Tucker Carlson Doubles Ratings After Only Two Weeks in Megyn Kelly’s Timeslot

The transition from Megyn Kelly to Tucker Carlson has been a seamless one for Fox News.

Though Carlson is only two weeks into hosting the 9 p.m. time slot for the network, he has easily surpassed Kelly and nearly doubled her ratings.

Carlson, who was hosting “Tucker Carlson Tonight” during the 7 p.m. slot at the time, replaced Kelly in early January after she announced she was leaving the network for a position with NBC News. Compared with her performance in the same two weeks last year, Carlson is up 95 percent in the 25-54 news demo and 46 percent overall.

He averages 3.7 million viewers a night, easily trouncing CNN and MSNBC.
