    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm lets see, loser, loser, loser, loser, loser, loser, loser, and loser.
    Perfect score by MSNBC!!! LOSER! :lol:

  • Mark2

    HLN, CNN’s sister network, is on FIRE!!!

    HLN + CNN are actually destroying Fox News in the key demo.

    Turner Broadcasting System must be very pleased right now.

  • bad

    HLN milking Jodi Arias.
    Disgusting

  • Ratboy

    Apples – Red
    Oranges – Orange

    Now to get numbers to beat FOX the loon is combining stations!!

    Cant Fix Stupid!

  • Brian

    Why are people so interested in Jodi Arias? I don’t even find whole case interesting at all.

  • TZCA

    Using TROLL logic, MSNBC has consistently beat Fox again!

  • TZCA

    Brian, probably to see if she’ll get away with her crime in the face of overwhelming evidence like Casey Anthony did. That’s only my humble opinion.

  • Eddie

    I’m from Canada and I just get a kick out of the msnbc, fox and cnn/hnn people find any little edge and then just hammer the other side. Hilarious!

  • Brian

    I suppose but the sentencing will take like 5 minutes, why watch all the boring stuff. I do agree with you though.

  • Mike W

    Rachel Maddow destroyed Hannity 513 to 133 in the 25-54 demo if you invert the numbers.

    That’s my contribution to the most outlandish comparison.

  • TZCA

    Brian, I don’t watch it. I will wait for the verdict. But I suppose for some, if they watch the case and are privy to facts provided in the case, then maybe they will be able to rationalize in their minds why the jury voted this way or that.

  • TZCA

    Eddie,

    You should see it when my buds and I get together have farting contests. Talk about hammering the other side!

  • TZCA

    j/k

  • Stan T.

    *********************************

    Eddie, is it true that MSNBC is banned in Canada for their hate speech?

  • TZCA

    After some deep pondering, I have come to the realization that Mike W has uncovered the hidden key to understanding the logic of the TROLL. The problem is that the chest was found empty leaving us little more to work with.

  • Stan T.

    How come it seems like the Rachel Maddow show does better in the ratings when she’s not there? lol

  • TZCA

    Stan T,

    Ms. Maddow is well mannered and educated. But her smug demeanor became too annoying for me so I haven’t watched her in months. Therefore, I cannot comment on why her ratings are up or down. It’s better for all of us this way :smile:

  • Stan T.

    Now I know how Obama got elected and re-elected…

    Last night’s cable winner: Swamp People

    Total viewers 4.46 million key demo 1.6

    If this is the best tv has to offer, no wonder they didn’t expect anything from their presidential candidate.

    **********************************

    Well, she’s not that educated…she’s suppose to be an expert on politics and had to ask her guest about a political subject, admitting she didn’t know the answer…if she’s such an expert she should have known the answer…

  • Kendall

    HLN is probably going to be strong until the Arias trial concludes. FNC won’t be affected…their audience is pretty uniform. You’ll see CNN, MSNBC and HLN split pretty evenly with HLN ahead; it’s safe to say they share a similar audience.
