    @Ralph Hahn

    Jayson was using numbers from Monday night. The only thing he is pointing out is that FOX News skews older. He took the 25-54 primetime audience and divided it into the total audience. He is merely pointing out that only 20% of the total audience is between 25-54. Likewise, HLN skews the youngest with 40% of HLN’s audience in that demo. CNN and MSNBC is at 30%.

    Please don’t go off on people unless you understand the post. It makes you seem foolish.

  • moncon

    I can see why MSNBC’s ratings are going back down. Turned on Sharpton and his big lead in is about Romney. Did anyone tell this clown the election is over and his guy won?

  • moncon

    I called Sharpton a clown, is that racist? I know the racist terminology list is long just making sure.

    What do you have against clowns??? :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • clinging to their guns

    MSNBC eating Fox’s dust again, love it…Man that’s gotta hurt OUCH !!!!

  • ninja

    Moncon……………Yes that is racist, unless it’s used against a conservative women. Get with the program. However hard it is to keep up.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Well…at least your guy won the election.

    Ouch! Man is that going to leave a mark, Mark 2.

    Joke of the day:

    Waiting for the Chicago Cubs to win the World Series is like leaving a night light on for Jimmy Hoffa.

  • ninja

    Are we home yet? Lol

  • 1966

    did you change your name?

  • Mark2

    O’Reilly is still clinging to his ‘Gifts’ comments. He’s starting to sound like Limbaugh.

    He just can’t accept the fact that people just don’t like the Republican Party anymore. They have lost the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 Presidential elections.

  • Sicilian Papa


    Mark 2

    The good news is people now have a chance to see liberalism fail in a colossal way.

    Clinton made deals with the Repubs. Oh yeah the Repubs. owned the Congress from 94-06.

    President Government knows best, will not yield his failed Lib. policies. I could list his failures but why bother everyone has seen them.

    It’s good thing your side owns the corrupt media or your side would never win an election!

  • Mark2

    I’m just gladd seeing that the Republican Party is finally moving back towards the Center as opposed to the crazy right.

  • Babygate

    MSNBC’s coverage of the Benghazi attack has been exceptional. They are committed to getting to the truth so and deliver on that transparency we were promised. Thank you MSNBC, for caring more about the people than the corrupocrats in DC. Thank you for shedding the light on the tragic deaths of four patriots and exposing those who shamelessly lied about it. Thank you Rachel, Chris and Co.for your commitment to journalistic integrity in the face of relentless criticism and opposition. Wait, that wasn’t you guys???

  • Bretta

    @elle .. I like Chris and Ed though but why does Chris Matthews have two time slots? They should give it to Chris Hayes or Melissa Harris Perry.. I think 2 time slots of Chris is slowing it down…

  • ninja

    @ Mark2 what you conceder the center in California is different than say Texas.

  • Jayson


    Relax, man! It’s not that serious. It WAS a random stat. It was meant to show the tastes of people in the 25-54 demo on one night. But, I’ve come to notice that it’s pretty close to those percentages night-after-night.

    Why on earth did you react like that? Why do you care so much? What do the stats I posted mean to you for you to get so upset?

    Furthermore, I’m an independent/moderate who does not understand partisans like you!

    PS: more random stats to come.

  • Sam

    Hannity with 1,840 is lower than almost every other Fox program.

    The fraud used cars salesman is dropping like a rock even the righties don’t trust him anymore !

  • Mark2

    LMAO, Charles Krauthammer just shot down O’Reilly’s theory about the low income bracket voting for Obama because of ‘Gifts”.

    Thank you Charles for setting that fool straight.

  • Jayson


    The reason I posted those stats was to comment on the fact that HLN gets 40% of it’s audience in the demo. I guess that’s why they stay on the air with such low ratings night after night.

    It’s a known fact that FNC, CNN, and MSNBC attract older audiences. (At least, it’s become well-known to me). I think you’ve totally missed the boat on my post.

  • Bobbyv

    Did not shoot it down Mark2, just said it may be true but is not as Bill O said
