The top two once again were Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, respectively.

Two Comedy Central offerings — The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report — claimed the top two spots on the late-night talk-show website chart for the fourth week in a row, while TBS’ Conan bumped NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon out of third place.

The morning news shows were unchanged, as usual: NBC’s Today, ABC’s Good Morning America, and CBS’ The Early Show.

Rachel Maddow in a post-Keith Olbermann world

Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz profiles MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow in the wake of Keith Olbermann‘s split with the network:

Olbermann so thoroughly defined MSNBC as the voice of liberal outrage that Maddow, a self-described policy geek, must help forge a new identity. Maddow says she misses Olbermann but dismisses “suspicions” that the channel is toning things down, saying the ugly breakup “really wasn’t about the rest of us.”

And that  means Maddow’s — and MSNBC’s — targets haven’t changed.

FNC’s Megyn Kelly Opens Up to Glamour

Megyn Kelly, host of FNC’s “America Live,” will be featured in the November issue of Glamour.

Kelly gives advice to women about how to make the most of their lives — balancing career and home — something she learned after switching careers and later ending her first marriage. “I spent most of life from 24-31 at the office. I wasn’t going to people’s weddings, I wasn’t cultivating my marriage. I wasn’t happy.”

Kelly left a legal career for TV news, joining ABC affiliate WJLA in Washington, DC as a freelance general assignment reporter. She quickly caught the eye of FNC execs and was hired by the network in 2004.

“You can’t just coast along,” Kelly tells Glamour, “You need to be extraordinary. If you want a promotion or a raise, ask yourself, ‘How can I behave in a way to get my boss to believe I deserve one?’”

Earlier this year, after returning from maternity leave, Kelly got her first solo anchor gig with “America Live,”

“It’s all about prioritizing,” Kelly says about the balance. “I’m not out every night. You won’t see me at a lot of red carpet events. In my free time, I go home to my husband and son.”

Bed Bug Fears at News Corp. HQ

Earlier today, the Wall Street Journal reported on story close to home, and one that has become all too common in New York: bed bugs.

This time, and for the second time, the scare is at the News Corp. building on 6th Avenue.

According to this morning‘s WSJ article, a Barron’s employee on the fourth floor reported having bed bugs at home. So the company called in a bed bug-sniffing dog, steam cleaned the area and out of an abundance of caution, Fox Business employees on both the third and fourth floors were made aware. FBN has a control room on the fourth floor.

In 2007, the basement newsroom of Fox News Channel had its own bed bug scare.
