BOOM! Tucker Carlson Smashes Megyn Kelly’s Ratings by 27% in First Week

Tucker Carlson got off to an amazing start his first week following The O’Reilly Factor on FOX News Channel. In his first week Carlson was up 27{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} over Megyn Kelly’s numbers from the same week last year.

It looks like that was a good move for FOX – and they saved themselves a heap of money too.
AIM.org reported:

Fox News’ Tucker Carlson got off to a roaring start in his primetime debut Monday night by easily outdistancing both MSNBC and CNN, proving at least for now that the decision to slide him into Megyn Kelly’s old timeslot was an excellent one.

Carlson averaged 493,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demo, beating out CNN’s town hall special with Bernie Sanders (414,000) and The Rachel Maddow Show (324,000).

Overall, Tucker Carlson Tonight averaged 2.699 million total viewers, nearly beating the combined total of MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show (1.369 million) and CNN’s town hall special (1.357 million).

Compared to Kelly’s numbers on the same day last year, Carlson was up 27 percent in total viewers and a whopping 45 percent in the key 25-54 demographic, showing that Fox News may not wind up missing Kelly as much as everyone thought.
