The results are in: Fox News absolutely clobbered the rest of the liberal networks in the ratings for President Trump’s State of the Union speech last night.
Here’s what that means – more Americans saw President Trump on a fair network than any of the fake news media channels. And more importantly, the snide anchors and stacked panels of CNN and MSNBC didn’t get a chance to poison the viewpoint of ordinary Americans who tuned in to hear from the President.
According to data from Nielsen, Fox News absolutely throttled the competition on Tuesday night. The network posted a staggering audience of 11.55 million total viewers, with 2.67 million of those falling in the advertiser-coveted adults 25-54 demographic.
And Fox didn’t just dominate MSNBC and CNN – they also destroyed the ratings of the major networks.
How dominant was Fox News? They came close to besting the big three broadcast networks combined. NBC was tops in that bracket, posting an overall audience of 4.8 million, with 1.65 million falling in the key demo. CBS was next in total viewers with 4.66 million, but fourth in the demo with 1.03 million. FOX actually placed second among the broadcast nets in the 25-54 subset with 1.49 million. ABC came in third with 1.09 million — to go with their total audience of 4.12 million.
Fox News doesn’t always get it right. But they still are more likely than any other network to allow the President to speak directly to the American people, with no misleading and partisan attacks.
It was a good night for America.
