    MSNBC viewers coming down off there high from post election

  • Joe

    But look how close MSNBC is to Fox now in the ratings. They are much closer than they used to be. The network continues to grow. Very solid in the ratings. I’m sure they are very happy.

  • Ratboy

    @ Very solid in the ratings

    VERY solid ratings do not flucuate as much as MSNBC! They are in fact happy because they are nothing more than the OBAMA BROACASTING NETWORK so they just keep preaching to the same group and do not need new material therefore it is cheap to produce!

  • Sam

    WOW ! O’Reilly hands the fraud ( Hannity ) 608K viewers and he loses over 200K of them !!

    Even Greta is doing better than the fraud ! He should be on suicide watch.

    AC360 is doing a good job covering the middle east , too bad Americans don’t give a crap.

  • Loza

    Chris Matthews at 7pm is hurting the line up.. Why show a repeat at 7pm?They need to add someone else there like Chris Hayes or Melissa Harris Perry..

  • Ratboy

    MSNBC Looks To Battle Pro-Obama Reputation During Second Term

    Over at the Huffington Post, media reporter Michael Calderone reports that MSNBC President Phil Griffin seeks to combat the network’s growing reputation as not just being “progressive,” but being openly “pro-Obama.”

    Many believe the network’s “pro-Obama” reputation has, thus far, been warranted: A recent Pew study found that during the final week of the 2012 election campaign, MSNBC ran zero negative stories about President Obama; and not a single positive story about Republican challenger Mitt Romney

  • 1966

    another win for hannity!!!!

  • betty

    @ sam…let not your heart be Troubled…Mr. Sean Hannity is sitting pretty
    VERY pretty! Do you know what his SALARY happens to be? If you knew you’d
    be on a suicide watch! Let not your heart be troulbled. Peace be with you

  • Edith Wilson

    MSNBC SHOULD CONTINUE IT’S PRESENT LINE-UP, IT’S WORKING FOR MANY OF US WHO WATCH THIS CHANNEL.Fox cable news is just awful, I depressed that we have so many low information viewers in this country.

  • Mike Adams

    I hope Madcow gets those “things” growing on her neck cut off.

  • betty

    And…..FOX NEWS beats ALL in the DEMO’s!
    It’s the Demo’s, STOOPID.

  • Try Harder

    msnbc back to where it always stays…………………

    When the money runs out they will come for those rich guys at msnbc to pay up their fair share.

  • Ratboy

    @ I depressed that we have so many low information viewers in this country.

    So if you watch MSNBC what can you tell us about Fast and Furious and Solyndra and Bengai just for starters cuz MSNBC didnt cover much of those stories and the reason they dint is not because they are not news it is because it could put King Obama in some bad light.

  • Robbie

    I am so tired of being called stupid, or short of intelligence because I watch FOX(EDITH WILSON). I have not said ANY derogatory comments about those who watch CNN or MSNBC, because I believe you have to be smart to spend time informing yourself of the goings on in the world, so if you do not have anything nice to say…..DON’T SAY IT AT ALL!!!!!!

  • Jeff

    Being called stupid for watching Fox News, and just plain being stupid as a result of watching Fox News is the point.


    solyndra….no finding by Issa
    Fast & furious….no findings by Issa
    Banghazi……still no findings by GOP committees.

    See what I’m talking about! Duh!

  • Jeff

    More Tea Party foolery!!

    If the red states want succession?? I say let the traitors go! But cut off their food stamps and all other welfare handouts first and watch crawl back.

  • James

    Cnn is in free fall post election ..meanwhile msnbc is still above a million veiwers for each host in primetime

  • James

    Those idiots have no idea what thier lives would be like without the federal goverment .no social security .no medicare .fema.etc..its just some symbolic gesture .thier not goin anywhere..suck it up and d or move to europeeal with our president

  • James

    Oops .typo…the idiots just need to suck it up a deal withthe way things are or leave the U.S

  • Ratboy

    Can’t fix stupid!
    Fast and furious blocked by King Obama who didn’t know nothing but invoked executive privilege to block the investigation, Solyndra cost us tax payers a boat load of money because King Obama invested in his buddies with our money and they went belly up, and Bengazi has 4 Americans dead but King Obama refuses to tell us why!! And we know it WASN’T the video!
