Fox TV Network Ratings Sink after Tucker Leaves
Since the ouster of Tucker Carlson, Fox News' ratings have plummeted. The demo ratings (based on viewers aged 25-54) released yesterday from Tuesday night reveal every show on Fox from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. significantly dropped in numbers. "The Five" was down 7 percent, Brett Baier's "Special Report" was down 23 percent, "Jesse Watters Primetime" was down 35 percent, "Hannity" was down 44 percent, and "The Ingraham Angle" was down 20 percent.
Carlson's old 8 p.m. time slot was hit the hardest - down nearly 70 percent compared to last Tuesday.
And it's not just ratings that have been hurting at Fox. Within minutes of Carlson's unceremonious departure, Fox Corporation lost $1 billion in stock value........
The staggering views (Note: Public Advocate reported 60 million views) on Tucker's latest Twitter video are a strong indication that whatever his plans are next, there is a dedicated audience ready to follow him.
Many conservatives have become wildly disillusioned with Fox by Tucker's removal from the network. Arguably the most influential leader of the new right was ejected from his prime-time television slot with what appears to have been no warning and poor reasoning..............
