As I understand it, the 25-54 demographic is red meat for advertisers.

CNN has the most annoyingly earnest anchors I’ve ever seen

Looks like Hannity is pulling a Leno -— soaring in the ratings just before getting axed...

If Hannity is so hot why is Megyn taking his place. ... Otoh maybe she’s joining him Not as liberal as Colmes but can certainly play devils advocate well.

Hannity on top at 9pm? Must be a lot of bored people out there at that time.

They could team up Kelly & Hannity, but my bets are on Hannity taking over the 7 pm time slot from Shepherd Smith. Smith is a weak lead in to O’Reilly, he loses a quarter million viewers from Bret Bair. Hannity works long hours with both his TV and radio program, and a 7 pm slot would get him out of there 2 hours earlier, so there might be a personal issue for him. Also, his huge numbers suggest that he would hold onto Bair’s audience PLUS add his own viewers and bring O’Reilly and Kelly and even stronger lead in audience.

If that’s the thinking, and if it works, then Fox will not just dominate, it will subjugate.

Aren't the television shows taped a few hours in advance? I never got the impression that they were live...

Hannity is very good. He’s repetitive at times, but his memory is like a trap, and his ability with a group is truly professional.

Besides that, he is the remaining consistent conservative in the Fox line-up. He might not be perfect, but he is consistent. My vote would be for keeping him. Otherwise, it says that there’s a sinister back-channel going on at Fox.

FWIW, I just watched Sarah Palin on Fox about an hour ago and she was shockingly honest. Said Chris Christie isn’t a real conservative. Said that in terms of privacy that she’s on team Rand. She said Snowden shouldn’t be attacked since he was the one who revealed the NSA violation of the 4th amendment. Said death panels are reality and the naysayers are ignorant.

It was Sarah Palin unplugged. What a leader!

I currently do not watch FNC at night.

Too routine.

If Hannity goes earlier, and the shows get more interesting, I’ll watch.

Hannity I want. The other evening shows, I am not so enthused about.

I assumed they were live, but you could well be right. I just don’t know.

It might be a combination because my memory says I’ve seen them react to breaking news on a few occasions.

I think the total news audience even with the broadcast networks is something like 25 million a night.

Low info for real, isn’t it?

I don’t stay up late enough to watch the Fox prime time shows, but I get up early enough to watch them repeated in the early morning hours (Best time of the day).

We have enough socialist democratic frauds in this country already, the last thing we need is an imported British Twit trying to lecture us out his rear end about what is happening in this country. Losing to Ricky in the ratings should be the writing on the wall for this little limey.

I for one tune out Hannity’s radio thing-ie. He’s playing with black callers when he should shut them down with the facts when they call in to defend Trayvon using the propaganda fed to them by black media repeating what CNN, NBC, ABC and others.

Zimmerman was doing his job. His job was to keep the area, which is “gated” and posted as private, secure. He had every right to question anybody, white,red blue or black he felt acted suspiciously. The facts are he didn’t even do that. He obeyed police instructions and was returing to his vehicle when he was attacked.

Instead he lets these callers go on and on with their conjectures. He doesn’t even ask where they got their information from.. Worse yet he doesn’t ask why do they think they are being given the wrong information.
And then ask them. What has Obama done for them ?

I was disappointed with all of the media in terms of the Zimmerman trial and aftermath. The truth could only be found on the web and coming out of the mouth of Mark O’Mara and Don West.
However, the ONE show that approached telling the story was a group led by Hannity. In that particular episode a few speakers brought up the subject of Martin’s history. Two of those were black females and the third a white male. Then, of course, there is Ted Nugent who fears God and just about no one else unless it’s his wife. :>)

I don’t understand how the demographics works. How can 35-54 year olds be in 2 categories?

It’s really telling when Piers hits his highest Ratings when he is interviewing a 19 Year Old High School Junior who can’t read Cursive and thinks that White Hispanic Men are Gay Rapists.

Some could say “that’s retarded Sir”.

It’s just for comparison with itself on previous dates.

You can look at the number of gathered animals at the barn for each evening: (1) chickens, (2)cows, (3) horses, (4)dogs , and (5)cats. You can look at them separately, or you can look at them grouped in a variety of combinations and each combination might give you info you want to use.

Chickens, cows, and horses might tell you how much grain to get. Cows, horses, and dogs might tell you how much bedding floor straw you might need.

25-54 might tell you the mindset of the more active. 35-54 might tell you the mindset of the active who probably also have money.

Trayvon’s sainthood is incidental to the issue. The issue was and is Zimmmerman was legally doing his job when he was attacked. It is a diversion to take focus off what would be a cut and dried issue. But it does demonstrate how far socialists will go sanctifying Zimmerman’s attacker with MSM support to create a crisis. That is designed to deter a political issue which is going unchallanged. And that political issue is;

They needed an issue to discourage any pending House investigations which could lead to some serious stuff like impeachment. So this was conjured up but in the meantime innocent whites and “hispanics” are being murdered and seriously injured as the political opposition plays games.
