Apparently Playboy is still a thing and Fox News' Sean Hannity sat down with them for an interview in which he got pretty annoyed talking about his roller coaster ratings and Rachel Maddow.

In February, Hannity's show took a 35 percent nosedive in the coveted 25-54 age demographic. Rachel Maddow beat Hannity that month. His ratings have since come back, but he doesn't like to talk about it.

PLAYBOY: Let’s move on. Fox News’s ratings are down, and your show in particular has taken a hit this year.

HANNITY: No, actually, our ratings are back up.

PLAYBOY: Your ratings were down 35 percent in February.

HANNITY: Well, from the year before, which was an election year.

PLAYBOY: Rachel Maddow has beaten you in your time slot.

HANNITY: Never! Not once!

PLAYBOY: She has in the key 25- to 54-year-old demographic.

HANNITY: But overall, we’re at double her ratings. You’ve got to be careful how you make these comparisons.
