    Yay me! I’m first (I need a real job!)

  • Laurence Glavin

    Piers Morgan on CNN getting killed “in the demo”. Jeez…whome did he have on the show?

  • Laurence Glavin

    Nobody here but us Larrys.

  • Ratboy

    What am I chopped liver?????? :lol:

  • Ratboy

    The Five is down a bit but Greta and Hannity burned em up!!! I think OReillys numbers will onley get bigger the closer we get to the election so this might be a small night compared to what it may be!

  • Sicilian Papa

    Hannity is starting to beat Rachel pretty regular again. Having Tingles on is hurting the other hosts. “We’ve got our knives out.” What a weenie.

  • b

    here’s an idea…while we’re at it, let’s relentlessly do something else just as laughably stupid- Let’s, on a weekly basis, compare what The New England Patriots performance is versus the 2-bottom high school football teams in the The Boston Unified School District.

    FOX News, viewed in far fewer homes than NBC/ABC/CBS, is a far more accurate league for comparison-purposes than matching-up FOX News with MSNBC, TMZ, CNN, and D!kes on Bikes.

    Purely from advertising-dollars point of view and how an advertising executive’s future is dependent upon highly effective return on investment, my point is indisputable…

  • Dave

    Ever since Obama’s stinky performance at the debate, ratings for MSNBC has gone down.

    Depression.

  • Jeff

    @coffee Steve, I musta missed a comment from you about your older brother earlier. Hope all goes well with him and he’s back in action ASAP!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    There must be room for Piers Morgan at MSNBC or Al Gore TV.

  • James

    @ sicilian. Did u know both former incumbents ronald reagan and george w bush had lost thier first debates only to make a comeback in the next 2 and when the elections ..who s to say it wont happen again

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    James

    Obama will challenge Romney in the next debate. It will be up to Romney to perform.

  • James

    You righties jump the gun so often…we got 3 more debates to go how long can romney keep gettin away with his b.s and flip flopping

  • Laurence Glavin

    There may be a slight reduction in The Ed Show’s rating. The great Charlie Pierce is slated to be on with Elliott Spitzer on Current TV. I know I’LL be watching/

  • Hoppy

    Check twitchy out to see our fate should Romney be elected.

  • Ratboy

    Could this be based on business planning and based on the outcome of the election? NAH! That dont happen and it gets people fired for even bringing it up!! :twisted:
