according to one LA Times report KO gets about 1/10 that number of viewers.
and according to the Baltimore Sun, Rachel Maddows has about half of GB's audience.
I have never (and will never) watch Glenn Beck, but there is a saying about glass houses and bricks that seems apropos to this diary.

making ratings boosting appearances on Meet the Press.
Rachel is becoming a national media star with serious journalism creds.
Beck is becoming a national joke.

but your point isn't entirely off
both Maddow and Olberman averaged .8, a little better than a third of what Beck got.
Of course, given that repeats of O'Reilly beat every (non-Fox) cable news show (with a 1.2), I'm not sure how meaningful that number is.
If there is anything I have learned from Scooby Doo, it is that the only thing to fear is crooked real estate developers.

but Beck's viewers are all old and/or poor. KO's and RM's are richer, better educated, and more able to buy stuff.
If I were an advertiser, I know whose show I'd want to advertise on.
Hint - not Beck's.

I don't know about the median income, but Beck seems to pretty consistently beat both Maddow and Olberman amongst 25-44 year olds- unless your definition of "young" or "old" is different.

both the income and age?

I didn't give any data on income, I don't know one way or the other.
The age breakdowns come from the link provided by the author in the diary.
