    WOW HLN beats MSNBC thats got to hurt Dr. Drew beat Maddow in 25-54 she on fire alright, crashing and burning

  • Ralph Hahn

    WOW! Hannity whips Rachel’s a*s in the 25-54 demo. That’s really gotta hurt because Sean’s been beating her by wide margins all this week.

  • ed brown

    FOX – UNDISPUTED CHAMPION OF THE CABLE COSMOS !!!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    I wouldn’t even put HLN into the mix. It’s covering a sensational murder trial with gavel to gavel coverage. “Love to cut you down, give us Dirty Laundry.”

  • mikey o

    @ ralph Hahn give you that on HLN, but Dr Drew on HLN beating Maddow in (25-54) That really hurts. Of course soon we will hear about Network news numbers beating cable news the apple to orange comparison

  • Ratboy

    Looks like Bill O’s blow up at Colmes on tues gave him a little boost in his ratings last night! Not to mention that MSDNC took a bath and got smoked across the board!
    But we ALL know that it dont mean jack!! You know, the network news beat everybody and Stewert and Colbert beat Hannity and Duck Dynasty had a cop and a cop car on it so it was news and beat some more FOX programs. Not to mention that it was only old people watching anyway.

    I cant wait for the loons to s’plain it to us tonight so we all are much wiser!
    Heads up I am fairly confident that we will need an Idiot Alert soon!

  • moncon

    MSDNC needs to rethink their lineup. They are all getting crushed by their nemesis FOX.
