    First! Fox should consider replacing Greta with Megyn Kelly. Not just yet, but program it. Watching streaming video of Rush and Trump on a phoner interview, is not thrilling anyone anymore.

  • 1966

    hannity wins again.

  • dana

    I do not know if it was a regional sensation last night but AL Sharptons show had no audio………….it was the best show he ever did!!!

  • Loza

    Lawrence crushed Greta lol.. and Chris Matthews beat the Five.. lol… MSNBC still doing good 3 weeks after the election..

  • Diamond Dave

    Weird that The Five tanked without Gutfeld. Maybe he’s a hotter property than they think he is. I personally think he’s the future of conservative talk.

  • Diamond Dave

    Loza, Matthews beat The Five for the first time since its inception. There’s obviously a reason, not a trend. Otherwise, The Five is one of Fox’s highest rated shows.

  • Loza


    Well, I hope it keeps on happening :). I watched the Five once and I can’t stand it.. I like Chris Matthews but a repeat at 7pm aint cutting it against Chepard Smith. They need to add another show there to keep the momentum going up till Lawreance at 10pm..

  • Pundit

    MSNBC is doing great post-election. Matthews topping 1 million is sick. Hey, they keep this up and they will start mentioning Fox News in their press releases.

    Note to Zucker: Fire Anderson Cooper. Erin “Airhead” Burnett drew more viewers.

  • Pundit

    Don’t understand MSNBC fans getting jacked up about Demo numbers. O’Reilly was the only one to crack the top 50 on cable (50th) which means sponsors go elsewhere for demo. Pretty much cable news advertisers want the old goat crowd.

    You see any ProActiv ads on Maddow?

  • Mark2

    Hey Pundit,

    Demo numbers are the only thing that matters.

    By the way, O’Reilly didn’t even come close to cracking the Top 50 on cable. He placed last on the list of 100. However, Jon Stewart and Colbert both placed in the Top 40.

  • Hillbilly

    Pictures & a video. :cool:

    Naked Protesters Storm Speaker John Boehner’s Office.

  • Hillbilly

    FNC is on fire. :razz:

  • Hillbilly

    Bill O only cable news show on the list.

    Bill O is on fire. :razz:

  • Hillbilly

    Bill O only cable news show on the top 25.

  • 1966

    ouch that’s gotta hurt!!!

  • Coffee Steve

    7th grade is requiring a lot more time from me :-)

    WARNING!!! Gas shot up 50 cents here back up to over 3.50 per, if it hasn’t there yet it will.

  • Laurence Glavin

    The price of gasoline for automobiles has virtually NOTHING to do with whoever occuppies the Oval Office. (BTW, “whoever”is the right word, not “whomever” because it’s the subject of the clause it occupies and not the object of the preposition “with”; I know my fans expect perfect grammar from me so I wanted to point that out). The crude price on the options market is given in barrels of oil, and that quantity is 42 gallons of crude before refining almost everywhere on the planet. This doesn’t mean actual, physical barrels; a tanker truck with 42,000 gallons of oil contains NO barrels. This very day, oil as a commodity is priced in the mid-80s, thus even before a drop of crude is refined, the starting point of pricing that oil is just above two dollars. Then only a portion of some types of crude can be refined into gasoline for automobiles and then must be transported to the pump nearest the user. A 100 per cent markup after all that would not be extraordinary, yet where I live north of Boston, it’s $3.559. In other words perfectly reasonable. If Willard had been elected and later tanked the economy so crude oil dropped to $1.00 a barrel, THEN gasoline for automobiles would be priced in the vicinity of $2.00 a gallon. Is that what you right-wing zealots want?

  • Eggmanbill

    Bill O’Reilly is not a news show, it’s Billy O’s opinion of the news. their is only one show that is not an opinion show and that is the Shepard Smith show!!!! Bret Baier is another opinion show, nothing is Fair and Balanced about Fox, these shows will all end up on the Comedy Channel!!!!

  • BevAG

    Laurence, and to think the Liberals/Democrats/Socialists all blamed the price of fuel on President Bush while he was in office.

  • ron300

    Laurence, Once again someone needs to explain to you academics what is really going on in the world. Willard, first of all would not have “Tanked” the economy, Barry is going to do that all on his own. The main driver in the pricing of gas is supply and demand and the perception of both. When we buy crude from a mid east country there is a inherent risk involved to the supply, that is the main reason prices of gas at the pump go up or down, it’s based on the news of events playing out in the mid east or some other place in the world that will effect the supply on that day. If we get all of our crude from North America we will totally eliminate the risk of a war in the mideast disturbing our gas production here and the prices will even out and drop, not fluctuate with the news cycle. The right wing zelots, once again, are right and the kool-aid drinkers on the left are wrong. Nothing new there!
