King beats Olbermann, Fox beats everyone

by editor on February 11, 2009

Highlights of this week’s cable news ratings. Fox continues its run of dominant ratings thanks to growing dissatisfaction with the Keystone Kops administration in Washington, DC. Larry King topped Keith Olbermaniac. Rachel Maddow climbed back into the top ten dispite rather lackluster numbers.

Here’s a look at the top ten cable TV shows for February 11, 2009:

Network Program Total Audience
Fox News O’Reilly 3,494,000
Fox News Hannity 2,658,000
Fox News Beck 2,370,000
Fox News Baier 2,305,000
Fox News Shep Smith 2,190,000
Fox News Greta 1,847,000
CNN King 1,761,000
MSNBC Olbermann 1,485,000
CNN Cooper 1,286,000
CNN Blitzer 1,246,000
MSNBC Maddow 1,240,000

UPDATE: Math was never our strong suit. Looks like Maddow didn’t climb into the top ten after all. Her show was actually Number 11.

Beck is on at like 2pm PST and he is very close to Hannity. They need to move him to 7pm and he will be the #1 show they have!

How about replacing Greta with Beck? I’d tune in for that. But that’s just me. I can’t stand that Greta wench.

Apologies for calling that Greta wench a ‘wench’.

Wonder if Greta will be allowed to do a story on the beheading in Buffalo. Seems that’s more interesting than some of her endless Caylee Antony drivel. And, no one else in the media has dared to cover it.
