November 2014 Ratings: For First Time Ever Megyn Kelly is No. 1 Show in the Demo

FNClogo2Fox News Channel was the second most-watched cable channel, only topped by ESPN, in the month of November. FNC saw slight +2% growth for total day viewing, but experienced double-digit (+20%) growth in the A25-54 demo in primetime. FNC delivered its highest rated month since May 2013 in total viewers and April 2013 in the A25-54 demo, when the Boston Marathon bombing occurred.

The ratings for November, 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 2,082,000 total viewers / 407,000 A25-54
  • Total Day Mon-Sun): 1,226,000 total viewers / 253,000 A25-54

“America’s Newsroom,” “Happening Now,” “The Five” and “Special Report with Bret Baier” all had their best months in two years, since Nov. 2012. “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” and “Hannity” each had their best months in both viewers and the A25-54 demo since settling into new timeslots in Oct. 2013.

And for the first time ever “The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly,” was the No. 1 show on cable news in the A25-54 demo. The last time a host other than Bill O’Reilly has won the demo was in Oct. 2012, when the 10pmET hour, which included presidential debates, was No. 1. Fox News has now been the No. 1 cable news channel for 155 consecutive months in total viewers.

The Ticker: Strong, Dish, Baier, CNBC

  • SNL’s Cecily Strong will be the entertainer for the 2015 Correspondents Association dinner April 25. Strong’s father Bill Strong, is the former AP bureau chief at the Illinois Statehouse.‎ Strong will be just the fourth woman to serve as the entertainer in the 82-year history of the WHCD.
  • If you’re a Dish subscriber prepare to lose several channels. 14 million customers could lose CBS tonight. TNT and TBS could be pulled as of Dec. 5. Even Lilly Broadcasting stations in Elmira, NY and Erie, PA, have been pulled from the service as negotiations continue.
  • FOX News Channel’s “Special Report with Bret Baier” will debut a new segment, “The Presidential Contenders: 2016″ tonight at 6pm ET. Nearly two dozen prospective presidential candidates will be featured, with a new profile coming every two weeks until the start of debate season in late summer 2015.
  • CNBC will debut “Kensho Stats Box” today, providing business newsers with Kensho technology to provide real-time, in-depth analysis without the manpower typically required. Kensho makes statistical computing systems and will also be teaming with CNBC to create new content and digital products.

The Fox Ticker: Ratings, Greta, Gruber,

  • Greta Van Susteren traveled to Midland, Texas today to interview President George W. Bush at his childhood home. The interviews airs tonight “On the Record” at 7pmET.

  • Sean Hannity sent a camera crew to MIT to talk with Jonathan Gruber, whose comments about Obamacare have made up much of Fox News’s coverage over the last week. Here’s some of what they got on campus, more tonight on “Hannity.”


Bill O’Reilly Shoots Down Idea of John Kasich Hosting ‘The Factor’

On Tuesday night, congressman-turned-Fox News host-turned Governor John Kasich joked following his re-election in Ohio that wanted to return to FNC. Speaking with Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly, Kasich said, “What I’m really bucking for in the short term is to come back and host O’Reilly again at least once or twice. It would be fun.”

Well, Bill O’Reilly shot down that idea on Wednesday night. It’s safe to say that politicians won’t be hosting “The Factor” anytime soon. Check out the video.
