Wouldn't it be a kick if Lou Dobbs went over to FOX?

Wow. If I'm reading this correctly LarryKing...LARRY KING fer Lord's sake!...kis the highest rated segment on CNN!

Also note that a now show for Glenn Beck although he may be too new to show. I wouldn't be surprised if he crashes and burns though. He's spread himself too thin IMO.

Yeah, that is pretty cool! But O'reilly is on at a really ackward time. 5pm is when people are trying to get home, so I'd imagine the rerun numbers would be pretty high.

Cable still has such a teeny, tiny percent of viewers. I remember getting a call from Nielson asking if the network I was working for was "off the air" because it was only registering 2 million viewers...and that was daytime.

Wow Fox is killing them in every time slot. I'd only ever seen the prime time numbers. Fox is way ahead around the clock, and not just from 8-11PM.

Which is irrelevant because we are not comparing cable to anything BUT other cable shows. If you want to compare apples to oranges how about the fact that the Top 5 Conservative Talk Radio hosts reach more people each day then any of the nightly news casts?

From the looks of the ratings it seems Rita Cosby going to MSNBC was a good move for FNC.

Neil Cavuto (FOX's finance pro) is a real conservative, not smug jerk like Lou Dobbs.

So now we know what Keith Overbite and "Countdown to no ratings" was talking about when he said he was the third highest rated show. On MSNBC, he was 3rd. Overall he was 26th.

MSNBC - so bad even the libs don't watch.

I was responding to your claim..."Why We're Winning". Only a fraction of Americans have cable and only a fraction of them watch the news. Obviously the FOX News numbers don't hurt, but I'd give more credit to talk radio.

Actually based on viewers he is 5th. He has less then Scarborugh and Matthews as well as Imus then their is their tops show "MSNBC Investigates". I have NO idea where Keith slimebucket gets the "3rd" claim from. I guess it is wholly based on whatever the number in the 3rd column is. Based on the other two rankings he comes in dead last.

I dunno, I kinda like his economic positions, and certainly agree with his stance against illegal immigration. Says here that he's a "self-described "lifelong Republican" who has become disenchanted with the policies of George W. Bush's administration." And there's usually an issue here or there that many FReepers disagree with the President on.

Dobbs on FNC? Sure, get rid of Greta!

Dobbs is a big Goverment Socialists. He is merely lying about being "A life long Republican" same way the DNC Seminary Callers do. Either that or he is a "Life Long Rupublican in the same way Rino's Senators Chaffe and Specter are "Republicans." It is just part of his marketing spin. Don't fixate on the Anti Illegal ranting and he is pure 100% Howie Dean big Govt Liberal on every other issue.
