    the contract for his tv show was not renewed. do you really think that was beck's choice? contrary to what a lot of you posted, his rating are going in the crapper, and advertisers have been dropping like flies. so yes, he was fired.

    Yes, I think it was his choice. He's been talking about changing things up for months now. And no, 2 million viewers on cable news at 5 p.m. isn't "going in the crapper". If that's what it is to you, then holy cow....every single show on MSNBC and CNN should be dissolved.

    And, no, he wasn't fired, honey. I know you want it to be true so very badly. Fired people don't still work with the company.

    Yes, ratings are down. However, he's still the #3 show on Fox News. I'm thinking that's not "in the crapper", as you call it.

    And his ratings had been dropping and his sponsors where dropping and his bosses where not happy for that period of time too. Whether FOX was simply unwilling to renew the show, or Beck was not willing to accept the terms FOX was willing to offer, or something else no one knows, but the strong evidence is that Beck was, if not fired, then offered little enough that it amounted to the same thing.

    Don't you think he would have stayed if the ratings were better, though?

    Most of his sponsors dropped 2 years ago and simply moved their commercials to another show on the same network. If Fox was upset with him, they would've cancelled the show then.

    I believe this was probably mostly Beck's idea. He's been restless for a long time. People who actually listen to him on a regular basis instead of listening to other people talk about him aren't really all that surprised by this.

    Beck's show is the #3 show, in all cable news shows; right where he's been for years. If his ratings are down, then everyone's ratings are down.

    He has the #3 rated show on Fox, so I don't think it had much to do with ratings. If they were 3 million or 4 million again? I don't know. I just know what I've heard him saying for months now. He wants to get out of NYC.
