The week President Donald Trump was acquitted in his impeachment trial was Fox News Channel’s best in the ratings since the weeks he was elected and inaugurated.

The Nielsen company said Fox News averaged 4.27 million viewers in prime time last week, better than any network except for ABC, which televised the Academy Awards, and CBS.

It was the fifth most-watched week ever for Fox’s prime-time schedule, and highest since election week 2016, Nielsen said. The only other times Fox topped that mark came during two weeks in March 2003, during the Iraq War, and the August week in 2015 when the network showed the year’s first Republican debate — the first one Trump participated in.

Measuring the entire day instead of just the evening hours, it was Fox’s best week since January 2017, when Trump took office.

Fox News is Trump’s favorite network, although he’s grumbled when there are some things on the air that aren’t to his liking, and the destination of choice for his supporters, too. Besides his impeachment acquittal last week, Trump delivered a State of the Union address highly regarded by his fans, and the Iowa caucus turned into a dysfunctional mess for Democrats. …

Indatnice. I would prefer that AP panic over OANN having a big ratings spike. But for now, Proverbs 27:2 seems to apply somewhat.

Trump has the nasties in the Democrat party to thank for his re-election, plus all the POSITIVE outcomes that Trump promised.
Imagine, a politician who is keeping his promises.
Whodda thunk?

Fox: Hannity especially has been very good tonight with Senator Graham, Kevin McCarthy, Matt Gaetz, and Sarah Sanders as guests. Laura has been good except that as usual she has had her token Demonrat spokesman on her program.

It has made tonight’s parade of communists tolerable.

I had to turn off Hannity last night. His constant talking over guests, interrupting them, and repeating things over and over became too annoying. Just shut up and let them speak!

“FBN was better. Lou Dobbs had quite the story...”

Yes. Wasn’t that great when Nunes broke the news of Trump pulling the judge’s nomination? Dobbs’ earlier reporting on that show may have given PDJT the info that made him decide to do that.

Dobbs is an annoying interrupter and over-talker, too, like Hannity, but he isn’t AS aggravating.
