Rachel Maddow’s Tuesday Night Trump Tax Report Scored Huge Ratings

Capture

Rachel Maddow‘s report on President Trump‘s 2005 tax returns may have ultimately been a giant letdown, leading to an avalanche of Twitter snark, but it scored some pretty massive ratings.

Per The Daily Beast, Maddow scored a whopping total of 4.13 million viewers, compared to a little over 3 million for Tucker Carlson and a little over 1 million for Anderson Cooper.

But not only was Maddow the most-watched cable news program on Tuesday night, but across all of television, it was the number three show at 9 pm across all networks, behind the season finale of NBC’s This Is Us and NCIS: New Orleans.
