It's program ranker time. FNC had 9 of the top 10 shows on cable news in November, with Bill O'Reilly averaging an impressive 2,552,000 viewers. H&C was #2, Greta was #3, Shep was #4 and Hume was #5.

CNN's Larry King was #7. He averaged 1,012,000 viewers in November. Notably, NewsNight with Aaron Brown averaged 795,000 viewers in November before it was yanked off the air; Anderson Cooper 360 averaged 632,000.

The #1 show on MSNBC was Countdown with Keith Olbermann. It averaged a strong 462,000 viewers for the month, beating HLN's top program, Nancy Grace. Hardball was MSNBC's #2 show, and Rita was #3.

Thank You Mike.

That's a Levin Line.

I enjoy not watching screwball on screwball with special guest screwball.

Indeed!

I think Mathews is mixing his LSD with pure-grain alcohol... he's as mad as a hatter!

If Matthews head got any fatter, his head would generate it's own orbit.

Are you military? Where are you from? I have a niece with a son named Mike who is in Iraq.

I wasn't military when I went over to Iraq. I went as a Contractor with General Dynamics.

I am from Ohio.

Hey Mike,

Levin just mentioned the news ranking post.

I'm sure our policy in Iraq should be formed based on the rantings of nitwits on 24th rankied cable programs.

This is the reason that I pay no attention to polls. The ratings can't be manipulated because they're about money advertisers will pay for time on these shows and are an accurate measure of what people believe and what people want.

Hope all is well with you. Coincidentally, my niece lives in Ohio, but her son is currently out of Fort Campbell, but in Iraq.

Yeah everything is great. I missed the holidays last year so this year I am living it up a bit :)

That's cool that your grand-nephew is in the 1-0-worst :). I am certain he is doing the job and make you all proud.

My dad was a Rakkasan back in the early 80s....

yeah man.

If you don't fight for yourself, you shouldn't expect anyone else to do it for you.

Place like FR and the internet in general give us a big time club to use against the MSM.....

He might as well bring Howie Dean on as co-host... it would give him a chance to towel-off the drool from his lips & chin. The whole hour is nothing but falsehoods, heresay and outright, moonbat-fantansy.

Thanks for whatever you do over there. Fifty years ago I served in that part of the world (Libya) for a year and a half, so I have some sympathy for you.

H&C was #2, Greta was #3, Shep was #4 and Hume was #5.

Totally 100% bass ackwards from content.

I for one will be happy when MSNBC is yanked from the list of networks. There isn't one show on that network worth a damn.

Maybe the FNC owner can buy another news outlet.

Re: . ..The #1 show on MSNBC . . .

It's like the best violin player on the Titanic.

In the end, the ship is sinking, with cWithy Mathews in the wheelhouse.

Donny Deustch-bag?

LOL

That's what I call him, but I use a Tony Soprano voice when I say it.

This jerk sandbagged Bernard Goldberg on his program.

I don't care if he's worth $200 million.

Greasy + Bad Tan + Dumb = Donny Deustch-bag

I agree. Brit Hume has always been #1 in this household (although lately my husband likes Jim Cramer's "Mad Money" at 6pm on CNBC).

This convinces me that if we were able to purchase our cable channels a-la-carte, as has been suggested, then MSNBC would have to fold within six months.
