    MSNBC: THIRD PLACE FINISH IN THE 25-54 DEMO. ALL NIGHT LAST NIGHT.

  • Ratboy

    Add Sharpton, Matthews at 7, Ed’s fill in, Maddow, and ODonnel together and they beat OReilly by 300k!!!
    PACK IT IN BILL! YOU CANT BEAT EM!!! :shock: :lol:

  • Ralph Hahn

    I made a mistake in my last place. MSNBC fell to FOURTH PLACE at 11pm edt. This has got to hurt AND leave a big ugly scar.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Coming in just moments…LIES & DAMNED LIES from the Weak Links leftist phony posters here. I can just SMELL them.

  • Ralph Hahn

    HATS OFF TO LIBERAL DEMOCRAT & CO-HOST OF “THE FIVE.”

    Bob Beckel Says CBS Was Being ‘Anti-American’ by Airing ‘Amazing Race’ Episode at B-52 Memorial: ‘If They Don’t Apologize, a Pox on Their House’

  • Mark2

    HLN is still of FIRE!!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ratboy: Looks like we’re in for the everyday posts from the ‘tards. 1) Fox News does not have the numbers it used to have….2) comparisons of Fox News to CBS, NBC, ABC Evening News…Comparing Bill O’s cume ratings to Obama’s 2012 vote count, comparing Fox News to 18-49 entertainment programs on other cable outlets. My Bulls3itometer is Ready & set to go off at any time…

  • RJ

    Any new numbers for Jake Tapper’s ‘The Lead’?

  • Ralph Hahn

    LOL. >>> HLN is still on fire. <<< Yeah. They;re in the middle of covering a murder trial, you twit.

  • RJ

    And Ralph Hahn, talk about annoying. Can you not post all of that in one comment? *rolls eyes*

  • Mark2

    Bill O’Reilly slammed Michelle Bachmann last night for going after Obama on petty stuff.

    Bill O’Reilly is starting to sound like a Liberal lately.

  • Ratboy

    Ralphie Boy, you forgot that 2/3 of OReilly viewers are old and the rest of them are dead! :shock:

  • Ratboy

    Now Oreilly is starting to sound like a liberal!!!

    Cant fix Stupid!!!

    OReilly calls EVERYBODY out right, left, or in the middle!! He always has!

  • Mark2

    Wow…Fox News loses over 1.2 million viewers as soon as Hannity comes on.

    Lawrence O’Donnell beat Greta again.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @RJ: I’m sorry if my posts are too long for you to read at one time. I have to keep reminding myself that there are too many people with A.D.D.S. and their attention span is that of a flea.

  • Mark2

    Sunday News Shows:

    CBS “Face the Nation” = 3.17 Million

    NBC “Meet the Press” = 2.66 Million

    ABC “This Week” = 2.37 Million

    FOX “Fox News Sunday”= 1.20 million

  • Ralph Hahn

    >>> Lawrence O’Donnell beat Greta again. <<< Yeah. By only 3,000 people in the demo. Meanwhile, total audience, Greta had TWICE as many people watching her than O'D. I hope those 3,000 extra O'D viewers run out tonight and buy stuff from Larry's sponsors. That will SURELY make a MARK in sales. ROFLMAO!!!

  • RJ

    @Ralph,

    What are you talking about? You post length doesn’t bother me, its the fact you post a bunch of stupid ones instead of putting them in one comment.

  • Mark2

    cNBC destroys FOX Business Network again.

    CNBC = 85K

    FBN = 7K

    OUCH!!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Mark2: FINALLY! You finally have a chart comparing apples & apples. Yes, Fox News Sunday, airing on Fox Broadcasting stations, is #4 but it’s the young upstart compared to the other three. Fox Broadcasting is NOT known for news. Known more for “The Simpsons.” So, basic VHF viewers would first turn to “Meet The Press,” which is older than me and “Face The Nation” when my bay teeth started to fall out.

    NOW, you catch the drift. Oranges and oranges,
