Fox News host Mark Levin stunned fans with a big announcement this week.
Buoyed by coverage of voter fraud, Levin’s Life, Liberty & Levin came in at No. 1 in the Sunday cable ratings, the host announced in a tweet Tuesday, according to the Washington Examiner. The boost in ratings for Levin comes amid widespread concerns among voters about the integrity of the 2020 presidential election.
Levin at the top
Levin, for his part, has been a loud advocate for the millions of Americans who are skeptical of the election results, and he addressed the topic on his show Sunday with the Heritage Foundation’s Hans von Spakovsky and former independent counsel Ken Starr.
According to a TVNewser report cited by the Examiner, the show brought in 3 million viewers, making Levin’s the top program for the day.
Thanks to you, Life, Liberty & Levin had the highest ratings of any cable news show on Sunday. Again. If I don’t mention it no one will. Thank you!

Perhaps part of his appeal, Levin has warned that a Biden presidency will lead to tyranny, declaring himself a member of a new pro-Trump “resistance” if the Democrat assumes power.
“Let me tell you something, I’m part of the new resistance, God forbid, if our president doesn’t win,” Levin told Sean Hannity last week, according to the Examiner. He continued:
They didn’t give this man one minute of peace when he was president. Not one minute. State criminal investigations, federal criminal investigations, congressional investigations, phony impeachment, coup attempts, the Obama–Biden administration with the FBI spies, and all the rest. At no time during the last four years did Joe Biden say, “Let’s unite around our president.”
Fox News takes flak
It all comes as Fox News has taken criticism from its audience for its coverage of the election, which has largely toed the mainstream media line that Biden is the legitimate winner, with few exceptions.
The network lost to CNN in its primetime coverage after the election, with an average of 5.7 million viewers in primetime, according to Deadline.
Even President Trump has slammed Fox News for its handling of the election controversy, Deadline notes.
.@FoxNews daytime ratings have completely collapsed. Weekend daytime even WORSE. Very sad to watch this happen, but they forgot what made them successful, what got them there. They forgot the Golden Goose. The biggest difference between the 2016 Election, and 2020, was @FoxNews!
