A Surprising Number of Democrats Are Watching Tucker Carlson’s Show

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” was viewed by more Democrats in a key ratings demographic than any other cable news show, according to new Nielsen data.


Is the liberal media so out of touch that Democrats would rather tune in to one of their biggest enemies?


Tucker Carlson’s Fox News talk show was the top cable news program among Democrats age 25-54 in October, beating out even MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” The Wrap reported Tuesday.

Fox News outperformed CNN and MSNBC in both total day and primetime viewership among viewers 25-54 who identify as Democrats:

  • Total day: 42% Fox News, 33% CNN and 25% MSNBC.
  • Primetime: 39% Fox News, 30% CNN and 31%MSNBC.
  • “Tucker Carlson Tonight” was the highest rated program in all of cable news last year, with an average total viewership of 3.214 million.


On Tuesday, Fox News celebrated 20 years as the top-rated cable news network.
