Fox Network Is The New Idol

leave a comment »

Beating CBS’s “American Idol” network for the first time in ratings for a season, Fox News Network is pleased. It means not only are conservatives watching the best-rated news shows on television, but that liberals and young people are watching it as well. The main factor?

The historic victory left Reilly only mildly excited. That’s because Fox cultivates a young, hip image and concentrates its business on the 18-to-49-year-old demographic (where it was the top network for the fourth year in a row).

“We want as many people watching Fox as possible,” Reilly said. “We have to be mindful, we have to keep our brand rooted in what it has been historically. We’re not looking to turn into CBS.”

Congratulations Fox News! Now… Fox News, can you please be a little less balanced and not use liberal apologists on your shows as much? They are on more than conservatives.

Amazing how the leftwing supposedly professional journalist can’t get Bill O’Reilly’s name correct. Ratings envy?
