[Ed. – … Combined.  Apparently a substantial number of Brit TV viewers is as fed up with the MSM as Americans.  The UK population is about 68.2 million, or just over a fifth of the USA’s.]

Nigel Farage’s weeknight programme has hit its highest ratings and beat the BBC and the Comcast-owned Sky News combined on Thursday.

In ratings figures seen by Guido Fawkes, Farage averaged 145,100 viewers, beating the combined viewers of the offerings of BBC News (113,100) and Sky News (29,100).

The ratings came after the political news website had revealed in recent weeks that Mr Farage’s 7 p.m. programme had beaten the BBC, in total on five nights, and continues to dominate commercial television, reportedly outstripping the viewership of Sky News every night of airing since Farage was launched on July 19th.
