Megyn Kelly Gives LIVE a 6-Month High

By Chris Ariens 

Just a few hours after anchoring Fox News’s election night coverage, Megyn Kelly was Kelly Ripa‘s co-host on LIVE. The pairing gave the syndicated show its best performance in six months, since Friday, May 13, which was Michael Strahan‘s final day on the show.

With a 3.5/9 in Households and a 1.7/9 in the Women 25-54 demo, LIVE was the No. 1 syndicated talk show outdelivering Dr. Phil and Ellen.

In the New York market, when LIVE airs at 9 a.m. on WABC, the show topped the third hour of NBC’s Today show as well as a special third hour of CBS This Morning.
