Andrew Napolitano did something surprising when he served as Glenn Beck's fill-in last week: he matched Beck's ratings.
As The Wrap pointed out, Napolitano--who is Beck's regular fill-in, and who hosts his own show on Fox Business Network--averaged 1.85 million viewers for the week. That's about the same as Beck's average for 2011 so far: 1.904 million viewers. Napolitano also almost matched Beck in the A25-54 demo.
The news comes after reports that Fox News is "contemplating life without" Beck. Beck responded to the rumors on his Monday radio show--not giving any definitive answers but assuring his listeners that they might "still find each other" on Fox News.
