  •  it seems they are 10X Keith O's (0+ / 0-)

    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.

      •  hmm (0+ / 0-)

        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.

          •  sorry, just saw this reply (0+ / 0-)

            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.
