    Why post L+SD? Who DVRs cable news anyway?

  • Denise

    The CNN numbers are grim, soon after the elections MSNBC will be he same.

  • Raz

    Got to watch The Five on Monday for the first time, meaning I finally got a day off from work to see it. I like it. It’s funny yet gives all the various points of view.

  • Matt

    I DVR The Five everyday because I’m at work when it airs

  • Bill

    Those ratings for Squawk Box are terrible

  • Ratboy

    Key demo – Schultz + Maddow = 408
    Hannity + nobody = 402
    OReilly + nobody = 436


  • Ratboy

    How would you like to be Chris Matthews and have to admit that AL SHARPTON beat you in EVERY catagory!! :shock: :lol:

  • Rick

    The Fox Report w/S. Smith numbers have been soft lately.

    Fact Check: CNN Report Delves Into False Claims From Obama, Romney Campaigns

    Distortions and mistruths are part of the package deal voters get during an election season. While both sides will decry the each other’s inaccurate claims, that won’t keep them from spreading inaccuracies themselves. Leaving voters to sort out the mess. President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are no exceptions. Thus was the subject of a CNN report by Jim Acosta.

    The segment took a look at a few of many fudged facts disseminated by both campaigns. Take an Obama ad, for example, which criticizes Romney’s Massachusetts record, specifically for the $18 billion in debt he left behind. What the ad fails to mention? That figure was at $16 billion when Romney took office.

  • REM

    new poll in Iowa Romney 46 O 45

    Obama is toast Romney in a landslide

    Obama is losing his base

    Obama concession speach will be fun to watch

  • Rod D

    @ Ratboy

    Michael Eric Dyson was filling in for Ed last night. Hence the weaker than usual ratings in the demo.

    I’d like to see someone new in Dyson’s place as substitute host — Chris Hayes, Ezra Klein, or Ron Reagan would probably do a better job than Dyson.

  • DB

    Rod D. I’m sure people in the millions would tune in to hear one of those three!!

  • Chriscee

    Rod D

    Those are ED’s usual numbers…rather he’s on tv or not. Ed sunk to a new low with his Wisconsin drivel and quite frankly I think he turned ALOT of his viewers off.

  • betty

    Chissy “tingles” Mathews numbers are Falling by the Hundreds of Thousands.
    and he says he’ll never live down the “tingles” remark…….well, Chissy
    should “think before he speaks”…..as if.

  • Tony

    Shepard Smith’s ratings are not that good. He seems to have lost some viewers.

  • DB

    Tony, Shep is letting his liberal leanings come out more and more in his news cast. No bias should be in a news program and we have certainly seen enough liberal bias in news casts on all the other networks. I turn to something else whenever Shep is on.

  • Jeff

    There are those who tell the truth. There are those who distort the truth. And then there’s Mitt Romney.

    Every political campaign exaggerates and dissembles. This practice may not be admirable — it’s surely one reason so many Americans are disenchanted with politics — but it’s something we’ve all come to expect. Candidates claim the right to make any boast or accusation as long as there’s a kernel of veracity.
    Even by this lax standard, Romney too often fails. Not to put too fine a point on it, he lies. Quite a bit.
    “Since President Obama assumed office three years ago, federal spending has accelerated at a pace without precedent in recent history,” Romney claims on his campaign Web site. This is utterly false. The truth is that spending has slowed markedly under Obama.

  • Suikostinger


    No bias should be in a news program……

    Yet you like Fox News huh? Blind sheep is blind I guess.

  • betty

    How can MSNBC allow the likes of Al Sharpton to have a TV show – – bottom of the barrel -and they wonder why their ratings are down
    Hard to respect them after this show was allowed to be on the air -plus the fact that he is a racist in the worst way

  • Tony

    ” Tony, Shep is letting his liberal leanings come out more and more in his news cast. No bias should be in a news program…”

    Hannity is the most biased news program on TV but he’s got 2M viewers.
