    President Donald Trump speaks to supporters as he formally announced his 2020 re-election bid on June 18 in Orlando, Fla.

LOS ANGELES >> Ratings figures show Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson enjoyed a ratings surge from last week’s 2020 Trump campaign kickoff rally.

Viewers watching last week’s event in Orlando, Florida, boosted cable star “Hannity” to a top 10 showing among both broadcast and cable programs.

According to Nielsen figures released today, Hannity’s rally coverage drew 5 million viewers and ranked 7th among all weekly programs.

“Tucker Carlson Tonight” landed at No. 14 with 4.5 million viewers.

While Fox News covered the hour-plus rally live and in full, it got relatively limited attention from competitors MSNBC and CNN.

Overall, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” was the most-watched show with 10 million viewers.
