Tucker Carlson launched the first episode of his new show, “Tucker On Twitter,” styled similarly after his record-smashing primetime show “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” less than two months after his departure from Fox.
The show dropped late Tuesday afternoon and, at the time of this writing, has already garnered over 72 million views.
Tucker announced in May that he would be hosting a “new version of the show we’ve been doing for the past six and a half years” on the Elon Musk-owned social media platform, which he called “the last big [free speech platform] remaining in the world.”

Over the weekend, Twitter found itself embroiled in controversy when the platform censored conservative podcaster Matt Walsh’s documentary, “What Is A Woman?,” leading many to question Elon Musk’s commitment to free speech. In the end, however, all restrictions were removed, and Musk himself retweeted the film with the recommendation that every parent watch it.
Despite the initial censorship, “What Is A Woman?” went on to amass 170 million views, blowing past the viewership for Joe Biden’s State of the Union (27.3 million) and the “Game of Thrones” finale (19.3 million).
These staggering numbers prove that Twitter, under Musk’s management, has become the lone major social media platform on which conservatives can have an extensive, unstifled impact.
“What Is A Woman got 175 million views,” Matt Walsh tweeted. “Tucker's first episode has 20 million views in just four hours. We're watching as Twitter becomes a legitimate platform to watch not just short clips but full monologues, shows and even films. Absolute game changer. Huge win for free speech.”

Of course, while we may have a safe haven on Twitter for now, we must remember that corporate America, the media, and the forces that got Tucker fired in the first place are all still against us. Even as viewership on “Tucker on Twitter” continues to climb, we’d be wise to join the popular host in his stand against the establishment.
Earlier this year, Tucker Carlon voiced his support for using an Article V convention to rein in our corrupt federal government. To join him and other trusted endorsers, including Gov.
