Derived Query Problem

I have a table (tblReportHits) that contains 3 columns ntid, report, date. I want to show by report and grouped by ntid the report count by ntid (an agent no). I want to do this since the begining and for the past 30 days.The table has been in existence about 4 months. So for each ntid (agent) I can show how many time he/she went to report X since the begining and for the  last 30 days, this is a "hits" calculation.

I thought I could do the above via a derived query. I am using SSMS and in a view when I list my selects in the from clause I end up with the following:

SELECT     derivedtbl_1.report, derivedtbl_1.Expr1, derivedtbl_1.ntid
FROM         (SELECT     report, COUNT(report) AS Expr1, ntid
                       FROM          dbo.tblReportHits
                       WHERE      (lastVisit > GETDATE() - 30)
                       GROUP BY report, ntid) AS derivedtbl_1 CROSS JOIN
                          (SELECT     report, COUNT(report) AS TotalHits, ntid
                            FROM          dbo.tblReportHits AS tblReportHits_1
                            GROUP BY report, ntid) AS derivedtbl_2

Thus I get a cross join. This also happens when I manually write the query

Select t.report, t.count, t.date, m.count
From (Select ntid, count(report) as count, date from  tblReportHits Group by ntid, date) as t,
(Select ntid, count(report) as count, date from  tblReportHits Group by ntid, date) as m

Am I trying to do something that is logically not possible?

so you want the output to be:

report, ntid, count for past month, count since beginning?

select a.report, a.ntid, a.c TotalCount, isnull(b.c, 0) MonthCount
from  (select report,ntid,count(*) c from tblreporthits group by report,ntid) a
left join (select report, ntid, count(*) c from tblreporthits where lastvisit > getdate() - 30 group by report,ntid) b
on a.report=b.report and a.ntid=b.ntid
