At THR's 2014 Most Powerful People in New York Media party, the honoree reveals some of her favorite talk-show hosts and where she gets her news.

Fox News' Bill O'Reilly has bashed Stephen Colbert lately, but his colleague Megyn Kelly said she isn't too familiar with the Comedy Central host's show.

"I don't really watch Colbert, I have to say," Kelly told The Hollywood Reporter at the 2014 Most Powerful People in New York Media party.

In terms of the talk shows she is a fan of, Kelly's a big supporter of the Tonight Show franchise and a certain daytime star.

"If I'm going to turn something on, I like [Jimmy] Fallon a lot -- I've watched a little bit of his new role. I was a big Jay Leno fan, so I was sorry to see him go," she said. "But my number one person that I watch, she's not late night, but in terms of the comedian genre, is Ellen DeGeneres -- love her."

Yet the 2014 THR honoree admitted she doesn't have a ton of time to watch TV.

"I have three children under the age of five; I don't have a whole lot of time for TV," she said, adding that she gets her news online, from the newspaper and from her employer.

"If I'm going to turn on the television, it's going to be the Fox News channel," she told THR.
