In response to some commenter requests, reader MikeS has produced a chart of the first 50 days of ratings for Headline News' The Joy Behar Show and compared them to the final 50 days of the show she replaced, Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell. So far, Joy's done no better in the ratings.
Remembering the tiff caused by earlier time period vs. time period comparisons, I'm sure this is not intended to imply that the two time periods were exactly the same in terms of ratings potential. They're simply the numbers, interpret them as you will.
The trend lines above are 10 day moving averages.
