President Donald Trump Rally Gives Fox News Largest Saturday Night Audience Ever

President Donald Trump’s rally on Saturday in Tulsa Oklahoma set record ratings. Fox News says the 7.7 million viewers from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m ET made it the most-watched Saturday in the network’s history during that time period.

“Trump’s State of the Union address is the only telecast on Fox News in 2020 to outdraw the 9 p.m. hour of Trump’s speech on Saturday, which averaged 8.2 million total viewers.

By comparison, ESPN’s coverage of the NFL Draft’s opening night averaged 8 million, MSNBC’s most-watched Democratic primary debate averaged 7.7 million and CNN’s most-watched Democratic primary debate averaged 7.4 million.”

The rally in Tulsa also attracted over 4 million unique viewers across all of the campaign’s digital media channels.

Trump gave the news channel a boost earlier in the week, as well. On Wednesday, his appearance on Hannity drew 4.5 million viewers, which led all of cable news,

It’s worth noting, the attendance was lower than expected at the rally. The New York Times reported this came as a surprise to Trump and his staff members.
