“The Fox Broadcasting Company will not air the Presidential Address to Congress on Wednesday, September 9 at 8:00 PM (ET). FOX’s sister networks, Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network will air the presidential address in its entirety. FOX will alert viewers with an on-screen graphic at the top of the 8:00 PM (ET) hour that the presidential address is available on Fox News Channel and the Fox Business Network.”


---------------------

At least one channel we don't have to suffer his teleprompter.

GOOD FOR THEM! :D It's about time someone stood up to this tool of a president and said we want our regularly scheduled program!

And it's pertinent to those two channels. In this day and age of Cable and internet - he doesn't need to be carried by all the local channels.

She's the congressional equivalent of the light up "Applause" sign they use on live TV shows.

Before the speech, they tell congress "When the bitch pops up, you clap"

It's funny because if you go back and watch similar speeches from the Bush administration - she's firmly seated and rarely claps.

That's always been true of Speakers of the House - except for John McCormack, who always looked like a propped-up corpse. ;)

And Fox's ratings will be huge for that time period.

But for those that are having a problem getting to sleep, that would scare them awake for the rest of the week!:p

The stats are in on what people wanted to watch, and it turns out, they didn't want to watch Obama.


FOX easily won the night dominating the adults 18-49 and adults 18-34 demos.

From 8pm-9pm the president averaged 21.2 million just on ABC (adults 18-49 rating/share =1.8/5, 7.4 million total viewers), CBS (1.2/4, 5.63 million) and NBC (1.9/6.8.16 million).


People want to jump the gun on declaring So You Think You Can Dance in the fall a mistake and a loser. For now, FOX laughs at you and will take its 2.7/8 adults 18-49 rating and 3.0/9 with adults 18-34 and not worry that there were only 6.465 million viewers. Leave Marc Berman to complain about that while FOX smiles at its year over year improvements even if it wasn’t as strong as the summer version of the show.

The jug eared Messiah is on TV ALL THE FUCKING TIME and like the old saying goes, "Familiarity breeds contempt." If he starts seeing polls that say he is on TV too much, he would probably call a nationally televised press conference on how he is NOT on TV too much!

In fact, during Bush's State of the Union speech in 2003, she was caught laughing at certain points.

She's a partisan hack and an undead creature of darkness as well. What I wanna know is - does she eat brains or suck blood? ;)
