1K

That's the increase, in percentages, of FBN viewers since the show premiered October 5th. Pretty cool.

Great about the ratings - let's hope they keep growing.

Just one gripe - why does Bo Dietl have to be on nearly every day?? We can't hit the mute fast enough when we hear those 2 words...

oh, geez, there's Imus cowering and apologizing again...to Sandra Smith.

I-Man kills his whole image when he does the apology thing.

Tim McCarver was good...too bad Imus didn't talk baseball with him...

lol

A REALLY awesome FULL page ad promoting Imus on FOX... in today's print edition of the Wall Street Journal.

Artwork is almost suitable for framing!...Imus on Mt Rushmore!

Way too cool!

Mike said...

Haha, I saw that at work, Al. Tomorrow's ad should have a picture of The Godfather with a dialogue balloon saying, "It's not personal, it's business. It's not the Fox Personal Network."

Mike that's excellent. include with it Imus's blurb, I can see MSNBC from my window :)

Al, is the add online?

CG said...

Hahaha, awesome.

I wish I could've seen the WSJ ad, but the newsstands near my apartment were sold out. :( Maybe I have legions of closeted Imus fans surrounding me and I never knew it.

Al said...

I was wondering if the ad was online, too, keyboard.

I actually saved the ad..it is THAT cool!

Al

Fox Business News ought to put it up on their website, they are owned by the same company, that owns the WSJ...just sayin a little blog traffic wouldn't hurt.

From David Hinkley of the NY Daily News. "Don Imus gives Fox Business Network first ratings victory over CNBC".

Fun show today! Especially the Pat Sommerall 'interview'...lol. And Sandra Smith recounting the time she was leading a track race and fell into the water...and then got run over by the other runners.

Favorite quote from today's funcast...
'Spit it out, Grandma"...
'This ain't Morning Joe"...

The funny thing about the Sandra Smith story was when Imus said it could be a good thing if she was with Marv Albert

lol

Anyone know when Cardinal Egan will make an appearance? Did they scrap that?

Bernie needs more air time! For me he's the best part of Imus.

DL said...

Pretty horrible guests this morning, but the cast made up for it. Good show. Agree with Al. The "Grandma" comment was classic Imus. What Imus did not bring up is that they are basically the same age. LOL!

Was able to get a copy of the Wall Street Journal. That is indeed one awesome Ad. That cost mucho dinero which indicates Fox is serious about this.

My dream is for Imus to beat Morning Joe. It should be called Unwatchable Joe. What a horrible show that is.

Al said...

Imus is beating CNBC? And FBN isn't even on basic cable around the country like CNBC is...

If FBN was on basic cable, maybe Imus could even beat Fox and Friends, especially when Fox and Friends has the band, 'Foreigner' on their show!

Also FBN is only in about 52 million HH.

These are the figures for the rest

CNN/HLN: 99.098 million HHs

CNBC: 96.78 million HHs

FNC: 96.26 million HHs

MSNBC: 92.64 million HHs
