DONAHUE'S SHOW ON MSNBC is apparently doing so badly that it's calling the whole strategy into question. I've only seen a few minutes of it, so my opinion isn't worth much (especially as I don't like TV much anyway, and have never liked Phil much). But what I saw looked lame, and I can't say I'm surprised that nobody's watching. His numbers are dropping steadily (he's getting his butt kicked by Connie Chung, for goodness sake), suggesting that most people who watch share my opinion and don't come back. That's bad news for the network strategy of having, well, more stuff like that. And bad news in general. First Alan Keyes, now this.
Can I get a show on MSNBC? It couldn't do any worse.
