Ask Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly how her new prime-time program will differ from the edgy news show she had been hosting in the afternoon and she says that “it’s going to be dark out.”

The joke has a serious point. Don’t expect Kelly to turn into a fire-breathing partisan because she has more exclusive real estate.

“If you watch O’Reilly, you hear a lot about what Bill O’Reilly thinks,” she said. “Sean Hannity, same thing. But you’re not going to hear what I think.”

The Kelly File is the linchpin to the first overhaul of Fox’s primetime lineup since 2002, a century in television time. Starting tonight, Hannity moves back an hour to 10 to make room for Kelly at 9, Greta Van Susteren shifts to 7 and Shepard Smith becomes a roving news anchor making appearances throughout the evening.

Kelly said she hasn’t been pressured to make changes for the move into the evening, where a larger audience is usually available.

“I’ve never wanted to be an opinion host, and Roger Ailes hasn’t wanted me to be an opinion host,” she said. “I don’t think I’d be very successful anyway. I’m not an ideologue, and I think you have to be successful in a primetime opinion-based show. I think I’m too moderate and reasonable.”

before we all hear the rants of the liberals I advise them to go look at her career before they make fools of themselves
