The numbers are in for the first episode of Glenn Beck’s new Fox News show.  The first episode, which was helped tremendously by an interview with former Republican Vice Presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin, the show drew a time-period high 2,388,000 total viewers and a second place 467,000 adults 25-54.

In total viewers, Beck’s show was up 92% over the January ’09 average of America’s News HQ and up 124% over the Q1 ’08 average of the same show.  In the demo, it was up 70% and 106%, respectively.

Growth was even stronger compared to the last month of Beck’s HLN show.  His first show was up a whopping 321% in total viewers and 119% in the demo.

Conservative talk radio personality Glenn Beck, who hosted a primetime show on CNN Headline News, will debut his new show on Fox News Channel sooner than originally expected.  His 5 p.m. program will now debut on January 19th, a few weeks earlier than the originally expected February debut.

Thank you for having Gov. Sarah Palin on the show and the wives of Ramos and Campion. Best wishes on your new show.

So far, Glenn has come out of the gate looking to win this time slot. His guests so far this week have included, Gov Sarah Palin, Gary Sinise, Rudy Guiliani, Ben Stein, the wives of Ramos and Compean, and Michelle Maulkin. Good luck Glenn. We need more common sense shows like you!

I never though I would see it, but Glenn Beck outreaches Bill O’Rilley in identifying problems with our government and society. Ms. Colter is a second best.

Hope his show does amazingly well, ratings wise. I always hoped he’d come to Fox News. WooT!

We have a blog which is called Foundations of Morality. It was written in the days of Abraham Lincoln but since it is public domain we have re-written it to apply to modern day life. You can find it at FoundationsOfMorality.com You were speaking about how our nation has gotten away from God and this addresses the issue very well.

Mr. Beck,

We want to thank you so very, very much for the stand for God you took on the program we watched on Saturday February 7, 2009.
