    MSNBC, still on fire!!!

    Wow, O’Reilly is still under 3 Million.

  • Laurence Glavin

    Even putting Greta on one of the traditional Sunday morning talking-head shows failed to keep Lawrence O’Donnell from making incursions on her demo numbers.

  • Mark2

    Fox News needs to replace Greta with Megyn Kelly.

  • Tony

    O’Donnell crushes Greta!

  • tony

    No wonder this country is going down the tubes so many here cant count!

  • Ratboy

    Boy with numbers like that FOX should just put up the test pattern and go home! :twisted:

  • Laurence Glavin

    Many Americans have trouble inserting semicolons or starting new sentences. Then they top it off by misspelling “can’t”.

  • Mark2


    We just remember how high Fox News numbers used to be at and how low MSNBC numbers used to be at. Also, keep in mind that 25-54 demos are the only thing that really matters. And for MSNBC to be hanging in there with the mighty and powerful Fox News is incredible.

  • Stefwhit

    Fox is back to being top dog, but MSNBC has definitely taken a nice bite out of their audience. Greta goodbye, you ARE the weakest link.

    All in all, great news for MSNBC- the real winner after the election, so far at least.

  • Jayson

    CNN and FNC are back to their pre-election levels, respectively. MSNBC seems to have grown its audience.

  • bishop

    Megyn Kelly deserves a prime time show. She rocks.
    Klein to replace Shultz??

  • Mark

    MNSNBC overperformed for the most part(compared to normal ratings) but wow is that Morning Joe rating bad

  • Ratboy

    @ bishop

    Klein to replace Shultz??

    He concluded: “My contract is just fine and life is good.” For now.

    Ed Schultz Goes Off On NY Times Reporter For Saying MSNBC Might Replace His Show

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Mark2: >>> Fox News needs to replace Greta with Megyn Kelly <<<

    Mark down this date. It's the first time that I had agreed with you.

    Greta's show is stale. I cannot stand almost daily streaming video from Rush and if I want to see Donald Trump again, I'll watch his Apprentice show. If Rush was THAT important to Greta's show, he should appear live on Fox, not streamed from his Florida radio studio.

    Megyn's great. Somewhat suggest The Five shoudl replace Greta. What are they going to call it, The Ten? They'll need a bigger set for 10 hosts.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Mark2: On the other hand, you’re still dreaming about a collapse of Fox News. MSNBC will NEVER, EVER beat FNC. Last week was a fluke, pure and simple. And, you can’t knock Fox by comparing it to its former numbers.

    The fact is: FOX News is Number One and will stay Number One.

    I am one FNC viewer who just tuned out for a few days and watched DVD movies. I was just too tired to think about politics for one more iota. That doesn’t mean that I watched any other news station.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Viewing levels were down yesterday because of the Veterans Day holiday. Today, everything will be normal again.

  • cathy

    Fox’s numbers are down because most conservatives are still mourning the loss of our country. And those that are not mourning are to busy looking into where to invest their money to watch news shows. I would normally watch Fox Business News or Mad Money but these channels told me the election outcome wouldn’t impact the market. What a lie! The only thing doing good is gold.

    The Ratings are just showing the country’s mood. Conservatives are on a low and Libs are on a high. It will flip back to normal once the Obamacare taxes hit the middle class.

  • Mark2

    @Ralph “Mark down this date. It’s the first time that I had agreed with you.” “On the other hand, you’re still dreaming about a collapse of Fox News.”

    -Well that truce was short-lived, lol.

    -Fox News will always be up there because of their entertainment value. You have to remember that even lefties watch certain Fox shows because some like to hear what the other side has to say, some love to hate people like Hannity and O’Reilly, and some like to laugh at how comical some of the comments, theories, and conspiracies are.

    -There are several reasons Megyn Kelly would increase the viewership for that time slot. However, none bigger than her looks. I hate to be shallow but I’d rather look at Megyn spew the Fox News propaganda than Greta. Eye candy has worked out very well for Fox News, so why not continue in that tradition.

  • betty

    “O’Reilly is under 3 million” ?
    When did MsNBC ever get TWO million ?
    Can you say ‘never have, never will’ ???
    ( wishing won’t make it so. )

  • betty

    Mourning Jo….going DOWN, looks like.
