  1. We are now just short of a month past the election and I don’t see any real change, or return to past demo ratings, in the FNC/MSNBC numbers.

    Greta, in particular, seems to be suffering a decline from which she may be unable to return. I expect she will lose her #1 slot for the whole last quarter of 2012.

    With Laura Ingraham having just lost her radio show there may soon be serious talk of replacing GVS in the new year.

  2. Tic tic tic…

  3. I sure hope CNN can get their sh!t together.
