Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC was outperformed yet again by an entire group of Fox News shows, this in spite of the Democrat’s push to impeach President Trump. As The Daily Caller reports:
Fox News had the top three highest rated cable news shows for 2019’s third quarter, while MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow had her worst quarter in years.
Sean Hannity had the highest rated news show for the third quarter, averaging 3,276,000 viewers, followed by Tucker Carlson with 3,082,000 viewers, Laura Ingraham with 2,629,000 viewers, and finally Rachel Maddow who averaged 2,518,000 viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. It was Maddow’s lowest-rated quarter since the second quarter of 2016.
Maddow’s September ratings were slightly higher than her third quarter average, bringing in 2,688,000 viewers during the past month, finishing in third place behind Hannity and Carlson, respectively.
Maddow’s third quarter numbers come after Democrats have spent months pursuing an impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump. House Democrats made the impeachment inquiry official last week, following a whistleblower complaint concerning Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Maddows numbers have been crashing ever since Robert Mueller’s report was released in March and was revealed to be an absolute nothingburger.
