Fox News Channel's Year/Year Daytime Growth Topped by Megyn Kelly
We don’t usually see data for the cable news channels from 9a-5p, but in April FNC’s news daytime lineup saw big increases in the advertiser coveted adults 25-54 demographic over the same time period last year (April 2011) with Megyn Kelly posting the largest year-to-year increases. America Live with Megyn Kelly saw hefty increases — up double digits for the two hour program versus last April: up 30% during the 1pm hour and up 35% during the 2pm hour in adults 25-54.
Happening Now, co-hosted by Jon Scott and Jenna Lee, was up big — 34% in 25-54 during both the 11am and 12pm hours. Studio B with Shepard Smith continued the daytime growth trend for April – up 32% in 25-54.
America’s Newsroom, co-anchored by Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum, was up 9% in 25-54 between 9-11am.
