    OK, back to a million-each for the first showings of Rachel and the guy who spells Laurence wrong. It should be that way every night, but obviously there was interest in an accurate, intelligent discussion of the SCOTUS decisions. Oh, and John Fugelsang was substitute host for Eliot Spitzer on Current TV. He’s great.

  • Patrick W.

    Foxnews wins again!!! Yippeeee! “The Five” is the best show on any of the news channels. I’m still laughing at msnbc for hiring that dumb liberal racist al sharpton. What a clown!!!!!!!!!

  • Tony

    Lawrence O’Donnell beats Fox and Friends in demo. Not bad.

  • Suikostinger

    Who was the guy that said Michelle Obama said “All this for a da*n flag”? You got that from a mass email didn’t you? Why is it that most of the people that post in here get their news from FAKE mass emails, then try to show it off like it’s a fact?

    “Now comes a new twist on a claim that sprouted a year ago in the conservative blogosphere: the suggestion that during 9/11 memorial ceremonies, the first lady could be seen saying to her husband, “All this for a damn flag.”

    Like many chain emails, this one has evolved since earlier versions. The detail about the lip-reading instructor at the River School was added recently, presumably to give the email more credibility.

    But that credibility crumbled when we spoke with Nancy Mellon, director of the River School. She described it as a Washington school that serves a wide range of children from 18 months to third grade. It is known for its strong program for hearing-impaired children, but they account for just 15 percent of the students.

    More importantly, the River School doesn’t teach lip-reading, Mellon said, and no one from the faculty has provided any interpretation of the video.

    “It’s definitely not us,” she said. “We would never try to do anything like this.”

    The school has gotten so many inquiries about the chain email that last week it posted this message on its website:

    Please be advised that The River School was not involved in any translation services for a recent video clip currently circulating on the Internet.”

  • scoob

    @ Tony

    Why would you try to compare shows in 2 different demos? Pretty apples vs. oranges to me.

  • scoob

    ^ 2 different time slots

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    @@@@@@@ Patrick W.

    Where are you getting your information regarding Al Sharpton?

  • Harry

    Man, two days in and The Cycle is already better than The Five(which wasn’t hard to do).

  • Jeff


    I have not caught The Cycle yet. Looking forward too it though.

    No DB. You are vile. PERIOD. I’ve been watching people in here for awhile and you are VILE! If I was stinger I would have called you a name way before he did. I’m surprised that he has taken your crap for this long without calling you names. The only difference is that he actually had the balls to use the actual words of dim wit and idiot, while you use innuendo and vocabulary gymnastics to call him and anyone else in here that disagrees with you names.

    BRAVO!!! Well said!!

  • Italian Mike

    I tried the subtle approach. Tell us how you really feel Jess.

  • Italian Mike

    No, you must give credit were credit is due. O’Donnell and Maddow those are good numbers. Not great but a huge improvement. I’m starting to feel a little sick. I should have cooked this crow before I ate it.

  • Jeff

    @suiko, the flag non-story re: Michelle Obama I recall it being on or created by the Breitbart lunatics with one of their conspiracy “speech analysts” which media matters tracked him to actually being a right wing blogger.

    Then the loons called me a commie over my response, luv it. Hail Putin! Lol

    @L. Glavin, love current channel when I can catch it, enjoy Bill Press on radio or on current tv, then Stephanie Miller on both radio and current tv as well. However she plays way too many sound effects ALL the time.

    Question and Answer session of the day,

    Gov. Romney what did you have for Breakfast??

    “I had, President Obama has failed to lead our nation”

    Boring broken record…….ugh!

  • Italian Mike


    You may be able to win dinner with President Romney in January.

  • Italian Mike

    All is not lost I see Tingles numbers are still in the tank.

  • Michael


    ??Lawrence O’Donnell beats Fox and Friends in demo. Not bad.?? As in 10pm primetime beats 5pm non-primetime? Oh, I get it. Would not your reasoning also indicate that vanilla ice cream beats spinach every time?

  • Steve Perry

    I wonder if the ‘Outsourcer-in-Chief’ will try and legalize polygamy if he becomes President. I wouldn’t mind having a second wife, but this one’s going to be a Liberal…lol.


  • Italian Mike

    Steve Perry

    A rather ugly comment from one of you opened minded tolerant progressives. If you said such a thing about a preferred minority group you would be labeled a bigot by the left.

  • Letmethink

    How much longer will CNN keep early start/starting point?? No one is watching–

  • betty

    TWO (2) Things…………….
    1.You can catch Michele Obama SAYING ” and all this for an American flag” on youtube,see for youeself.
    2.Pretty sneaky to compare Morning Ratings when the people who pull the wagon are WORKING, to evening numbers when most people are home watching TV.
    Duh,Duh, and more Duh. LOL. LOL, LOL.

  • Italian Mike

    CNN needs James Earl Jones back with “This is CNN.” Just so everyone will know that they are still there.
