Kelly Who? New Tucker Carlson Show Rocks Ratings – 27% MORE Viewers Than Megyn Kelly

The people have spoken – loud and clear.

The new Tucker Carlson show on Fox News, which replaced the now-departed Megyn Kelly, is a ratings MONSTER, thumping Kelly’s previous ratings by 27%!!!

Via GATEWAY PUNDIT:

“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.”

—————–

It cannot be ignored that Mr. Carlson takes a far more fair and balanced approach to the Donald Trump phenomena than Megyn Kelly, who appeared to want to elevate her own career last year by being the Fox personality who would attempt to derail the then-charging Trump political train.

The end result? Donald Trump is entering the White House this week as POTUS, and Megyn Kelly’s replacement is already pummeling her (and the CNN/MSNBC competition) in the ratings.

WINNING.

And just as certain is this young man is in fact a doppelganger for Napoleon Dynamite’s older brother, Kip:
