Now that Robert Mueller has announced that the Trump campaign in no way colluded with the Russian government, Maddow’s show is suffering.
According to Nielsen Media Research “The Rachel Maddow Show” fell to fifth place in total viewers for month of July, behind Fox News’ “Hannity,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “The Ingraham Angle,” and “The Five.” Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Maddow averaged 2,487,000 per night this month, a slight improvement from the month of June in which she averaged 2,450,000. However, Maddow fell from third to fifth as all of Fox News’ cable programs saw their ratings grow at a higher rate. It was the first time since October 2018 that Maddow’s show fell out of the top three.
Maddow also fell to fifth in the crucial 25-54 age demographics, averaging 384,000 viewers. Hannity and Carlson also finished first and second in that category, averaging 527,000 and 519,000 viewers respectively.
Fox News as a whole finished first in total day ratings for the month of July, averaging 1,378,000 total viewers, while CNN and MSNBC both saw their total day ratings decline to 557,000, and 852,000 total viewers, respectively.
Maddow has seen her ratings decline dramatically in the months since the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which did not find evidence that President Donald Trump or members of his campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 election.
Maddow’s ratings have been plummeting since the release of the Mueller report and the recent drop was most likely from Mueller’s testimony which did nothing to help the Democrats narrative. @maddowshow
