A Fox News program approached a series high in total viewers thanks to an appearance by Donald Trump. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Trump’s interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” delivered 2.3 million viewers.
The total makes it the second-most-watched installment of the show in its 20-year history, trailing only an episode focusing on the capture of Saddam Hussein in 2003. Adding in broadcast and cable repeats, the Trump episode reached an audience of almost 6 million viewers, THR notes.
“In the key news demographic of adults 25-54, ‘Fox News Sunday’ was at a best since 2008 with 728,000 viewers,” the report adds. “Compared to the same time in 2015, that marked a 53 percent spike.”
