    Wow, Fox just dominates the way CNN used to. How the mighty have fallen

  • Joan

    You must watch this and pass it around

    If CNN want their numbers way up get Beck back. You talk about an investigative reporter it’s Beck!

    @d.d.
    Good Evening d.d Hope you are doing well today. I am confused as to how I twisted your words. Would you please explain?

  • Jim

    Morning Joe should drop Mika, then they might get more viewers.What does she add to the show?’Nothing,’that my answer.All Mika does is roll her eyes ,make’s some snotty comments and tell everyone how smart her ‘daddy'(Brzezinski)is. In my opinion Mika is just like her daddy .Dr Brzezinski was in all reality a joke as National Security Advisor and Mika is a joke as a co-host.

  • Larry Carey

    Wow-nobody is watching flap mouth Matthews.

  • Larry Carey

    Mika is a dumb blonde

    Meanwhile, over 4,000,000 viewers tuned in to watch Bill Maher…he simply obliterates the competition.

    Is that 4 million a month? How many times is his show repeated to get 4 million? and finally, so what!!!!!

    @DB

    Is that 4 million a month? How many times is his show repeated to get 4 million? and finally, so what!!!!!

    If you read the article it says 4.1M an episode. I assume it counts all the episode, that being said considering how many people have HBO compared to other cable stations that’s very impressive

  • Mark

    counts all the times they air that episode I mean

    You really DO NOT have a clue do you!! Bill Maher is now competition for cable news???????? You need to go to a grocery store and ask the produce manager for 1 apple and 1 orange, then look at the difference between them, then you might start to understand the phrase “apples and oranges”

  • Joan

    I love these comparacins lol
    I have one “a woman running naked down a street in NYwas shown on CNN’s Anderson cooper at 8 PM beats O’Reilly in the 25-54 demo” :)

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ratboy: >>> …you might start to understand the phrase “apples and oranges” <<<

    Will "grape nuts" and "Grapefruit" work the same? ;-)

  • Scroll the Troll

    Maher sure didn’t give any boost to Piers lousy numbers Friday by being the guest host. Apples to apples

    I an not sure but I think The Andy Griffith "Aunt Bea's Pickles" episode beat Ed Schultz on Friday. Does that count?

  • Jill

    Supposing your four million number is a true representation of his nightly ratings, which I highly doubt, you do realize that Mahr is not employed by a news organization and purports not to be an opinion journalist, no?

    Hey Buddy, in case you didn’t know Bill Maher is on cable and his show is about the News….so theirs your apples vs apples.

  • Steve Perry

    @Jill

    Have you ever seen the show…it’s all about the news.

    Walker , Walker , Walker , Walker, Walker, Walker
