    Credit where its due, Tucker Carlson continues to do well despite cancel culture coming after him full throttle. His show had advertisers pulling out in an effort to get him off the air, but despite all that he drew almost 5 million viewers.

    Never watched his show but thats very impressive.


    • BM

      Kind of makes you wonder if that’s a harbinger of the November election or if it’s just that all the pissed off Republicans congregate to that program.


    • Bruce

      I usually watch his opening statement but will bail at the first commercial…unless he has scheduled a potentially challenging interview. Those, however, are rare because Tucker doesn’t toss softball questions. This episode had Michael Cohen’s recorded conversation with Chris Cuomo. It didn’t reveal anything I didn’t already suspect of this hypocrite. “It was a setup!”


    • 69 Road Runner

      I’ve watched a few episodes of his show but not a lot of them. He’s definitely a pit bull when it comes to an interviewee who tries to be evasive or misleading.


      • Bruce

        Laura Ingraham does the same. One night she said, “If you can’t answer my question, I’ll move on to the next guest.” She’s almost mean but it’s refreshing nowadays.


  2. Tom

    Do you have numbers for the second and third hours of the premiere night of “NewaNation” on WGN?


  3. Augus

    Do you have ‘Republic of Doyle’ S5 finale and S6 premiere ratings? Both aired on Ovation at 3AM and 4AM
