    Fox Comedy News Show Debuts Sunday Night
    Posted by Matthew Sheffield on February 14, 2007 - 17:17.
    This Sunday at 10pm Eastern, Fox News Channel is going to show a pilot episode of a news satire show it's commissioned from "24" executive producer Joel Surnow.

    Here at NB and MRC, we often rightly complain at the media's leftward slant. This slant exists largely because the news and entertainment media shun and blacklist people with known conservative and libertarian politics, however, it's also a question of the right's interest in media.

    If you're sick of every comedy show being run by left-wingers like Jon Stewart, Bill Maher, and David Letterman, join me in watching the "Half-Hour News Hour" this Sunday and tell everyone you know who might like it to tune in as well.

    In an upcoming show Rush Limbaugh is President and Ann Coulter is VP. Here is a link to catch a clip from the show on Sunday

    Meet President Rush Limbaugh and Vice President Ann Coulter
    Posted by Noel Sheppard on February 14, 2007 - 22:56.
    As NewsBuster Matt Sheffield reported Wednesday, Fox News will be introducing a new comedy this coming Sunday called “The Half Hour News Hour.” FNC previewed another segment (h/t Hot Air) with Rush Limbaugh as the new president in January 2009.

    It appears that Limbaugh won after another “bitter recount,” and the loser, Howard Dean, is now “finally getting the medical attention he has so desperately needed for so long.”

    His vice president, Ann Coulter, informed viewers that if they don’t watch the show, “We will invade your countries, kill your leaders, and convert you to Christianity.”

    Good Luck finding someone thats better than Bill Mahr. Mahr makes the president look like a stupid idiot. Not that he needed any help with that.

    That right wing 1/2 hour show was so damn UNFUNNY, they needed a "laugh" track to show us the "FUNNY" parts (or what they thought was funny).

    To be honest, I didn't find that funny and I tend to find stuff like that funny.

    I guess I just get annoyed when movies/shows advertise "This will offend/anger <blank>"

    Only thing the Repubs have is The Fat old Pill Popping drug user Rush. Democrats own the television airwaves. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it Blue States.

    Then why do libs have a cow over Fox News, and want to bring back the Fairness Doctrine?

    Scared perhaps Fox and talk radio are adding viewers/listeners while the liberal media are losing them?

    Libs own TV?


    Fox News Channel made it five in a row in January -- five years atop the ratings rung in the news category for both primetime and total day.

    Fox News, which overtook CNN in January 2002, averaged a 1.4 household rating last month, up 8% from 1.3 in the first month of 2006, according to a Disney ABC Networks analysis of Nielsen Media Research data. That was good for a share of fourth place among all basic-cable networks in January. CNN was flat at a 0.7, while MSNBC improved 67% to 0.5.

    Last month, Fox News scored a 9% gain with primetime viewers to a 1.62 million average from 1.48 million, more than twice the combined total of CNN (ahead 12% to 813,000) and MSNBC (a 55% jump to 540,000).

    With the key news demo, Fox News averaged 389,000 25-54 viewers in primetime during January, a 22% improvement from the prior-year period. CNN (up 29% to 260,000) and MSNBC (45% to 217,000) also recorded big gains. MSNBC officials said that performance helped the network to accrue its greatest share with that demo since November 2001.

    Gauged on a total-day basis, Fox News -- which will launch late-night show Red Eye, which will examine recent developments in politics, entertainment, business and pop culture, Tuesday at 2 a.m. (EST) -- averaged 874,000 viewers (off 3%) in January, while CNN tallied 521,000 (up 13%) and MSNBC 332,000 (up 39%). Among the news demo, Fox grew 11% to 262,000, versus 186,000 for CNN (+28%) and 138,000 for MSNBC (+52%).
