“I think it shows who Megyn is,” says Shine. “She’s a great broadcaster and she’s a great journalist. I think it also shows some of our competition and some of our skeptics what we do over here. I always say a lot of people who don’t like us don’t watch us.”

Shine also addressed Fox’s median viewer skewing older in age.

“It’s happening to most everyone in television, and in terms of the economics of it, we don’t buy and sell on that data,” Shine tells THR. “We buy and sell on the demo, and we’re still clearly winning the demo race among our competitors — combined in some cases. Is it something we keep our eye on? Absolutely. But it’s not something I currently go home and lose sleep over.”
