  • Babygate

    Fox got a nice post debate bump.

  • moncon

    Back to the norm. The collective temper tantrums on MSNBC will affect their numbers. I was embarrassed for them.

  • Babygate

    Love The Five. The chemistry among the hosts is off the chart. Happy to see how well they are doing. Can we get the numbers on The Cycle?

  • Hillbilly
  • Ratboy

    what happened to the key demo being controlled by MSNBC at 9 and 10?

  • Sicilian Papa

    Wow!!! FOX in a blowout. That was more lopsided than the debate. Geez Louise what a pounding Tingles and the rest of the MSNBC hosts took.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Tingles aka Chris Matthews we have our knives out didn’t sit to well with the public.

  • Sicilian Papa

    By the way is Tingles promoting violence with his we have our knives out comment.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Greta lances Sir Lawerence.

    Sgt. Schultz lost his helmet at eight and eleven.

    Rachel takes a pounding from Sean.

    The Five takes all the thrill out of Tingles.

    Baier reduces Sharpton to a mumbling mess.

    F & F leaves Joe with a morning low.

  • UpAndOver

    If a 30 second ad on FOX cost $10.00, on MSNBC it would cost $0.50 ..

  • d.d.

    @Hillbilly
    Did Pipa use “Pippa or Pipa”?

    Dragging this from the last room on the 7.8%

    If you follow the hiring trend, the U.S. won’t gain back all the jobs lost in the last recession for another three or more years.

    Everyone is questioning the household survey of 60,000 people. Some months the household survey shows huge gains ; other months, it posts surprising declines.

    On a monthly basis, however, the household survey is more erratic and far less reliable. Just look at the past three months.

    “In August and July, the household survey revealed a combined 314,000 decline in the number of people with jobs. Then just like that, September shows a 873,000 spike. The same thing happened earlier in the year. The household survey soared 847,000 in January and 428,000 in February. It then fell by a combined 200,000 in the next two months. “

    In other words, there is no conspiracy here, but, I can see the possibility of the unemployment rate going up next month . September tends to be a volatile month.

    One figure that stood out to me was the unemployment rate for government workers …… 4.3%.

  • James

    I guess the unemployment numbers dropping to 7,8 % is some type of conspiracy right fox sheep? Expect a big numbers for msnbc tonight

    James

    MSNBC took an epic beating from FOX

  • James

    Obamas a shue in for 4 more years

  • wowie zowey

    Everyone cares about the decline of Jobless rate. Too bad nobody leads the whole day discussing the jobless rate in ahfganastan due to dead american soldiers. Now proceed with your meaningless debate on how turned on you get over cable ratings. God Bless our troops and keep them safe(because no one else in this country cares about them. If they were towelheads or somalians we’d be breaking our backs to text money to foriegners though.) America sure has godless souls.

    James

    Look at the swing State polls at Real Clear Politics. The corrupt Lib. media will do their part but 7.8 looks a little shady.

    Those swing State polls are devastating to President Obama. They always under sample Republicans and we are still winning or tied.

  • James

    @ sicilian.unemployment dipped thats great for obama and the democrats…and very bad for lying mitt who ran as the guy who focus is creating jobs haha now whats he gonna run on

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    James

    You guys on the left talk like 7.8% is some kind of success. I guess to the left 7.8% is the new norm.

  • AppleStinx

    ‘Fox & Friends’ averaged 2,095K viewers in the 8am hour.

  • ninja

    Thanks James, I guess there is no reason to vote.
