“Jesse Watters Primetime” found itself in the third-place slot on Thursday, just trailing behind two other Fox News programs, one of which he co-hosts!

Coming in behind “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and “The Five,” Watters finds himself in good company at the top of the ratings leaderboard, claiming the spot that normally belonged to Fox News opinion host Sean Hannity.

Watters managed to rake in a massive 3.01 million viewers on Thursday, and even went on to beat “The Five” in the key 25-54 age demographic, pulling in 526,000 viewers in that demo to “The Five’s” 511,000.

While the numbers dipped a bit on Friday, Watters was still able to accumulate a nice viewership of 2.65 million total with 347,000 demo viewers. Hannity maintained this third-place status on Friday as well, though it remains to be seen if Watters’ new show can maintain or grow its popularity over time.

The young Fox News host was able to enter the primetime scene with quite a splash, with the premiere of his eponymous show bringing in 3.8 million total viewers with 537,000 of those in the key demo. These ratings were compared to the viewership CNN’s Jim Acosta got during his “Democracy in Peril” special, which drew in a shocking 511,000 total average viewers. The difference between the shows was a mind-blowing 3.3 million viewers.

Perhaps Watters’ wild showing was due to the promise he made to his audience, vowing to expose the corruption and disrespect facing the American people every day.

“The American people have run out of patience, and we’re tired of being disrespected,” he said bluntly.

“Ignorant, greedy leaders sold out our factories and pride to the Chinese Communists for unpatriotic profits. Deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan; wars shamefully mismanaged took a physical and mental toll. We were oversaturated with highly addictive painkillers, while Wall Street blew up the economy and escaped with golden parachutes instead of prison stripes,” he continued, discussing the current state of affairs in the United States.

“Cyber-warriors continue to seek division on the basis of skin color while intentionally ignoring the true class-based divisions being created by those in power,” Watters continued.

“The left romanticized rage and resistance for four straight years, but now they want to cancel you for just daring to disagree. And just as we came up for air, a sketchy virus slipped out of the very country we arrogantly misjudged two decades ago when we brought them into the [World Trade Organization],” he added.

“[T]he American people have been disrespected for far too long. And that stops tonight. We’ll be exposing the scoundrels, celebrating the patriots, and making sure we’re respected. We’re in a republic and we give our representatives power to represent us, not themselves. Every night, we’ll remind them they work for us,” he vowed.
