Rachel Maddow takes Al Franken’s Show into the charts:

Top two, Mike and Peter hold their own this week.

Rachel Maddow was really brilliant and has taken the Al Franken Show to No.3 in my ratings.

Marl Levine was ahead of the news cycle this week and has made a big jump up. Wish he was on at a more reasonable hour.

Bernie Ward has stoppped his rant about the charity and therefore makes it back among the top shows.

Sam Seder was great on his TV appearance about the War on Christmas. However, on his radio show he keeps shouting, and even at the lowest volume he comes through screaming. He is like my mother-in-law who thought that I would understand her Finnish better if she yelled it at me. Janeane Garofalo does not scream when she is on the phone - so probably that the best way she should come on this show.

Morning Sedition is in its last week and has held is name on the charts till the end. Sad to see such a good show be taken of the air.

Liz Brown was pushed off the charts with Rachel pushing Al Franken’s Show into the ratings. Her show web site has improved and is being updated, but her blogitude is still not updated. Obviously because she does not provoke a reaction from her live audience..
