    This should get all the hysterical Fox News-Haters in a tizzy. More & more people think GE/NBC blows...


    It's relatively rare for cable news to beat broadcast, in part because NBC still reaches more homes than Fox. According to TV by the Numbers, O'Reilly pulled 3.478 million viewers last Wednesday compared to 3.341 million for the NBC show.

    An unspoken, yet significant question about the above is this:

    Does the huge viewer-ship represent a political poll of sorts?

    Does it mean that the viewers basically agree with the 'fair and balanced' right of center outlook of Fox?


    I believe it does....and bodes ill for Obama in November.

    “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” wins the week and the first quarter of 2012 and holds a 1.1 million Total Viewer season-to-date lead on #2 “ABC World News with Diane Sawyer.” For the quarter, “World News” decreased its year-to-year A25-54 demo gap with “NBC Nightly News” by -15%. It’s the closest the two shows have been in younger viewers in 4 years – since Q1 2008.

    The “CBS Evening News” which saw its lowest Q1 on record in 2011, was the only broadcast to improve its numbers year-over-year, +3% in Total Viewers. Q1 2011 saw extensive coverage of the Arab spring and Japan earthquake and tsunami.

    Note: “CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” is excluded from the averages on Thursday and Friday due to NCAA basketball games. “World News” and “Nightly News” averages were based on 5 days.

    O'Reilly does a conservative talk show. What's his competition in that genre at 8 pm weekdays?

    You're not ready to claim that Fox doesn't eat MSNBC or CNN's lunch are you?

    The question was, what is the competition in the genre of conservative programming at 8 pm weekdays?

    Is your answer 'none'?
