Fox News Ratings Collapse in Key Demo after Firing Tucker Carlson: ‘Hannity in 14th Place, Behind Joy Reid’

Fox News ratings have collapsed in the key 25-54 age demographic after the shock firing of network star Tucker Carlson.

Carlson’s new show on Twitter gets over 70 million views per episode while Fox Anchor Sean Hannity has fallen behind MSNBC’s Joy Reid in the key demo.

Liberal reporter Glenn Greenwald said: “The 8 pm slot on Fox with Tucker was not only consistently number 1 in the key demo – 25-54 – but routinely had 400,000 viewers or more.

“Without Tucker, it’s crashed to worse-than-MSNBC levels: barely 100,000 people.

“Hannity is in 14th place, behind Joy Reid! A total collapse.”

“It’s so clear Fox’s firing of Tucker was not just financially driven, bereft of the Murdochs’ and Paul Ryan’s ideological goals.

“Firing Tucker destroyed its prime-time ratings.

“There’s no argument Tucker’s twice-a-week Twitter postings compete with Fox.

“They want him silenced.”
