Cavuto to Imus: It’s Not Viewers’ Fault ‘That Your Show Is Awful’


By Merrill Knox Comment

Things got a little heated on FBN’s “Imus in the Morning” today between Don Imus and FBN anchor Neil Cavuto, who is a frequent guest on the show. At issue was Imus’ claim that his “bastard” viewers are to blame for his inconsistent ratings, which Cavuto, the senior vice president of FBN, disagreed with.  “My ratings are very consistent,” Cavuto said. “Yours are not, because people don’t like you.”

Watch the exchange, which gets interesting around 1:35 and includes references by Imus to both FBN EVP Kevin Magee and CEO Roger Ailes in a less-than-flattering light:
