Megyn Kelly Lands Knockout Blow on Fox News: ‘Not Even Bud Light Lost This Much of Its Customer Base’

Ex-Fox News star Megyn Kelly has issued a warning to Rupert Murdoch about the future of the network as the ratings continue to plummet.

Fox’s viewer numbers have tanked after Murdoch fired star anchor Tucker Carlson.

Kelly thinks the decision to part ways is backfiring like Bud Light’s disastrous marketing stunt.

Ex-CNN media critic Brian Stelter broke down the bad news for Murdoch and Fox News:

Tuesday’s ratings showcase the new normal for Fox without Tucker:

5pm: 2.72 million viewers.

6pm: 1.89 mil.

7pm: 2.04 mil.

8pm: 1.48 mil.

9pm: 1.91 mil.

10pm: 1.67 mil.

Tucker averaged 3 mil at 8pm.

So that hour has been cut in half. And the later hours have lost at least a quarter.

Megyn Kelly responded to the numbers, saying: “Bloodbath.

“Not even Bud [Light] (which is currently giving away its beer in an effort to get ppl to pls pls drink it) lost this much of its customer base.”

How bad is it for Fox News?

Just one week after the shocking removal of Carlson, Fox News lost the primetime ratings battle to MSNBC, as Slay News reported earlier.

MSNBC beat Fox News in total primetime viewers and with the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demographic.

Previously, Fox was beating the combined audience of MSNBC and CNN.

Fox News brought in 1.598 million total viewers and 164,000 demo viewers Monday during primetime.

But MSNBC had 1.693 million total viewers and 176,000 demo viewers.
