    hannity wins yet again!!!
    he destroys rachel in the demo.

  • Mark

    @1966

    Actually Hannity beat Erza Klein in the Demo

  • Ratboy

    Sharpton gets 215k in the key!!! He is oooooooooon FIRE!!!! :lol: :lol:

  • Mark2

    That’s the only way Hannity can beat Rachel…when she’s off for the night, lol.

    Shepard Smith got better numbers than Hannity in both demos AGAIN.

    Ouch!!! That’s gotta hurt his ego.

  • 1966

    @mark2
    but not his pocketbook

  • Mark2

    Bob Beckel and the Four got higher key demo numbers than O’Reilly.

    Bob Beckel for the Win, lol.

  • AppleStinx

    @Hillbilly

    Soon I’ll be asking to be paid for doing your job. :grin:

    Only 2 programs from cable news channels on the daily cable list: The Five and O’Reilly Factor.

    @ratboy
    winter storm here tomorrow night thru sunday nite ir your lucky it will hit you also.

  • RedBarSoup

    Did everyone see that the Republicans filibustered THEMSELVES on the debt ceiling talks?

  • Mark2

    @AppleStinx

    Wrong!!!

    Jon Stewart finished in the Top 25 and Colbert finished in the Top 40, while Beckel & the Four and O’Reilly finished 98th and 99th out of 100.

    Ouch!!! That’s gotta hurt!

  • Sam

    Maddow felt bad for Hannity so she let Ezra host her show for two days, yet Hannity barely won… time to back your bags fraud.

  • Sam

    *Pack

    @RedBar

    Yeah, Mitch McConnell has become the biggest joke in Congress. Nobody even respects him anymore.

  • Patrick W.

    Foxnews defeats the Sharpton channel again.

  • Mark2

    Prop 8 / Gay Marriage to be heard by the Supreme Court.

    It will soon become legal Nationwide.

  • AppleStinx

    Read carefully:
    Only 2 programs from cable news channels on the daily cable list: The Five and O’Reilly Factor.

  • RedBarSoup

    @Applestinx

    Those 2 shows might be on the cable news channel but they aren’t news, they are 100% entertainment shows that take a shallow dip into the news…..just like Stephen Colbert and the Daily show…..so when you call out the 5 and the O’Reilly factor for being on that list, you should do the same for Daily Show and Stephen Colbert.

  • AppleStinx

    @RedBarSoup

    The ‘Colbert Report’ and ‘Daily Show’ don’t appear on any cable news program ranker that I know of. They play in a different league. When they come over to any of the channels at the top of this post, they’ll be contenders.

  • betty

  • 1966

    yay!!! my favorite poster betty is back!!!1
