Fox News host Tucker Carlson continues to dominate in the ratings, but perhaps surprisingly, the conservative host is drawing the most young viewers in all of cable news.

Despite the best efforts of Democrats and the liberal media to slow the tide, Carlson’s primetime show is leading the way in drawing viewers in the key 25-54 year old demographic.

The numbers, according to Adweek, show Carlson’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” bringing in 508,000 viewers in the coveted demo, easily topping network colleague Laura Ingraham, whose show “The Ingraham Angle” hit 387,000.

Overall, the conservative anchor’s show saw 3.16 million viewers, second only to “The Five” with 3.30 million.

Tucker Carlson Continues to Dominate Ratings in Key Demographic

Just how significantly is Tucker Carlson dominating the ratings in the young viewer demographic? Mediaite describes it thusly:

“Carlson was so dominant among younger viewers that he more than tripled CNN’s Anderson Cooper in their time slot, who only brought in 162,000 demo viewers.”

They add that MSNBC’s Chris Hayes landed in third place in the 25-54 demo with a mere 128,000 demo viewers.

This why the left attacks @TuckerCarlson

“Tucker Carlson Tonight remains the top cable news show among adults 25-54. The program averaged 560,000 viewers from the demo at 8 p.m. in April, and averaged 3.39 million total viewers…”- Adweek

Hayes, meanwhile, continues to demonstrate the only response the left has when it comes to Carlson being the gold standard in media currently – attack him as a racist.

“Lest people think Tucker is doing a shtick for ratings, keep open the possibility he’s just a genuine, heartfelt racist,” Hayes tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

The ‘Tucker is a racist’ diatribe is old and decrepit – much like Hayes’ audience apparently.

Playing the Race Card

Playing the race card has been a staple of the left for what, decades now. It’s all they have as most of America continues to leave the weak effort to label political opponents behind.

Tucker Carlson is dominating the ratings amongst young viewers for a reason, even as liberals try to portray him as evil.

Just this past week, the media swiftly capitalized on the mass shooting at a Buffalo grocery store by Payton Gendron, an 18-year-old, self-described “authoritarian leftist” and “white supremacist,” and tried tying it to Carlson and Fox News.

Carlson has been accused of promoting the so-called “Great Replacement Theory.”

Critics have pounced, suggesting it is about race. The Fox News host has countered that it is about ‘voter’ replacement.

During his Tuesday night broadcast, Carlson continued to argue along those lines and suggested people attacking him over pointing out the obvious are “lunatics.”

Here’s the thing – they are lunatics.

Tucker: “These people are lunatics”

Because Tucker calls them out in devastating and irrefutable fashion, using THEIR own words and video clips, they want to JAIL him.

The Left cannot counter him so instead they want to destroy him.https://t.co/1pkTkmGfwu

Carlson pointed out that the left-wing Center for American Progress “announced that ‘supporting real immigration reform that contains a pathway to citizenship for our nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants is the only way to maintain electoral strength in the future.’”

“Oh, great replacement theory, anyone?” he scoffed. “These people are lunatics. They are telling you what their strategy is. When you note it, they scream at you and call you a criminal.”

Young viewers clearly aren’t buying it. The kids, as they say, are alright.
