Bill O’ Reilly had the most popular cable news show in 2016. Bill’s reign lasted for 16 years. Bill also had the opportunity to interview Donald Trump in February 2016. However, Bill’s reign has come to an end.
Last week, Rachel Maddox had the most popular cable news show. Bill did not even have the number one cable news for his time slot. Chris Hayes had the most popular cable news show for the same time slot.
Not only did Rachel have the number one cable news show, but her show had the most viewers who were between the ages of 25 and 54. The reason that MSNBC has the most popular news show is because it is the only one that does not cater to Trump. Fox News is known for being tied to the Republican party. Donald Trump’s approval rating is also at an all-time low.
On January 17, 2017, Rachel stated that she had a plan to beat Bill O’ Reilly. She stated that she plans to do what the audience likes best. She also stated that the general public understands that most of the promises that Trump has made will not be fulfilled. Additionally, Rachel stated that what the audience thinks matters more than anything else.
