Kayleigh McEnany Takes Over Fox News 8pm Slot and Loses 700,000 Viewers from Lead in Jesse Watters


On Monday at 8pm, former Trump mouthpiece and inveterate liar Kayleigh McEnany took over the 8pm slot on Fox News. That was Tucker Carlson’s show.

Total viewers for this ridiculous person: 1.5 million. Total viewers for the preceding show, hosted by bloviator Jesse Watters: 2.2 million.

McEnany lost 700,000 viewers the minute she arrived on the air.

Her show did some damage to Sean Hannity, who followed at 9pm with 1.9 million. Even though 400,000 people returned to Fox after Kayleigh’s show, Hannity was down again from pre-Dominion reveal highs. Hannity’s audience has been eroded and he’s now regularly losing to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow. But Fox News 8pm has been destroyed.
