FOX News Channel’s Sean Hannity will be marking his 1000th episode tonight at 9PM/ET.

For 12 straight years, Hannity co-hosted “Hannity & Colmes” with liberal counterpart, Alan Colmes and in January 2009, Hannity was named solo host of “Hannity.”

Hannity has been #1 in the 9PM/ET time slot for 52 consecutive months, and "Hannity" averages over 2 million viewers each night -- frequently doubling the viewership of his cable news competition, according to Nielsen.

Hannity has been with Fox News since its inception in October 1996.

    But….we all know that the liberals all get their news from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert…and Hannity gets lots more viewers than those guys do…lol

  • Clinging to my guns’s been a real BAD week for the liberals hasn’t it….

    For all the Hannity detractors, here’s a little tidbit for you. Sean Smith was one of the Americans murdered in Benghazi. His mother was told by the State Dept she was not “immediate family” and therefore was not extended plane fare to Washington when his body arrived. Nice, huh? This was her only child. She could not afford the ticket, so Sean Hannity stepped up and paid her way. A class act.

    This is an accomplishment, for sure. I don’t think of Hannity as a journalist (because he isn’t), but he is certainly entertaining… his ratings are proof of that.

    Congrats sean. Your the best! Another 1000 more please! Wow obama adminstration is completly screwed! No way out of this one..cant blame foxnews. Cant blame bush. Cant wait till midterm election. Gonna be a prison pounding. Bout damn time the liberal media actually report facts. Even chris the idiot mathews is pissed. Even jon stewert is goin at obama. Obama =best one lie after another. Maybe obama found out about the fbi scandel by estchin comedy central. He did after all find out about it a year and a half later. Either hes a completely clueless prez. Or hes clueless and a bad liar. I know liberals worship him no matter what happends. But cmon people. Were all americans. (Unless ur a illegal)and this man lied to u and everyone else. wake up! At least the media did! ….this week anyway:)

    @ hillbilly. Brian williams is on NETWORK TV. CABLES IS COMPLETELY DIFFRENT. If brian was on cable he would get smoked in ratings.

    There’s not a funnier show on TV than HaNutty. It’s absurd, weird, and just chock full of nuttiness. If you take this nutcase seriously, you need help.
