Skip to comments.Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Tops Cable Kingpin Bill O’Reilly For First Time For Entire Week
Posted on 06/09/2014 6:22:47 PM PDT by windcliff
It might be known as the week that saw an earthquake at Fox News Channel as Megyn Kelly beat the almost unbeatable Bill OReilly in the key news demo last week. Yes, the 9 PM The Kelly File has topped 8 PMs The OReilly Factor on FNC before both on individual nights and even for a full week. However, those single nights were mainly around the time Kellys show debuted in early October last year and on Election Night 2013. The Kelly File beat The Factor during the week of May 5, but OReilly himself wasnt hosting that week. Last weeks victory was the first host-to-host face-off where Kelly came out the winner. From June 2-June 6, Kelly File drew 413,000 adults 25-54.

Thats a hair ahead of the 402,000 that OReilly pulled in among the demo, but in ratings as in horse races, a win is still a win. Both shows were up from the 344,000 and 370,000 among the 24-54s that they had the previous week, respectively. OReilly remained No. 1 with 2.528 million viewers overall compared to Kellys 2.434 million. Last week was Kellys second best week of the year among the demo so far.
Blowhard O’Blowhard sucks.
Kelly is simply better than the swelled-head O’Reilly who thinks whatever position he takes MUST be correct and he talks over any guess who disagrees with that position. He tries to pick a middle-of-the road position whether it’s correct or not. He believes in man-caused climate change and anyone who questions or disbelieves that theory must be wrong according to the great O’Reilly.
I just wish they’d switch O’Reilly’s and Kelly’s times.
I gave up on B O’R after he interviewed Obama in the first election. He was the ONE shot we had at getting a real tough questioning by a conservative. Instead, he fawned and kissed Obozo’s butt.
I like Bill O’Reilly. He was the first person on any news analysis show that I ever saw who would challenge the lies of the left wing talking heads. I’ll always respect him for that.
HOWEVER, I also can plainly see that he lacks the ability to see outside his relatively narrow ideological boundaries. Sad, because if he could, he’d be a strong ally for us.
At least Megyn Kelly lets her guests speak. It’s not as frustrating to listen to as O’Reilly. He’s so full of himself.
Yeah? Well they’re both a couple of dullards....
Ted Baxter sucks!
BOR Is NOT a conservative and he will be the first to tell you that. He’s a fence straddling nut-monkey who’s completely in love with himself.
O’Reiley is a Blow hard opportunist. Kelly cares about this country.
I guess you don't remember Rush Limbaugh's TV show back during the Clinton era.
His program should be aired at midnight, Mountain Standard Time.
This is long overdue. I stopped watching BOR a long time ago and he’s now no better than Geraldo.
I remember Rush’s show. But he didn’t challenge them TO THEIR FACE like O’Reilly does.
This is a fantastic development. Maybe Roger Ailes will start to see that the only thing O’Reilly has going for him is the best timeslot in cable news. Swap his timeslot with Megyn and watch O’Reilly sink beneath the waves like a stone. I wouldn’t mind seeing either Greta or Jeanine Pirro moved into Megyn’s timeslot after that. Maybe I’d even begin to find Fox News watchable again. It’s been a while.
Last week she had Bergdahl’s former group on her show over two nights. That alone had to draw a hugh crowd.
I can’t stand O’Really’s interviewing manner. He continually interrupts and cuts off guests while stroking his ego.
He’s a joke.
I used to watch Rush Limbaugh during lunch every day at work back in the early 90s. The owner of the shop would come into the break room and turn it on every day and sit there watch it during lunch. LOL
I recall his show on late at night in Central Time US. Either you ate a very late lunch or you worked in asia somewhere.
You think O’Reilly’s Conservative? LOL! He’s a card-carrying Populist!
We watched it every day at noon.
Were you in the US? Was it from that day or a rerun from the night before?
Michigan. It might have been from the night before or something.
There was nothing at all like Rush in those days and he sure pissed the liberals off.
Good times compared to these.
Don’t like either show.
so true... after Obama won the election, i boycotted all network news--including FOX...
Try Judge Jeanie on week end for a real trooper.
Doing the job Leprechauns are too dumb to do.
I DVR BOR on Wednesday night to watch Denis Miller. Other four nights I alternate between Megyn and Sean. I watch the shows after the 10:00 pm local news.
Congrats to Megyn, never heard of the other guy.
Who knew Bill was still on?
Well aside from her being easier to listen to, she’s a damn sight easier on the eyes.
I like Judge Jeanines show the best. She does not hold any punches.
[That alone had to draw a hugh crowd.]
OH, OH, you might have restarted something.
By saying hugh are you really series, or prolly only a little bit tired?
Funny Fox does not air Kelly on Roku.
They air short segments from the Five, Greta, Brett Baier, Hannity, and O’Really/
Nothing from Kelly.
Congrats Megyn Kelly,knew you were a Star.
The Rush TV Show was in Syndication so it was broadcast at various times in various markets.
8:00 pm slot try the Daily Ledger on One America News, Graham Ledger
IS THE BEST!!!!! SOOOOOOOOO much better than BOR!!!!! it is broadcast on Verizon FIOS PLEASE check it out you will NOT be disappointed!!!!!!!
I LOVE JUDGE JEANINE SHE IS THE BEST FOX HAS TO OFFER!!!!
Gretta is right behind her!!!!!!
Her shrillness and chinny fembotism is so off putting to this southern alpha man
But she has worked her cute little ass off on this issue....to her credit
I hereby un-un-friend her till she goes chinbot on me again with all that Helen Reddy rubbish
I was in Manhattan then....came on at 9pm
