    CNN beat MSNBC in total viewer on both days, in primetime and total day.
    FNC won in all demos and total viewers. I wonder what kind of ratings ‘The Five’ got on Sunday.

  • Raz

    Wow, what happened to MSNBC? Didn’t run sex and prisons?

  • Mick Hannigan

    RAZ…

    BSNBC always fails when they don’t have articles bashing conservatives. What a pitiful waste of TV airtime.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Once again, Apple Stinx, you beat me to the punch!
