Those damned networks

What's Mallard raving about today?

Fox News, CBS, ABC, NBC.

It's impossible to know exactly what data Mallard is referring to if he's even referring to specific data at all.

That said, the networks have been losing viewers to cable for years, so the fact that Mallard's just now noticing the waning primacy of the networks only shows how out of touch he is. Not to mention the fact that the networks would just as soon stop covering the news if they could, so this is an apples-to-kumquats comparison.

Also, you should feel free to ignore the fact that Fox News is losing viewers to direct competitors MSNBC and CNN. I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, that Mallard did not mention that fact.

I swear I've seen this strip before!

I just don't want to slog through the archives at the website.

I'm glad he's done making resolutions. The rest of us have already broken ours.

And ABC, CBS, and NBC didn't lose me to Fox news. They lost me to the Daily Show and the BBC world news on PBS.

(And nobody says big 3 anymore, anyways, Fox (the network) has been around for 20 years now!)

Hey Mallard, McDonald's is the most successful restaurant on the planet- that doesn't mean the food ain't crap.

If this is an old strip, does that mean that Mallard is passed out in a pool of his own vomit after his 2-week bender. Does rooting for alcohol poisoning make me a bad person?
