    Poor O’Reilly, he’s starting to lose those far right-wingers to Hannity. That’s what he gets for trying to move to the center for the last couple of months, lol.

    Oh yeah, Rachel’s on fire!!!

  • don

    I wish they would have c-span numbers for the 3rd party debate

  • Hansel

    Good numbers for Maddow and O’Donnell. Could be records for them.

  • Letmethink

    Early Start/Starting Point in the 400′s. What happened–better question–can it last? Still terrible numbers but better.

    are you TRYING to prove to us all that you are an idiot???? OReily has gone from an average of 2.8 – 3 million and is now OVER 4 million and he is losing??????

    CANT FIX STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And Rachel has gained around 500k in the heat of an election and Hannity has DOUBLED and she is on fire????? With a fire like that you couldnt cook a burger!

  • Ralph Hahn

    I had predicted that before the end of this year, “O’Reilly” would have Four Million Viewers. And this is the night AFTER the debate. Madcow doesn’t even come close to “Hannity.” And despite higher numbers for Brett Baier, Shep Smith’d 25-54 demo numbers are awesome.

    For all of you MSNBC “spinsters,” I expected Rachel to have higher numbers last night. BING: “LOSING.” LOL

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ratboy: I don’t know if this is good or bad, but we posted essentially the same thing at the same exact time! :)

  • Laurence Glavin

    I watch the TV/radio simulcast of the Stephanie Miller show on Current TV, a network that isn’t covered by this site. Somebody in the sales department (I’m sure they have one) has a sense of humor. Current runs several commercials throughout the show and during other shows for candy bars, almost ALWAYS followed by a glucose meter to read blood sugar. Current is also running spots for more establishment advertisers like automobiles, the ubiquitous car insurance companies, even for the State of Connecticut to promote siting businesses there. If the wrestling madam wins, that may stop.

    Yea but you were a lot nicer than me! :wink:

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ratboy: “Idiot1″ is now saying that Bill O is losing conservatives to Hannity. Two guys on the same network…on two different time slots. Bad enough he was comparing two hosts from differing nets on at different time slotys. CAN’T FIX STUPID. BETTER TO IGNORE STUPID.

  • Sicilian Papa

    FOX is smoking! I don’t know what Mark 2 is smoking? Most of O’Reilly’s 4 Mil are hanging around for Sean and Greta.

  • Letmethink

    @FOX is smoking! I don’t know what Mark 2 is smoking? Most of O’Reilly’s 4 Mil are hanging around for Sean and Greta.

    LOL–I tune in because I am so worried about this election and can’t seem to turn the TV off at night. I just keep hoping that a News Alert will appear–OBAMA RESIGNS–

  • Ratboy

    TROP STORM WARNINGS: FLORIDA…
    Threat for mid-Atlantic, Northeast from hurricane Sandy…

  • bishop

    Quit enabling Mark2. Ignore him.

  • Letmethink

    @bishop–Quit enabling Mark2. Ignore him.–totally agree!!!

  • Ratboy

    This guy is just plain bat sh!% Crazy!!!!

    Obama Responds To Question About Slipping Lead In The Polls: Media ‘Have Some Short Memories’

    In a preview of NBC News anchor Brian Williams’ two-part interview with President Barack Obama, set to air on Rock Center tomorrow and Friday night, the president said that he was not concerned with his slipping lead in the polls against Gov. Mitt Romney. Obama said the question itself was foolish because the media had dismissed his chances of reelection more than a year ago.

  • Mordgrippe

    When the Supreme Socialist took power in Jan of 2009, he declared that he would have operatives on the web to counter the “smears” (truth)that had been spread during the election.
    Is this Mark2; Boss; and the rest?
    Will they be unemployed on January 20th?
    “I love the smell of desperation in the morning. It smells like…victory!”

  • Joe

    Awesome ratings for MSNBC. Terrific job.

  • AppleStinx

    On a day when CNN has 6 programs all getting more than 200K viewers in the demo, if you’re not getting at least 300K, you’re not doing well.

  • Sam

    The righties are attracted to ridiculous conspiracy theories and Armageddon prophecies more than common sense, that explains their attraction to that sleazy used car’s salesman Hannity.
