Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly’s show has been number one on cable in the adult 25-54 demo every quarter since 2005, reports CNN Money.
That record has just been snapped. The person who snapped the record is Megyn Kelly, whose program follows O’Reilly’s on Fox News, reports rival CNN.
Says the story, “Kelly’s show averaged 509,000 viewers ages 25 to 54 during the quarter, just ahead of O’Reilly’s 503,000. This is primarily because a special edition of ‘The Kelly File’ aired right after the August 6 debate [between the Republican candidates for president]. Nearly half of the 24 million people who watched the debate stayed tuned for the special, and that gave Kelly’s entire quarter a big boost.”
O’Reilly’s program kept its No. 1 status in total viewers.
