Trump’s 60 Minutes Ratings Absolutely Tank From Last Interview
President Donald Trump‘s ratings are hitting new lows… his raucous sit-down with Lesley Stahl for 60 Minutes, which aired Sunday night, notched 11.3 million total viewers and 1.8 in the 18-49 demo.
Per Deadline, that’s a “47% dive in the demo and 43% in total viewers” since Trump’s last 60 Minutes interview, which aired just after his 2016 election win.
Then-president elect Trump saw monster ratings for the interview, notching 20 million total viewers and 3.4 in the demo.
Trump’s latest 60 Minutes interview comes at the end of a weeklong media blitz, including several hits on Fox News and various other interviews. The interview, thanks to Stahl’s impressive questioning, was thrilling, and benefitted from an NFL ratings lead-in (unlike his last 60 Minutes interview).
Trump’s frenetic and at times contentious sit down with Stahl covered everything from his controversial border policy to his views on climate change, Saudi Arabia, the Russia investigation, the media, Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin, his mockery of Christine Blasey Ford, etc, etc.
As Deadline notes, Trump’s interview is even down from 60 Minutes‘ “most recent broadcast benefiting from an NFL overrun,” on September 30, which notched 13.5 million total viewers and 2.2 in the demo.
