    The customary one-million-total-viewers for Lawrence O’Donnell did not materialize Friday night; LO’D was off and Ezra Klein was substitute host. Nonetheless “Last Word” beat Greta in the demo. I get the impression that “Last Word” will be a Friday night fixture (by that i mean it will be broadcast on a regular basis; not in the sense that Sean Hannity is a fixture, much like a flush toilet).

  • 1966

    hannity back on top

  • 1966

    larry you would know about toilets

  • Ratboy

    Oh My God!!! Rachel got beat!!! Does that mean the MESSDNC people are going to explode????? :shock:

  • Ben

    OMG msdnc beat fox in one category in one time slot with Lawrence O… Guys this means fox is done, or something like that.

  • Robbie

    Oh My God!!! Rachel got beat!!! Does that mean the MESSDNC people are going to explode?????

    No, it just means that Hannity is on FIRE!!!! HAHA

  • Snap Tie

    I’m a new Democrat, where do I sign up for my free stuff?

  • BevAG

    And the Conservatives STILL aren’t back to watching politics as usual. Wait until that happens. The Whitehouse MSNBC watchers will start to realize that the country really isn’t buying this whole, “Let’s not tell the folks what the Obama administration is REALLY doing. Let’s just do a lot of Whitehouse/Obama propaganda and hide the true stuff that is happening,” which is what MSNBC does every day.

    I’m figuring that majority of MSNBC watchers don’t even know that our Ambassador that was killed in Benghazi was sodomized first before he was killed. Islamists sodomize their victims first to humiliate them, which is what happened to our Ambassador. Yet MSNBC has just poo-pooed that whole ordeal and their listeners don’t know and/or don’t care to know the truth. What a shame.

  • mattfitz

    Oh Boo f en Hoo! lmao.People have lives and friday ratings dont mean crap. People with a life go out Friday nights.Slant head is gonna win some Nights nights and So will Rachel.The pattern has been set with regularity the past few months!Lets see if next week is different and BTW I was previously right when all you bubble dwellers were gloating Thanksgiving week.No matter what they are running close in the demo every night now .Larry O is gonna chase Greta out as he has won with regularity the better part of the year.

  • mattfitz

    Oh and Ben learn to count they won two hours The recast was won by Ed over BillO. and this seems like its getting to be regular now .point is MSNBC has grown there viewership.Meanwhile fox has seen some modest declines.These are facts.FOX will remain number one for a while more but they now have some legitimate competition in primetime,so get over it,theres room for both channels lol,they are polital entertainment stations and should not try to claim otherwise but they serve as outlets for the divergent views.Besides you guys are way worse when you are losing so we need to throw the mad dog some bones to keep from getting bit lol,

  • mattfitz

    Bev AG you get they crazy crap from some right wing blog? Thats outragous and you should be ashamed spitting out those lies! I can laugh off your Obama derangement to a point but Im calling you out as an ignorant dangerous pig,when you denegrate public servants who gave their lives in our servic!Even if that was true (which its not)how dare you disrespect the living family members that are still here!You have no legitamite reason to post that other than you are a vile hateful fear monger who has no respect for the living or dead!

  • BevAG

    Well, matt, thank you for sharing….whatever THAT was. You need to get informed.

  • BevAG

    Matt, I’m trying to understand where I “denegrated a public servant.” Ambassador Stevens was sodomized by Islamists before they killed him. That is typically what Islamists do.

    Islamists are against homosexuality, two men together. But they believe in doing that if you’re doing it to inflict pain, humiliation. The Islamists wanted to humiliate the United States, Ambassador Stevens, and that’s what they did.

    Matt, I think you need a reading comprehension course and you VERY SERIOUSLY need a course in civility.

  • RedBarSoup

    So MSNBC wins one Friday night, people in here say it’s because “fox News watchers have lives and spent it with their loved ones”. When Fox News wins Friday it’s because…….anyone?

  • 1966

    @red bar soup
    because they cheated?

  • Mark2

    Wow, The Ed Show beat O’Reilly again at 11PM.

    I think it’s time for Greta to go, she’s getting crushed on a consistent basis.

    Key Demo numbers for Fox News are down from last year and key demo numbers are UP for MSNBC from last year.

  • Diamond Dave

    O’Reilly was a BEST OF CLIP SHOW on Friday. If Ed Show didn’t beat him I would have been shocked.

  • Diamond Dave

    Edfitz—The Ed Show beating O’Reilly a “regular thing”? I think you need to feed your unicorn before Bigfoot gets home from the night shift at Area 51.
