Tucker Carlson took over the 7 PM slot on FOX News just after the election three weeks ago and his show "Tucker Carlson Tonight" is already a ratings juggernaut.
The Daily Caller, which Carlson founded in 2010 but left before starting at FOX News, reports:
'Tucker Carlson Tonight' Gives Fox News Historic Ratings Boost
Fox News just made history.
According to figures from Nielsen Media Research, Fox averaged 3,283,000 primetime, viewers in November — a 71 percent jump from November 2015 — making it 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…
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.
"Tucker Carlson Tonight" premiered on November 14th and has seen double-digit increases in both total viewers and the coveted A25-54 demographic.
Carlson ended the month averaging 2,930,000 viewers, a 40 percent bump from November 2015, when the time slot was occupied by "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren."
It's no wonder why Carlson's show is so popular. He goes after the truth aggressively without being a jerk. He's also funny, insightful and very honest.
FOX Has a new hit on their hands.

Teenagers who watch pornography are more likely to become a sexual predator, research suggests.
Cutting their access to sexually explicit content could prevent them from becoming rapists, scientists claim.
But despite the easy access to pornography, other methods could also help to cut down on sexual abuse cases.
Improving sex education at school and teaching youngsters to respect their future partners could prevent deviant behaviour, experts say.
Researchers from the University of Melbourne asked 14 teenagers what could have been made different in their life to have prevented their sexual abusive behaviour.
Of the participants, three directly attributed their behaviour to their pornography consumption.
While they also highlighted the need to improve sex education as a way to promote respectful relationships.
Researchers also asked six psychologists to reflect on their insights, allowing them to come up with three main prevention techniques.
They were: making home and school relationships safe, reforming sexual education and managing pornography access.
It was found that more knowledge of meaningful relationships could counter the distorted messages they see in pornographic content.
Study author Gemma McKibbin said the findings made it clear that more needed to be done in sexual health policy for youngsters.
She added: ‘The access that young people are having to pornography, as well as our collective “turning a blind eye”, is akin to a kind of cultural grooming of children.’
‘We can’t on the one hand say we don’t want to talk with young children about sexuality, while on the other hand do nothing about the multi-billion-dollar pornography industry and the telecommunications industry that is enabling access.
‘Pornography can’t be seen as the sole responsibility of parents or schools because it has gone way beyond that.
‘We probably need to engage directly with the pornography industry and the telecommunications industry.
‘Consistent, protective sex education needed to be introduced as soon as children started school, if not before.’
Previous studies have shown that about half the victims of child-on-child sexual abuse are under the age of six, while the children who abuse are themselves likely to be aged just 12.
While a study published in JAMA Psychiatry in 2014 found regularly viewing pornography seemed to dull the response to sexual stimulation over time.
And German researchers found men who watch pornography may be shrinking their brains.
The striatum area of the brain, linked with the motivation and reward response, shrank in size the more porn a person viewed.
UK to censor online videos of ‘non-conventional’ sex acts and other sick stuff
Finally! Someone is taking some measures against this filth who has been corrupting our men in the Western society. It is no secret that the inventors of porn are the “chosen people” of Satan… Now the forces of light are finally fighting back!
Web users in the UK will be banned from accessing websites portraying a range of non-conventional sexual acts, under a little discussed clause to a government bill currently going through parliament.
The proposal, part of the digital economy bill, would force internet service providers to block sites hosting content that would not be certified for commercial DVD sale by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).
It is contained within provisions of the bill designed to enforce strict age verification checks to stop children accessing adult websites. After pressure from MPs, the culture secretary, Karen Bradley, announced on Saturday that the government would amend the bill to include powers to block non-compliant websites.
In order to comply with the censorship rules, many mainstream adult websites would have to render whole sections inaccessible to UK audiences. That is despite the acts shown being legal for consenting over-16s to perform and for adults in almost all other liberal countries to film, distribute and watch.

In late April 2016, Hungary become the first European Union country to "constitutionally ban" Islamization in order to "promote and safeguard our heritage, our unique language, [and] Hungarian culture."
Slovakia has now become the second country to do so.
Two thirds of the Slovakian parliament has just voted through a law which only grants legal status to a religion if is has more than 50,000 members.
"Islamization starts with a kebab and it's already under way in Bratislava, let's realize what we can face in five to 10 years," said Andrej Danko , chairman of the Slovak National Party.
"We must do everything we can so that no mosque is built in the future."
Even the left-wing Prime Minister, Robert Fico, is a supporter of this bill. In the past Fico has himself said he wanted to build a wall and "never accept a single Muslim."
The EU is almost dead and now Western Europe is entering decision time. Will it take the red pill or will it take the blue pill?
If it takes the blue pill, that race doesn't matter, then it will become a colder version of Brazil — poor, powerless, impoverished, and full of ethnic conflict.
If it takes the red pill, that Whites have been targeted for genocide by immigration, then Western Europe continues being a first world continent with democracy, freedom, and prosperity.

On June 1, 2016, Barack Obama held a town hall event on PBS News Hour.
During the question and answers period Barack Obama mocked Donald Trump for wanting to keep Carrier jobs in the United States.
Carrier employee Eric Cottonham asked Obama about his job in Indiana.
Barack Obama mocked Trump, "He just says,
'Well, I'm going to negotiate a better deal.' Well, how — what — how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually, the answer is he doesn't have an answer."
Via PBS Newshour – Presidential Town Hall June 1, 2016:
ERIC COTTONHAM, Carrier Employee: How are you doing, Mr. President?
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: How are you?
ERIC COTTONHAM: My name is Eric Cottonham and I'm representing the Steelworkers Union, Local 1999. And I'm trying to find out, what do we have left far us — all of our jobs are leaving Indianapolis. I see here you're doing a lot of things, but in Indianapolis, there's nothing there for us. I mean, what's next? I mean, what can we look forward to in the future as far as jobs, employment, whatever? Because all of our jobs has left or in the process of leaving, sir.
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Well, in fact, we've seen more manufacturing jobs created since I've been president than anytime since the 1990s. That's a fact. And you know, if you look at just the auto industry as an example, they've had record sales and they've hired back more people over the last five years than they have for a very long, long time.
But for those folks who have lost their job right now because a plant went down the Mexico, that isn't going to make you feel better. And so what we have to do is to make sure that folks are trained for the jobs that are coming in now because some of those jobs of the past are just not going to come back, and when somebody says, like the person you just mentioned who I'm not going to advertise for, that he's going to bring all these jobs back, well how exactly are you going to do that? What are you going to do?
There's — there's no answer to it. He just says, "Well, I'm going to negotiate a better deal." Well, how — what — how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually, the answer is he doesn't have an answer.
Wrong again, Barack.

The United Nations has rejected a UK appeal against its previous ruling in favor of Julian Assange as “inadmissible,” thus requiring both London and Stockholm to end the WikiLeaks founder's “arbitrary detention.”
Earlier this year, a case was concluded at the UN, in which the body instructed the UK and Sweden to take immediate steps to ensure the WikiLeaks founder’s liberty, protection and enjoyment of fundamental human rights.
The UK has appealed the ruling twice, with the UN rejecting its second appeal on Wednesday by pronouncing it “not admissible,” Justice for Assange reported, adding that the decision marks the end to London’s “attempt to overturn the ruling.”
“Now that all appeals are exhausted, I expect that the UK and Sweden will comply with their international obligations and set me free,” a statement by Assange read, with the fugitive whistleblower calling his detention “an obvious and grotesque injustice.”
The recent development in the Assange case at the UN forces the UK and Sweden – which are parties to his case – “to immediately put an end to Mr. Assange’s arbitrary detention and afford him monetary compensation,” Justice for Assange stated, adding that a failure to do so would undermine the UN human rights’ protection system.
Julian Assange faces potential, but as yet unfiled charges over rape allegations in Stockholm that date back to 2010. The whistleblower has always denied the accusations, saying that being taken to Sweden would pave the way for a further extradition to the US, where the government has launched a criminal investigation into WikiLeaks following a 2010 diplomatic cables leak.
He has been sheltered by the Ecuadorian Embassy in London since August 2012. Earlier this month, Swedish investigators came to interview Assange inside the embassy concerning rape charges, with the whistleblower saying he has “cooperated fully” with them.
