    Lets just do a quick recap from last night
    Bill Gorman the Guru and keeper of this site did stop by and weigh in and…………………………………

    THEN IT ENDED WITH BILL TELLING MARK2:
    You sir, are simply mistaken, but I don’t expect I’ll be changing your mind

    AT WHICH POINT MARK2 CAME BACK:
    Thank you for admitting that I was right. I’ve been saying that for over a month now

    :lol; :lol: :lol: :lol:

    @Hillbilly “It’s first place amongst his peers – other cable news shows”

    Peers??? He’s an entertainer that give his opinion on News…just like Jon Stewart. Don’t even try putting him in the same category as a Rachel Maddow or a Bret Baier. The O’Reilly Factor is an entertainment show. Even O’Reilly refers to himself as an entertainer.

    @Cathy

    Doug Z calls himself a fiscal conservative + social liberal. I think he’s the one using speech recognition to get comments typed, so there’s the element of the program misunderstanding words he said. :smile:

    Establishment Republicans are destroying America because they beg to be loved by Marxis Rats who hate our Constitution.

    It is time to establish a new party for those who believe that Borders, Culture and Language matter…The only requirement for membership will be a strong desire to rebuild a strong America under our Constitution.

    GOP=WHIGS

    @Ratboy “Bill Gorman the Guru and keeper of this site did stop by and weigh in…”

    Just because he’s the keeper of this site doesn’t mean he’s correct. However, he did admit that the 18-49 demo is the most important demo on Broadcast Primetime, something that I’ve been saying for a long time now.

    In addition, I and a couple of others have been saying that the key demos are more important than the total viewers…we were right about that as well.

    This is straight from the TVBTN’s site:
    “A18-49 or Adults 18-49 Ratings – this is the advertising demographic advertisers are usually most interested in for primetime shows. It’s the important number in terms of how well a show is doing. Total viewers (P2+ above) DON’T really make a difference.”

    Just like myself and others have been saying.

    NEXT!!!

    This just in: Standard & Poors will be held accountable for its role in causing our economic meltdown by fraudulently representing securities it knew were worthless as superb. In fact, it bet against the securities it gave its stamp of approval to in order to put even more money in its pockets. The S&P management should go to prison…

    Mark2 and rat, it is time to move on.Lets get mean now on another issue

  • Mark2

    In the TV world, is there anything more important than the Primetime numbers? I think not. When it comes to Primetime, Broadcast TV shows get the highest ratings…that’s a fact. And just like you admitted, the 18-49 demo is the most important thing for Broadcast Primetime.

    In the Broadcast world, advertisers pay an average of $100,000 for a 30 second commercial spot in Primetime, while Cable only averages around $10,000 per 30 second spot. That’s 10 times less than Broadcast. Well why do you think it’s that way? I’ll tell you why…because again Broadcast shows get higher ratings than Cable shows.

    Those shows with the highest 18-49 demo ratings on Broadcast Primetime are able to command the highet price for a 30 second commercial spot in ALL of TV. Again, this is why the 18-49 demo is the most important demo in all of TV.

    However, even when it comes to the 25-54 demo for News, Broadcast News dominates over Cable as I’ve stated before:

    25-54 Demo numbers for Evening News

    NBC News w/Brian Williams = 2,545,000
    ABC News w/Diane Sawyer = 2,188,000
    CBS News w/Scott Pelley = 2,033,000
    Fox News O’Reilly Factor = 513,000
    Fox News The Five = 367,000
    Special Report w/ Bret Baier = 295,00
    MSNBC News Rachel Maddow = 291,000

    Brian Williams alone draws more 25-54 viewers than O’Reilly, O’Reilly Repeat, Hannity, Rachel, The Ed Show, Lawrence, Greta, and The Five COMBINED!!! That’s right, NBC News w/Brian Williams beats all those shows combined.

    The S&P management should go to prison…

    And Moody s and all the others. Rebs and Dems will protect their own

  • usa8888

    Did you hear about the right wing GOP politician (“Bob”) in Virginia who wants Virginia to have its own currency? What will the uneducated right do next???—try to abolish the Federal Reserve, birth control, Social Security, Medicare…oh, wait!! The right has already done that…

  • Mark2

    Once again,

    Brian Williams alone draws more 25-54 viewers than O’Reilly, O’Reilly Repeat, Hannity, Rachel, The Ed Show, Lawrence, Greta, and The Five COMBINED!!! That’s right, NBC News w/Brian Williams beats all those shows combined.

    Ouch!!! That’s gotta hurt!

    Just because he’s the keeper of this site doesn’t mean he’s correct.

    Dont ya think that maybe, juuuuuust maybe Bill might have gone to great lengths to learn aaaaaaaall about the stuff he is gonna talk about and post on HIS site about RATINGS????

    Why do you have such a difficult time seperating Network from Cable news?? What is hard about that to you?? Do you not understand that a round orange fruit with a thick skin is very different from a round red fruit with a thin skin. Even though they are both fruit and both mostly round they are entirely different!!!

    You have now proved beyond a reasonable doubt that you are in a completely different rehlm of reality, one that is occupied by you and you alone and I hope that you have a wonderful time there but I will not be visiting you there anymore.

  • Doug Z

    Mr usa to abolish the Federal Reserve, that would be wonderful
