It’s been an amazing week for Trump. Last Thursday was the first GOP debate, and Americans everywhere ruled that Trump won by a landslide. This is particularly amazing, considering the fact that Fox had gone into the debate prepared to take Trump down.
Though Fox has clearly shown that they are against Trump, they just got a piece of news that means they owe the business mogul a HUGE thank you. According to Mediaite, Fox just had their third-highest rated week in primetime ever thanks to Trump’s antics at the debate.
A whopping 24 million people tuned in to the debate on Thursday, and Fox averaged 4.4 million viewers in primetime for the entire week, making them the most watched cable network in primetime. This was their highest-rated week since 2003 during the height of the Iraq War media coverage.
In addition, Fox scored the most-watched cable telecasts for the week. 10 million people watched Megyn Kelly’s post-debate Kelly File, and 6 million tuned in to Bill O’Reilly’s debate preview.
These numbers mean that Fox owes Trump a HUGE thank you. Without him, none of this would have been possible.
