Trump Interview Gives Hannity’s Show a Pleasant Surprise, and He Can Thank 45 for That

The opinions of former President Donald Trump are of great interest to many Fox News viewers. The network’s 9 p.m. edition of “Hannity” saw its biggest ratings ever after host Sean Hannity interviewed the Republican heavyweight and 2024 presidential candidate slot of time on Monday.

The Hill claimed on Wednesday, using Nielsen Media Research statistics, that Hannity’s ratings increased by 20% after his interview with Trump. About three million people watched the show, with an impressive 358 thousand falling within the desirable 25-54-year-old bracket.

During the interview, Trump slammed Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, widely seen as his most formidable Republican rival for the party’s nominee for president. He said that during the 2018 gubernatorial campaign, DeSantis approached him with “tears in his eyes” to plead for his support.
