    Wow, the ‘baggers are still too depressed to turn on Fox News and come to grips with reality. Sad.

  • Keynes

    TRMS was #1 in the demo for the whole evening. O.O

  • Mark2

    Rachel crushes Hannity and O’Reilly in the key Demo.

    Lawrence beats Greta again in the key Demo.

    MSNBC wins the Primetime Demo again.

    It’s not looking good for Fox News. I thought by now Fox News Primetime shows would’ve pulled away from MSNBC. Instead, MSNBC is pulling ahead.

  • Khan

    CNN back to its miserable ratings :(

  • Laurence Glavin

    Rachel beats out Cement-head in “the demo” and gets a tie in 35-64. There must be a high number of 65-and-over viewers who keep Cement-head’s total higher than Rachel’s. Maybe they can’t work the remote.

  • DPM

    MSNBC is the new #1……it really is that simple….the majority of America agrees with and support the side MSNBC stands on and all that they say…..it is a new America…and MSNBC is leading the charge….these numbers will never go away now !!!!!…peace

  • Rod D

    @ Khan

    It seems to me as though CNN’s ratings are quite a lot better than they were earlier this year. Particularly those for Erin Burnett’s show.

  • Lance

    It looks like the credibility of FNC has started to hurt them in the ratings at last. After being lied to non-stop during the last campaign season, maybe some of their viewers have finally figured out it’s not really news and just a bunch of Roger Ailes/Rupert Murdock approved PR.

  • dave

    People are getting to know FOX is just a lying machine for the right.
    John Mccain should resign.Looks like he never got over getting his a-s kicked in 2008.He is a coward of the highest order.
    Picked a stupid freak for his V.P.
    While captured he signed every confussion put in frount of him.He denounched the Unitrd States.

  • MattFitz

    HA HA Fox is losing it! They are gonna run out of excuses soon! BTW I dont really wish you morons dead,you make me laugh to much! but your factless arguments of doom and gloom just makes me lose it sometimes.I apologize for going over the top however the points I was making I stand by 100percent I do hate liars and hypocrites I dont wish anyone dead just over the top hyperbole I will refrain in the future from sch rants,But I am enjoying seeing the bullies get called out as the whiners cowards and liars they have been!

  • dave

    Old man Rupert will soon be hiring liberals to improve his ratings.Watch out, funny face, Greta.

  • MattFitz

    Damn MSNBC is getting great ratings(Has BEEN)Rachel is a real star! I think she may get the network Anchor some day soon if she wanted it!I for one am delighted,One of the most insightful,well researched journalists of her(Or Any)time.She is also very funny.Im so happy ethics and truth are finally drowning out the Fox Noise!

  • Ralph Hahn

    >>> Rachel crushes Hannity and O’Reilly in the key Demo <<>> MSNBC wins the Primetime Demo again. <<<

    NO. MSNBC won 9-11pm. That's all. The evenings are individual programs, not a three-hour block of one singular program.

    There have been changes on "Hannity" that have improved the show and Sean himself. Greta can easily adapt to changes. Just, no more Trump. And, no more recorded streaming of Rush.

    Oy, vey. And, I'm not even Jewish. Dynomite couldn't open that idiot's mind.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @DPM: >>> MSNBC is the new #1…… <<<. Quoting comedian Lewis Black: "DPM, where could one find such a drug that would make one so delusional???"

    MSNBC seems to be leading in the 25/54 demo during the 9PM and 10PM hours ONLY. Hannity & Greta still have more total viewers.

    In the demo, Fox crushes MSNBC in the demo in all but two porgrams. Maybe Comcast will shut down "MSNBC ON FIRE" except during the hours between 9-11pm. :-) :-) :-)

  • Mark2


    Nice spin but that’s not going to cut it.

    MSNBC won the Primetime key Demo (416 to 399).

  • TZCA


    Dangit, I still got ‘kiss you all over’ playing reruns in my head!

  • Mark2

    Oh yeah, as far as the Top Cable shows for Wednesday only only Jon Stewart, Colbert, and Rachel made the list. O’Reilly and Hannity failed to make the list.

    Ouch!!! That’s gotta hurt!

  • 1966

    you should know bettet than to say anything bad about msnbc lol

  • TZCA

    Not as bad as ‘gangnam style’ though.

    Or anytime I see this:

  • Diamond Dave

    This is still post-election depression. It will return to normal soon.
