    DO’H!! Chris Hayes couldn’t beat Eddies numbers on his first night and a first timer got 2.2 million sitting in for Bill O!!

    OOOOOOOOOOOOUCH!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Doug

    Wow, only 10k behind BOR for Chris Hayes in the demo…not too shabby.

  • Doug Z

    How many time does one have to tell the uneducated to educate them
    Grasshopper, I will not post it all . But, you post one just like this last mouth. . Use your brain. Write on your own.

    Right wing priorities: Rat–did I miss anything?

    To keep Obama and Dems from spending all the childrens money.

  • Ratboy

    @ Doug

    Wow, only 10k behind BOR for Chris Hayes in the demo…not too shabby

    Scott Brown was guest host on OReilly and had NEVER done anything like it before so yes it is pretty shabby!

  • Doug Z

    Grasshopper for your uneducated mind. the Obama has made that impossible. There is not the amount of gold in the world to pay back what Obama and the Dems owe.It is way to late. enjoy your life when you grow up and owe.

    Posted April 2, 2013 at 1:35 PM

    For laughs–how many of you right wingers want the gold standard back???? And , if so, why???

  • Doug Z

    Grasshopper, Chicago, Obama has it already. How many died last night .Dems are trying to kill off the blacks there.

    Posted April 2, 2013 at 1:28 PM

    NRA–let’s have a rifle range on every baksketball court……in schools….any other stupid ideas from the extremist pierre…

  • Sj

    Rachel beat Hannity in the Demos this time. What’s up with that?

  • Doug Z

    Rat. Scott Brown is not made for Tv . He had better keep his day job.

  • Mark

    Pretty good start for Hayes and looks like the lead in helped Maddow(who for the past 2 weeks had lower then normal ratings). I am not sure how Hayes show will do, I like the format but I am not sure if it will work in Evenings(it’s more what I expect out of Sunday News shows on the letter networks)

  • Ratboy

    More unbiased TV!!! :shock:

    This Former DNC Spokesperson Just Got Her Own MSNBC Weekend Show

    Ed Schultz‘s show weekend show on MSNBC may not have a launch date yet, but now it has a lead-in. The cable network announced today that former Democratic National Committee spokesperson and frequent MSNBC guest host Karen Finney will host a new show to air weekends from 4-5pm ET

  • Sj

    I miss Ed…Hayes is okay.

  • Doug Z


    Chris Matthew beat somebody, I just do not have time to work that hard on research. I am sure a Demo, Lib will for me.

  • Doug Z

    control yourself. But enjoy it why you can.

    Rachel beat Hannity in the Demos this time. What’s up with that?

  • AppleStinx

    You never see this happen: Greta was the top performer in primetime A25-54 demo for FNC, and Scott Brown got ‘The Factor’ to do better at 11pm than at 8pm.

    CNN’s new 10pm program, rude debut: 278K/80K.

    Chris Hayes sizzled at 8pm, fizzled at 11pm.

  • Doug Z

    control yourself. But enjoy it why you can.

    Wow, only 10k behind BOR for Chris Hayes in the demo…not too shabby.

  • AppleStinx

    ‘Get to the Point’ got ‘Starting Point’-like ratings.

  • Sj

    @Doug Z. lol. Just wondered why. Been doing it a little more than usual lately. I used to watch Hannity. He get’s a little too nasty sometimes for me. I watch Rachel mostly now.

  • Doug Z


    Hanity says the same thing every night. It might be true , but old news. I watch I love Lucy now.

  • Sj

    @ Doug Z. I like I love Lucy. Seen em all so many times though. I just flip through everything and watch what jumps out as interesting to me.

  • Kendall


    I agree. For MSNBC to enlist a former DNC Communications Director to host one of their news shows is pretty blatantly biased.

    However, FNC has an awful lot of ex-GOP figures on their payroll. So, I suppose it evens-out in the end. Fairness and objectivity has been dead for a while now.
