In June, Laura Ingraham’s show, The Ingraham Angle, posted its best ratings yet with an average of 2.654 million viewers, with 544,000 of those falling in the key adults 25-54 demo. That marks the Fox News program’s highest-rated month since it launched back in October. The numbers come despite  a public outcry and call for another advertiser boycott of the program over comments Laura Ingraham made regarding the separation of children and parents at the U.S. southern border. The Ingraham Angle was also one of the top five cable news programs in both total viewers and the demo, reports Variety. The other top programs with the most total viewers include: Hannity with 3.368 million (Fox News), The Rachel Maddow Show with 2.752 million (MSNBC), Tucker Carlson Tonight with 2.697 million (Fox News), and The Five with 2.233 million (Fox News).

Hannity also had its best month since returning to the 9 p.m. slot in September. Fox News had its 66th consecutive quarter as the most-watched cable news network. MSNBC was next, followed by CNN.
