Highlights of this week’s cable news ratings. Fox continues its run of dominant ratings thanks to growing dissatisfaction with the Keystone Kops administration in Washington, DC. Larry King topped Keith Olbermaniac. Rachel Maddow climbed back into the top ten dispite rather lackluster numbers.

Here’s a look at the top ten cable TV shows for February 11, 2009:

Wow, Glenn Beck is really doing well on Fox. Just behind O’Reilly and Hannity in a non-prime time slot.

Passing gas beats Olberman. Constant complaining about President Bush loses it's luster since he's no longer in office and moonbat audiences don't watch shows that they think everyone else should be forced to watch.

I hope Beck’s numbers will put him at the top one day.

The funny thing is that his show isn’t even in prime time, and he still kicks Olberdork’s butt!

If you beat Olberman too much, do you eventually go blind?

‘Passing gas beats Olberman.’

And yet he beats Cooper. Sucks to be Anderson Cooper. Time to put on a pink tutu, pour yourself a sidecar, put on some Liberace and an old Rock Hudson movie. You settle back in a nice warm tub, cock the hammer back, and put an end to all that pain.

Because there are too many ignorant people (”voters”) in this country. They do not understand what O stands for, but voted for him anyway.

Considering that Beck is on at a ridiculously early hour, he's doing very well. Why doesn't Fox News get a clue and dump Shep Smith? I will NEVER understand why that guy has any show on Fox, let alone a prime-time show. Has someone at Fox programming got a crush on Shep? Seriously, why is he on? Look at the ratings--it doesn't make sense.

What about MSM? I’m sure many people watched that and MSNBC. The real left wing space cadets like watching movies from planet Delta Five on space satellite but there is only six of them but they control all of ACORN. The real power brokers are people like Pelosi and her underground minions that live under San Fran who get the dead to vote. Anybody who watches Obermann and his inner galactic horde of flying monkeys will definitely follow his vote because, if they don’t... Chris Mathews will p** on them. Weird world for leftist TV, for sure.

Those are HUGE numbers for Beck. They should put Beck in Greta’s spot and move her one hour later. I also agree with others that Shep Smith is a joke and should be dumped altogether.

Absolutely! They see him on glossy fashion magazines and think “Hell, he’s black and beautiful and I’ll vote for him because people like Denzil Washington are always on the good side and deserve a break.”

Surprised to see Beck in #3. And no wonder Olbermann has named O’Reilly the “worst person in the world”: O’Reilly is cleaning Olbermann’s clock in the ratings.

I get the feeling that by the next election we'll know more about Sarah Palin than we'll ever know about Obama. His “We won” quote will be the highlight of his administration.

I never watch MSNBC except for brief seconds as I use the remote flipping through stations to get to Fox News. But three weeks into Obambam’s presidency I was flipping through stations again to get to Fox and briefly saw Keith Olberman shouting with that hysterical female look in his face and he was throwing his crumpled balls at the camera and ex-President Bush! I thought to myself, “Hey Keith, I know it’s news to you, but Bush is gone. Isn’t there ONE THING that Obama has done in three weeks that would make you throw a crumpled ball at him?”

;)
