Fox News was easily the ratings winner during one of the most divisive election months in recent history. For the month of November (ratings are averaged up until November 22 at Showbuzz Daily), Bill O'Reilly comes in first place with an average of 4.03 million viewers a night, while Megyn Kelly comes in second place with an average of 3.37 million a night. Sean Hannity, Fox News' rising star, has averaged 2.94 million. It's important to note that on some nights, these stars didn't even appear on their shows. This especially rings true when talking about Bill O'Reilly.
The last time O'Reilly hosted The O'Reilly Factor before heading off on a well-earned vacation, Bill talked about Trump's closed-door meeting with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
"As you may know, the nation's largest town falling apart literally with construction projects clogging almost every road in Manhattan, beggars all over the place and a defiant mayor who says he will not cooperate with the federal government on illegal immigration. Something he told Mr. Trump today," O'Reilly angrily said before showing a video clip where de Blasio says that NYC and other cities will do all they can to protect their residents and make sure that families are not torn apart.
Bill O'Reilly then handed the segment over to Fox News correspondent Doug McKelway, who said that the mayor was not surprised to see dozens of TV cameras and 25 reporters because de Blasio wanted people to know he will fight Donald Trump tooth and nail on the issue. However, de Blasio did tell reporters that the talk was productive, and he realizes that the ball is now in Donald Trump's court.
Megyn Kelly has dealt with the issue of illegal immigration on The Kelly File this month, but Kelly seemed more interested in seeing if Donald Trump would follow through on his promise to pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton.
"For months on the campaign trail, Mr. Trump attacked his rival for conducting the highly classified business of the United States over a private, unsecured email server — all while she was Secretary of State," Kelly said at the very beginning of her show this past Tuesday.
