    The Five is dropping off here in the last week.

    I think Ed’s viewers are getting tired of hearing Wisc Wisc Wisc from him! I wonder what his numbers will be next Wed if Walker wins??……………..or will he just take that day off? :twisted:

  • Laurence Glavin

    Rachel and Lawrence were so G-R-E-A-T last night, they SHOULD have garnered more than one million for the first showing. (Ed got one million plus taking into consideration the 11:00 pm showing is prime time on the west coast so putting 8:00 and 11:00 pm, you get that number. I’m not aware what the midnight and 1:00 am showings eastern time add to the Rachel and Lawrence totals.)

  • Coffee Steve

    Soon CNN maybe will stop reporting the numbers, good grief

  • Ratboy

    Ole Sharpie is having a real tough time too! Cant hit a 100 in the key demo. Toooooooo bad! But look how Rachel’s numbers in the key demo JUMP from Ed’s! that does not say much about Ed when you have that many joining as soon as he is done! I wonder how many go from OReilly to Rachel because Hannity’s key drops a lot also. No one can hold OReilys audience because he is just so huge but do they go watch Rachel?

  • Ratboy

    @ Laurence Glavin
    Ed got one million plus taking into consideration the 11:00 pm showing

    so that means that OReilly got just under 4 million right? Or doesnt it work that way?

  • Steve Perry

    Wow…Rachel Maddow is closing in on Hannity in the 25-54 demo. And poor O’Reilly hasn’t hit the 3 Million mark in a long time…what’s happeing and where are his loyal viewers.

  • Coffee Steve

    @USNRetiredx2

    ATTENNNNNNNNNNHUH!!!!!

    Where you be?

  • Coffee Steve

    @Steve Perry
    what’s happeing and where are his loyal viewers.

    Most of them were in Branson MO and then followed me to The Smoky Mountains :lol:

    ROTFLMBO :lol: so let me get this right, so under a million and only slightly over 300 is real good for the networks star but just under 3 million and almost 600 in the key aint!

    I LOVE how the left spins things!!!!!

  • PaulG

    @Steve Perry

    Wow…Rachel Maddow is closing in on Hannity in the 25-54 demo.

  • Steve Perry

    In the 25-54 demos more Americans are not watching Fox News than are.

  • Matthew

    “ROTFLMBO so let me get this right, so under a million and only slightly over 300 is real good for the networks star but just under 3 million and almost 600 in the key aint!”

    His argument was stupid and flawed, but so is yours. Just because they’re both cable news networks, that doesn’t quite make it an apples to apples comparison – FNC and CNN have a budget three times larger than MSNBC’s, so relative to their investment, NBC Universal gets a decent return. They don’t expect to get O’Reilly level viewership. The real ratings loser is CNN, which has a budget that’s very close to that of FNC, but is getting clobbered in the demo. They’re even getting beaten by their own sister station in prime time.

  • Steve Perry

    Again, just to put things into perspective for you Fox kool-aid drinkers:

    Top Evening News shows

    #1 – NBC Nightly News – 7,756,000

    #2 – ABC World News – 7,170,000

    #3 – CBS Evening News – 5,429,00

    #4 – O’Reilly Factor – 2,867,000 (Not even close to the big boys)

    #5 – Hannity Show – 1,728,000

    Yep, over 20+ Million Unique viewers watch the so called Liberal Media while only a couple million unique viewers watch Conservative media.

  • Coffee Steve

    Softball size hail heading this way?????????

    Eh….not good My garage is packed and can’t put the van or the car in YUK!!!!

  • Matthew

    “Yep, over 20+ Million Unique viewers watch the so called Liberal Media while only a couple million unique viewers watch Conservative media.”

    This is even more meaningless than Ratboy’s argument. The broadcast channels are available in more homes, and their nightly news programs have had decades to establish themselves as a brand; The fact that FNC is even within shooting distance of some of these programs is a testament to how successful the station has been.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Matthew

    Good point, I’ve always said if if and butts were candy and nuts, If FOX was nationwide over the airwaves they would be right up there with the big boys.

  • Nick

    Hey Steve that all adds up to the listening audience of Rush. There are literally thousands of AM talk radio shows so keep dreaming. Liberalism is Dead!

  • Ratboy

    @ Again, just to put things into perspective for you Fox kool-aid drinkers:

    Like I said Matthew I love the spin they put on it!! Steve Perry just wrote the new campaign slogan for Obama ” RE-ELECT OBAMA CUZ WE AINT AS BAD AS GREECE!” :lol: :lol:

  • Ratboy

    Hey Coffee Steve! When do we eat?? Are the hot dogs done yet?? You said you were cooking out for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ratboy
    CUZ WE AINT AS BAD AS GREECE!”

    But we’re working hard to be :mrgreen:
