In particular, The Ed Schultz show actually passed Limbaugh among the 25-54 age range in the nation's twelfth largest radio market. Schultz scored a 3.4 rating to Limbaugh's 3.2, climbing 1.1 ratings points from the winter figures.
"In his own backyard, how can Limbaugh lose to a liberal talker? What am I doing with a 3.4 and he's sitting with a 3.2?" Schultz asked RAW STORY in a telephone interview this morning. "We come a long way from being the poor little guy from North Dakota."
Good for Ed. I like Franken's show a lot more. There's good news for his show, too:
Al Franken, whose Air America program runs head-on with Rush in the noon to 3 p.m. slot, also made strides, posting 2.1 ratings among 25-64, up from 1.5 in the winter.
...The [Schultz and Franken] programs posted gains in every single age category.
No news on Morning Sedition, which I also really like. You know me. I'd walk on fire to listen to Mick Foley talk about how much he likes Christmas...
