  • don

    im first yea

  • XYZ

    HOLY SMOKES,…MSNBC prime is killing it.
    Heck, even CNN joined in the fun yesterday.

  • Marco

    Damn, MSNBC is comparable to Fox and not only beat them multiple times in the vaunted 25-54 demo but almost flat out beat them in total viewers several times.

  • Tony

    Rachel Maddow destroys Hannity in the demo. Actually it looks like Maddow even beat O’Reilly. Maddow was nr.1.

    Lawrence O’Donnell crushes Greta, beats Hannity too. Huge ratings for Ed.

    1. Maddow: 703K
    2. O’Reilly: 682K
    3. O’Donnell: 535K
    4. Hannity: 513K
    5. Schultz: 487K

  • Keynes

    Wow – Rachel Maddow was #1 in primetime in the demo – even beat O’Reily, which I did not think was possible.

  • Sam

    Big Night of MSNBC !

    I wish Sharpton wasn’t in the lineup , Mathews could have got +400K and Ed +500K . But these are really good numbers .

  • Sam

    Why did the righties chose Mitt Romney ??

    You guys blew up your chances by choosing this two faced Harvey Dent, what was so wrong with Huntsman ?

  • Tony

    It wont take long until both O’Donnell and Maddow win in total viewers too.

  • Hello

    Wow MSNBC numbers were insane, even Burnett scored high numbers at 11.

  • Jeff

    Way 2 go msnbc!

    Mitt’s gaffe and the right wing spin is costing Fox News their viewers.

    Rachel Maddow & Lawrence ODonnell doing very well

    I think Pawlenty would have worked as well. I think Huntsman had 2 problems:

    1. he committed the cardinal sin of working for Obama
    2. he is considered “to moderate” and wouldn’t pander like Romney to the far right

  • Jeff

    @ Sam

    The real Mitt Romney did stand up the other day at a $50k a plate event and spilled his guts about how he feels about 47% of Americans as “victims” because they are poor struggling or in debt and have to depend on the govt.

  • Sam

    @ Mark,

    “I think Pawlenty would have worked as well”

    Even Pawlenty would have done a lot better than Two-face

    ” I think Huntsman had 2 problems:
    1. he committed the cardinal sin of working for Obama
    2. he is considered “to moderate” and wouldn’t pander like Romney to the far right”

    That’s just the proof that the righties are so closed minded , they dismissed Huntsman just because he worked for Obama. Actually , that’s an advantage for Huntsman because he’s been an insider of the Obama administration plus he could always play the ” unity ” card because most of the country is against the partisanship that we are seeing today anyway.

    Unfortunately, the far right is destroying the republican party by pushing it WAYYYY to the right, so now it’s known to sane people as ” The Wackado Party”

  • Laurence Glavin

    Instead of being “two-faced”, I think Mitt Romney is more like the cartoon-character Clutch Cargo with an Easter-Island immobile oversized head and an independently-moving mouth.

  • Sam

    @ Jeff,

    “The real Mitt Romney did stand up the other day at a $50k a plate event and spilled his guts about how he feels about 47% of Americans as “victims” because they are poor struggling or in debt and have to depend on the govt”

    Yeah finally he stood up but I still believe that there is even more disgusting face to Mitt Romney and what he thinks about working people who are not good enough to be in his ruling class golf club.

    For argument sake Fox numbers are slightly above average. On the plus side that’s a solid base that has been watching for the past year, on the negative side it doesn’t seem like the station has much appeal past that base.

    MSNBC on the other hand seems to be enjoying a bunch of fair weather liberals who could care less about politics except till 2 months before an election. Great because they are getting good ratings now, bad for MSNBC because come Nov 7 those rating will drop back till normal.

  • wowiezowie

    I hate cable news. Fox and MSNBC are why america is hated in the world.

  • James

    Big big night for msnbc ..rachel crushed hannity in the key demo big numbers for everybody..all thanks to that blundering clown mitt

  • wowiezowie

    It is sad that americans get their questions ignored by the canidates and fillabustered because the top 2 cable news outfits think seeing who can be the crazier uncle is better for ratings. Americans are 50% to blame to because we enable these A$$holes to avoid anything to do with policy and actual news because we would rather see old people scream and yell

    I do think Huntsman would be a tough challenge in the sense he would be very appealing to those in the middle(independents). All that being said a year ago this time I though Romney would be the hardest of the bunch to go up against because I thought he would be more moderate and win over a few independents(plus the fact he could out campaign Huntsman). I do think his trying to pander to the far right was a bad choice. I understand pandering tot he base, but you can only go so far doing it before you turn off the people in the middle.
