    Everybodys numbers were down! I know Ingrahm was in for OReilly. there may have been a different show on in the Hannity slot too. I was watching Gold Rush so I dont know for sure.

  • Ralph Hahn

    MESS/NBC usually gets bigger numbers on Friday nights. They can’t win a single weeknight, Mon-Fri. >>> OUCH <<< That's GOTTA hurt!!!!

  • Joe

    Hannity was a repeat

  • Alex

    Hannity wasn’t a repeat, Eric Bolling was filling in for him.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Where is the bottom for MSNBC?

  • Sicilian Papa

    Larry O. 515K TOTAL!


  • Sicilian Papa

    Mr. Ed show 169k in key demo


    Really, who wants to watch a talking horse anyway!

  • Sicilian Papa

    By next month the Mostly Sycophantic National Barrack Channel will be under 100k in the key demos.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Lucile “Christal” Ball says on MSNBC that Republicans blocking massive government spending is why the economy contracted last month.

    Game, set, match lefties.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I am an imbecile, a liar, a nut, uneducated but behold the great wizard Papa is right. This is an economy built on government deficit spending.

    Print some more money Barrack! You have to make it look like we are growing!

  • Sicilian Papa

    This crash will be like no other in our history.

    Why you ask? Glad you did, because we have never a had a far leftist leader like Obama in our entire history.

    The radical left and the corrupt, left wing, secular, so-called objective media have taken over the nation and consequences are devastating.

    Please, America, wake up and smell the coffee. We have been sold a bill of goods by the State run media.

  • Sicilian Papa

    1960’s leftist radicals dreamed of this day. When one of their own would be in control of the White House.

    Look for the corrupt, left wing, secular, so-called objective media to turn really ugly as things fall apart around them. They will claim all is well on the Titanic as they point to conservatives as the iceberg.

  • Sicilian Papa

    If Barrack Obama where my neighbor I would like him.

    A nice college professor who serves on the town council. We would talk about sports and the events of the day. See, in this scenario Barrack Obama could do little or no harm to the nation.

    The corrupt media made a President out of him! Now we all have to pay the price!

  • mary

    Fox numbers are great! MSDNC is loosing more viewers every day.

  • Doug Z

    Polls show Argentinians worry most about inflation, which private economists estimate could reach 30 percent this year. The government says it’s trying to hold the next union wage hikes to 20 percent, a figure that suggests how little anyone believes the official index that pegs annual inflation at just 10 percent.

    The government announced the price freeze on the first business day after the International Monetary Fund formally censured Argentina for putting out inaccurate economic data. The IMF has given Argentina until September to bring its statistics up to international standards, or face expulsion from the world body in November.

  • Doug Z

    Gee… spend in deficit and then run out of money, then the value of your currency falls and inflation MUST come next. Oddly enough this is exactly what Obama teal are doing. We’re going to be looking at double digit inflation very, very soon.

  • Ratboy

    Gee where is Mark2 and a$$00000 and the rest of the loons to comment about Hannity beating Dr Maddow with a prime time rerun and only losing the key demo by 20k?? Oh wait Mark2 is probobly busy adding up all the comedy shows so he can post another intelectual masterpiece!! :lol:

  • Doug Z

    Rat you are bad, but factual

  • Cathy

    I’m seeing a pattern here. More 25-34 year old watch Fox news Mon-Thurs then on the weekend. I be thinking a lot be tuning out for the weekend.
    I’m going to go look and see if it’s the same for all news channels.

  • Letmethink

    Early Start/Starting Point up a bit. Has Cuomo taken over for Solidad OBrien yet?
