Tucker Carlson Has Strong Start At 9PM For Fox
David Bauder at the AP reports, Carlson averaged just under 3 million viewers for his first week of shows in Fox's prime-time lineup, or 10 percent more than the 2.72 million viewers that Kelly averaged all of last year, the Nielsen company said.
Fox's numbers are strong in general as many of its viewers eagerly await the start of the Trump administration. Carlson's lead-in, Bill O'Reilly, averaged 3.5 million last week, or 7 percent more than what he averaged last year. Sean Hannity, Fox's other prime-time personality, was up 16 percent last week in the same measurement, Nielsen said.
Kelly announced on Jan. 3 that she was leaving Fox News Channel for a new job at NBC News
