    Early Start/Starting Point doubled their numbers. Almost as many viewers as Morning Joe.

  • Mike

    It’s interesting that O’Reilly’s 11 p.m. scores are higher than Ed’s 8 p.m. scores and Hannity’s are above Maddow’s across the board. This is where they will settle in for the long term. Notwithstanding that, the Republican Party really needs to develop a better identity for itself, i.e., focus on business environment and foreign policy/national defense. Social issues need to be handled at the state level and, frankly, such an approach is more consistent with Republican, Conservative, and Libertarian ideals – less government involvement in our daily lives. And, they need to do a better job of marketing them. In my own personal experiences, I also agreed with the ideals of the Democrat Party in my youth and as I grew older I realized how good intentions by the government ultimately lead to secondary and negative consequences.

  • AppleStinx

    I’m still scratching my head: what would be the reason for CNN to cancel the 10pm edition (traditionally the better performer) of AC360 in favor of the 8pm one.

  • Mike

    It’s funny but 13 years ago, Matthews was tolerable as a commentator. Unfortunately, he has become a shrill for the Left and it’s a particularly credible commentator for the Left. His scores last night really reflect that – if you combine his total number of viewers for this two shows, they still come in lower than either of the Fox shows he’s competing against. And, still the Democrats win. It tells you what kind of ‘messaging’ overhaul challenge that is facing the Republican Party.

  • Mike

    Sorry, I meant to say “he’s not a particularly credible commentator. . .”

  • ed brown

    Inrerracial marriage is the solution to America’s problem. White America prepare for a massive Browning.

  • Robbie

    My opinion on Fox’s problems in the ratings is consistency, not a shrinking audience. If you look at the election ratings Fox killed everyone in every category, then they just stopped watching, especially the 25-54 demo. I think because of a disenchantment with the situation at hand.

  • betty

    State of The Unions……
    President Bush really knew how to “work a room”
    Obama….Naaaaaaah, not even close.

    *********************************************
    What problem with ratings? They were getting 2-3 times the viewers before, and they are getting 2-3 times the viewers now…How about mentioning that MSNBC was well over double the viewers on election night, and now they’ve fallen to near record lows…how do you explain that Fox beats MSNBC in almost EVERY category…including the 25-54 demo?

  • Stan T.

    why is the leftist media focusing on Marco Rubio taking a sip of water?…excuse me, I had to take a sip of water…because they knew they couldn’t dispute anything he said, so just mention the sip of water…I guess only republicans drink water? I mean, why else make such a big deal out of it?

  • Cathy

    Well, Megyn Kelly is doing her part to bring new viewers to Fox news. She is expecting her third baby this summer.

    State of the Union Ratings FLOP!!

    President Obama’s Tuesday State of the Union address had the fewest viewers of any since 2000 and failed to boost his approval rating.
    According to data released by Nielsen on Thursday, nearly 33.5 million viewers tuned in to 16 different television networks for the address.

    That’s the lowest since former President Bill Clinton’s final State of the Union pulled about 31.5 million in 2000. That address was only broadcast on seven channels.

    The speech also did not give the president a bump in his approval rating, according to Gallup’s three-day rolling average.

    Poor Obama…he’s so low..not even his own UNINFORMED VOTERS are listening to him anymore

    The article was at The Hill

  • Chriscee

    are NOT listening to him anymore

    geesh I hate typos.

  • Chriscee

    @ Cathy

    Of all the women broadcasters…I admire Megan the most. She seems very down to earth. Congrats to Megan and her family!!!!

  • Laurence Glavin

    I don’t know if Mediate.com gets the same info as Tvbythenumbers, or comes here to read them and posts them shortly thereafter, but VOILA!, there they are for Wednesday night within minutes of their appearance hre.

  • Rod D

    Greta comes in 3rd in the key demo. Nice job! :-)

  • Chriscee

    @ Rod D

    It doesn’t matter…she still took over all viewship in her time slot….and FNC ruled the night…

    Poor Chrissy Matthews, the UNreverend Sharpton and Big Fat Eddy…they are tumbling like Jack and Jill down that hill.

  • Cathy

    Stan T., Sad isn’t it. Fox’s FIVE was almost as bad, saying he could have waited the eight minutes.

    “I don’t know if Mediate.com gets the same info as Tvbythenumbers, or comes here to read them and posts them shortly thereafter, but VOILA!, there they are for Wednesday night within minutes of their appearance hre.”

    They almost certainly get them from the same folks as we do, but we endeavor to be faster. ;)

  • Mike

    Ed – “White America prepare for a massive Browning” – what’s your point? America has always been the ‘big melting pot’ and our diversity will allow us to remain the greatest country on Earth. We have a racially mixed President – I didn’t vote for him, I despise his policies and his politics but we all can be proud of the fact that race did not hold him back from becoming President. And this will serve to inspire future leaders. This notion that ‘White America’ is afraid of mixing of the races just doesn’t hold water.
