Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Gives "Colbert Show" Massive Ratings Bump

Yes, the Marxist-Leninist has a real and huge following.

Get a load of this, via Vulture (emphasis in original):
Per Nielsen, the first-year congresswoman from New York delivered a massive ratings bump for "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" last night, helping the CBS late-night show match its best numbers for a Monday ever...
As part of what’s been dubbed the Colbert Primary, a parade of potential 2020 Democratic presidential contenders have been stopping by The Late Show to boost their visibility. But so far, almost none has drawn as big an overnight audience as AOC. California senator Kamala Harris came closest, scoring a 2.9 rating on January 10, a bit better than last week’s visit by New York senator Kirsten Gillibrand (in which she officially announced her 2020 candidacy) and Vermont senator Bernie Sanders. The latter two politicos notched a 2.8 household rating. Also dropping by Colbert over the past six weeks: California congressman Adam Schiff (2.7 rating) and former Obama administration Cabinet official (turned presidential candidate) Juli├ín Castro(2.4 rating), who appeared with his congressman brother Joaquin


  1. No wonder why I don't watch the late-night talk shows any more. Not only am I unwilling to stay up this late, but these are the kinds of guests they have now. Pass.

  2. Oh Colbert is just straight up a DNC mouth piece. Pure propaganda. I still don’t understand how he can make jokes about trump that aren’t funny. He owes his success to trump getting elected. If HRC had won I don’t think he would have a following at all.
