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.
Word-of-mouth mostly came through Twitter, where Maddow first made the announcement.
