CNN and MSNBC were beaten in the ratings war by Tucker Carlson’s FOX interview with Kyle Rittenhouse.
On November 19, Kyle Rittenhouse was found not guilty of all charges, and Fox News was the first network to interview him following his release.
On Monday, November 22, Tucker Carlson’s Fox News interview with Kyle Rittenhouse aired, drawing more than five million viewers, more than double the number of viewers who tuned in to CNN and MSNBC on the same day.
Carlson’s interview aired between 8 p.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern time, and during that time period, MSNBC’s ‘All In With Chris Hayes’ and CNN’s ‘Anderson Cooper 360°’ also aired, but the first drew 1.2 million viewers while the second drew only 792,000.
With his post-trial interview of Rittenhouse, Carlson not only beat CNN and MSNBC, but also his own channel’s shows like ‘The Five’ and ‘Hannity.’
On Monday, November 22, 3.72 million people watched ‘The Five,’ which airs at 5 p.m., while 3.28 million people watched ‘Hannity,’ which airs right after Carlson’s show.

Kyle Rittenhouse speaks for the first time since being found not guilty: ‘Correct verdict.’
Will Gaige Grosskreutz, Maurice Freeland, and Joshua Ziminski face charges in the Kyle Rittenhouse case?
After being accused of killing two men and injuring another on August 25, 2020, Rittenhouse was cleared of all charges on November 19, and Fox News was the first network to interview him following his release.
First-degree reckless homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, first-degree intentional homicide, attempted first-degree intentional homicide, possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under the age of 18, and use of a dangerous weapon were among the charges he was facing.
The teen claimed to be a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement on the show.
“I’m not racist,” he stated emphatically.
“I support the Black Lives Matter movement and peaceful protest,” he said, before adding, “I feel like my life has been severely tarnished.”
“I thought they came to the correct verdict because it wasn’t Kyle Rittenhouse on trial in Wisconsin — it was the right to self-defense on trial,” Rittenhouse said, adding, “I thought they came to the correct verdict because it wasn’t Kyle Rittenhouse on trial in Wisconsin — it was the right to self-defense on trial.”
And if I’m found guilty, no one will ever have the honor of defending their life against assailants.”
However, many people expressed their dissatisfaction with the decision.
“The prosecution’s real problems began when one of their key witnesses, the victim who survived, took the witness stand, and he essentially conceded self-defense on cross-examination,” according to former US Attorney Joyce Vance.
He made a point of mentioning that he was holding a gun.
The prosecution tried to argue their way out of it, but I believe they were unsuccessful.
