Fox News Snooze: Kayleigh McEnany Second Night Replacing Tucker Carlson Falls Another 10%


Kayleigh McEnany is the enemy as far as Fox News viewers go.

Replacing Tucker Carlson at 8pm for the second night, McEnany fell in the ratings by another 10%. She went from 1.55 million viewers to 1.4 million. The numbers are dropping quickly at 8pm.

McEnany is annoying, and Fox News doesn’t care. This way, whoever gets the spot eventually will be written as “a big improvement” over Kayleigh. So that’s funny.

I’m told the permanent replacement for Carlson will “a safe choice,” no one explosive, for the time being. That could be Brett Baier, maybe. Another place holder until someone really crazy and bigoted rises to the top.
