    Awful numbers in primetime demo for FNC. 4th on Saturday and 5th on Sunday. It must be a first. I wonder whether it was any particular show or all 3 each day that contributed to the low averages.

  • Hillbilly

    Dana Perino subbed for Huckabee. I was hoping she would win big time. Don’t look like she did. :(

  • Debsafan

    Boy a lot of people are not watch any of the cable news channels. Guess there’s to much on regular TV. Me I’ve been watching Netflix.

    She pulled the usual ‘Huckabee’ numbers on Saturday; Geraldo was the culprit.

  • Ralph Hahn

    I’m not making excuses for Fox on weekends. The problem is they run the same damn shows, over and over and over again. How many times can you watch “Fox News Sunday,” “Judge Jeanine” and “Geraldo?” They need some original programming or more live, straight news.

    AppleStinx – She pulled the usual ‘Huckabee’ numbers on Saturday; Geraldo was the culprit.

    Send him back to MSNBC. I’m guessing he’s a nice guy, but not my cup of tea.
