Unrated this week:

This week, Ring of Fire, with hosts Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Mike Papantonio, jumps to fourth place behind a still climbing Laura Flanders. They also have hit 5 star rating. It would be great that instead of their Saturday show being repeated on Sunday, that they had a second show as they cover interesting topics and they seem to have no shortage of them!

Both Rachel Maddow and Stephanie Miller are climbing and improving their star ratings.

Politically Direct, hosted by David Bender, is improving greatly in the ratings.

There is also a big jump for Ecotalk hosted by Betsy Rosenberg. The new time of the broadcast, 12 noon Eastern Time on Saturdays (GMT 17:00) makes it good early evening listening for us in Finland.

Thom Hartmann is still going down. I found a couple of major Talk Show Hosts agreeing with me that his absolutely stressful schedule of 6 hours a day is now taking its toll on the quality and content of his programs.

Randi Rhodes is still dropping. At this rate, despite her still continued great audience figures, she may drop off my ratings, joining Al Franken and Ed Schultz on the unrated list.

Guy James was again unable to take to the air last Saturday and, therefore, goes unrated.

Thanks for all the great emails about the rating system. I am greatly obliged for the many suggestions. I will reveal the system shortly. I do not as yet want copies of this rating system online, so only when this site is a permanent feature will I reveal the methodology used to come to my ratings.

But remember, these are purely MY ratings, not YOURS. You have every right to your opinions, just as I have the right to mine.
