the 25-54 demographic.
At 6PM/ET, Special Report with Bret Baier delivered 2,361,000 in total viewers and 443,000 in the 25-54 demo.
The Story with Martha MacCallum at 7PM/ET averaged 2,175,000 with P2+ and 439,000 in the younger 25-54 demo.
So how about compared to other news channels you ask?
