Fox News star Tucker Carlson just broke a new record.
Carlson posted the “most-watched month of any program in the history of cable news”, according to A.J. Katz from TVNewser.
Carlson, who hosts Tucker Carlson Tonight, during the 8 PM hour had 5.3 million viewers.
His show was so successful its viewership even surpassed CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell in the key 25-54 demographic. This is the first time since the program’s launch that it reached that feat.
According to a press release from the network, Carlson isn’t the only one carrying his weight at Fox.
The network finished October as the “most-watched” cable network in both total day and primetime total viewers and experienced its highest-rated October in history which marked the 10th consecutive month the network finished number one in all of cable in total primetime viewers.
Obviously, Fox News has been helped by the upcoming election, and last evening’s exclusive appearance of Hunter Biden’s ex-business partner Tony Bobulinski on Carlson’s show last evening didn’t help either.
Bobulinski – a veteran of the United States Navy– stated he met with then-Vice President Joe Biden twice. During his appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight said Biden will be “compromised” (Daily Caller News Foundation):
“I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised,” Bobulinski said.
“I just don’t see, given the history here in the facts, how Joe can’t be influenced in some manner based on the history that they have,” Bobulinski said. “So as a citizen and an American taxpayer, I’m very, very concerned.”
Bobulinski explained how he met with Joe Biden in Los Angeles on May 2, 2017, at the request of Hunter and his uncle, Jim Biden, to discuss the Biden family dealings at a high level.
“They were sort of wining and dining me and presenting the strength of the Biden family to get me more engaged and want to take on the CEO role” of the joint business venture between the Chinese energy firm CEFC China Energy Co. and Oneida Holdings, a Delaware-based LLC.
