"For one week beginning at 3:00 PM today"
I don't think it works that way - they don't have a "meter" to tell them how many people are tuning in at any given time.
It's done with "ratings", i.e. surveys...i.e. polls...and we all know how reliable they are.
There are only certain times during the year (excepting internal polls, which are naturally skewed) when they are taken.
The only thing that will affect them immediately is emails and letters. Now if you really want to get their attention, tell them what you think about them, and then "cc" CNN, ABC, CBS, and NBC/MS-NBC.
They don't want their competition knowing that their "fan base" is upset...especially right now.
And while your at it, please tell O'Riley, Sean, and the rest to let their damn guests finish answering the questions they ask, and stop talking over each other. This doesn't work with human hearing with all the voices coming from the same source...you can't single out a voice by direction like you can in a crowded noisy room...it turns into gibberish. That's usually when I change the station and watch the Game Show Network.

(Let's sit back and watch the show - popcorn anyone?)
Great Idea about the “cc”!!!! I’m on it.
"And while your at it, please tell O'Riley, Sean, and the rest to let their damn guests finish answering the questions they ask"
Oh please I'm sick of that kind of journalism. If a guest is lying or spinning, INTERRUPT THEM. They have no duty to let someone spread lies on their network.
If they do it the way you suggested, journalists might as well just tape record their questions, play them one by one, hit stop when the question finishes, and sit there like a knot on a log.
