Rachel Maddow Interview with E. Jean Carroll Scores 2.9 Mil Viewers, Brings MSNBC Close to Beating Fox Overall


Rachel Maddow’s interview on Monday night with E. Jean Carroll was a big hit.

Maddow on MSNBC scored 2.9 million viewers, beating Sean Hannity on Fox News by 400,00. Her victory brought MSNBC within 400,000 viewers of beating Fox News overall for the night.

Not bad!

Maddow Mondays are magic in ratings. The whole MSNBC roster rises significantly because of her.

Of course when Maddow asked Carroll how she would spend her $83 million she won from Donald Trump it was a great, and sarcastic, moment.
