  1. So even when Fox is at it lowest, they still dominate. Is that supposed to be some BS to explain their post election ratings drop?

  2. FNC still dominates for the same reason most shows are hits: The average American likes simpleminded, crap television.

  3. imnotblue Says:

    And who says the left are elitist a$$holes, who think they’re better, smarter, and gosh darn it, more likeable than everyone else?

  4. It also seems they like simple minded crap presidents too Joe ;)
