    Fox should run the Lawarence Welk Show after BIllo–his audience is basically the same–nobody would switch stations….

    The right wing GOP is fading from the scene as it tries to morph itself into a socially acceptable party so it stands a chance of winning an election. BUT, its backward thinking memebership and leadership will not permit it to morph; hence, it is destined for dinosaur-dom……

  • Hal Barbera

    Heads are going to roll at CNN! Let’s hope it’s the whole line-up!

  • usa8888

    Can you imagine anyone with half a brain voting for someone like Insanitorum, Gingrich, Perry, Cantor, Jindal, Rubio, DeMint, Paul, Palin, etc. No, the American people can’t either….. the GOP is COOKED…say goodnight!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    Where did all the right wingers on here go. Did Fox’s poor ratings scare them away????

  • usa8888

    But don’t woryy–Rush Slimebaugh can still make his $50mil a year off suckers like ibsles…

  • Bobbyv

    US,

    They’re all taking a tolerance class

  • clinging to my god

    USA8888…calm down, your strait jacket is on it’s way..and please check your spelling…you’re so spitting mad at FOX and it’s success over MSNBC that you’re not making much sense…

  • clinging to my god

    “Lawarence”???????

  • Mark2

    @Bobby

    Top Cable shows for Monday (18-49 key demo)

    Jon Stewart = 1,138,500

    Colbert = 885,500

    OReilly = 379,500

    Let’s face it, OReilly’s generation is dying out, while the younger generation has shifted towards the Democrats.

  • Bobbyv

    Mark2,

    That’s better. I think the younger generation has always favored the democrats and people generally grow more conservative as they get older. With people living longer I think the D’s should be worried about that!

    Here’s an interesting article from TVNewser:

    January 2013 Ratings: Fox News Down Compared To Last Year

    By Alex Weprin on January 29, 2013 5:43 PM

    With January complete, Fox News has completed 11 straight years of being number one in cable news in both primetime and total day. That said, the network saw significant ratings declines in January–particularly in the pivotal adults 25-54 demographic–though its perch remains unthreatened for now.

    The ratings for January, 2013:

    •Primetime (Mon-Sun): 1.617 million total viewers/ 267,000 A25-54
    •Total Day Mon-Sun): 1.029 million total viewers/ 209,000 A25-54

    Fox News was down -6% in total viewers and -22% in the key adults 25-54 demo in total day in January, the lowest demo numbers since July 2008. In primetime, the network was down -17% in total viewers and -40% in the demo, posting its lowest demo numbers since May 2006.

    In primetime, 8 PM’s “The O’Reilly factor” was down only -2% in total viewers, though it was down -25% in the demo. At 9 PM “Hannity” was down -3% in total viewers, and down -19% in the demo. At 10 PM, “On the Record” was down -18% in total viewers and -38% in the demo.

    The highlight for the network was 5 PM’s “The Five,” which was up +21% in total viewers and up +5% in the demo, easily the strongest performance of any show on the channel. Just about every hour of dayside programming was close to flat in total viewers, and down in the demo.

    -This is exactly what I’ve been saying. The key demo is leaving Fox News.

  • Bobbyv

    Definitely down, no question. I guess it depends on how they want to see it: We’re still #1 and this is temporary or they could panic. I have a feeling that it’s a cycle like the rest of the political world right now that is favoring the D’s but time will tell

  • Mark2

    @Bobby “That’s better. I think the younger generation has always favored the democrats and people generally grow more conservative as they get older. With people living longer I think the D’s should be worried about that!”

    LMAO, yeah right!!! You could only wish. The fact of the matter is that our Country has become more progressive over the decades and will continue to become more progressive. Why the shift towards the Democratic Party? Well, there are several reasons:

    1. The Democratic Party has become the Party of Inclusion. It supports the rights of Women, minorities, the disabled, the homeless, Union workers, etc.

    2. Due to our new information age with help of the internet, more American are made aware of the lies and hypocrisy of the Republican Party.

    3. The Democratic Party is now seen as the Party who not only fights for the Poor but also the Middle-Class, while the Republican Party is seen as the Party who fights for the Rich (1 percenters).

    4. The elderly with Conservative views are dying out.

    5. The new Generations are growing up with more progressive values and with a mindset of Inclusion.

    -Also keep in mind, that America’s racial makeup is changing as well. The population of Minorities continue to increase, while the numbers of Whites continue to decrease.

  • Sam

    Mark2 and usa8888 need a hobby or a job…no wonder they’re Democrats. Maddow beating Hannity by 26K for the first time in weeks is “on fire”? They literally look for any excuse they can find not to acknowledge that FNC is #1.

  • Joe

    Out of 30 different shows/demographics/rating columns ( 8 different hours, 2 overall average ratings, and 3 demographics) Fox News won 29 of them and BSNBC won 1, with Rachel Maddow in the key demo… Now I’d consider 29/30 a pretty solid win, but I’m a crazy right wing but job so I’m probly somehow wrong
