    Foxnews wins again!!!!!!! The Sharpton Channel comes in second again!!!!!!

  • BevAG

    Patrick, I love when that happens. :)

  • BevAG

    Fox is putting on their first New Year’s Eve special.

    We’re all going to watch it at our home and start a tradition. We watch the Ball go down in Times Square at midnight and it’s 9:00 p.m. for us here in California. :) The dog (English Bulldog) likes to go to bed by 10:00, so CA midnight is too late for us. lol

    We used to watch Dick Clark’s New Year’s Eve. We’ve really missed that, and him. He was so great.

    Fox New Year’s is going to be the new family tradition. I know they’ll put on a good show.

  • 1966

    sara nice date.

  • http://tvbythenumbers.com Robert Seidman

    @1966, blame catching up w/the avalanche of ratings due to holiday delays. fixed.

  • me

    You fail to mention that Fox News beats MSNBC because Fox news is available in more areas. If MSNBC was available in more areas they would beat the crap out of Fox News. Look how close Hannity and Maddow’s ratings are.

  • BevAG

    me, I didn’t fail to mention that I all. I purposely didn’t mention it because it’s irrelevant. :)

  • 1966

    lol@ ME

  • cathy

    Sad news:

    George HW Bush still in hospital his fever has risen.

    Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, who led coalition forces in the Persian Gulf War, dies

  • 1966

    @me
    how are the fish?

  • TheBoss1

    Fox News loses the key demographic at 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, 8:00, 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00 to MSNBC.

    So one of you Foxies plean explain to this unabashed and proud liberal how the hell Fox News won the evening?

  • Jin

    What was MSNBC showing? 5-11 clean sweep.
    Even CNBC managed several wins against FOX-booyah!

  • BevAG

    TheBoss, it’s the same explanation that the Libs have whenever the numbers are higher for Fox and the Libs say that MSNBC won. It’s the same reasoning.

  • AppleStinx

    Fox News averaged more viewers than any of the other cable news channels, in all of those time slots.

  • Kendall

    @TheBoss1

    Not taking sides. But, I was curious about that scenario, too. I guess the 25-54 demo is not the measuring stick anymore.

    @BevAG

    It’s a bit silly to say that the difference in availability between FNC and MSNBC is “irrelevant”. Personally, I think FNC would still win the (total) ratings battle most nights. But, I think the percentage would be significantly reduced.

  • BevAG

    Kendall:

    Actually I’m just joshing and being obstreperous. :)

    I really figure during the holidays it doesn’t matter because people are busy, they’re watching “specials” as opposed to political things. Until the holidays are over none of this is telling any story about anything political.

    1966:

    That Sugar Town was great!!!! This and Boots are Nancy’s greatest songs. :)

  • 1966

    @bevag
    it was on the charts at this time in 1966.

  • Kendall

    @BevAG

    lol. I wondered if you were. Stop being so mean to ‘me’. ;)
