Megyn Kelly has been alienating Fox News fans for months now with her frequent attacks on Donald Trump as she attempts to appeal to mainstream audiences. Now, however, this has come back to bite her in a big way, as she has officially been exposed as the “weak link” at Fox News.
According to Breitbart, Fox fell behind CNN in the ratings in October for a full month for the first time since 2001.
“CNN enjoyed its strongest ratings month in years in October, beating rival Fox News in the key 25-54 demographic for a full month for the first time since 2001,” The Hill’s Joe Concha wrote. “CNN averaged 704,000 prime time viewers overall in October from the ages 25-54 demographic — the most coveted group by advertisers. Fox came in second with an average of 663,000 viewers, while MSNBC averaged 432,000 viewers — an all-time high for the Comcast-owned network.”
This news comes as Kelly has emerged as the face of the network thanks to her close relationship with the Murdoch family. Rupert Murdoch’s sons James and Lachlan, who have taken over 21st Century Fox, decided to make Kelly the future of the network, according to a Vanity Fair profile earlier in October.
Since Kelly went public with her blatantly anti-Trump views, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has beaten her in their timeslot on at least two occasions.
“Rachel Maddow made history last week when her show beat Fox News’ The Kelly File in both total viewers and the key news demo of adults age 25-54 on Thursday… then it happened again on Friday,” The Wrap’s Brian Flood wrote on Oct. 20. “Thursday’s victory was the first time The Rachel Maddow Show has ever beaten Fox News in both categories. She averaged 609,000 demo viewers and 2.5 million total viewers. Maddow’s show debuted in 2008. The momentum continued, at least in the demo, on Monday when Maddow beat CNN and Fox News among viewers age 25-54, but fell to Megyn Kelly’s The Kelly File in total viewers.”
