From Fox & Friends to MSNBC; from T.D. Jakes to Inside Edition, red-blooded, red-sweatered American Ken Bone continued to be all over the airwaves Tuesday, after being all over the airwaves on Monday.

Bone, who will be remembered more for his red sweater than for his question on energy policy at the presidential town hall debate Sunday night, kept track of his media appearances in an old school spiral notebook, which he shared on twitter.


@KenBone18 (apparently there are 17 other Ken Bones) had 7 followers on Twitter before Sunday’s debate. He now has 172,000. In an interview with CNN’s Carol Costello Monday morning he talked about what he was originally planning to wear: “I had a really nice olive suit, and my mother would have been very proud to see me wearing on television, but apparently I have gained about 30 pounds. And when I went to get in my car the morning of the debate I split the seat of my pants all the way open. So the red sweater is plan B. I’m glad it worked out.” Today on twitter he shared a picture of the suit:

In a quick search in TVEyes, between Monday morning and Tuesday night, “Ken Bone” was mentioned 129 times on broadcast TV and cable news. But listen up TV bookers: Ken will not be available Oct. 29. He has dinner plans with his grandma.
