    those who fall asleep watching tv. I don't watch Fox for exactly that reason. It's too irritating to allow me to fall asleep.

      nightmares too.  I'm not quite in the 65+ demo yet myself, but I'm getting closer every year.  I also have several friends who are and I know they usually go to bed fairly early.  

      That's why I'm always so mystified by the stats that show the average ages of Fox News viewers as 65 and over and yet their nighttime line up until recently has won most of the time slot rating for cable.  

      The only explanation that I can come up with is that people are falling asleep with the TV on.  I figure either that or they're  bored by the repetitive propaganda or their so scared they can't sleep.  

      Your comment about Megyn vs. Maddow brought an amusing mental image of a mud wrestling match between the two, so thanks for that.  I've never seen Kelly too much unless she's the butt of the joke on the Daily Show/ Colbert, but I've watched Rachel quite a bit and she seems like an intelligent person I'd like to have a discussion with over one of her Friday night cocktails.

        I live alone, so I treat myself like a baby. I eat when I'm hungry, and I sleep when I'm tired. I record everything I want to watch to avoid commercials. It also allows me to watch when I want. I also know nothing about Megyn Kelly except what hosts on MSNBC or Comedy Central insist I should know.
