are leaving in droves
Glenn Beck has been in denial about his ratings
slide for weeks now.
First, he claimed that there is no ratings decline
for his Fox News show,

On Friday, Beck pulled an all time low of 1.776
million viewers, and while this is good enough
to handily win his time slot, this marked a new

3 million total viewers a day. At his peak, Beck could draw
3.4 million plus viewers a day. There was talk

Beck’s average number of viewers had fallen to
2.2 million, but on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, he was under that.
