KEITH IS UNDER JOY?
Posted by Andrew Roman on January 28, 2010
I know I shouldn’t laugh at this. It’s not like I’m personally invested. It isn’t as if I’m receiving any residual checks in the mail every time Fox News finishes ahead of the other cable networks. (I do, however, receive big fat direct Paypal deposits from the offices of the vast Right Wing Conspiracy on a rolling basis).
I really shouldn’t get such a charge out of this … but I can’t help it. I find it incredibly amusing.
Poor Keith Olbermann.
In the cable news ratings race for Tuesday, January 26th, The Big O finished behind that broadcasting mahatma, Joy Behar.
That’s right … Joy Behar beat Keith Olbermann in the ratings.
That’s like saying Chrone’s Disease edged out Ulcerative Colitis in the Irritable Bowel Sweepstakes.
I can’t be the only one who gets a charge out of this.
Of course, Behar received less than half of what Fox News’ lowest rated afternoon/evening program received – Shep Smith’s Fox Report, which hauled in over two million viewers – but she did also beat out ever-floundering Rachel Maddow.
MSNBC needs a hug.
While Bill O’Riley, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity each pulled in over three million viewers, there wasn’t a single host on CNN that even got one million.
Both of their viewers could not be reached for comment.
