    The numbers are absolutely stunning. Why are people so captivated by her because the numbers don't lie? The thing is she is only a civilian and not in politics anymore.

    While mainstream media members continue to belittle her at every opportunity, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin attracted huge audiences in her first two official appearances as a Fox News Channel contributor.

    Debuting on Tuesday's "O'Reilly Factor," the former vice presidential candidate drew almost 4 million viewers more than doubling the combined total of MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and CNN's Campbell Brown.

    The following evening on "Glenn Beck," Palin attracted over 3 million -- at 5PM!

    Regardless of what her detractors say, Palin was a smash hit (complete numbers below the fold courtesy TVBytheNumbers.com, Tuesday first):

    8PM – P2+ (25-54) (35-64)
    The O’Reilly Factor – 3,954,000 viewers (993,000) (1,786,000)
    Campbell Brown – 999,000 viewers (284,000) (363,000)
    Countdown w/ K. Olbermann – 906,000 viewers (271,000) (510,000)
    Coca-Cola: The Real Story – 179,000 viewers (116,000) (91,000)
    Nancy Grace – 704,000 viewers (271,000) (351,000)

    5PM – P2+ (25-54) (35-64)
    Glenn Beck – 3,175,000 viewers (852,000) (1,413,000)
    Situation Room—1,310,000 viewers (424,000) (610,000)
    Hardball w/ C. Matthews —524,000 viewers (101,000) (249,000)
    Fast Money —257,000 viewers (a scratch w/37,000) (100,000)
    Prime News —288,000 viewers (126,000) (156,000) nning and she anihilated the competition.

    good for her

    but ratings don't equal votes

    unless something dramatically changes with her, she will never get my vote

    And the season 9 premiere of American Idol drew 30 million.

    Congratulations, Sarah, you're 1/10th as popular as a parade of no-talent freaks.

    and you have the iq of 1/10th of the american population who know the difference between news/political/talk show ratings as compared to entertainment shows

    then again, you're probably the idiot that slams a true documentary because it didn't make as much money as a summer popcorn flick

    preaching to the converted does not increase your base, it constipates it.

    Folks slow down to look at a car accident also. Think the cause is morbid curiosity.

    Really Palin is entertaining in a matter similar to watching Favre retire.

    People always slow down for a train wreck or in this case tune in.
