Home Media Ratings: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Handily Beats Fox News’s Sean Hannity in Head...

And the winner at 9pm is? Drum roll please…

Rachel Maddow.

On Monday night, Maddow ate Sean Hannity’s lunch ratings wise. The MSNBC star rated 2.33 million viewers.

Hannity? Just 1.7 million.

That’s a difference of 600,000 viewers.

Maddow has beaten Hannity in the past, but that was in the throes of the 2020 election when Trump was completely out of control, his lies were pouring in, and Biden was clearly going to win.

This time, it’s different. Hannity’s on the hot seat because of the $787 million Fox News loss to Dominion Voting, as well as rafts of conspiracy theories he’s perpetuated. Hannity also ignores the the daily news subjects, veering off into bewildering fictions.

The other issue is that Hannity has lost his lead in ratings grabber, the other conspiracist, Tucker Carlson. Tucker’s hour has collapsed since he left, reducing Hannity to rubble, so the lead in is wounded. When Hannity hits at 9pm, he’s not cresting in on Tucker’s old numbers.

Fox News is said to be moving Hannity into the 8pm slot now hosted by miscellaneous Fox employees. Will that work for him? He’s in the twilight of his career at this point, so maybe he’ll accept the “family hour” on TV for a year or so until he can gracefully go fishing.

Meantime, CNN has no ratings to speak of since the Trump Town Hall. On Monday while this race was going on, CNN had just 395K viewers at 9pm. The farm report would be a better choice.
