Fox did boot Glen Bunk when he got effectively boycotted for crazy lying.

People are numb to this sort of shit, they just don't give a fuck. As you say, they just wanna enjoy their show and be entertained.

But the network cares about money coming in from advertisers. If enough of them pull their ads they’ll cancel the show. You’ll say he’ll go to another network but he’ll be damaged goods if the pressure persists. What network wants to take that chance?

He might survive this but it’ll hurt his pocketbook.

As long as there's views, there will be advertisers and other ways to make money.

NEW YORK (Nielsen Business Media) - Some of the nation's biggest advertisers are distancing themselves from Fox News host Glenn Beck after he called President Obama a racist during a July 28 broadcast.

Geico has pulled its ads from Fox News Channel's "The Glenn Beck Program." Lawyers.com, which is owned by LexisNexis, also has vowed not to advertise during the program, according to Color of Change, an African-American online political organization that has been urging advertisers to stop supporting the show.

Additionally, Procter & Gamble, Progressive Insurance and SC Johnson all said their ad placements during the broadcast were made in error and that they would correct the mistake.

------
Fox wanted to get Beck back under control. Beck didn't want to dial back the crazy. Beck got the boot.

When I shake my ignore file, I can hear them buzzing!

Fox News is preparing to cut ties with star anchor Bill O’Reilly, according to people close to the situation, after revelations that he and Fox parent 21st Century Fox settled multiple sexual harassment complaints led to an exodus of advertisers from his show and mounting pressure on the network.

Yep, it looks like he's out. Good. He's a piece of shit.

This is from the NY Times.

Quote: "After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel," 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, said in a statement.

Being an asshole isn't a felony. What he did apart from what he calls journalism, might be.
