@bluerose3335 Megyn took a normally dead 1pm slot and was regularly getting 1m+ with a good 25-49 demo. That's why. Ailes sees her as the future of boosting their dominance over the 9pm slot. Ailes is taking the chance she will do the same at 9pm because Hannity's audience is stale and the 9pm slot could do a bit better. I'm giving you what I think is the reason here, not my personal thoughts.

@DonnyBlackmore Not even considering the media bias, blame Romney's horrid campaign. Look at how Obama utilized newer sampling and polling to target specific groups in specific states. Hate to say this but it's an absolute joke that Romney, as "smart" as he is, couldn't pay for or raise funds on something similar. Romney/RNC have nobody to blame but themselves.

@nibblesyble Love or hate him, he does get good ratings for the 7PM slot. It's a good lead-in to The Factor for them. Remember, this is about ratings and what will get more (and younger), not personal style.

Something tells me they're doing this to see if a "Colbert" or "Daily Show" style show would work.

@WilliamMorriss @PoCoTex @sallyjohanna Yes. Like I said above, he's mastered that 6-9pm slot. 

With all of the extra stuff he does, between the foundation and speeches, I don't think he could keep a daily radio show and do a weekend show, let alone a daily one.

Also, I don't care where he lives but this is important here. I think most of his time is spent in Virginia? Or is it Philadelphia? He'd have to drive into a studio each day to do a show. That would never happen. 

Moreover, like you said, he knows he's not good on TV like Rush is and I think is very discriminate with how many and who he interviews with.

Again, for any fan, I know it's a hope but it will never happen. I also think that he's a bit like Laura Ingraham where he's great on radio but would not work well in an hour-long TV show, like when Laura hosts The Factor.

@PNWShan I agree with you on the bad style with debates. Personally, I don't know why he doesn't stick to keeping the same slate of guests, instead of peddling out the same debates where you could cover your ears and know what <whomever will say>

However, if this was a problem, he wouldn't put up the same numbers, year-over-year, that he has. Could it grow? Sure, but I think Hannity has a ceiling due to his style.

 I think they're moving him to 10 because of how loyal Hannity's following is. He could air a show right after RedEye @ 3AM and he'd still have 85-90% of the same numbers. (See RedEye numbers.)

As much as Levin has a big following, here's three reasons he would not:

1.) Could you see him conforming to a daily news agenda where he has to do every segment but one on topics selected outside of his control? Laughs. If you didn't know, every single news network, including sports news, has specific items they go down throughout the day, notwithstanding breaking news or developing stories. So, basically, if there is a royal wedding going on, Levin would be forced to do one segment on this. Could you see it? Nope.

 2.) He's got a very loyal following at a timeslot that was normally death: 6-9pm. He's made it work. Why would you ever give this up? He'd have to do a weekend show or something like Stossel where it's only on the FoxBizChan.


3.) Something tells me that while many at News Corp respect Levin (Hannity being his obvious #1 fan) he would speak his mind too often and not get along with most.

Overall: It'd be a bad fit.

"But one would have to be naive to suggest that NFL players are oblivious to what’s going on in baseball, or that MLB may have actually surpassed the NFL in policing against banned substances and PEDs."

PED suspensions or up or the NFL is, for once, reporting positive tests and actually suspending guys? The former would require guys all of a sudden wanting to try PEDs because of.. all of the news of PED suspensions in baseball? Long shot. The NFL is feeling the pressure from MLB, along with side pressure with all of the Hernandez bad PR, so they're actually hitting guys they would not suspend before that test a little above what is allowed for epitest:test ratios and other banned substances.

Also, since 99% of the media is clueless, you might want to read about how "reliable" HGH testing is before you go and tout that it's a good thing, reliable or even worth it (hint: it's not but it makes great PR):

Every fanbase has idiots.. it's nice to call them out but it's not like you're going to stop it or do much. All the real fans not saying silly things can do is collectively sigh.
