Sorry, MSNBC: Megyn Kelly's Ratings Were That Good


When Megyn Kelly got partially beaten by MSNBC in the ratings on the first night of her new show, the network celebrated. When Kelly surged so far ahead on her second night that she beat every single other show on cable news in the crucial A25-54 category, MSNBC president Phil Griffin insisted that it couldn't be real, called for an investigation and said he had complained to Nielsen about the numbers.

Nielsen did an investigation. The results were...pretty much the same.

From the New York Daily News:

Nielsen has conducted an investigation into the ratings for Megyn Kelly's new Fox News Channel show, "The Kelly File," following grousing by MSNBC chief Phil Griffin.

The investigation has revealed that the numbers for Kelly are accurate.

Sorry, Phil!
