    Since a show about zombies seems to be one of the most popular programs on broadcast or cable TV lately, is it possible that they tried to gin up the ratings for the SOTU by seating Ruth Bader Ginsburg right in front of the President?

  • JSunkist

    The O’Reilly Factor isn’t a CNN show as it’s listed for 8pm in the demos

  • Ratboy

    Holy Crap!!!! MSNBC lost across the board in all catagories!!!!!!

    now THATS GOTTA HURT aaaaaaand leave a mark!!!!(2) :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Brian

    What I see here is CNN blowin em out of the water, FNC doing “ok” which is expected since people who normally watch fox probably didn’t turn out big for the SOTU. MSNBC should take this to heart, their analysis last night was god awful. I didn’t watch the SOTU, but watched the after analysis and FNC was normal, CNN was REALLLLy good. I like that Cuomo guy.

    You would have thought that the left leaning MSNBC would have raked em in and the right leaning FOX would have lost a bunch of us who didnt wanna listen to the same ole BS and lies wouldnt ya?

    You are correct in that the MESS needs to take a strong look unless of course they are getting enough spiffs from Obama that they dont need no stinking ratings :lol: :lol:

  • Patrick W.

    I love “The Five” on Foxnews. Awesome.

    Larry, when you wrong you are dead wrong, but when you are correct you are spot on and this time you are right on the spot. Good observation

  • Brian

    @ Patrick W.

    Same here. Watch it everyday.

  • Ralph Hahn

    CNN viewers are “Rainy Day Viewers.” They tune in for the big live special report events only and dump them for something else on regular days. Last night you had the SOTU speech as well as the manhunt for the murderer in California. Smooth and Steady (FNC) wins the race. The numbers clearly show that MSNBC’s viewers likely flocked to CNN as did the typical broadcast channel audience. But, MESS was clearly the ugly girl at the dance. And, of course, the most biased.

  • usa8888

    Fox loses again in the demo to both CNN and MSNBC…and Fox again corners the market on the Lawrence Welk set…..

  • usa8888

    Did you see the interview with Luke Russert on MSNBC of the old, foul-mouthed prune Ted Nugent? Nugent made a fool out himself again after being invited to attend the speech by a right wing fringe Texas guy who was somehow elected by illitertes. Nugent’s wife asked him to apoligize….

  • Andies

    That’s the most I have seen Nancy Grace get since the Casey Anthony trial.. Everyone retty much had a good night last night. Dorner/SOTU thing was a dream..

  • b

    Despite CNN leaning on Dorner shooting coverage, FNC is tops in SOTU ratings contest ! LOL

  • MichaelChickless

    Looks like a lot of Libbies were watching cable news last night, eating into the FNC dominance.

  • Stan T.

    WOW, is it a shock to anyone that Chris Matthews treated the dornor shooter nutcase a hero? But then along with Obama, Chris Matthews was one of his heroes…

  • usa8888

    CNN and MSNBC both beat Fox in state of the union coverage in both demos….

  • Brian

    @usa8888

    obviously. We were all watching the westminster dog show. much better entertainment than SOTU.

  • betty

    I seem to remember a very small window in time, when the MsNBC guys started to finally get near 1 Million after FOX always got over 1 Million and the MsNBC guys were popping those champagne corks everywhere and now….
    they’re stuck in the mere Hundreds…so humiliating and embarassing for them….oh, well.

  • Jeff

    Silly ratturd! :lol:

    You need to learn to read and not jump in the middle of things you can’t understand. My original comment was not about where the best places to earn interest on savings or anything to do with investments. You are a douche! Learn how to read and you won’t be so confused.

  • Jeff

    @I seem to remember a very small window in time, when the MsNBC guys started to finally get near 1 Million after FOX…

    Blaa blaa blaaaaa Betty…….

    Quality of content, not quantity of viewers.

    If you compare Fox to msnbc and CNN, Fox has more viewers……msnbc is gaining.

    But!!!!

    Compare Fox to Fox, the numbers are dramatically sliding!!

    So don’t go popping your champagne bottle yet! I suggest a shovel in the future of they don’t become more credible.
