85. So why don't they include Comedy Central in the ratings?
Somebody must be keeping track for advertising. The Daily show runs right against o'Liely, doesn't it?

I sometimes watch Olberman, but not consistently like I used to watch CNN. The format is a little strange for me, but at least he occasionally speaks the truth. I could have done without the Michael Jackson puppet show.

Wouldn't it be interesting to see the percentage of viewers who CAN view the show actually viewing it (cleaning up the cable companies who don't offer it) and also how many businesses run FOX versus actual private viewers who opted to watch the show. Somehow I don't think the advertising is as effective if you are seeing a snippet of FOX while in the bank (or a restaurant with the sound turned down). I'd think the advertisers would want to know the difference.
