Fox News’ Hannity enjoyed a supreme viewership boost from President Donald Trump’s announcement of his latest pick to join the Supreme Court.
Hannity this Monday drew 5.82 million total viewers, up sharply from its 2Q average (3.4 million) to edge out ABC’s The Bachelorette (5.7 mil) as the night’s most watched program.
From 9:00 to 9:15 pm ET, Fox News drew 6.6 million total viewers. Among broadcast-TV’s coverage of the actual SCOTUS nomination, ABC drew the largest audience (5 mil).
