NBC was second of the broadcast networks with 7,030,000 total, followed by ABC (4,432,000) and FOX (2,562,000). People who believe Trump is a dire threat to the country think that TV networks should not help spread his propaganda.

So, the late show host wants to do something about it. Kimmel said he'll invite a federal employee to work at Jimmy Kimmel Live! every night until Trump's shutdown ends.

In the past, Trump's talks to the nation have been carefully scrutinized for false information. "Otherwise, they're just passing on his lies unfiltered", Meyers said.

Smith's analysis drew an angry response on Twitter from many of Fox News' conservative fans.

Trump will visit the Capitol on Wednesday to meet with Senate Republicans, and has invited Democratic and Republican congressional leaders to return to the White House to meet with him later that day.

And yet this time around, all the major networks said they'd provide coverage of the speech.
