Fox News Kicking Sean Hannity Out Of Time Slot In Favor Of Megyn Kelly -
Does anyone care?
orgasm time for the petty left...
Keep doing this and you'll go insane Puddly.
Oops! Too late.
Ratings going up or down has nothing to do with the "left" or the "right".
Your clue is in the first quoted line of the OP:
>> In a move that every sane person in America would like to believe means Fox News is moving away from the crazy and extreme <<
It could mean the viewing public is tiring of The Crazy. We would hope.
But more likely they're tiring of this particular face of it.
It's past their bedtime.
It will be such a joy to see that world class A-hole out of that primetime slot. Even if he's still on at another time, it's still a major victory, as he has been demoted and it will be well noticed by all.
I'd like to see Meg Kelly overtake O'Reilly's ratings.
I'd like to see that too.
She's literally the most moderate person on the channel. Not to mention the most attractive.
Kill two birds w/one stone.
Hannity will stay right where he is. It might be Shep Smith that's moved because he is the weakest.
Shep Smith is news. Hannity is commentary.
That's why they're where they are. News doesn't get ratings. The Crazy gets them.
Sean Hannity Hits 1000th Show as Cable News Ratings Winner | Variety
Sean Hannity is celebrating a milestone this week as tonight’s telecast of “Hannity” on Fox News Channel will mark his 1000th show as the top-rated news program in its timeslot.
The conservative commentator, who had no formal training in television or radio, has been on top of the ratings heap since its premiere in January 2009, winning 52 consecutive months, according to Nielsen. “Hannity” averages more than 2 million viewers each weeknight at 9 — often beating the combined tune-in at the time of CNN and MSNBC.
That doesn't mean Smith can't be moved. He's just the low man on the totem pole.
He's not even on the same pole. He's NEWS.
You can shift commentary shows around all you want but if you've decided a particular daypart is going to be news, then it's going to be news. And within that Shep Smith, I believe has seniority over everybody. And something else that's more valuable (and elusive) to the channel: credibility.
Lately all we have been hearing from the left is a combination of what they think is going to happen and what they hope will happen. They don't seem to be able to focus on reality. The big news a month ago was that a radio network "might" drop Hannity and Rush but there is nothing on the internet to confirm that it happened. The freaking world is falling apart and the only thing the radical left can come up with is the possibility that Fox might put Hannity in a different time slot. Hatred will do strange things to people but dancing in the streets over a change in a time slot that hasn't even happened is about the strangest.
Hannity is a douche nozzle.
The left lives in a world of delusion.
In that delusion, MSNBC and CNN are the top rated cable news networks.
agreed, does he still let his con panel beat the snot out of the lefties he asks on? I don't know why they come....*shrugs*
I wouldn't know if Chris Matthews time slot was changed nor would I care. Ditto for the rest of the liberal hoarde. The question is why is the left so interested in Hannity and Limbaugh and why are they at war with the 1st Amendment? The celebration doesn't jibe with reality. Dealing with the left is like dealing with a little army of schizophrenics complete with inappropriate emotional outbursts.
August 9th ratings... appears Hannity is #1.
Not sure where you're getting your data, dipshit...

Well if Hannity goes, OReilly is already turning to the left for his marching instructions. Megyn favors the left. I'll be looking for another channel or spending a lot of time at Washington times if they remain conservative.
