Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday night ridiculed the ratings for the prime-time showing of President Donald Trump's interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos and said the network chief anchor needs to "pack it up."

“I know George Stephanopoulos is a Clinton sycophant—oh, by the way, the lowest ratings EVER for his hour special,” Hannity said during his opening monologue. “Our phone interviews with Donald Trump rated higher!"

Later in the show, during his handoff to The Ingraham Angle, Hannity panned the Stephanopoulos ratings, commenting "to be on a network and get your ass kicked and I only did a phone interview — by little ol' Sean Hannity. He needs to just pack it up. That is humiliating for him!”

The Daily Beast reports the hour-long Trump interview finished in third place in its time slot, attracting 3.91 million viewers. Fox News' Laura Ingraham pointed out to Hannity that the ABC event, which had gathered headlines since last week, beat "Sixty Minutes" in the demographic and was competing against the finals of the U.S. Open.

At any rate, the ABC special marked a steep drop from Celebrity Family Feud, which the week before drew an audience of more than 6 million in the same time slot.

Hannity wrapped up his show with an announcement that he'd be interviewing Trump Wednesday night, and commented that during a telephone interview with the president in March, he drew in 4.3 million viewers.

Trump, however, promoted the interview on Twitter and said he enjoyed it and that he might make more network appearances to get the word out about his presidency.
