    No, but low ratings pretty much equate to cultural irrelevance. Bill Buckley's Firing Line had substance, but I don't think his ratings compared to Beck's or O'Reilley's.

    He and Hannity would probably kill each other. Olbermann doesn't seem like the lay down and take it type like Colmes was.

    You mean other than actually having an audience?

    You're more right than not. MSNBC simply tried to duplicate what had worked so well over at fox. However, msnbc is in competition with the entire mainstream media whereas fox has no competition for it's audience.

    Maybe Hannity and Olbermann, but Beck's show is totally different than any cable news show.

    I remember watching Hannity and Colmes quite a bit when I was younger. Fox would get a democrat that actually looks like a weasel

    Which brings the question what is the real purpose of these pundits? I mean if shows with substance do not draw attention, than why do they watch shows with much less substance?

    No, the substance is about the same. Nothing substantial about them.

    I had to watch O'Reilly and Hannity for homework every night my 10th grade year or else I would fail part of my homework assignment.
