I dont yet have the latest hour by hour from the FAll but the
summer book showed WEEI dominating WBZ, especially in the
mid-day...WBZ improved as the day went on but WEEI still had the lead.
Same story on both weekend days. 
Among 25-54 females, WBZ beat WEEI for every afternoon hour.

In the 12+, they were virtually tied, with WBZ taking a slight lead.
But condidering everything it was still a huge drop off for WBZ --- going
from a 10 or 11 share on Saturday mornings(news) to about 3 in the
afternoons and then going back up in the evenings....
