hannity-ratings

College football sent ESPN to the top of the adults 18-49 rankings for the week of Aug. 29-Sept. 4. The Saturday prime-time game between Auburn and Clemson scored a 1.8 rating in the demo, six tenths of a point better than anything else.

“Fear the Walking Dead,” another college football game (North Carolina-Georgia), all three hours of “WWE Monday Night Raw” and “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” all tied for second at 1.2.

Wednesday’s “Hannity” on Fox News pulled in its biggest audience ever (5.24 million viewers) following Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s immigration speech. It led the viewer rankings for the week, ahead of TNT’s “Rizzoli & Isles” (4.83 million).
