I Wonder if There Is Any Correlation???

In the ideal cable news ratings world there would be the run up to a Presidential election *every* year. Sadly for MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann, it’s just one in four. Comparing Q3 2009 with Q3 2008, the show has lost 21% of its cable news target adults 25-54 demo , and 12% of its average viewership. 2012 will be a long time coming.

If you've been following the cable news ratings, and we know you have, you'll know Fox News has been dominating, even more than usual, in 2009. In the just-finished third quarter, Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC combined in Total Viewers and the A25-54 demo in both total day and primetime viewing.FNC is also the only cable news network to post across the board gains vs. Q3 '08.

FNC had the top 10 programs in cable news. "The O'Reilly Factor" has been the #1 cable news show for 106 consecutive months. From 4pm ET to 11pm ET, all of FNC's programs showed growth, most double digits:

Rank/Show — Total Viewer / A25-54 demo growth:

2. "Hannity," -- 9% / 17%
3. "Glenn Beck," -- 89% / 136%
4. "On the Record," -- 16% / 21%
5. "Special Report" -- 20% / 34%
6. "The FOX Report" -- 9% / 18%
9. "Your World" -- 16% / 27%

Is it any surprise that Glenn Beck has grown 136%? The Tea Parties and the 9/12 DC party w/ over a million people, that the MSM didn't cover at all, or if they did, portrayed the people as fascists and racists? People have to have been asking themselves, "what are they talking about, I should google this." Go FNC, go Real reporting. And God Bless the Jester
