Sean Hannity tonight ended his show with some ratings talk between him and Laura Ingraham.
Hannity teased Laura Ingraham a bit over the Drudge Report featuring an article touting her ratings before talking about how well their network is doing overall.
Ingraham, despite recent controversies surrounding her 10 p.m. show, had a big week in the ratings, managing to beat MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow — who rivals Hannity at 9 p.m. — in the key 25-54 demo for the first time ever. The Ingraham Angle notched 2.7 million total viewers and 556,000 in the demo.
Laura Ingraham complimented Hannity on his show and then he said this:
“We’re really proud of you, congratulations. You know, we can’t do this without this audience. And thank God––you know, we lost three-quarters of Fox primetime, and we’re still killing it, we’re number one, thank God to this audience. And I mean that.”
And indeed, a little over a year after Bill O’Reilly left Fox News, the network continues to dominate cable news ratings.
