TVNewser has a chart showing how close the battle is between Paula Zahn Now and Countdown. What’s interesting is that while Paula Zahn Now’s numbers have been declining for nearly a year in both Total Viewers and the Demo, Countdown’s numbers have been holding in a trading range in Total Viewers but declining in The Demo. This suggests that Olbermann’s audience is getting older while Paula’s audience is just plain getting smaller. But the data is far from conclusive on this.
BTW, are these Live numbers or Live + SD?
