Limbaugh's Ratings Taking a Big Hit

Those who've been stubbornly defending talk show host Rush Limbaugh against the organized boycott of his sponsors will take no heart in the latest news that his Arbitron ratings are in the toilet in a number of major markets. Politico reports:

"The conservative radio host's ratings fell 27 percent in the key 25-54 demo in New York City, 31 percent in Houston-Galveston, 40 percent in Seattle-Tacoma, and 35 percent in Jacksonville, according to a selection of the March 29-April 25 Arbitron ratings provided by an industry source." A 27 percent drop in Roanoke would be a bump on an elephant's butt. A 27 percent drop in the Big Apple is the elephant.

Limbaugh, who reportedly has lost millions since calling a young woman a "slut," cannot be happy about this. And he likely won't ignore it, either. The only way to get to this guy is through his back pocket and it appears that's working.

  1. I was having a rotten day. My back hurts, my checking account is laughable...then I read this article and I have a new and welcome smile on my previously sad face. Thank you Dan, and thank you Rush, for opening that mouth too wide this looks like it may have finally worked in sanity's favor. Looking forward to the article detailing a higher percentage of lost ratings.
