    As for shows like Levin and Savage and such, here's how it works: networks generally provide them to affiliates on an all-barter basis. In theory, the network makes money by selling national ads that run during the show, and local stations make some money selling local ads. In practice, I think a lot of these shows actually aren't all that profitable on either end...but they occupy time in off-hours to fill the schedule around the more profitable local morning shows and the higher-profile syndicated drive-time shows like Hannity.
    Sheesh.  It really wouldn't take much to have a "Best of the Blogs" hour or two that would be so much more informative.  Any of the "Top 10" blogs in any field - economics, international relations, science, music, etc.  Have one of their major contributors just do a review and predict run.  Relevant information from people with peer reputations.
