    Debate Without Trump Gets Better Ratings Than Last Debate with Trump
    Donald Trump's campaign manager predicted that Thursday night's GOP presidential debate on Fox News would only get "about 2 million" viewers because Trump refused to show up. In fact, "Fox News likely had 11 million to 13 million viewers for the debate," CNN's Brian Stelter reports.

    Thursday's debate ended up getting higher ratings than the the last debate in which Trump participated. "Fox's Trump-less debate had an 8.4 household rating, according to early Nielsen data from so-called metered markets," reports CNN's Stelter. "The most recent GOP debate, televised two weeks ago on the Fox Business Network, had a household rating of 7.4." It's possible that Thursday's debate had up to 2 million more viewers than the January 15 debate that included Trump.

    Reagan skipped the final debate and lost the Iowa caucus.

    I personally wish he would have handled it better. He is aware that Fox is like the other channels and is bed with the "established" candidates, and figured why help them out?

    I still think he could have gone on and had a Fuck you rockstar attitude about this.

    it's sorta odd that ratings seem to matter more than(or at least as much) what was said in these events these days

    i'm officially an old fart I suppose

    Reviewers Call Kelly Clear Winner in Fox News Debate
    Kelly, the Fox News anchor and lightning rod for Donald Trump’s hate, came into Thursday night’s debate under plenty of pressure. Not that you could have sensed it.

    Debuting a sleek, powerful new look, Kelly’s moderation of the Republican presidential debate on Fox News drew widespread accolades, particularly for hard-hitting questions directed at candidates’ positions.

    Salon’s Sonia Saraiya said “It was hard not to root for Kelly, as a reasonable human being who is skeptical of bigotry” during last night’s debate:

    Kelly was both immaculately dressed and immaculately poised, handling Trump’s ratings-threatening absence and the eight obfuscating candidates on stage with a sharpness that outstripped her co-moderators, Bret Baier and Chris Wallace.

    Writing at Fast Company, Mark Sullivan noted that Kelly “won kudos on Twitter for her calm style and smart questions.”

    Some of those questions included a series of video clips, compiling candidates’ past comments on issues–with Kelly asking how those comments square with their positions on the campaign trail. “Kelly had plenty of opportunities to force…candidates into tight ideological spots and to watch in glee as they squirmed—she was in peak form,” wrote Christina Cauterucci at Slate.

    At Vanity Fair, Benjamin Landy said Kelly’s questions “demolished” Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio”

    With no Donald Trump on stage to draw her fire, Fox News host Megyn Kelly took aim at the next two highest-ranking candidates during Thursday’s free-wheeling Republican debate, leveling Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio with a series of devastating video clips that turned their own words on immigration against them.

    Well, then it appears Trump is the big winner, if Kelly "demolished" his two biggest rivals?

    "Crush" is such a strong word.
    I think the extra 2 million viewers were Male.

    People need to consider the "Wonk" factor.

    Debates don't really do anything - especially in the primaries. I can't believe people are wasting time analyzing this.
