Peter Werbe holds 1st and 2nd spot this week

Peter Werbe was hosting the Mike Malloy Show all last week. Although his style is completely different from Mike's, he managed to keep the Mike Malloy show at the top of the talk show ratings, while his own show, held its 2nd spot.

It is difficult to know whether John Rothmann is a Liberal or whether he is just posing as one. His hypothetical questions and the way he treatsd some of his callers seems to point to his roots as a Nixonian, the Republican Government in which he served. I will have to watch this show more closely, as much of what John Rothmann says is far far from the Liberal Agenda and more Zionist.

Ray Taliaferro, Bernie Ward, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Mike Papantonio, still have great shows. Stephanie Miller was on holiday and her bubliness was not conveyed by her stand-in. Laura Flanders has a balanced show which keeps her amongst the top shows.

Randi was on TV and then she could not stop talking about her host. This is Randi at her worst as she follows the syndrome that the "last person who is nice to me is right". She kept talking about Lou Dobbs and how her 4 minutes on the show wass the greatest thing that could have happened in the universe. This performance, plus the way she overtalks on her callers, has dropped her ratings to the rock bottom, just ahead of John Rothmann.

Thom Hartmann is getting stale as he keeps repeating and repeating, but his sense of history is great. However, he still uses the micro-vision in many instances to influence his macro-views.

With all due regard, The Young Turks do not seem to have much idea as to how to run a TV programme. I wish they would stop expending such a huge amount of their funds with such boring visual TV! Stick to Radio is probably the best advice I can give them.

Al Franken is off the ratings and Sam Ceder did not help him get on them. Janeane Garofalo was probably the only person who gushed over am's performance on the Al Franken show!
