It’s almost as if the public’s appetite for right-wing sociopaths has limits:
Jane Velez-Mitchell, the HLN host who replaced Glenn Beck when he jumped ship for Fox News, is already topping Beck’s ratings from when he held the time slot.
In its third full month on the air, “Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell” posted HLN’s largest 7PM audience since it launched its primetime block in February 2005. For January 2009, “Issues” averaged 531,000 total viewers and 221,000 Adults 25–54, a 50% increase in total viewers and a 46% increase in the demo over Beck’s January 2008 ratings.
I have this crazy idea that if liberals were allowed on television outside of a two-hour block on MSNBC that some people might watch it.
