1: People watch who they agree with. About 15.5 mil agree with FOX, about 5.5 mil agree with (P)MSNBC, about 2.2 agree with CNN.
2: Ratings drive revenues. Sponsors do not pay a fixed rate for commercials. They pay per 1000 viewers delivered. That means FNC is earning about 3 times what MSNBC is, 7 times what CN is, and FNC has lower fixed costs than either!
3: CNN is no longer even a serious player.
4: Some shows are DOA; Behar, Schuultz, and possibly Cooper and Maddow. King is leaving. Piers will have 90 days to develop and audience.
Well, by golly, I was right. My family is larger than Ms. Behar’s audience!
(I don't watch TV).
I knew she was on "The Spew" with Baba Wawa, but I didn't know she had her own show.
Maybe she needs to shout a little more, to generate some excitement...
It's sad when artists like Al Kooper and B.B. King draw such a small crowd...
OK with all these ratings for a more “fair and balanced” news...why are there so many democrats in this Country?
I just do not get it.
And where is MONEY ROCKS...on the ratings. I LOVE that show more then any other one!
My gym always has some TOTAL CRAP like CNN on. I have complained many times.
If FOX is too controverial for them, I suggested they tune in DISCOVERY or something.
I actually abandoned my treadmill during some whorepie goldbugger scene.
I must have missed the stellar ratings for CNNs Client Number 9?
That is what I was thinking..Spitzer didn’t even make the radar. Expect a few Conservative shows to come on CNN in 2011. They have no other choice.
For whatever reason I don’t enjoy Shep Smith’s program. I always go looking at fox business channel when he shows up.
Drama but no substance in both the show and the host.
Maybe you need to work out somewhere else.
Where’s the pic or Mr. Burns saying Excellent? This is great news.
Wow, O’Reilly milked the Juan Williams thing for all it was worth. He’s sooooo far above everyone else for understanding the average American’s mixture of entertainment and politics wants. Hats off to a guy that I really can’t stand to watch.
OTOH...Obama will want to bailout CNN next. Oh shut my mouth.
What’s also gratifying is the plummet of Hardball down below Ed Schultz. Matthews is 100K below that dolt. I’ll bet he’s having a hissy fit.
I was just thinking about this very thing when I was at the bbq restaurant the other day and they had CNN on on half the tvs and ESPN on the other half. I bet you can easily account for half a million “viewers” nationwide with restaurants, real estate offices, doctor offices, airports, etc where it is playing nonstop...
Next question is how much of fox’s ratings are made up by similar audiences? Don’t see it on in very many public places, tbh...
In the race to the scum-sucking bottom of the sewer, no one can touch Behar. Go, Behar! Burrow deeper!
I've been to three different gyms this year in two different states. No joy.
Whorepie Goldbugger, Baba Wallturds etc. are ALWAYS there.
I just wear earplugs and close my eyes, when possible.
I can’t believe that Beck is lower than Shep Smith. And they just signed Shep up to a new contract. ARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!! Fox needs to get rid of Shep!!!
Send Behar some flowers for being dead last.
I am still a Beck advocate, but his ratings soared when he was focused on picking apart the czars and the seedy characters in ACORN and the administration. Lately, I am less inclined to tune in, as it is just not the same ‘must see’ tv that it was for the first year.
I too, struggle to watch BOR, but can do it for a short period of time and depending on the guest.
Also, not included in that number, was the 2 million that tuned in to watch his 11 PM rerun.
He said the other day that a third of his audience are demonRATs and only 41% are pubbies with the rest being indys.
I don't know if this is still the case but, a couple of years ago the TV's in the clinic and other buildings on a military base in VA (FT. Lee) were all tuned to CNN. I used to get so upset because the news was so slanted against the military. I couldn't understand why they selected CNN...and had signs on all the TV's not to switch the channel. Go figure!
that’s cuz it’s the state-controlled media...duh!
Beck has lost some and one of them is me. I might still watch him now and then, but I think he’s kind of crazy. He’s just a little weird. I also don’t like his agnostic views referring to God a lot. It just has gotten creepy. I loved him when he was funnier and less serious. I appreciate his cause but he’s strange. I think this is why he’s list viewers.
Our local Golds has a bank of TVs, one always tuned to FNC.
Beck has slipped below Hannity?
I might not agree with Mormons, or consider them to be Christians, but I would not consider them as agnostics.
Exactly!!! I loved it when he’d start the show with, “Hello Comrades!” he’s getting to serious, too agnotic religious, etc. He needs to get back to what he was like the first 6 months of his show.
I’m not talking about Becks faith. I’m talking about how he talks about God on the show. He says we need to get back to God, whoever that is to us. That is agnostic. He may be Mormon in his personal faith but what he says on his show is weird to me. When he started saying that I started tuning in less.
Beck is hurt badly by him time slot. 5:00, most Cs are still working or commuting.
Think about it this way. He is on at 5, and killing the 8 and 9 PM MSNBC and CNN shows! The HUT (Homes Using Television) is much larger at 8 and 9, but Beck still beats them!
Yep, the religious overtone is off for me, considering I disagree with what he says about God on his show. He needs to stick to being what he was when he first started the show.
Behar has worked hard to get to last place.
We enjoy Beck when he’s on O’Reilly’s show. The goofy banter between them is hilarious, but we find his own show boring, and end up turning off the TV.
We were dicussing that a few days ago. Of late, I tape Beck..then play it back..watch the parts I want...
Looks like the business shows were not part of this.
It would be interesting to know the standing of the dedicated businees shows.
It's amazing how so many Liberals call into shows like Levin and Limbaugh. Granted I just love to listen to them get absolutely shredded Mark or Rush, it is a riot!
Independent voters watch Fox as well. They voted Democrat in the past. I don't think that they will be doing that again anytime soon.
The Bloviator is still milking it. It really isn't about Juan Williams, it's all for the benefit of BOR himself. O'Reilly is his own biggest shill and he's also the biggest and slimiest self-promoter on TV today.
It was announced yesterday that O'R is going to appear on the View again. It's announced like it's the second coming of Christ. Talk about milking something.
He's boosting the rating of a show that features sick women who are crude and lewd....and political radicals. Phony fights and staged walkouts are just part of O'Reilly's patent medicine travelling road shows. It also appears he feels at ease with and gets some kind of buzz from appearing with grotesque, clownish, vulgar women.
His Abbott-Costello act with Beck leaves one wondering which one is having the worst influence on the other.
I watch O'Reilly as do most other folks because of his regulars like Laura and Morris.....and because there's nothing else on in that time slot.
Beck....I hardly watch anymore. His sermonizing, his pushing Ghandi and MLK down our throats, his moral equivalencies between Pres. Bush and Obama and between the GOP and the DemonRats, and his advocacy of voting third party just days before the upcoming life-and-death election is too much for me.
The elevation and immaculation of pinheads in our culture continues unabated.
Thank God for Rush....the steady hand at the helm and the dependable port in the storm.
Once Beck brought the religious element to the show he was riding a fine line...people became suspecious of his intentions. It’s known the Mormon leadership will put pressure on those of notoriety to eventually push the religious element...and this is what Beck is doing now. But it is usually done deceptively..not quite stating the Mormon doctrine but certainly many references are apparent....Note that he follows the doctrine of encouraging people to “find out for themself” what they believe...and other like comments..a sort of all inclusive appeal.
To any familiar with Mormonism his references are very clear...and the “shadow” symbolism comes across as well.
Seems that the impact of the MSM is greatly exaggerated.
yes, and I’m sure they count the occupancy of all the airports in the nation in this figure as well.
I am not sure why, but every damn airport I’m stuck in, has to have CNN on all the monitors.
If it weren’t for all those ‘captive’ audience members, I’m sure these numbers would be about 25% of those posted.
Not to mention nursing homes. Those poor people.
“Looks like Beck sustained some losses in this period, becoming last on FOX”.
I have almost quit watching Beck; since he began preaching; which at best is pathetic. He is constantly saying there is no difference between Republicans and Demonrats. There is a huge difference since the tea party has been involved and he refuses to acknowledge that. He had three excellent conservatives on the other day, as he acknowledged their conservatism, he treated them like dirt because they were all three Republicans.
Yep. Politics I like, preaching I don’t.
