Glenn Beck has been in the middle of controversy lately. A few weeks ago on Fox News, Beck called President Obama "racist," Which did not settle well with many Americans.
Many Americans started calling Beck's advertsers and demanding they pull their ads off Glenn Beck's 5 p.m. TV show on the Fox News Channel, which many advertisers did.
This has seemed to backfire. Beck on August 26th had over 3 million viewers and actually beat Bill O'Reilly in the demographic of 25 to 54-year-olds by 12,000 viewers. This is unusual since Beck airs before primetime, where fewer people watch TV.
