The Ratings Game - Did You Know - American Idol Is On Tonight?

Reported by Donna - May 24, 2006

And Fox will tell as often as they can on their News show. Fox loves to live by the ratings. Shepard Smith sometimes seems to salivate over the number of people who watch American Idol. He says (since Idol is on the Fox Network) the more money that Idol makes the better for all of them.

Well, they didn't displease today. On Fox News Live with Bill Hemmer (12 - 1 p.m.) and Studio B with Trace Gallagher substituting for Shepard Smith they had several mentions and each did a segment on the finale of American Idol tonight.

Comment: Remember that poll that showed that almost half of the voters on American Idol thought their vote for American Idol was just as important as their vote for President of the U.S? Well, this is the audience tonight. Fox continues the promotion because money is the bottom line, isn't it? Cross promotion - Fox has made an art of it.
