  • Ralph Hahn

    FOX News is on fire!!!

  • b

    See ya in 4-years MSNBC….LOL

  • 1966

    hannity crushs rachel in the demo!!!
    hannitys on fire!!!!

  • ron300

    Right back to where it was before the election.

  • Ralph Hahn

    MSNBC tanks in the demo. OUCH! That’s gotta hurt.

  • clinging to god

    Poor Richard Maddow, destroyed by Hannity…OUCH… does that HURT…. LOL LOL

  • Joe

    As usual Ralph is a coward. He only shows up the days Fox wins. Rachel was off yesterday. When Rachel is there, she and Lawrence destroy Fox every night. But Ralph also predicted Romney would win easily and then hid after he got destroyed. Obama won and you’re clueless. Rachel did not do the show yesterday you crazy right wing nuts. Do any of you ever use facts?

  • Joe

    You realize that every night Rachel wins now, you hear nothing from these cowards. A night they think Hannity won, they all show up. Rachel wasn’t on last night lol. I know you’re not used to facts because you watch Fox News. But this is embarrassing.

  • 1966

    LOL at joe

  • joe88

    oooooooooooo fox won in all demos. what happen to the happy people from mondays ratings when rachael and odonell won in one demo. looks like a sad day for mark2 ;(

  • clinging to god

    Oh, that’s right…he’s on FIREEEEEEEEE too….

  • joe88

    i wonder when these delusional msnbc people will realize that they will never win over fox. they get lucky maybe once a month then things go back to normal.

  • clinging to god

    Poor Joe, he’s feeling kinda low, speaking about cowardly, where is Mark 2…

  • Laurence Glavin

    Tuesday turned out to be a very ATYPICAL night: the shooting in the suburban Portland, OR mall interrupted MSNBC and CNN sometime after 7:30 pm. Later, Ezra Klein subbed for Rachel and Alex Wagner subbed for L O’D. I don’t know if Ed Schults did a show at 8:00 pm Eastern off-the-network that was then aired at 11:00 pm or did his show at 11:00 pm Eastern. I recorded the 3:00 am rerun and watched it today.

  • Michael

    Looks like Morning Joke is back to their norm.
    What was MSNBC’s Breaking news, did Ed back
    Up a toilet a break a water main again ?

    …. But this is embarrassing.


    I’d be embarrased by such mundane ramblings as well.

  • cathy

    poor Joe, the same thing can be said for Mark2. He is only here when Rachel wins. Oh, and she can only win the demo.

  • RedBarSoup

    poor Joe, the same thing can be said for Mark2. He is only here when Rachel wins. Oh, and she can only win the demo.

    Really? Mark2 has been in here plenty of times when Rachel has lost…..which was pre-election.

    Cathy, I have yet to see the video of Obama saying that Al Qaeda has been defeated.

  • TZCA

    I’m waiting until after the New Year when people settle back down in their ‘normal’ routines to see what the numbers will be. I don’t think the numbers now say one way or the other what the sway of public opinion is. But it’s good for a laugh to see someone like Joe pop a cork trying to defend Rachel’s show and calling us Right Wing Nutjobs cowards. If Rachel’s numbers are down because she had a subbie, how does he explain when Rachel’s numbers are up when she had a subbie? Oh wait, it wouldn’t make any sense to me anyways because it requires REAL math and I only know REPUBLICAN math. :lol: The lunacy of that one cracks me up too.

  • New

    I love how these people cheer for Fox, without realizing it’s just a propaganda station for rich people. They pretty much caught Fox Representative asking Petraeus to run his Presidential campaign for him.

    You may disagree with MSNBC, but its not a propaganda station. Progressivism does not equal the rich getting more money, so its not propaganda.
