From the June 3 edition of Cumulus Media Networks' The Mike Huckabee Show:

Politico reports that when running for U.S. Senate in 1992, Fox News host Mike Huckabee called homosexuality "aberrant, unnatural and sinful." Huckabee does not appear to have changed his anti-gay rhetoric since becoming a Fox News host, comparing homosexuality to drug use and incest, claiming that same-sex marriage is a threat to a "stable society," and promoting virulently anti-gay guests.
As Media Matters noted earlier this month, Fox News host Mike Huckabee was given "a shot at broadcast television with a talk show on some Fox affiliates."
Unfortunately for the former Arkansas Governor, the show doesn't appear to be doing too well. According to a report from Broadcasting & Cable:
Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee's new talk show, which Fox is testing for six weeks this summer on seven stations, averaged a 0.6 rating/2 share in its Monday premiere. That's down 45% from its lead-in average of 1.1/4 and down 33% from its year-ago time period average.
As Huffington Post noted based on the Broadcasting & Cable report:
In some markets, the show drew 88% fewer viewers than its lead-in. The only market where "The Huckabee Show" outperformed its lead-in was Atlanta, B&C reports.
