Piers Morgan To New Rival Megyn Kelly: ‘Bring It On’

CNN’s Piers Morgan was quick to respond to the news that Megyn Kelly will reportedly become his new competition when she returns to Fox News this fall after taking maternity leave. “Bring it on,” Morgan wrote on Twitter, with a link to the Drudge Report’s exclusive reveal.

Morgan regularly loses in the ratings to his current 9pm rival on Fox, Sean Hannity, and perhaps he sees the shake-up as an opportunity to gain some ground on the prime time newcomer Kelly.

At least one of Kelly’s Fox News colleagues thinks she’ll do just fine in her new role on the network. The Five’s Eric Bolling also tweeted out the news to his followers, labeling it “bad news” for Morgan and MSNBC’s 9pm anchor Rachel Maddow.

But if Megyn Kelly’s move means “bad news” for Morgan and Maddow, what does it mean for Hannity?
