Economics 101
Supply vs Demand

There is demand for fair, balanced, and fun morning shows. CBS provides none of the above.

This is really great considering how far they have come! I've been watching Fox and Friends transform for over 6 years! They went from Strip Poker to Geopolitical Politics!!!

That's part of it. Another part is that Fox 'n' Friends doesn't insult your intelligence.

Steve, E.D. and Brian are NOT "celebrities." They are not "smarter than you," people who are "in the know" so you don't have to be.

They are simply well-spoken, thoughtful personalities who do a good job at providing conversation, information and opinion.

They are just like us, and we like that.

I have been watching "Fox and Friends" since the election of GW43 and I have not missed the Today Show at all. Besides E.D. is much easier on the eyes and ears than the perky Katie Curic!

This is wonderful news! I've been watching Fox and Friends for several years now. With the exception of one miserable week when I moved, last November, and it took that long to get my satellite dish hooked up. I liked to die, having to watch Katie and Matt every day. I'd had no idea how amazing bad the networks had become.

Yea - what you said - - and they treat their celebrity guests like normal people. They don't fawn all over them.

E.D.'s pretty cute. This is kind of big news. You'd think at some point the Fox Juggernaut would have to stop and catch it's breath. But like the 3rd ID, it keeps rollin', rollin', rollin'. The liberal media is completely embarassed and flustered. They don't know how to deal with this. They have a fiduciary duty to their stockholders to follow the Fox model in order to maximize profits. But their "consciences" will not allow them to do so. They are therefore putting their own politics and their own tastes above their legal duties. Cf. Knopff turning down all of Ann Coluter's books, which of course are big money makers.

meaning that group of right-wing dimwits is more popular than group of left-wing dimwits. now, if we had some of our best on teevee and that show got good numbers, we'd be saying something.

O'Reilly says this war marked the death of network news, and it needed killing more than Hussein did.

The liberals lose more of their control over the sheeple every day.

Every one has to keep in mind, too, that Fox is still only on some cable systems. Many cable systems still refuse to carry it. And with that incomplete penetration, they're still posting huge numbers. What happens when they finally make it on to all cable systems?

I did not watch but perhaps five minutes of MSNBC and CNN/HNN during this entire conflict.

Who needs 'em?

Brian did a great job with the troops in Kuwait. I loved every report he did that week. I was crying and laughing at the same time.

MSNBC hasn't been that bad. You'd be surprised-- they are really rah-rahing it up. They're almost as in-your-face patriotic as Fox in some ways. I kind of discount it as a deliberate and cynical marketing ploy, but there you go.

There's a guy named Dr. Bob Arnot who is either conservative or is a liberal doing a good impression of an actual fair & balanced reporter. David Bloom was fair too, before he died.

LOL! This is a little off topic, but I went the ABC's web site & they are having a poll on what news you watch. When you get to the site, they ask if you will participate in a survey. When you answer Yes, the first question is did you watch ABC news on Wednesday night. I answered no & they asked what I watched. I responded FOX & the survey ended. It just said, thank you & asked no other questions. Funny!

I think they preempted in hopes of getting confirmation on the mobile weapons lab or that "too hot" to enter facility.

I'm at work in the morning so I never get to see the "Fox Friends" show, but at least FoxNews saves their real "fox" for late-night! And unless I'm mistaken, CNN and MSNBC sucks Greta's dust at 10PM.

The trouble with MSNBC is that you have to take a chance when you tune in......sometimes there's something worthwhile but often it's unbearable. Best to stick to FNC.

Mind you, if I were a Nielsen household, I'd only watch Fox.

But as long as no one knows about it, I feel okay flicking to MSNBC's news coverage.

They broke the Saddam restaurant hit story, for example. (Though Fox had all the details... way too many details, actually, IMHO. Rita Cosby broke the news that we had decrypted Saddam's "Jaguar" phone system, which is a fact I don't think we needed to know.)

My family was able to get the Fox News Channel right after it was established but then we were transferred to Germany for three years. We were force-fed the networks, CNN, CNN International, some MSNBC but no Fox News.

I turned to the internet and Free Republic for my news. So, coming home to the USA and getting Fox News on our cable outlet was in a very small way like being liberated.
