  • Doug

    Are the cable news ratings for Friday not available?

  • usnretirex2

    @Doug

    :?: :?: :?:

    Look at the post before this one

  • Raz

    How sad, the only time MSNBC can win is on the weekends and only in one demo with prison, sex and crime stories. Lame dudes, real lame.

  • LBSLES
  • TheBoss1

    So Raz, what does that about your beloved Fox News on the weekends when MSNBC wins the demo by airing “prison, sex and crime stories”? LOL

  • Lois

    Do people over 64 not count?? I smell age discrimination.

  • Jaffremans

    WITH MEN LIKE Ed Schulz, Matthews (swoons over Obama)O Donnell, and then the repulsive prejudice of PoliticsNation……. whaty is this world coming to,……

  • hamada

    I do not believe cable ratings because it is not accurate and not precise and alot of popular shows have been cancelled because of this

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Boss >>> So Raz, what does that about your beloved Fox News on the weekends when MSNBC wins the demo by airing “prison, sex and crime stories”? LOL <<<

    MSNBC wins the demo by THREE F-ING THOUSAND over FNC, and only by SEVEN THOUSAND Sunday Night.

    Meanwhile, Fox News slaughters MSNBC and CNN all week long, with numbers that are sometimes triple of what Dumb (CNN) and Dumber (MSNBC) get.

    Uhhhhh….So…Sunday night by a 'hair' is nothing to write home about.

  • Greg

    It’s not really surprising everywhere I’ve been Fox is in basic cable, but for where I live currently to get MSNBC, you have to pay an extra 50 bucks and most of the other channels are nothing worth watching.

  • Raz

    So Raz, what does that about your beloved Fox News on the weekends when MSNBC wins the demo by airing “prison, sex and crime stories”? LOL

    Well Bossy, as the old advertising saw says: sex sells. So if nekkid women is what MSNBC has provide to get to have viewers, then nekkid women it is.

    As for the other two, well I could say something about ‘old home week’ but I shall refrain.
