I can't believe that many watch Greta. More likely the TV is just left on...

The 'Cable News Race' is no longer a race. The only uncertainty left in what the se numbers will be is how low Chrissy and Olberman will be.

"Come on man, use new lines for each one"

It's easy to read either way. Seriously people.

"It's easy to read either way. Seriously people."

Maybe for you, but what is easiest for your audience?

No, each and every night, Greta gives a teaser during "Hannity & Colmes" that promises a major break in the Aruba missing person case. Every night it turns out to be another disappointment. It is slimy promotion, that's all.

There are RADIO STATIONS (albeit with strong signals) who have more listeners than the nationwide MSNBC people.

This is not a rhetorical question. Who is MSNBC TUCKER? 296,000 viewers? my God there are local shows in major metropolitan areas with more viewers.

I wonder what Hume's numbers would be if he were in a later time slot...

I'd like to see Brit Hume doing a show during O'Reilly's slot.

His numbers would be huge! Many folks (not me) are watching their local evening news during his time slot. If they flopped him and Shep, the would numbers would grow!

I do not follow these ratings too closely, but it seems to me CNN is gaining some ground against H & C and Greta.

I cannot understand why people watch O'Reilly.

He's a humorless putz.

Thanks for the link. I know just enough HTML to be dangerous. Now I'll know enough to be REALLY dangerous.

Partially true. I leave my XM on Fox News most evenings. Greta is on around bedtime ... and her prattling puts me to sleep.

Does anyone like John Gibson's 'The Big Story'? I listen every afternoon and I like it.

Maybe it's just me, but I find them all insufferable.
