Here’s What Happened to Laura Ingraham’s Ratings After the Hogg Controversy

By The Blaze. According to the San Francisco Gate, Ingraham lost 6 percent of total viewers from Wednesday to Thursday, and 9 percent in the key demo of Americans aged 25 to 54.

Ingraham had 2.152 million total viewers on Thursday, down 137,000 from 2.289 million on Wednesday. This allowed MSNBC’s progressive program from Lawrence O’Donnell to steal the top spot from Ingraham in overall viewers.

Although she saw a decline in ratings overall and was overcome by MSNBC, Ingraham can console herself by knowing her show hasn’t sunk below CNN’s viewership which came in at third with only 839,000 total viewers.

Ingraham’s show has been struck with a boycott by those who were offended at her mockery of David Hogg over his not being accepted into the colleges of his choice. Hogg called for a boycott, after which Ingraham apologized for her comments. (Read more from “Here’s What Happened to Laura Ingraham’s Ratings After the Hogg Controversy” HERE)
