Big O called us into a strategy meeting a while ago in the Oval to talk about the declining ratings of our TV show.
Gibbsy blamed it on people's Tivos, and that 40 million viewers was nothing to sneeze at. "But I was on every channel anybody watches, so the number should have been higher," Big O insisted.
But Rahm blamed the press corps, that they weren't good-looking enough to drive eyeballs to the show. "All the hot ones are up on Capitol Hill ... or at Fox," he said.
I have my own suspicions of why the ratings are cratering on us, but couldn't share them with Gibbsy in the room. But I did suggest that perhaps the Big Guy needs to spice things up a bit for the audience. For example, on yesterday's townhall, Big Guy talked about his nurse fetish for a good five minutes, and suddenly the web traffic tripled, and with a whole new demographic, too. Of course, most of the IP addresses were from prisons, and those guys can't vote. But they still care about health care.
