Stephen Colbert last night had some fun with Fox Business talent Stuart Varney, who easily makes the Top 10 Most Fascinating Cable Personalities list. Varney did a segment narrating his encounters with people on the street — including at a bus stop — and Colbert wondered aloud: Wow, people actually watch Fox Business?

Whereas the flagship Fox News destroys all comers in the ratings business, Fox Business has struggled, as noted in this Reuters story that Colbert highlighted in his program. Citing his anecdotal encounters with people on the street, however, Varney said in his segment — title: “True story: Varney viewers are everywhere” — that “Fox is more widely watched than you are led to believe.” Okay.
