  • Thankful

    The Kelly File was watched by more Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54 last night than Piers (CNN), Maddow (MSNBC) and Dr. Drew (Headline) COMBINED! I, for one, am very thankful for a clear thinking individual heading a program that isn't in the bag for this administration. Obviously, there are many other young Americans who agree.
