Fox News’ Tucker Carlson dominated the ratings once again even at one in the morning.

‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ normally airs at 8 p.m. ET where he blows the competition out of the water with a shattering 424,000 viewers within the key adult demographic of 25 to 54 on December 14. For overall viewers, Tucker attracted 3,045,000 viewers. In comparison, other shows that aired at the time on competition networks just couldn’t keep up. 

CNN’s ‘Anderson Cooper 360’ averaged only 171,000 viewers in the 25 to 54 range and MSNBC’s ‘All in With Chris Hayes’ garnered only 147,000 viewers within the key demographic. Overall, the two 8 p.m. ET shows received only 709,000 and 1,436,000 viewers respectively, according to TV Newser.

Despite the record-shattering numbers from Carlson in his normal 8 p.m. primetime slot, even his reruns, which come on at 1 a.m. ET is eviscerating the competition.

Carlson’s 1 a.m. repeat show attracts an audience of 751,000 on average which puts him ahead of the majority of what CNN has to offer except for shows like ‘Anderson Cooper 360’ which has an average audience of 802,000, ‘Erin Burnett Outfront’ which has an audience of 800,000, and ‘The Lead with Jake Tapper’ which has an average viewership of 798,000 according to a report from Nielson Media Research, per The Daily Wire.


While Carlson is beaten out in his overall rerun numbers by a handful of primetime shows, the Fox host’s numbers in the key demographic are even better. Carlson racks up 154,000 viewers from 25 to 54 in the 1 a.m. time slot which gives him the lead over every CNN show but Cooper’s and Burnett’s shows.

Fox News’ dominance has continued to resonate across the media industry as their yearly numbers have dominated the competition. Fox finished as the number one cable news channel in America for the seventh consecutive year, according to Forbes.

The TV network garnered an average of 2.33 million daily viewers, doubling the competition with MSNBC at 1.208 million viewers and CNN with a paltry 730,000 viewers.

In response to the ever-growing success of the Fox News brand, CEO Suzanne Scott released the following statement: “From America’s choice on election night to the home of late night’s smash hit show, 2022 was a testament to our unmatched skill in delivering the most innovative news and opinion programming to our audience which continues to rank as the most politically diverse in cable news. I am beyond proud of our entire team’s incredible achievements this year.”

With Fox’s dominance in the airwaves, it is clear that conservative media is dominating their left-wing counterparts. Fox News should be proud. Now all conservatives need to do is translate their media victories into electoral ones.
