(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Laura Ingraham is quickly becoming one of the most popular news anchors in the business. While Fox News’ Tucker Carlson continually takes the top spot for viewership in prime time, Ingraham has repeatedly appeared in the top-five most-watched show ratings in all of cable news.
The latest data even showed Ingraham coming second on Thursday night. Ingraham just missed the top spot for the demographic of viewers aged between 25 and 54 – the key demographic for news shows.
Ingraham’s show, The Ingraham Angle, did come first in the 10pm one-hour slot, with 2.19 million viewers. She also won in the key demographics, with 316,000 in the 25-54 demographic, according to data released by Nielsen.
And it’s not like Ingraham came behind left-wing news outlets, either. In terms of overall viewers for the whole night, Ingraham only came behind Tucker Carlson and his show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” He saw 2.85 million people tune in, with 448,000 from the target demographic.
Meanwhile, Rachel Maddow came in third, with 2.52 million viewers and the fourth-highest number of viewers from the target demographic.
The fact that conservative-leaning news shows are dominating in the age of the Biden presidency is extremely telling.
Now that CNN doesn’t have President Donald Trump to complain about every day, the network is finding it harder and harder to manufacture controversies and create news coverage that gets people riled up and angry.
Fox News, meanwhile, appears to be appealing more to conservatives and Trump supporters than the network has over the last six months, recently giving conservative commentator Dan Bongino a slot on the network.
