In her first full month co-hosting Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends, Elisabeth Hasselbeck averaged 1,226,000 viewers, with 289,000 of them in the 25-54 news demo. That’s up 16% in total viewers and 22% in the demo compared to third-quarter 2013. Last week was Fox & Friends’ highest-rated demo this year, excluding broadcasts in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Same morning Hasselbeck’s stats are being reported, lots of press picking up report in celeb gossip site Radar that Jenny McCarthy, who took a chair at ABC’s daytime talker The View when Hasselbeck exited, may not be testing so well with that show’s audience. Good to be Elisabeth Hasselbeck this morning.
