I tell you men and women, I have no way, no way at all of knowing whether this will turn out to be correct, but this is what I am hearing from a local entertainment source of uncertain reliability as to what the next ratings book is going to show for May 21-June 17:
-- Continued increases in overall ratings for The Ticket.
-- Last couple of months showing the Ticket's best ratings going back to the fall.
-- Musers and Hardline the top-rated sports shows in the entire market, with the Musers annihilating Shan/RJ and M/M.
-- Hardline continuing to show increases for the past several months.
-- Continuing the earlier-observed trend, numbers overall not as big for The Ticket or the other sports talkers but The Ticket still arguably the overall leader.
-- Good days for G-Bag and B/S appear to coincide with Ranger days.
If these observations prove correct, it ain't the good old days, but it does tend to support Jeff Catlin's "hang tough" stance in the face of grumbling about content and (especially) Corby. My correspondent did not offer any news regarding BaD or Norm, nor did it offer numbers so we could see for ourselves.
Nevertheless, I thought I'd take a chance on this source and pass this along. We'll see if it's supported by reports from official sources.
