Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show ratings soar, Fox News slumps in May numbers


Comedy Central and "The Daily Show" both surged in the May Nielsen ratings, posting their best numbers yet. "The Daily Show" dominated its time slot across all of television, cable and broadcast, and boasted a very impressive 19 percent increase in viewership in May alone.

Meanwhile, according to Mediabistro's TV Newser, Fox News suffered an overall decline in viewers in the highly sought-after 25-to-54-year old demographic for May, with total ratings down 10 percent. Bill O'Reilly's viewership dropped 9 percent, Sean Hannity's 6 percent, with Greta Van Susteren and Glenn Beck suffering the steepest losses with Van Susteren's "On the Record" losing 12 percent of its audience and Glenn Beck sliding a whopping 17 percent.

What does it say when it is recognized by viewers that the Comedy Channel delivers the news and FOX News delivers the clown posse comedy show?

Obviously, the free market must be stopped.  Outlaw Comedy Central now!!!!  Double dog dare you pretty please with sugar and a cherry on top.
