At the Republican debate last Thursday, Megyn Kelly tried to save her struggling television show by going after Donald Trump in front of millions of people.
Unfortunately for her, this turned out to be a huge mistake.
The backlash against Kelly for her inexcusable behavior during the debate was swift. Thousands signed a petition demanding she be banned from ever hosting a debate again, and even her co-anchors at Fox started to turn on her. Things got worse for her when Trump himself fired back at her, and yesterday it was revealed that Kelly is taking offers from other networks.
Last night, Megyn Kelly was back on TV to host The Kelly File, and the ratings from last night have just come in. According to Mediaite, Kelly should be giving Trump a HUGE thank you, because her show was the #1 highest-rated show across all of cable news Monday night.
Kelly was number one in both the 25-54 demo (568K) and total viewers (2.915M), topping even Fox’s hit show The O’Reilly Factor.
Here are the full ratings:
Megyn Kelly owes Donald Trump a HUGE thank you. Last week, her cable show was struggling in the ratings department, but thanks to the publicity she’s gotten from the business mogul, she is now number one again. While she’s thanking him, she should also apologize for EVER trying to take him down!
