    Top Morning News shows:

    #1 – ABC GMA – 5,847,000

    #2 – NBC Today – 4,962,000

    #3 – CBS Morning – 2,963,000

    #4 – Fox & Friends – 1,067,000

    Domination!!!

  • Mark2

    ^That’s for you Ralph

  • moncon

    Ouch! They need to revamp the whole MSNBC platform. People do not want to hear a channel devoted solely to insulting those of a differing viewpoint other than a liberal/democrat. That and maybe they should throw in some actual news reporting and less opinion reporting. They are vulgar, rude and disrespectful on that channel.

  • moncon

    Where is Morning Joe in the top morning shows?

  • Mark2

    ^Joe who?

    Oh, you mean that Conservative.

  • joe88

    is msnbc losing to cnn………. haha what the hell is going on. lol

  • Raz

    There is an article on the Huffy about how CNN and MSNBC are picking white guys for their new news spots. They dosn’t seem as deverse as other news stations…like Fox

  • moncon

    If you say so. But where are they on the list?

  • Todd

    Ed is out and rumor has it LOD is going out the door also. I think MHP was pissed not to get the Ed timeslot so she will go into LOD’s. No way MSNBC can pick a white guy (Chris Hayes) over a black women for the new primetime slot. she will get her show primetime mark my words.

  • Raz

    Lawrence O’Donnell beat Greta again.

    Only in one demo
    and both of them took it on the chin for HLN After Dark, which is rather a cool show. They are reinacting the murder.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Mark2: NO. After you finally got it, you goofed-up again. You can’t compare the CBS, NBC and ABC morning shows to Fox & Friends. Compare Fox & Friends to Morning Joe and other CABLE morning shows.

  • AppleStinx

    ‘Fox & Friends’ beat the combined averages of CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and HLN with room left for FBN and Current TV.

  • beached

    If I want a good laugh after work, I tune in to Fox Comedy News for a while. Forget network shows, or cable, there isn’t anything funnier than HaNutty.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Some of you folks don’t believe me or don’t like my longer posts. However you can ALWAYS trust AppleStinx for the facts and usually in one line.

  • Mark2

    Mar 21, 2011 vs Mar 21, 2013 comparison (25-54 Demo)

    Hannity: 743K vs 304K = -59% decrease

    Maddow: 315K vs 240K = -24% decrease

    Gap: Then = 428K; Now = 64K

  • Mark2

    @Ralph

    In case you didn’t know, those people who tune in to watch Broadcast News are potential voters.

  • usa8888

    Billo continues with 2/3 of his audience over 65. Greta is beaten in the demo. And the right wing kooks are arguing with the GOP moderates. In 4 years, the right wing GOP will be DEAD and the GOP will look much different….

  • Mark2

    Total Morning News Viewers:

    Broadcast (NBC, CBS, ABC) = 13.7 Million

    Cable (Fox, CNN, MSNBC, HLN, CNBC) = 2.1 million

    Now, that’s a lot of potential voters.

  • mary

    There is nothing wrong with us older baby boomers watching Fox. We have more money to buy the items in the adds and we vote. Fox is honest and does not manipulate facts like MSDNC

  • mary

    Hardball in 3rd place in both time slots time for Matthews to retire
