Nielsen ratings data indicates that conservative host Dan Bongino had the most-watched cable news program in prime time in the United States last week on the same day CNN aired the first two parts of its major documentary on former President Barack Obama, proving that TV audiences are so over the former president.
TVNews Now highlighted that according to ratings statistics, all three Fox News anchors outperformed CNN’s four hours of Obama programming on Saturday.
Both Brian Kilmeade and Lawrence Jones easily outperformed Obama’s broadcasts. Kilmeade attracted 1.119 million viewers at 8 p.m., compared to 529,000 for the first hour of CNN’s Obama coverage. Around 10 p.m., Jones attracted 939,000 viewers versus CNN’s 566,000. Around 11 p.m., Kilmeade once again outperformed CNN with 573,000 viewers to CNN’s 486,000.
Fox News triumphed at 9 p.m. when Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent who protected Obama, surpassed CNN’s Obama epic with 1.199 million viewers compared to CNN’s meager 609,000 viewers for their second hour of Obama propaganda.

According to a news release, “Obama: In Pursuit of a More Perfect Union,” explores the former president’s “personal and political journey to becoming the 44th president of the United States.”
“The series weaves together conversations with colleagues, friends and critics, and interspersed with Obama’s own speeches and news interviews,” the description added. “It begins with Obama’s childhood and takes us through his perspective as the son of a white mother from Kansas and an African father, his spiritual formation by a generation of black leaders, and his hopes for a more inclusive America.”
The series features interviews with a number of radical members of Obama’s inner circle, including anti-American preacher Jeremiah Wright, self-promoting provocateur Al Sharpton, far-left journalist Laura Washington, former Black Panther radical and Congressman Bobby Rush, Representative John Lewis, race-baiting author Ta-Nehisi Coates, and others.
Despite these powerful individuals speaking about Obama’s climb to the top, viewers did not appear particularly engaged in his story. According to the evaluations, Bongino was far more engaging.
Some of Dan’s fans were ecstatic with the outcome:
Way to be Bongino 👏

It appears that factual news on Fox triumphed against CNN’s propaganda promoting the Obama administration. although that is not unexpected. Fox has dominated the ratings for the most of the last two years in a row. Nevertheless, last week alone, two of its shows attracted over three million viewers each.
