Glenn Beck Agrees to End Fox News Show

Glenn Beck To End Fox Show

Despite your politics, Glenn Beck has been a polarizing figure.

We'd like to think that no matter who you are or what you believe, that you realize that he had some pretty absurd views from time to time. We're hoping that his popularity was due to mostly entertainment value instead of as an actual news source, but, we're probably and sadly wrong about that.

This news, that Glenn Beck has agreed to phase out his show and step down off the network as a host, comes with a brand new agreement between he and Fox. Apparently, the relationship will not end, as Beck's production company will continue to help produce and develop content for the station.

A lot of the speculation as to why Beck's ratings have been dropping has to do with that he's at his "best" when he's discussing politics and not harder news, such as the issues in Egypt and the Middle East:

Rumors have been swirling about Beck's television contract with Fox for months — and his ratings have been fizzling much longer. Through March 1, Beck's show was down 35 percent in total viewers in 2011 (averaging 1.9 million over the first seven weeks, compared to 2.93 million last year) and 44 percent in the 25-to-54-year-old demographic (447,000 vs. 793,000 a year ago). And it's seen nine consecutive month-over-month declines in total viewers, and seven among 25-to-54-year-olds.

Beck's ratings slump has been caused by a combination of factors, including a post-election hangover, a cyclical shift to harder news and his absurd views (even for conservatives) on Egypt and the Middle East.

Well, whatever the reason, a lot of people will be disappointed to see him go. A lot of people will equally be pumped up by the news. Either way, we're willing to bet that we haven't seen the last of him!

Are U unhappy or happy to see him leave??

    You're a pandering fool Perez. Don't try to have an opinion on anything political - you're useless and dumber than a rock.

    maybe he can back to being a morning radio zoo keeper.

    I've seen his show and he was SO preachy and annoying. Writing out his points on blackboard like we are all his students. Who would want to watch that when they get home from work?

    GLENN BECK IS SO FREAKY LOOKING. HE ALWAYS LOOKS LIKE HE SHOULD BE POSING IN A BABY BONNET WITH A PACIFIER AND WEARING A DIAPER.

    I'm secretly glad he's going because we have to pretend we like him. I hear him and John Boehner get together once a month and have crying contests. Of course, there is no one as good as either of these two but I'm just sayin'



  13. 13

    Good riddance.

    Re: LetttyB

    Hi Letty. I agree. He reminds me of the cartoon character Baby Huey. LOL.

    So ends the twelve step program on Fox.



  16. 16

    He's not leaving the network…just stopping the early show he has been doing. LOL Cheer up, he's still going to work with FOX.

    "Fox News and Mercury Radio Arts, Glenn Beck's production company, are proud to announce that they will work together to develop and produce a variety of television projects for air on the Fox News Channel as well as content for other platforms including Fox News’ digital properties. Glenn intends to transition off of his daily program, the third highest-rated in all of cable news, later this year".

    maybe he can be the opening act of the Sheen tour



  18. 18

    Maybe he will be working on the presidential campaign for 2012 :) I wish. Thank God he is not leaving the network, just the show. Can't wait for what he has next :)

    Re: President Sarah – Just so you know, Beck and Palin are friends. She doesn't have to pretend.

    Funny thing - libs all say he is crazy -BUT they are never able to dispute his facts. He tells the truth - hard to hear it but he and his staff research the facts - present them and no ever disproves them. Pretty scary stuff but so far he has been right.



  22. 22

    that guy is retarded



  23. 23

    I like Glenn, I don't always agree with him, but he has raised some good points to think about. I think we do need to get back to the job of taking care of our country and not everyone else.



  24. 24

    YAY!!! OH HAPPY DAY!!! GOOD BYE CRAZY!!!!



  25. 25

    He'll just be replaced with an even more obnoxious jerk. Doesn't matter.
