Trouble in Fox Paradise?

Looks like Klannity is on his way out.

Is Megyn Kelly Pushing Sean Hannity Out of Fox News Primetime?

Aug 12, 2013 4:45 AM EDT

Fox News has been silent, but certainty is growing that rising star Megyn Kelly will grab Sean Hannity’s 9 p.m. slot—and Roger Ailes’s comments about Hannity’s niceness won’t help the fading anchor’s case.

It’s a television truism: as certain as the centrality of the pretty blonde in Roger Ailes’s aesthetic cosmology, so is the primacy of Steve Doocy on Fox & Friends. But Megyn Kelly’s reported rise to the Fox News Channel’s coveted 9 p.m. time slot, by most accounts evicting Sean Hannity after 17 years in primetime, is more likely about something else—the Darwinian dynamics of demographics and ratings.

Let’s stipulate that the 42-year-old Kelly, who was toiling as an associate at a white-shoe Washington law firm when she made the leap to local television news in 2003, is easier on the eyes than the 51-year-old Hannity. He’s not a bad-looking bloke, but in recent sweeps periods—especially after Fox News chairman Ailes choreographed the 2008 departure of Hannity’s liberal-Democrat foil, Alan Colmes, and then, of course, the shocking results of the 2012 presidential election—his stats have been trending downward and older.

Add to the mix Hannity’s contract troubles with Cumulus Radio, which is reportedly ready to drop his afternoon drive-time show from stations in 40 cities, and you’ve got a commodity that is potentially reaching its sell-by date.

Who gives a **** about fox news. Hopefully they will go out of business along with most of the major media channels.
