Skip to comments.Michael Savage Boasts of Trouncing Rival Hannity in Major Markets: [Hannity is] a ‘Republican Hack’
Posted on 03/26/2014 2:24:54 PM PDT by AdamBomb
"According to Nielsen Audio Metro data, Savage at least doubled Hannitys average quarter-hour (AQH) rating in two major markets (New York and Dallas) and at least tripled his rating in Chicago and Savages hometown of San Francisco:"

Savage haters to chime in in 3....2....1.
(Though he gets many things right.)
Hannity is only useful in the two months before an election.
He’s a condescending pompous ass. Trouble is, which one am I talking about?
I don’t really care for Savage, but Hannity is an idea whose time has long since ended. On radio AND TV. I’d love to see FNC put Greta back in her old time slot and let Hannity retire to Florida or wherever.
I love Savage.....he’s a throwback. There is nobody like him. I’ll dearly miss his shows someday when he retires.
Hannity? He vomits out the GOPe talking points. I can’t take it.
I’m not a Savage “hater”, though I will say that at least when I listen to Hannity I don’t end up with a headache, can’t say the same for Savage.
I like them both for different reasons...and Rush and Levin, also, a lot!
Why these guys feud is beyond me.
Millionaires, on the right side of politics, family men...
You never see Libs cannibalize themselves.
Sean should rename his radio program to:
Hack Hannity and the Karl Rove Sidekicks.
In the DC market hannity was move to an obscure low-power am station... I can barely get the station in fairfax city
I agree somewhat, but he rails on McCain and McConnell too.
Bill Bennett, Mark Davis, Mike Gallagher, Hannity, Medved really don't do anything for me. Prager's ok, but he's on when I'm at work.
Their most conservative talker is Jon David Wells, but they bumped him to 8PM to midnight.
Wallbanger has to be fairly concerned by these ratings. He was thinking January would be bad but that he’d improve in February as people searched for his new station.
The opposite is happening. Savage’s share is increasing from January (i.e. more people are finding him.) Hannity’s numbers are decreasing or staying flat at best.
Hannity can be so boring. Haven’t seen or listened to him in 6 months. I don’t miss him at all.
I don’t listen to anyone regularly, but I absolutely don’t listen to people that give me a headache and Savage is on that list.
The move from ABC to WOR didn't help Hannity at all. I don't know if he thought everyone would follow, or at least figure that Rush as a lead-in would keep his ratings, or what.
Now I'm curious what Curtis & Kuby's ratings are like in Rush's old slot.
We don’t get Savage here, so I can’t comment on his style or positions.
I congratulate him on his success, But why does he need to trash others who probably agree with him 95% of the time? seems a bit arrogant and classless.
Actually I don’t mind Hannity. I really don’t watch him unless it happens I turn on the tv at his time slot, though.
But I can’t figure out why he had Palin on so much when she was out of office, not running for anything and hadn’t really much to say. Don’t get me wrong, I like Palin but it’s supposed to be a news show. She was asked on over and over again for opinions.
I actually thought he was having an affair with her at one point, because it made so little sense to me.
Hannity is Karl Rove’s bi tch.
Savage is a complete jerk.
That being said, Hannity is so utterly boring I’d rather listen to the local guy now.
Every show of Hannity is Hannity talks to his staff, Hannity talk to Jamie Dupris, who has nothing of relevance to say ever, and Hannity talk to various idiot liberals.
No reason to listen at all.
I am no fan of Savage, but yeah, Hannity comes across as a smarmy hack who is willing to drink with the enemy.
Join the fun. Savage ping!
Why does Mark Levin hate Savage? I have heard Levin mention Wiener Nation a few times with the same kind of vitriol usually reserved for Harry Reid.
Bring back Steve Malzberg!
Zactly! They are all wearing the same uniform, IMO, and there guns are pointing in the same direction, except when some of them trash others.
Hannity is a must for the tenderfoot republicans, the newbies and the Joe-lunch-bucket folks. I am glad he is the talking-points republican. And, if Hannity is beer, then Savage is whiskey. Rush is meat and potatoes, and so on. Whatever! To me, it is not an "either or" decision.
I find Hannity and Rush pretty much unlistenable. Levin is a little more bearable.
I’m mostly conscious of what I’m NOT hearing: NOTHING about Obama’s phony biography. Nothing about the forged documents.
I don’t care that “we aren’t going to get him out of office on the basis of those things!” Obama is a Marxist Muslim anti-Christian anti-Semite. His whole bio is a lie. His documents are forged. I want it talked about because it’s the truth.
I haven’t heard savage in years but he was always interesting. Listening to him though always gave me the image that he was lying on a couch and someone was nearby taking notes and expected to give advice and tweak his prescriptions after each show.
I hadn’t seen/heard Hannity in over a decade but he always seemed like someone who could easily be replaced with software.
I listen to El Rushbo from 12-3pm then shut the radio off when Hannity comes on. Never cared for that stupid radio assistant of his, the one called Flipper. She would always brag about taking her young children to the New York homosexual parades, so they could understand diversity. That was enough for me ever listening to Sean.
I like your analogies.....spot on “Hannity is a must for the tenderfoot republicans, the newbies and the Joe-lunch-bucket folks. [snip] And, if Hannity is beer, then Savage is whiskey. Rush is meat and potatoes, and so on.”
I for one am happy that Hannity was knocked out of his DC time slot, I had stopped listening to him over a year ago, same with his TV show.
IMHO - Sean is nothing more then a liberal Karl Rove republican.
Good bye Sean....
Savage gave the maximum amount in donations to Democrat Jerry Brown. The only wallbanging hack is Savage-Weiner.
Republican Hack? Well Savage, you are a libtard plant.
I used to listen to him. I try from time to time but about 98% of when I do 1) he’s not there, 2)talking yet again about how he got sick eating in San Fran restaurants (doesn’t this schtick get old?), or 3) rambling about nothing and hawking old books.
Wow I guess you haven't heard him? He's actually worse, but you would have to hear him to believe how much so. I don't like Hannity at all and in my market area they don't compete but between either of them I would chose silence. But Savage is as bad as it gets really, IMO.
No bias there at all. How much does Savage pay you?
my great friend Andrew Breitbart told me how sean constantly asked for show ideas...he didn’t have a unique idea of his own...sean has a boring whiney voice like the bimbos ann coulter and her “drudge is my friend” friend oreilly co host...
sav has a great broadcast voice and is exceptionally smart like Rush...hammity is a bore...
Ratings. Jack Benny and Fred Allen made a living off a radio feud back in the day. All aspects of the media are commercial sponsored entertainment and the talent involved are no different than burlesque acts. If they manage to expose what the liberal masters of the network news don't want anyone to hear and know it's practically an accident and since 99% of the people who listen or watch are already part of the Conservative choir there's very little actual persuasion going on. The purpose, for all of them, is to sell advertising. If they fail at that they're not on the air. Even (Pubic H)Air America went under when it couldn't generate an audience and make money.
Savage is a phony? I can’t stand to listen to him. There is something about his past that sows doubt about his sincerity. I don’t care enough to search it out. Levin is the real deal. Hannity, I like but last shows I listened to he went on and on with his staff about nonsense. I don’t know why he thinks we want to hear from the liberal women that work for him. Not interesting. I guess he is tied to Rove because of Fox News but I can’t stand Rove. I wish Hannity still followed Rush on WBAP in case I forget to change channels. But I tune my internet radio to Moody Radio South and listen to more interesting and uplifting talk radio. Janet Parshall is great.
I thought he retired and the Pizza giant toook his place.
And at night they lower the power on the signal to next to nothing.
Savage is more entertaining, even when he’s being stupid. Hannity is probably a nice guy but I can’t listen to him for long as he repeats the same stuff.
Now I change the station after Rush ends because Savage is a self-centered, boring, condescending, blowhard.
I liked Savage but he is the only talk radio personality on the right that makes me miss Hannity. They shifted him from the local blowtorch to one station above the state police traffic alert.
I just turn it off after Rush anyways, nothing else needs to be said.
Me either, but the other night he actually had two segments that were not GOP talking points and MH-390... and it was good. Then he went back to the same old, same old...
He better change- has the same stupid guests on Radio and Cable... Tired of Juan, tired of Beckel, Coulter is damaged goods... asks the same questions over and over, just different guest.... surprised how lazy in originality Hannity is..
I can’t stand either one of them, but at least Hannity has a pleasant enough voice for radio, something Savage does not.
As far as Weiner goes, he is unreliable as a conservative, and often sides with liberals. He appeals to people who get wood from listening to a tough sounding New Yorker. Fact is, Weiner is a fratricidal purse-swinging bed-wetter.
It’s a sign of weakness.
I figured out Weiner, aka Savage in less than a week. Here is a guy with a fake name, constantly name calling conservatives in an attempt to poach listeners.
Weiner is his real name. “Savage” is a name that makes him talk tough.
