2011 hasn't been a good year for Fox News' Glenn Beck. His eponymous show is down 30% in average viewership, and down 37% among the cable news advertiser target adults 25-54 demo vs. the first quarter of 2010. The 5-6pm competition on both CNN and MSNBC saw increases during that same comparison period.

I don't pay any attention to the various rumors swirling around the show, but the ratings are no rumor.
