    Whoa…huge day for MSNBC!!!

  • Former CNN Fan

    Wow! Look at the numbers for Early Start/Starting Point! They needed that desperately. Dayside CNN was good but amazing how the ratings fell apart through primetime. The decent from Election Nights highs has begun.

  • Former CNN Fan

    Big day for MSNBC!! Beating Fox in demo?!?! Wow.

  • AppleStinx

    Not that FNC performed badly, but phenomenal ratings for MSNBC. Is it a post-election bounce or are they here to stay competitively?

  • Sicilian Papa

    People tuned in for the party! MSNBC will go back normal ratings soon. They basking in the glow of victory!

  • AppleStinx

    War on women! Anderson and Lawrence beat Greta, but will Greta have the last word?

    By glancing at the numbers it looks like a lot of extra people tuen in as opposed to leaving FOX. I would guess it will fall back to normal realativly quick.

  • Grets

    Wow. MSNBC beat FOX News in the 25-54 demo every hour except at 8 p.m. MSNBC even beat FOX News in the total day 25-54 demo. I can not remember another day that has happened.

    I am guessing within a couple weeks all stations will be back to normal ratings

    Fox
    Bill O ~3M
    Hannity and Greta > 2M

    MSNBC
    Ed, Rachel and Larry ~1M

    CNN > 750k

    RACHEL IS ON FIRE!!!!!!!!!

    MSNBC is on Fire!!!

    CNN is on Fire!!!

    And somebody threw water on Hannity.

    Could Fox be losing their credibility because of their election predicions?

  • Ratboy

    @ Could Fox be losing their credibility because of their election predicions?

    No

  • Mark2

    -CNN wins daytime Demo (25-54)

    -MSNBC wins both Primetime Demos

    -Most importantly, Rachel Maddow beats O’Reilly and Hannity in both Demos.

  • Dave

    Why would anyone with a brain watch FOX?They are not a news network.They are a comedy show.They and the GOP are finished.

  • Mark2

    Rachel Maddow had the best ever breakdown about the election results that I have ever seen. If some of you Conservatives can stomach watching her, the way we stomach watching O’Reilly and Hannity, it’s really worth watching:

  • Sam

    Nice for Maddow, Sorry I didn’t watch yesterday I couldn’t resist watching Hannity whine like a bitch.

  • Mark2

    ^That’s her opening from last night’s high rated show.

  • Sam

    @ Mark2 ,

    Thanks for posting the clip.

    My favorite part is from 12:52, there is a lot of wisdom in what she says.

  • Raz

    Congrats to MSNBC, I do not like them but they did well, so credit where credit is due. Can they keep up the numbers? That has yet to be seen.

  • Letmethink

    Mark, here I go being nosey again. But you work nights and post all day. How do you do it? You don’t have to answer–I know I am being nosey—- but seriously how in the heck do you do it???

  • Mark2

    Hey Sam, watch that video I posted…it’s a classic breakdown of what happened.
