FOX News Channel (FNC) host Sean Hannity marked his highest-rated interview ever with Sunday’s President Donald Trump one-on-one sit-down interview during the Super Bowl LIV pregame show, according to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News reported.
During the interview, President Trump warned that the extreme left is poised to take full control of the already left-wing Democrat Party.
Trump also predicted that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is not in full control of her party despite being the majority leader and Speaker.
“I think she’s a very confused, very nervous woman,” Trump said, referring to Pelosi, D-Calif, who reluctantly launched the impeachment proceedings that she put off as long as she could.
“I don’t think she wanted to do this,” Trump added. “I think she really knew what was going to happen, and her worst nightmare has happened. I don’t think she’s gonna be there too long, either. I think that the radical left — and she’s sorta radical left too, by the way — but I think the radical left is gonna take over.”
But Trump also noted that there is a contrary move by good Americans who fear the damage the far left is set to wreck on America.
“There’s a revolution going on in this country, and I mean a positive revolution,” Trump said, noting that unemployment rates have plummeted among minority groups.
The February 2nd interview, which aired ahead of the game between the San Francisco 49’ers and Kansas City Chiefs, earned 10.3 million viewers, with 4.2 million in the 25-54 demo and 3.3 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic, outpacing all broadcast and cable news programs.
Additionally, Hannity topped CBS News anchor Margaret Brennan’s Super Bowl interview with President Trump last year which aired in the same 3:30PM/ET timeslot and netted just over 8 million viewers, with 3.2 million viewers in the 25-54 demo and 2.8 million in the 18-49 demo. Hannity’s interview delivered a double-digit percent increase in all categories versus CBS’ 2019 interview, up 28 percent in viewership, 31 percent in A25-54 and 18 percent in A18-49.
Hannity beat his previous record
Hannity’s previous record in total viewers on FOX News Channel was on January 8, 2019 with 7.1 million viewers. In the demo, his last high occurred on January 19, 2010 with 2.1 million Adults 25-54 tuning into Hannity.
