    FNC hasn’t beaten the competition so decisively on a weekend in recent memory. CNN was second in P2+ viewers both days, Total Day and Primetime – it’s just not normal.

  • Hillbilly

    A rare weekend sweep for FNC. :)

  • Ralph Hahn

    FNC wins the 25-54 demo all weekend. Total Day, Saturday & Sunday. #1 demo prime-time, both days. Tingles and Rachel weren’t there to help the weekenders.

  • Ralph Hahn

    FYI: Mitt Romney sits down with Neil Cavuto on FNC’s “Your World” in less than an hour here on the East Coast (4:00pm).

    And, later tonight, Dave Letterman will play straight man to Barack Obama, President Show-Biz.

  • Raz

    What, MSNBC didn’t have on prisons, sex or drugs on this week?

  • Betty

    Obama can get on tv with Letterman, but not with the President of Israel! Iran about to have Nuke in six months! You know Iran does want to nuke Israel, but they would love to nuke USA too. All the Muslims would love Iran for that, you know, just saying.
