Tucker Carlson has been hosting a nightly show on Fox News for less than a month and he is already helping the cable news network smash records left and right!
According to Nielsen Media Research, Fox averaged 3,283,000 primetime viewers in November, a whopping 71% increase from November 2015, making November the highest-rated primetime month since 2012.

Fox’s numbers more than doubled the combined totals from CNN and MSNBC — 1,529,000 and 1,335,000 respectively — over the same timeframe.
The network also posted monumental numbers for daytime viewers. Its 1,966,000 average made it Fox’s second-highest rated month for daytime viewers.
FNC notably saw a substantial bump at the 7:00 pm, EST time slot, now occupied by former “Fox & Friends” host and Daily Caller founder, Tucker Carlson.
Since he took over for Greta Van Susteren, Carlson’s ratings have been higher than CNN and MSNBC’s ratings COMBINED! In addition, the Fox News host has made headlines for his brutal takedown of liberals, including an anti-police college student and a flag burning advocate.
Carlson has seen double-digit increases in both viewers and the coveted 25-54 demographic since his show premiered on November 14. In addition, Carlson ended November averaging 2,930,000 viewers, a 40% increase from November 2015 when Van Susteren anchored the 7:00pm time slot.
