Talkers Audience Chart: Savage Increase Audience, Others lose
Talkers Magazine ^

Posted on 05/07/2014 7:39:22 PM PDT by scott55

Savage is gaining listeners while Rush, Sean, Beck are all losing a bit. This months Talkers chart has Savage up from 5 million to 5.5, Rush down from 14 to 13.50, Hannity down from 13.25 to 12.75, Beck and levin down from 7.50 to 7.25.

KEYWORDS: talkradio
Talkers numbers are not accurate, but it is some indication of which direction it is going. Last month Hannity's show spokesperson said that Sean has an audience of 11 million.

I wonder how they quantify ratings/listener numbers for radio.

Note that this is “analysis” and “estimates”, not actual data.

Savage has an outsized ego for his mind and abilities. He also has a temper that is barely controlled. As I think about it now, his personality's a lot like 0bama’s.

Sean, well he's smartened up a bit from when his shows would only repeat everything he'd just heard Rush say.

Rush is the best, and Mark Steyn and Walter Williams are his best substitutes. These people have brains, but checked egos and are each funny, to boot.

Savage and Hannity are not worth the price you pay to hear them.

I have a hard time believing Savage is not faking his so-called conservatism. He is so over the top and donated to Moonbeam and lives in San Fransicko.

If you listened to a show for 15 hours a week in the old days, they would say you were 15 listeners.

I hope they don’t still do that

I have to agree with you. I DVR every evening news pundit program on FOX, but not O’Reilly and Hannity. Savage no longer airs, or else he is on at such time when I never hear of him.

Hannity now repeats his own assertions about himself ad nauseum, as parrot s do. “I”, “I”, “I” has become first a distraction, then you begin to count the damn things, and finally you just run from even the sound of his voice.

Too bad, too. Sean is a handsome person, talented and passionate. But, no more for me anyway.

Hannity still has that tendency to turn almost every story in the news into a story all about him. Sometimes that is helpful, other times, it seems indulgent. Why does he even need to be on that much? Sean, already has his own show on Fox TV. For most, that would be a dream come true. Maybe he’s deeply in debt, or has kids in private colleges.

I believe Hannity to be an honestly nice guy. I just don't see that he's got a lot going on “up there.”

Savage is, well, a walking, talking paradox—which he believes helps make him superior to each of us, despite his inability to ever enunciate something that could unify his “logic” under one roof (his brain). To his credit, he's that rare “conservative” who finds it perfectly rational to donate to Jerry Brown while promoting animal rights. Sadly, that sort of pretzel reasoning is just the tip of his iceberg.

I could handle Sean a bit more if I had heard 4/5ths less name dropping on his radio show.

Are there really 11 million baboons that have radios?

I remembered the Moonbeam donation, but had forgotten the San Fransisco link.

There’s plenty more with him, similar to those.

It’s sad, because on rare occasions, he can really knock a point out of the ball park.

There are no “actual data” for AM radio, nor any way of gathering such. It is all applied statistics using a very small sample.

I alternate DVR between all four of the Fox evening shows.

A fairly good laboratory vacuum is apparent most of the time.

How many of his listeners are psychologists and psychiatrists just waiting for that final Savage crash? I listened ro him sometimes, but he bounced around topics so much that he seemed like a commercial for “this is your mind off Ritalin”.

the later hour has had an effect on Hannity’s viewership.

UB, I start with Brett Bair, to Greta, to Megan. O’Reilly may have the better hour for ratings, I don’t know, but I don’t watch him or Hannity unless it’s in a walk by. These two can’t even get top tier guests anymore, it’s not just me. :/

There are actual ratings for radio stations, aren’t there, as opposed to this kind of “analysis” that we see from Talkers Magazine?

Mark Belling from Wisconsin is very good, along with Mark Steyn. When Belling and Steyn sub for Rush, I listen.

Mark Levin is solid, as is Glenn Beck, when it comes to learning something, to being instructed in the truth. I’ve learned much from both of these men.

I start with Glenn Beck, Rush, Cavuto, then The Five, Brett Baier, Greta, and then I give it a rest. Then it's on to Mark Levin, as I listen to a download of the previous day's show. Throw in reading Freerepublic, and I'm filled with news, and my head's ready to explode. And on to the next day.

Wow! Hannity is #2‽

He's a good guy, but no way is he #2! I usually hit the button before he finishes his interminable program notes.

Limbaugh is brilliant. Nobody is his equal in scratching those itchy liberal scabs!

Ramsey? Who he?

Levin? Brilliant!

Forget Beck. He seemed hot, but not!

Savage is brilliant, but disturbed. OK in small doses, the occasional sparkling monologue.

Ingraham, Bennett, Prager, Hewitt? All are good!

Man, you are off base big time! I would say that Rush has an outsized ego for his mind and abilities, not Savage. And your assertion that his personality is like Obama's needs some supporting evidence.

I listen to Rush, Savage, and Hannity at times. There is no contest which is the best in terms of intellectual content, piercing analysis, range of interesting topics, and raw emotion. Savage is tops!

Have a nice day!

Savage is gaining listeners while Rush, Sean, Beck are all losing a bit.

That's because not all the Rush/Hannity listeners changed their car radio presets from 770 to 710.

The “ratings” are subjectively assembled utilizing a crafted statistical model that samples less than 0.001% of the market.

They are for advertisers use primarily, thus are aimed at various market niches.

I agree except for Hewett, he is a disinformer at best.

Do you give money to crazy Democrats like he does?

I would love to hear how you reconcile his nuttiness into rational thought.
