Now Look what You've Gone and Done Roger Ailes

 Rachel Maddow

In an interview published last week, Fox News boss Roger Ailes was asked about the competition and who he thought was good?

Ailes singled out MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and said that he liked her work and thought she was very smart.

Well, it appears the Ailes magic rubbed off on Maddow.

For the week of January 6th, Maddow's show won the demo.

Her showed pulled in 325,000 viewers in the demo, besting Megyn Kelly which had 305,000 demo viewers.

CNN's Piers Morgan was a non factor, his show didn't even reach half the numbers that Maddow got.

Never under estimate the power of Roger Ailes.
