    Fox & Friends huge day!

  • Sicilian Papa

    Tingles 69,000 in key demo at 5pm. 50,000 by summer!

  • Chriscee

    Nothing is going to change…msnBS is over and done with. People are leaving the voices for Obama. They are tired of being lied to…daily by the left wing pundits at msnBS!!

  • Chriscee

    I so like to watch The Five. I love Dana Perino. She has such awesome insights as to what is no doubt taking place in Obamaland.

  • Laurence Glavin

    The Faux Bidness Channel is hitting rock bottom. In the past, I’ve read that the simulcast of the Imus radio program is its most popular show. He’s under medical care right now; if he’s heading for the checkout line, this won’t be good. The FBC was often the biggest cheerleader for GOLD. That metal’s price is sinking rapidly. Maybe some of its viewers have concluded that the outlet is NOT a good source of financial news.

  • Sicilian Papa

    MSNBC is having trouble drawing 500,000 total. I say they draw 200,000 to 250,000 by summer, TOTAL!

  • Ratboy

    Well I can see Friday never opened for MSDNC!!!! :shock: :lol:

  • Sam

    Condolences and prayers to those being effected by the tornado in Oklahoma.

  • NY Surfer Dude

    Laurence; Now would be a good time to buy gold.

  • Chriscee

    Shep Smith says much of the town of Moore Oklahoma is leveled.

  • SteveB

    Ouch……..

    MSNBC

    The wound that is never gonna heal……..

  • Sicilian Papa

    Laurence

    FBN is not in that many homes. When I had rich mans cable I would watch it a lot. Imus and I like some of the specials. My cousin didn’t want to keep paying and miss rich mans cable.

  • Jeff

    At the height of the Fox News wildest dreams with a 3way scandal 24/7 news network and this is all they can draw on a major news day??

    Ouch!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    Chriscee

    I like all the girls on The Five and they are goodlooking dames also!

  • Coffee Steve

    @Sam

    Howdy Sam

    Condolences and prayers to those being effected by the tornado in Oklahoma.

    Amen to that, the pictures and videos are horrifying.

  • Ratboy

    FOX, 4 of 6 major shows over 2 million!! CNN and MSNBC NONE over 1 million, MSNBC only one over 600k! Everyone of the FOX majors including the Oreilly rerun over 200k in the key with OReilly over 300k (almot at 400k)at 8 and none of the MSNBC talking heads got to 200k, only the special at 10.

    Yep FOX is GOING DOWN!!!!!!! :lol: :lol:

  • Stan T

    O’Reilly gets over 5 times the viewers that MSNBC can garner…even if you take the best MSNBC show of the day, he’s still getting 4 times the viewers…heck, O’Reilly’s key demo figures nearly put MSNBC to shame all by themselves…lol

  • Coffee Steve

    The F5 tornado is get this guys, 2 miles wide

  • Coffee Steve

    Some Gust measured at 190 MPH. Living through that is pure Hell on Earth

  • Sicilian Papa

    Fox News beat all comers combined in total viewers. You add all other shows together and they lose to Fox in every time slot!
