Long Term Trend of O'Reilly vs. Olbermann TV Ratings:
We have data since late November, 2007 but using that as a "start" point for a linear trend as we did previously seemed arbitrary. The trend lines above are 20 day (4 week) moving averages. I'm not sure I'll stick with that period, it might be too short, but that's what I'm going with for now.
