When it was announced that Megyn Kelly would be moving from daytime to primetime at Fox News, CNN's Piers Morgan, who shares the same 9 p.m. ET time slot, tweeted a challenge: "Bring it on," he said.
The ratings are in for Monday. How'd they match up?
Via the New York Times:
At 9 p.m. ... Piers Morgan pulled in only 530,000 viewers, half of [MSNBC host Rachel] Maddow’s audience and just a quarter of Ms. Kelly’s. Mr. Morgan averaged 145,000 in the 25-to-54 group.
