A new show hosted by former Fox News host and current CNN host Chris Wallace fell flat in its debut. Nielsen Media Research tracked ratings for Wallace's show, Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, which debuted on CNN Sunday. The ratings show that there were 401,000 viewers, down 29% from the average, and 44,000 among those aged 25 to 54, down 64% from the average. Sunday Night in America with Trey Gowdy, a long-standing Fox News program that aired at the same time as Wallace's, received 1.3 million viewers and 78,000 viewers aged 25 to 54.

Who is talking to Chris? More importantly is who is watching and listening to Chris? The answer is no one. Bye Chris.

Gee. You mean nobody watches Chris Wallace. I coulda told you that when he was at FOX. Now fewer people watch him. Heck, Midnight Sermonette in Fargo ND would outdraw Chris Wallace and most the CNN crew. And it looks like all the new chief there is doing is re-arranging deck chairs on the Titanic. Well, except in this case, CNN isn't the Titanic. It's more like the SS Minnow.

Chris Wallace is a tad too uppity, condescending and snarky - not to be questioned or doubted by his ‘unwashed and not-as-smart-as-he-is viewers’. Never regularly watched him - that trend will definitely continue.

Last week while watching one of the best Westerns movies in Unforgiven by Clint Eastwood I saw the commercial for Wallace's new show on CNN. I have to say I had to chuckle because I remember when he took over for the late Tony Snow on FNC's Fox News Sunday. That's when the show started tanking but they still had good shows on the channel like the O'Reilly Factor and Hannity & Colmes. He started to really go off the rails as with most news shows during the PDJT administration. What did it for me was his pathetic performance as the second democrat debater during the first 2020 presidential debate. I'm extremely happy that his show is tanking right out the gate as he should've went to CNN a long time ago. Who's talking to Chris Wallace? Apparently no one.

Amazing how quickly Chris self-destructed. He had a pretty good gig at Fox News, then in December, he decamped for CNN+ and his pal Jeff Zucker becaues Fox was "too conservative;" Zucker leaves CNN under a cloud in February; CNN+ is shut down in Apri; and Chris' new interview show on CNN tanks. Chris has his own annus horribilis going in 2022 with three months left.

My take, other than Wallace can't draw flies, is that the so-called all important 25-54 demographic for advertisers is that the under 55 crowd doesn't watch TV news show. Of Wallace's ~400,000 viewers, roughly 10% are 25-54, and of Gowdy's 1.3 million, only 6% are in that demo. The only advertisers worth spending their money are Big Pharma shilling their meds to senior citizens and really old senior citizens. That's the demo that watches and probably the only demographic that still has a newspaper subscription...and cable. The under 55 demo probably streams what they want to watch for entertainment and get their news online. I'm 70 and I haven't watched a 'news' show, local or national, on any channel in many years, maybe even decades. Can get more info faster on the web and retain it better than by hearing it..

#18 has a good take on the situation. I will still watch some local news for the weather, local events., etc. We also never watch network entertainment shows...just stream what we like. We do watch Fox for The Five, Jesse, Tucker, Greg but almost never the straight news. Still get the little local daily more for the fact that I think a community needs a newspaper. Obits, local events and sports, etc. Then again, I am 80 years old and fit what 18 posted.

Hurricane Ian destroyed a section of the Sanibel Causeway connecting Sanibel Island and Captiva with mainland Florida, preventing all access for ground vehicles. Meteorologist Bryan Bennett first showed the collapsed section on Twitter, revealing a missing portion of the causeway dozens of feet long.

DETROIT -- Demolition of the long-vacant Packard auto plant in Detroit started Thursday as crews began tearing apart an already crumbling exterior wall of the massive structure. A demolition claw ripped and tugged on decades-old bricks and concrete along the upper floors of the old eastside factory that for generations has been a symbol of urban blight in the Motor City. (Snip) The Packard Automotive Co. built the plant in 1903, but by 1954, the structure had become obsolete and Packard car production was being done elsewhere.

Video of President Joe Biden saying that he would "end" the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline has resurfaced after Nord Stream 1 and 2 were damaged in what's been described as an act of sabotage. Fox News host Tucker Carlson suggested on Monday that Biden could be responsible for the damage to the Russian-owned pipelines, neither of which were operational when they experienced major leaks into the Baltic Sea. Several Twitter users shared an ABC News video of Biden from February 7, 2022, discussing Nord Stream 2 and appeared to link his previous remarks with damage to the pipelines. "Now

California finds itself on edge more than ever with a lingering fear: the threat of rolling blackouts for years to come. Despite new power plants, building huge battery storage systems and restarting some shuttered fossil fuel generators over the past couple of years, California relies heavily on energy from other states — the cavalry rushing over a distant hill. Sometimes the support does not show up when expected or at all. That was the case this month, when millions of residents got cellphone alerts urging them to cut their energy use as the state teetered close to blackouts in blazing heat.

President Biden once again shirked any responsibility for skyrocketing gas prices and instead demanded that gas stations cut prices at the pump for drivers despite their costs to stay in business being dictated by the market. [Video] His flawed economic reasoning is that oil prices are dropping. Oil prices are not the only factor in the price of a gallon of gasoline. Taxation and crushing regulation as well as progressive policies have a lot to do with it. It’s almost as if Biden and the left want to drive gas stations out of business.

Northwestern Medicine looked at 70 female-body patients between the ages of 13 and 24 who either received “top surgery,” or mastectomies (36 patients), or who received testosterone therapy but didn’t get mastectomies (34 patients). Researchers had patients report about their body image before they began their treatment path and then three months later.
