President Trumps rally on Saturday attracted a record-setting audience on TV despite the smaller-than-expected crowd in attendance at the Tulsa, Okla., event.
A whopping 7.7 million total viewers tuned into Fox News from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT during Trumps remarks, making it the most watched Saturday in the networks history during that time period, according to early Nielsen data.
Trumps rally also gave Fox News its largest Saturday night primetime audience ever from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Trumps State of the Union address is the only telecast on Fox News in 2020 to outdraw the 9 p.m. hour of Trumps speech on Saturday, which averaged 8.2 million total viewers.
By comparison, ESPNs coverage of the NFL Drafts opening night averaged 8 million, MSNBCs most-watched Democratic primary debate averaged 7.7 million and CNNs most-watched Democratic primary debate averaged 7.4 million.
The Trump campaign has stated that even more viewers tuned in when including the significant audience that watched via streaming platforms.
President Trumps rally in Tulsa attracted over 4 million unique viewers across all of the campaigns digital media channels. The live-streamed pre-rally shows drew an audience of more than 2.5 million unique viewers by themselves, Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement.
Fox News YouTube stream picked up over 2.1 million views, while Fox Business Networks livestream drew over 580,000. The rally was streamed on a variety of other platforms, as well.
Liberal pundits have labeled the rally a disappointment because of the in-person attendance figures but the Trump campaign disagrees.

In your face, THC!
Did y’all see on FNC this morning when normally calm Steve Doocey went ballistic on the rally being held inside instead of outside?
But, Biden is still ahead by 10 points! *SNORT*
KAG! Trump. Landslide. 2020.
Pfffttttt! Wait until the Rip VanBiden selects contestant rice to be the vp pick. They’ll have a 120 times the viewers. Yeah, do I need the /s?
That is nothing. Chris Wallace destroyed Mercedes Schlapp, Trump campaign PR person, over the rally attendance by mercilessly mocking her.
Is Fox reporting this? I watched on C-span. They kept showing empty seats and would pan attendees who looked bored. They probably used shots taken earlier in the day.
“””Did yall see on FNC this morning “”””””
No, Jim. I stopped watching those drama queens months ago.
Are they still hiding in their basements?
Trump Rallies are a HUGE can of WHOOP ASS on the LIEberal/Socialist/Marxist/Fascist/Communist Democrats who are working overtime to destroy the greatest Americans President EVER!
They are also working overtime to destroy the greatest country EVER on the face of the earth!
WE MUST STAND STRONG AGAINST AND DEFEAT THEM!
So over 10 MILLION watched what the media calls a failed rally - that’s rich.
[[’No Evidence’ Black Lives Matter Protests Caused COVID-19 Spike: Study]]
“As days of protest raged over police brutality against black people,”
Pssst- NewsWeek- only 2 unarmed black people were killed unjustifiably all of last year by police- and those 2 incidents the police were sentenced and convicted- Where is you ‘systemic deadly racism in the police force’?- If there’s any ‘systemic racism’ it’s the black folks murdering police officers- 54 officers were murdered last year- Your whole’ Systemic Racism in hte police force’ is a lie and you all know it and should be ashamed of yourselves for hyping race tensions that aren’t there and causing 1000’s of lives to be upset, destroyed, ruined by blm and antifa! Shame on You!-
—————But by golly, according to the left, everyone’s gonna get the virus if they attend a Trump Rally-
nope- they are likely all marching with blm in their offtime-
They did it without us. FOX has a track record of interrupting events to analyze what the event is about. We think we are smart enough to figure it out ourselves so we go to OANN where we can watch uninterrupted.
I cant wait for Trump to drop paratroopers inside the CHOP/CHAZ
Steve Doocy should just come out as Karen.
I do not watch or listen to Faux News.
I saw the speech on RSBN.
Like Stalin said, “How many divisions does he have?”
How many people watch Chris Wallace’s program?
Who needs Chris Wallace when you have a combined 10 million viewers on Fox alone?
How many were watching on OANN?
