Mitch Perry Report for 11.12.15 — Does the DNC want anyone to watch their debates?

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Overnight returns give Fox Business Network’s prime-time GOP presidential debate showing a 8.9 rating among households and 13.5 million viewers in prime-time. That’s just shy of the 9.5 rating and 14 million viewers earned by CNBC’s recent coverage for the third.

He will inherit the theater, time slot and series title (though with an added “The”) owned for 22 years by David Letterman. Little wonder that Colbert’s disciples — his erstwhile Colbert Nation — wait anxiously to see what “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” will be…

Mitch Perry Report for 5.20.15 — The end of an era

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Good morning everyone. I’m getting off to a slightly later start than usual this morning, as I stayed up near midnight last night to see the Golden State Warriors defeat the Houston Rockets in a very exciting opening game of the Western Conference NBA Finals. As was the case while watching another Warrior playoff game last Friday night, I also caught a little of “The Late Show” with David Letterman, which I think you may have heard ends its run on CBS…
