First Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh and now Sean Hannity....
-From the Inquisitor
Sean Hannity’s ratings have plummeted after the 2012 election, as the conservative television host saw his audience dwindle after GOP challenger Mitt Romney failed to unseat President Obama.
Hannity saw his audience fall by about 50 percent after the election ended. Though it was not entirely unexpected that Hannity’s ratings would drop after the biggest political event in the last four years, his decline was sharper than other conservative pundits, Salon noted. Bill O’Reilly saw his viewership drop by only about one-third.
Among the important demographic of viewers aged 25-54, Sean Hannity’s ratings were even worse. More than half of what is known as the “money demo” stopped watching.
Many believe that Sean Hannity’s ratings suffered as a result of his failed rhetoric. Throughout the election he hyped up Mitt Romney’s chances to win the election, seizing on the Republican’s strong performance in the first presidential debate to all but call the election.
From the New York Daily News:
So what happened to Hannity?
The going wisdom is that viewers who basked in his preelection anti-Obama rhetoric tuned him out when they were stunned to wake up on Nov. 7 and discover that the President had won a second term — a scenario that Hannity had all but promised could never happen.
Before the election, Hannity was riding high in the ratings and topped thought leaders on the right, like Dick Morris, Ann Coulter, Peggy Noonan and talk radio bulldog Mark Levin, who predicted Obama would lose in a landslide.
As his ratings dropped, Sean Hannity also saw himself the center of attack from the right. Outspoken actor Ed Asner in early December claimed that Hannity was “behind on his rabies medicine.”

In a fitting coda to 2012, weve learned that the ratings for rock-ribbed conservative Sean Hannity cratered after Barack Obama won his second term, with viewers tuning out the Fox News Channel talk show host in droves.
Tous pour un, un pour tous
if what he lost happened to cnn or msnbc show no one would be watching and they would have a deficit. I think that is your point.
Don't think so....
Its gaining and has topped Fox News a couple of times.
The End is near...
Some conservatives got tired of being lied to by the likes of Hannity.
God one hopes so....
The above photo should be framed and hung by every true patriot!
Join the fight for YOUR liberty!
That picture is funny.

But it did not happen to them. The opposite did.
Rachel Maddow's Surge Is Fox News' Worst Ratings Nightmare
Liberals are so stupid. The reason why ratings are down is because conservatives are simply tuning out everything for a while until its time to do battle again.
After USC lost to Texas in the Rose Bowl for the BCS Title, I took time away from football message boards to forget about football for a while. Same thing is happening here.
Actually the most recent numbers have shown a return to normal numbers for both networks, with a slight gain on MSNBC taking numbers away from CNN. The numbers used to try and prove the point were taken during the vacation time of most of the Fox personalities and also around the Newtown killings, which is an event that always helped CNN numbers. But now that the regular schedule has returned, so have the numbers. Maddow still needs a telescope to see Hannity's back side.
Last weeks numbers showed Hannity beating Maddow with a 50% larger audience (1.5 million to 950K)
O'Reilly had twice the audience of Schultz and more than all the other cable networks combined. (2.1M to 950K against Schultz and 2.1M to 1.8M for entire market)
As for the rest of the line-up?
Fox and friends (AM) is nearly tripled Morning Joe and more than all cable networks combined
THE FIVE (which has become a juggernaut) has MORE THAN double the audience of Chris Matthews and 10% more viewers than all other cable networks combined. This includes an audience THREE TIMES the size of the "popular (?)" Situation Room!
Bret Baier has MORE THAN DOUBLE the audience of Sharpton and 30% MORE than all networks combined
Shepherd Smith has DOUBLE the audience of Matthews' prime time telecast - and a number slightly higher than all other networks combined.
Taking the day as a whole, Fox has double MSNBC and just under a number equal to all networks combined. As an advertising director the numbers most important are Adults 25-54 and 35-64 (buying power numbers). In the former Fox leads by 25% and in the latter by 50%.
Finally, the numbers starting from the election to the last week in December show at dip in the three weeks that followed, but still leading, and a consistent uptick every week since. The numbers analysis also shows that MSNBC is pulling its uptick from CNN, which has been in an utter free-fall. Also, the numbers "against the other networks" include the Fox sister station (Fox Business news) as a member of the competition. If the FBN numbers were added to the overall Fox numbers the numbers would be even more disproportionately leaning toward Fox. In fact, FBN has had its best month ever in December and it looks like many of the regular Fox viewers simply moved over to FBN as the Fiscal Cliff and financial matters took center stage.

It should also be noted that November was the weakest month for Fox during the year (post election) and yet was the number 2 cable network behind ESPN and the ONLY NEWS NETWORK in the Top 10. And that was with their crappy month.
Also, in late November and into mid-December Maddow was pulling between 1.3M and 1.5M and is now back to pre-election numbers between 800K and 950K
This reminds me of the numbers within the numbers that proved that Romney was going to win.
Perhaps you are correct. It may just be a case of conservatives being sore losers.
dip stick, did you adjust up your unemployment numbers again last month.....they were low again lol

You mad, Bruh?
nope not at all.......but he pretends to be a number guru but he always misses some.
He is like a lap dog and follows my post around.....you can never be mad at a puppy.
I wonder how much the real world is going to get in the way of his original agenda?
"...an economy hampered by restrictive tax rates will never produce enough jobs or enough profits" JFK
More of your irony. You call me a dipstick and in the same post you ask me about adjusting my unemployment numbers. My unemployment number have not changed in many years. It has been zero percent. I have not been unemployed for many years. I believe you meant to ask if the Department of Labor Statistics has updated its numbers, dipstick.
Who claimed to be a number guru? Link? This is just another one of your delusions.
Who follows you around? Another one of your delusions. I tend to respond to stupid posts. Accordingly, I tend to respond to you more than others.
Blem hit the nail on the head. You are just angry. You could avoid the delusions by seeking professional help.
I notice that you leave out the statistic that Fox News does not do nearly as well in the key demographic of 25-54 year olds. It tends to attract far more uneducated and elderly viewers. That is why it does not get as much in ad revenues as its viewership would suggest it should. That is a theme with conservative talk radio as well.
Does not do well... as compared to? Themselves?
He states that Fox leads by 25% in that category.
Should they lead by more?
I don't get why you are using the words "does not do well...".
Are you debating his 25% lead number?

You should reread my post. You misquoted me. I did not write: "does not do well." I wrote: "does not do NEARLY AS well" (emphasis added). Fox News beats the other stations by several time (hundreds of percent) in the over 54 category and does much better (I do not have the actual numbers) with the uneducated (they are included in the 25-54 group as well as the over 54 group).
