Before the Mueller report took the steam out of her favorite “Trump-Russia” collusion narrative, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow was on a ratings rocket, often matching numbers near Sean Hannity.
However, since the Mueller report, it’s been downhill and Maddow has now fallen behind both Hannity and Tucker Carlson by a significant margin.
MSNBC prime time anchor Rachel Maddow’s ratings continued to plummet in May, maintaining a trend that has continued every month in 2019.
Maddow’s show, which has dedicated years to intensive coverage surrounding the Mueller investigation, averaged 2,608,000 viewers per night with 410,000 in the key 25-54 age demographic in May, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Her show came in third for cable news behind Fox News prime time hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. Hannity’s average audience was 3,138,000, with Carlson’s coming in at 2,761,000. The Five and The Ingraham Angle rounded out the top five.
