Megyn Kelly Pulled Off Something MSNBC’s President Said Was ‘Impossible’
Oct. 15, 2013 9:50am Madeleine MorgensternIt turns out Megyn Kelly’s ratings did double on the second night of her primetime Fox News show, despite the president of MSNBC calling it “impossible.”
Phil Griffin actually said there should be “some investigations” after ratings for “The Kelly File” increased 100 percent on the show’s second night.
“Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic, on the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, we either tied or beat them in those hours,” Griffin said last week. “Tuesday–you guys should be doing some investigations–I have never seen it in all my years of cable, same overnight, same everything, and they doubled their ratings in a day? It is impossible.”
The New York Daily News reported that ratings tracker Nielsen conducted an investigation and, sure enough, Kelly’s numbers were accurate.
