Amidst the media chaos, fake news, fake ticket buys, and security concerns, the Trump rally in Tulsa broke records once again. 7.7 million total viewers tuned into Fox News During President Trump’s speech at the rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
This was the largest audience that’s Fox News ever recorded on Saturday night
primetime from 8 PM to 11 PM.
Trump’s State of the Union address is the only telecast on Fox News in 2020 to outdraw the 9 p.m. hour of Trump’s speech on Saturday, which averaged 8.2 million total viewers.
As Fox News notes, ESPN could only draw an average 8 million viewers for the NFL draft opening night.
The speech also drew more viewers than MSNBC's most watched Democrat primary debate.
That's not taking into account all the viewership metrics, though. The president's campaign also touts the amount of folks who watched online and through other streaming platforms.
“President Trump’s rally in Tulsa attracted over 4 million unique viewers across all of the campaign’s digital media channels. The live-streamed pre-rally shows drew an audience of more than 2.5 million unique viewers by themselves,” Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement.
You'd never know that, though, if you watch the news or Google it. 8 pages into my Google search and all I could find was how "dangerous" holding a Trump rally was for Tulsa and how "embarrassing" the turnout was for the President and his supporters.
