Tucker
Carlson

Journalist / TV Host

Carlson has become the face of Fox News primetime, where he’s been since his program, “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” first launched in the network’s weekday evening schedule in 2017. While his show is routinely characterized as nothing more than an alternative option from liberal-dominated mainstream media, many critics regularly blast it as a source of misinformation and propaganda. Carlson’s comments on immigration and vaccines draw frequent concern as the program encounters trouble lining up a robust slate of national advertisers, given the frequent headlines that overshadow its continuing ratings success and devoted audience. In the third quarter of 2021, his show averaged 3.2 million viewers, maintaining the largest audience for any cable-news program and easily beating out competitors on CNN and MSNBC.
