Glenn Beck mocks, ridicules, and despises World Cup Soccer... and makes a complete idiot of himself in the process.

There is absolutely no doubt that FOX News dominates the world of cable news. The top ten political infomercial/programs on cable TV are all aired on FOX. MSNBC's top rated show, Countdown With Keith Olbermann, comes in at number eleven, and only draws one half of Beck's audience and one third of FOX News leader Bill O'Reilly.
Glenn Beck's audience of 2 million viewers, especially during the 5:00pm Eastern time slot, is actually quite remarkable... that is until you compare his numbers to those of another cable TV icon, SpongeBob Squarepants (D-Bikini Bottom).
Mr. Squarepants' show, at 3.8 million viewers, draws almost twice the audience that Beck does and about 25 percent higher than "The O'Reilly Factor."
In addition to SpongeBob Squarepants, The Glenn Beck Show also loses handily to WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment), iCarly, Penguins of Madagascar, True Jackson VP, and South Park.
The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, which has been the target of past Beck ratings taunts, only has a 10 percent smaller audience.

Glenn Beck should be proud, not of what he does, but of how well he does it. He's living, breathing proof that if you work hard, have talent, and have no interest in doing anything other than spewing lies and making a shitload of money, you can live the high life.
But whenever Mr. Beck is bursting with narcissistic pride he should be mindful of one thing: For every person that is listening to his latest rant on how Woodrow Wilson was worse than Adolph Hitler, or how Cass Sunstein is the most dangerous man in America, twice that many people are watching SpongeBob Squarepants blow bubbles with Patrick Starfish, and ten times that many are riveted to a sport that, according to Mr. Beck, nobody cares about.
(Pssst Glenn, I heard that William Ayers and Van Jones love soccer... they even call it "football." Nail those Marxist bastards).
