Laura Ingraham’s Fox News program saw its highest-rated month ever in June despite two advertiser boycotts led by Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg.

“The Ingraham Angle” earned 2.654 million total viewers per night last month the highest the show has seen since it launched in late October, The Wrap reported Tuesday.

Ms. Ingraham thanked her viewers and production team in a tweet Tuesday afternoon.

This after Mr. Hogg, an 18-year-old anti-gun activist, renewed his call for a boycott against Ms. Ingraham last month after she compared migrant child detention centers to “summer camps.”

In March, Mr. Hogg successfully pressured multiple companies to pull advertising from Ms. Ingraham’s show after she mocked the teen’s inability to get into certain colleges. Despite losing nearly 30 advertisers, “The Ingraham Angle” saw a nearly 20-percent ratings increase immediately following the boycott.
