jane velez-mitchell

former local la news anchor is apparently doing quite well on cnn as glenn beck’s replacement.

that was from fridays show.

jane has turned the intensity up a few notches, which i guess is the nancy grace secret sauce, but unlike grace she has a heart.

according to huffpo, velez-mitchel is already beating beck’s best numbers

In its third full month on the air, “Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell” posted HLN’s largest 7PM audience since it launched its primetime block in February 2005. For January 2009, “Issues” averaged 531,000 total viewers and 221,000 Adults 25-54, a 50% increase in total viewers and a 46% increase in the demo over Beck’s January 2008 ratings.

Velez-Mitchell’s January ratings also represent an 8% increase in total viewers and a 19% increase in the demo over Beck’s last (and best) month on HLN. Beck’s last full month on the air there was September 2008, when he averaged 492,000 total viewers and 185,000 in the demo. Velez-Mitchell took over the time slot on October 17.

beck is doing better at fox, so thats nice.
