Fox News replacement for Glenn Beck “The Five” ratings bomb in it’s debut

fox-news-logoI figured the ratings for the lame new Fox News show called “The Five” wouldn’t be anywhere near as good as Beck’s were. But I didn’t think they would be this bad. July 11th was the debut of “The Five” and the ratings didn’t even reach half of what Glenn Beck averaged on a daily basis. According to TV Newser, even Headline News beat “The Five” in the 25-54 demographic.

The Five barely topped a million viewers for the debut of the show. Beck’s show averaged about 2.5 million viewers per day and averaged about 450,000 in the A25-54 demographic on Fox News at 5pm Eastern. The 25-54 demographic only had 219,000 viewers.

    First off all, anyone tuning in for 5 minutes would have thought it was the Bob Beckel show — the wideload blowhard. Secondly, you cannot say it bombed by comparing it to its wunderkind predecessor. How did it measure up to other cable news channels in the 5 p.m. slot? That is the measure of success.
    Less Beckel, more Gutfeld.

    They couldn’t do worse turning the hour over to Laura Ingraham. But give THE FIVE some time. Gutfeld is a hoot and Bob Beckel, the thinking man’s liberal.

    Blowhard is mild. He is a thug. In 2000 he floated the idea of turning Bush electors. The show will not survive with him on it. It may not survive anyway.

    Simply sad ….. 2.5 Milllion people watched Beck every day because he had something important to say …. his correct exposure of the Progressive / Soros game plan and their deceitful perception management of the American people made Beck a top priority target to be silenced by the Left …… Fox will regret their cowardice in yielding to that blackmail since 2.5M viewers will NEVER watch ANY other show that they put in the 5PM slot.

    Bob Beckel will turn off most viewers.  I’m thinking the producers were on crack to think that veiwers want to watch him everyday.  Didn’t  they learn that with Alan Combs.  It is quite obvious that even Bob doesn’t even believe what he is saing.  Watching those ratings dwindle until the stars of Fox are put into the role.  That lead chick must be paying someone for the gig.

    I find all the talking over each other annoying, and Beckel, though I do not agree with most everything he says, is constantly being cut off, again annoying.  Thank goodness for GBTV and being able to watch Glenn again on 9/12 at his old time.

    Can’t watch this show, such poorly thought out programming. Can’t think of one good thing to say, please go back and try something else.  Pure failure in every aspect.

        This show sucks ,and that’s all I have to say!

  • Engineerable

    This show is not protraying the serious nature that our Country is in.  Its more like a reality show where the liberals and the so called conservatives slap each other on the back and laugh while discussing critical matters.  We watched this show maybe twice and promised not to watch it again.

  • Cherylblair83

    It takes four conservatives to debate one progressive.  Fair and balance, where.  Why are the fox ladies showing so much skin?  This show is a joke.

  • Navywife

    If it is its because people like me tuned in for a minute just to watch them make asses out of them selfs when

  • Navywife

    Turning women into mindless sex objects is not going to help your ratings you should know better. And most of the comments I,ve heard is that men don’t like the show but they might wach just to rub one off! In that case, you should get cuter pieces of meat in high heals and no clothes!

  • Navywife

    It’s the demos giving you ratings just to laugh and make fun of you.I should know,I,m one of them!
