He did, but it's dropped off precipitately lately. It's all about the bucks, so Fox is getting rid of him. He was getting to be quite a good advertiser for the aluminum foil industry, recently; they'll miss him.

He probably shouldn't have gone after George Soros so strongly. Sadly, I guess the lousy boycotts worked. I hate for the good guys to give in to the forces of evil.

Remember when Rush had a TV show and gave it up? He seems to still be doing quite well on radio. I wonder if O'Reilly will dump him, too, from their joint tours.

Rush has said many times that he gave it up because it was just way too much prep time and he didn't have as much control. Many people email him and call asking why he doesn't do it again, I don't blame him.

I saw exactly one episode of his TV show. However, if the rumors are true and he plans to start his own network with his show and many others, I have to say that I will probably tune in. I prefer Beck's radio show but I'd be interested in shows that showcase some the recurring themes he explores.

I used to come home early from the club some nights and play the Glenn Beck drinking game with my ex. His haters couldn't nail him dead to rights, but I guess Soros had to take him down somehow. At the very least, I'll miss founders Fridays.

Glenn Beck’s failing talk show on Fox down to last days
by Associated Press
April 07, 2011
NEW YORK — Glenn Beck later this year will end his Fox News Channel talk show, which has sunk in the ratings and has suffered from an advertiser boycott. …


Beck was a quick burn on Fox News Channel. Almost immediately after joining the network in January 2009, he doubled the ratings at his afternoon time slot. …


Yet some of his statements were getting him in trouble, and critics appealed to advertisers to boycott his show last summer after he said President Barack Obama had “a deep-seated hatred for white people.” …


More than 400 Fox advertisers told the company they did not want their commercials on Beck’s show. Beck’s advertisers were dominated by financial services firms, many touting gold as an investment.

Ailes dismissed the financial impact of the boycott but expressed some frustration with it. …



Viewers had begun turning away. Beck’s 5 p.m. ET show averaged 2.7 million viewers during the first three months of 2010, and was at just under 2 million for the same period this year, the Nielsen Co. said. His decline was sharper among younger viewers sought by advertisers.


http://www2.timesdispatch.com/entertainment/2011/apr/07/glenn-becks-failing-talk-show-fox-down-last-days-ar-956618/


So its in part because of dropping ratings, and advertisers pulling out. Beck was interesting, but as time progressed, he just turned too conspiratorial for me.

The Numbers

When Beck debuted on FNC at 5 p.m. 27 months ago, he averaged primetime-esque 2.2 million viewers.

His was definitely an older audience -- about 1.75 million of his followers were aged 50 or older.

Meanwhile, 550,000 of his crowd were in the 25-54 year old age bracket, which is the demographic news programming sells to advertisers.

His audience climbed as high as a quarterly average of about 2.6 million people in 2009; 2.1 million of them were aged 50 or older.

In late 2010 Beck’s quarterly performance dipped to just under 2 million viewers. But in the most recently concluded quarter, he was back up to attracting about 2 million viewers, half a million of whom were in the network’s targeted age group.

Beck’s biggest drop over his short run on FNC appears to have come among 18-49 year olds. He opened with a quarterly average of around 440,000 in that demo and, in the quarter that ended last month, he averaged around 312,000.

For those that can't read a simple chart. Beck got a total of a little over 2 million viewers to his show Thursday night. Of that 450,000 were in the coveted 25-54 age bracket. With another million plus coming from the older 35-64 audience.

His closest competitor in the "money" audience was Tingles with half of Becks numbers.

Glenn was probably looking to leave anyway. I listen to him and he was hinting at this a year ago. He is still popular and profitable.

Put his numbers at their lowest against any of his "opponent's" numbers and he whips them like Old sweaty mules. Glenn is moving his efforts into a different market. The libs will wail for the halcyon days when he was limited to whipping their hides on FOX.

YOUR CLAIM: A majority of people aged 24-54 watch Glenn Beck. "on any given night the vast majority of the 25-54 age bracket is watching his program." (http://www.conservativeunderground.com/forum505/showthread.php?t=38691&page=4).

You then posted some links that contradicted your claim. One of them was from April 2009, 2 years ago. For your sake--lets throw that one away.

The next one is great though.

http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2011/04/08/cable-news-ratings-for-thursday-april-7-2011/88780

Glenn Beck: 450
The Field: 506

Not a majority bud, not even close. These are links you posted to prove your own claim wrong. The realistic answer as to why you would be fucking stupid enough to do that is that you dont know what the word majority means.

Majority is 50% + 1. Glenn Beck does not have 50% + 1 of the people aged 24-54 who watch TV watching his show (remember, your sources here and not mine). Now I'm going to build myself a little straw man here, but I think he's accurate enough for me to infer some things and make it work.

Often people point to Beck's ratings as a defense of his drivel. There are two problems with this: (1) Ratings do not equal quality and (2) Glenn Beck is pork where they only serve chicken. I've heard enough on CU about the liberal media that exists everywhere but a few blogs and FOX. CNN and NBC are routinely called out as being simple mouthpieces for the Democratic Party, in the case of MSNBC and most of the time CNN that assumption is probably right.

SO. If Glenn Beck cant beat out CNN, MSNBC and they're little off-shoot channels, even though he is the lone conservative voice in a sea of liberal manure, doesn't that mean most people dont like Glenn Beck? Or at least prefer something else to Glenn Beck?

This is why you have to understand what a majority is, because very often having 5 or 6 choices can boil down to really picking between two things. American political punditry--you have the crazed Republican nuthangers and the crazed Democrat nuthangers-- is definitely one of those thing. According to your sources now and a view that I can nearlyg urantee you have, most people prefer the crazed Democrat nuthangers to Glenn Beck.

Your claim is not doing so well here at all. I can hear the sound of those 22 years of you with your thumb up your ass circling the drain.

Glad I didn't go with the stat that on any given night 500,000 people in the 25-54 age range watch his show that was in the press release.

Your pointy head would have exploded over that.

The next one is great though.

Glenn Beck: 450
The Field: 506

Not a majority bud, not even close. These are links you posted to prove your own claim wrong. The realistic answer as to why you would be fucking stupid enough to do that is that you dont know what the word majority means.


Often people point to Beck's ratings as a defense of his drivel. There are two problems with this: (1) Ratings do not equal quality and (2) Glenn Beck is pork where they only serve chicken.

LOL! You're kidding right? So instead of reading the numbers exactly as they are...you've got to add all the other numbers COMBINED to try and prove your point?

That's lame even for an obtuse asshat troll like yourself.

Beck on his own has on the night in question 450 thousand viewers in the 29-54 target demo. The next closest has half that.

And only in Libtard math could that not equal a majority.

I backed up my claim and you've failed miserably trying to refute it.


I've heard enough on CU about the liberal media that exists everywhere but a few blogs and FOX. CNN and NBC are routinely called out as being simple mouthpieces for the Democratic Party, in the case of MSNBC and most of the time CNN that assumption is probably right.

They all are. Along with the NY Times...The Boston Globe...LA Times...USA Today...etc etc.



This is why you have to understand what a majority is, because very often having 5 or 6 choices can boil down to really picking between two things. American political punditry--you have the crazed Republican nuthangers and the crazed Democrat nuthangers-- is definitely one of those thing. According to your sources now and a view that I can nearlyg urantee you have, most people prefer the crazed Democrat nuthangers to Glenn Beck.

You seem to be the one having trouble with the facts and the numbers here troll.

You're really having to go a long way down the rationalization road to try and make your case.

Should have gone a little farther.



Your claim is not doing so well here at all. I can hear the sound of those 22 years of you with your thumb up your ass circling the drain.


My claim is fine. The numbers speak for themselves. I stand by everything I've stated.

Until you can post some kind of statistical data...something from Nielsen or one of the other ratings monitoring firms that shows any different than what I've stated.

You have been and continue to be full of sht.

If you were truly right on all of this and I was as tragically wrong as you claim I am. You'd provide numbrs or statistical data to back it up.

Just like I have done.

But you won't because you can't.

It's just that simple.

There's still plenty of fear-mongering race-baiters out there to gin up the fringe-right base.

I think a few of them are running for prez.

Define "fear mongering race baiters" and use examples.

This should be fun. Stand by for a melon thumping good time.:rolleyes:

txradioguy... I used the sources you posted. I didnt even have to Google, you provided me with everything I needed.

The best was that you couldn't claim LIBREAL BAIS because you yourself submitted them! It was effortless and much more effective than me finding my own sources.

That is wrong. In order to have a majority you need 50% + 1, anything less and it isn't a majority.

Word Usage
majority as a singular or plural?When you use majority to refer to a group of people or things as a unit or whole, use a singular verb: A majority of the Senate intends to vote "Nay." When you use majority to refer to people within a group, use a plural verb: The majority of our students live on campus, with a minority living in the surrounding neighborhoods. In that sentence, each student is under consideration; hence, the plural verb. Ensure that any pronouns referring to majority are in the same number denoted by majority. Thus, it is incorrect to say A majority of the Senate has cast their votes. Say instead A majority of the Senate has cast its vote, or, if you are speaking of the senators as individuals, say A majority of the senators have cast their votes.

A majority, also known as a simple majority in the U.S., is a subset of a group consisting of more than half of the group. This should not be confused with a plurality, which is a subset having the largest number of parts.

I don't remember any witch hunts, there must be one specifically that stands out for you.

I for one liked Becks lectures. He usually proved his point with the moonbats own words and headlines, I like to be educated by someone who does the work to educate us on things that are usually hidden by the msm!
I like the way he thinks.

Every show was about a new conspiracy. Whether or not they were true, it just got boring to hear about again and again and again. I'm not saying he was pushing bad info, I just got tired of listening to it.

I can go with that, but the witch hunts were bad info and people were killed because of lies, bad comparison I guess.

Not hard at all skippy. I was pointing out that Tex was perhaps using a different definition or had misused the word "majority." Is that too hard a concept for a paint chip eating retard like you?:rolleyes:

Except he continued to defend that he did indeed means majority even after I initially brought it up. He didn't know what a majority was, I think that much is fairly clear. Usually when one of the hive gets proven wrong beyond reasonable doubt they just shut up, and Tex been pretty quiet lately.

Tex isn't a member of the hive. That is reserved for moonbat crazy liberals. Hmmm??:rolleyes:
