    What is happening to Greta, of all people, Larry O is picking up numbers?

  • Ratboy

    the Five got pretty good numbers. Must be all the people going to hear Beckel swear :lol:

  • weinerdog

    @ron300

    Greta is intervewing the same people all the time and too long on conversations. I sometimes switch over to Larry O to hear something wild!

  • Anne Marie

    The Five is an excellent show….good “cast”.

  • Joan

    They all look a little down for a Wednesday? Except O’D he must have had the Chef from the White House on his show!

    Yea they were cooking dinner for some Columbian hooker!

  • Ratboy

    @ Yea they were cooking dinner for some Columbian hooker!

    Hot DOGS with secret service sauce! :lol:

  • Mark

    Erin Burnett needs to be replaced by a test pattern.

  • DGH

    That crazy that Bill’s repeat out performed every show on MSNBC.

  • Joan

    LOL @ Ratboy and Mark

  • Joan

    @ DGH
    Thats a regular nightly thing ! Hannity tops on his midnight repeat also!

  • usnretiredx2

    @Ratboy

    “art work with you and get rid of it”

  • usnretiredx2

    @Ratboy
    It is long gone. Called the delete button

  • usnretiredx2

    @Ratboy

    Thanks for leaving the light on and the door open. To bad it was the closet door and light. Took me 10 minutes to get out.

  • usnretiredx2

    As for the Art work, you will not even catch me putting smileys side by side.

    But it is all AppleStinx fault. He told me how to do the smiley thing to start with.

    I have been taking lessons from our leader :twisted:

  • UpAndOver

    Is your Cable News Anchor a Conservative or a Liberal ?

    If a conservative doesn’t like the host, he switches channels.
    Liberals demand that those they don’t like be shut down.

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    Like Al shapton or not, he puts up good numbers. He doesn’t beat FOX but he hangs in there almost always second in his time slot.

    Make my day. How; cancel Hannity. I say that he is perhaps the most over rated person on cable news.

  • Coffee Steve

    I go to the Tuesday board, sit down, look around, no ones there, I wait and wait, then the maid walks in and I ask her where you guys were, she said Columbia checking out the sites :wink:

    I left a message you for in tuesday

  • Ralph Hahn

    @HRJ: >>> Make my day. How; cancel Hannity. I say that he is perhaps the most over rated person on cable news. <<<

    You're above statement is ALMOST correct. It SHOULD read: "…he is perhaps the SECOND rated person on cable news."

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ralph Hahn
    he is perhaps the SECOND rated person on cable news.”

    Not to mention that hannity and O’Reilly by Monday will be signing a multi-million dollar contract for many years.
