    Usa888…………..Must have broke his curfew last night.

  • Letmethink

    As bad as Early Start/Starting Point is–it is catching up with Morning Joe. Mark Levine was so right on about Joe S. Fox and Friends down a bit also.
    Will be interesting to see how Jake Tapper does. He he will go down the middle of the road.

  • Doug Z

    I had been looking for the cost of cable for a long time. I read about ESPN and how much they charge before in the contract dispute with cable. If we could just pay for what we use and get rid of the package deal.

  • ninja

    Part of usa888 punishment is to watch PoliticsNation.

  • ninja

    @Doug……………….Good idea. Something like a cell phone contract?

  • Doug Z

    Many channels owned by big media companies are available in nearly all the roughly 100 million households with pay TV, according to media researcher SNL Kagan. And while many of the most-popular channels earn the highest fees, big disparities exist, particularly for sports channels, which cable and satellite operators view as particularly valuable.

  • Mark2

    I were in charge of CNN, this would be my lineup:

    5PM – The Blaze w/Glenn Beck

    6PM – The Situation Room w/Wolf Blitzer, Soledad Obrien, & Suzanne Malveaux

    7PM – Lou Dobbs Tonight

    8PM – Countdown w/Keith Olbermann

    9PM – Hot Topics w/Piers Morgan, Michelle Malkin, Joy Behar, Dennis Miller, & Special Guests (Politicians, Entertainment Stars, Business People,etc)

    10PM – LIVE w/Anderson Cooper & Erin Burnett (Around the World)

    11PM – Repeat of their Highest Rated show from 5-10 PM

    Talk about making waves…lol

  • Jeff

    Since the Fox-tards like to use this excuse….

    Got news for ya…..

    Rachel was off last Friday.

    ;)

  • Doug Z

    Mark2

    Your line up should be cheap to produce, for nobody watches these people LOL

  • JTKenny

    What happened to Rachel Madcow on Friday? Did BSNBC not give her enough promos?

  • Ralph Hahn

    Joe: ONE MORE TIME I will explain this to you. A political party’s victory has NOTHING to do with rising and falling cable news ratings. And ONE MORE TIME, Rush Limbaugh’s became REALLY successful when Clinton won the Presidency in 1992. I know that Romney did not win the election, you loon. You have a habit of crediting people with saying things when they are actually said by someone else. Smarten up!

  • Henny

    @JTKenny try a guest host. Good guess funny man

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “Your line up should be cheap to produce, for nobody watches these people LOL”

    Before the were let go, Beck, Dobbs, and Olbermann were all doing extremely well in the viewership numbers compared to what CNN is getting right.

  • ninja

    According to uas888…most fox viewers are 65 and older. Should help during March Madness. Find a new excuse now.

  • Doug Z

    Mark2 Olbermann has made everybody mad. He made people that should be his friend mad. Would he change. I do not think so.

  • Mark2

    @Ralph Hahn

    It’s too bad for you and the Republican Party that not enough Americans are watching Conservative media compared to Liberal media.

  • Mark2

    @DougZ “Olbermann has made everybody mad. He made people that should be his friend mad. Would he change. I do not think so.”

    And so has Beck and Dobbs…and that’s exactly why I would hire all 3 of them. Controversial brings in viewers.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Mark2tarded: >>> More Americans (potential voters) are watching NBC, CBS, & ABC than Fox, MSNBC, & CNN. <<<

    I can no longer even refer to a poster and his douchy remarks. He's just 2-tarded.

    I was not talking about their political views. I was talking about who they worked with. Or their boss. I think people like Beck and Dobbs , but might not agree with them. You do not yell at the people working with you.

    Please just do not reply to them. Name calling is like many others and you are above that.
