Only few shows rated this week

Like last week, this week has also been extreemely difficult to do the ratings. Many Talk Show Hosts have been on holiday. They had others fill in for them. Not quite the same.

Peter Werbe filled in for Mike Malloy for one day this week. Mike had a nasty throat. Peter did not have his own show last Sunday night / Monday morning.

Randi Rhodes was back and she had a couple of good guests. However, she has this horrible habit of talking over and for her guests, hardly giving them a chance to express their views. I do not know why she bothers to have guests on when she gives them so little time to do their talking. She does not get it that 4 hours of her non-stop talking is a bit much. She ruins the show by her "rude" behaviour. If I was her guest, I would walk off her set!

Sam Seder was on air and the show came up the ratings because of the fact that several shows were off.

Rachel Maddow has come back and goes up in the ratings. She shares the 4 hour spot in the morning with Mark Riley. They have the chance of making it big on the charts if they can keep their audience getting back to them. they have a nice international time slot.

Mike Webb is back on the air, but I do not know whether he is back on the station. He is his usual good self.

  1. Mike Malloy Show hosted by Mike Malloy or Peter Werbe ***** 5 (shows a week

  2. Bernie Ward ***** 4 shows a week

Happy listening as the Liberal Talk Shows resume their normal schedules from the coming week onwards. The battle of the hosts will begin again - and may the best ones win!
