The home of Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity may be getting less love from Republicans, according to a new study.  The Fox News Channel has dropped off the list of the top 10 best-perceived brands among Republicans, said research firm YouGov , which interviewed more than 200,000 people over eight weeks, and filtered their responses by party affiliation. This comes after the network has topped the YouGov list for the last three years, the only prior years in which the company has conducted this survey.

Well, that didn't take long. Just one month after taking over her new 9 p.m. time slot at Fox News Channel, Megyn Kelly has the No. 2 show on cable news. "The Kelly File" averaged 2.2 million total viewers for October, behind only "The O'Reilly Factor" (2.8 million), according to Nielsen. (The ratings measurement company ends its month a little sooner than most people's calendars do.) Kelly, a longtime anchor for Fox News, took over the 9 p.m. slot from Sean Hannity, who moved to 10 p.m. as part of a broader network shake-up.

It's time now for another media mini-feud! This bout features two media personalities who are no strangers to duking it out in public: CNN host Piers Morgan and Fox News contributor (and former politician) Sarah Palin. This skirmish began when Morgan tweeted a link to an article on the satirical site Daily Currant on Thursday. The story claimed that Palin, during an appearance on the Fox News program "Fox and Friends," talked about the ways in which Jesus Christ celebrated Easter during his lifetime.

Are pay-TV distributors DirecTV, Time Warner Cable and Charter Communications looking to create their own version of Aereo -- the start-up that transmits the over-the-air broadcast television signals to consumers via the Internet? That's what a story from Bloomberg suggests. The motivation is simple enough. If the cable and satellite guys can come up with their own way to distribute broadcast signals to consumers without having to pay broadcasters, it could save them a bundle of money in so-called retransmission consent fees.

Anyone who's watched "The Daily Show" long enough will have seen plenty of Fox News clips of the perpetually disapproving scowl of Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer. So his appearance as a guest on Wednesday's show had all the promise of one of Stewart's classic faceoffs. Remember Jim Cramer? However, the debate between Stewart and Krauthammer, though spirited, was reasonable and respectful above all things. And because of that, both were allowed to make good points for their cause, absent the sound and fury of the modern media circus.

In her second day as host of the new 9 p.m. prime-time news magazine "The Kelly File," she averaged 2.8 million viewers and easily won the 25-54 demographic, according to Nielsen. In both categories, the show beat the combined competition from CNN and MSNBC.

Legendary neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, professor emeritus at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and a critic of President Obama's health care reform efforts, has been hired by Fox News as a contributor. Carson rose to prominence in medical circles when he successfully separated conjoined Siamese twins in 1987. In 2008, President George W. Bush awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In recent years, Carson has also built a following for his political views and attacks on political correctness.

Bill O'Reilly, you have a new contender for the cable-news throne: Megyn Kelly.  "The Kelly File" -- with former daytime host Kelly carving up the issues of the day -- delivered big returns for Fox News Channel in its second outing at 9 p.m. Tuesday, according to Nielsen.  Kelly rounded up 2.8 million total viewers, which dominated the time slot over MSNBC's Rachel Maddow (1.1 million) and CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" (590,858). That was a huge increase over the 2.1 million "Kelly File" saw for Monday's premiere.  ON LOCATION: Where the cameras roll         More important, Kelly was within hailing distance of the man who has dominated cable news for more than a decade: O'Reilly (3 million)

Fox News unveiled its new hi-tech newsroom set, called the Fox News Deck, in a video posted Monday. And among the new bells and whistles are what appear to be giant iPads that the staff will use to gather news. Actually, the large 55-inch touchscreen monitors are what Smith calls BATS (big area touchscreens), and they're just one of the flashy gadgets the new set will feature when it debuts with "Shepard Smith Reporting" on Monday afternoon. Smith also revealed a Wii-like controller wand that lets him manipulate the images on the set's 38-foot video wall.

Fox News Channel star Megyn Kelly is bright, beautiful and blunt when she needs to be. Just ask Karl Rove. Her willingness to take on all-comers, even conservative hero Rove - as she famously did on election night last November - is one reason Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes has promoted Kelly to a plum prime-time perch. On Monday, the network's 17th anniversary, "The Kelly File" premieres between the opinion-heavy programs of the network's conservative firebrands Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.
