Lefty elites will never understand Sean Hannity's cable news dominance

In the month of February, Sean Hannity reigned as the undisputed king of cable news. The host's eponymously named "Hannity" show topped the ratings with 3.33 million average nightly viewers and led the advertiser-friendly 25-54 age range with 711,000 average nightly viewers. Hannity's main rival in the 9 p.m. hour is MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

According to TV Newser, "Feb. 2018 was Hannity’s most-watched month since moving back to the 9 p.m. timeslot last fall."

Hannity's continued dominance shows that there is a strong market for those willing to challenge the liberal mainstream media narrative. The conventional wisdom after the election of Donald Trump was that Fox would lose its dominance of cable news without a "boogeyman" to attack. While that looked plausible during parts of 2017, Hannity's focus on countering the liberal narrative has moved him into first place.

One of Hannity's main points over the last few months has been to show what is really happening in the so-called Russian collusion case. Hannity has had a laser focus on the FISA abuses of the Obama administration. Frequent guests explaining just how wrong the CNN/MSNBC left-wing narrative is on the special counsel's investigation have been CRTV's Dan Bongino and LevinTV host Mark Levin.
