Even though his opening night did big ratings, one year from now Hannity's show will have a lower average rating than "Hannity & Colmes". It will still probably do better than the shows on MSNBC and CNN, but a Colmes-less show will do worse. Why? No liberal strawman phony liberal like Colmes to knock around anymore will end up equaling a boring Hannity.
