Fox News Host Literally Begs for Viewers

Reported by Melanie - September 1, 2006 -

On Tuesday I posted that Fox's primetime ratings are down 28% over last year. Apparently the pressure is getting to the Fox folks because today (September 1, 2006) on Your World w/Cavuto, Brenda Buttner, the host of Saturday morning's "Bulls & Bears," literally begged for viewers.

Buttner joined Cavuto and three panelists from her show, Gary B. Smith, Tobin Smith, and Scott Blier, for a roundtable discussion about whether or not the housing market would crash or come to a soft landing. At the end of the segment, Buttner said:

You know what? I was going to say that because Gary agreed with me I was going to call on him more often than anyone else. But, they all did and they're all so wonderful! YOU'VE GOTTA WATCH THE SHOW!!

(Buttner's emphasis.)
