What Excites Fox News? American Idol & It's Ratings

Reported by Donna - January 18, 2007 -

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith in a segment with Jane Skinner called Skinnerville they went to the big money maker for Fox - American Idol.

This is not the first time that they've gone to American Idol. When American Idol is in season as it is now, they will push it and push it and try and get some of those ratings for themselves.

Smith bragged that it pulled in 37 million viewers and said - "Raises for everyone."

Comment: Nothing like money to decide what you're going to put on your *news* show. Apparently Fox News is going to rely on American Idol and refer to them as much as possible during their shows.

They also had a promo to tell everyone about Stephen Colbert showing up on Bill O'Reilly's show tonight.
