Meyers debunked their claim after prosecutors charged a fourth Capitol riot defendant with a firearms violation. He also pointed out that guns weren’t the only weapons at the siege; the insurrectionists armed themselves with clubs, spears, shields, bear spray, mace and other chemical irritants.

Meyers’ attack on Bartiromo came just days after another Fox News host, Sean Hannity, tweeted about the NBC host’s poor ratings. On Friday, Hannity wrote, “Seth you can’t even get 1 million viewers a night. Why you wonder? Your show sucks and you are not funny. You are locked into partisan politics of which you know nothing. It’s just a matter of time before your boring sh– show is cancelled….”

From the week of June 14 to June 20, Meyers’ show averaged 668,000 total viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data. Of those, only 209,000 were in the advertiser-coveted age demographic of 25 to 54. His direct competitor on CBS, James Corden, drew an average of 862,000, by comparison. Corden’s “Late Late Show” also averaged 204,000 in the demo, just under Meyers’ demo total.
