    What more do we expect???

  • Tama

    The Point was taken off the air. Chris Hayes is hanging in there #s wise for an MSNBC program. Piers is killing CNN.

  • Tama

    *CNN’s The Point

  • 1966

    hannity destroys rachel
    hannitys on fire!!!!

  • Chriscee

    FOX NEWS is ALWAYS on fire. The rest just seem to struggle along. Wonder how long msnBS is going to stick with this FAILING line up??

  • Ratboy

    Well Week 2 for Hayes aint looking good!!!!

  • Trent

    Looks like HLN is pulling viewers away for CNN, MSNBC and (possibly) FNC. We’ll see what happens when the trail ends.

  • Ed

    I know Larry King was old and ratings might not of been the greatest, but there is no justification for Piers getting his ass handed to him on a silver platter. I’ll give props to Erin Burnett, she has climbed out of the 300 into the 500’s. If I’m CNN, I’ll keep her around.

  • Chriscee

    National Organization for Women: OBAMA IS SWINDLING WOMEN

    Can this be the same president who proudly signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act back in January of 2009?”

    Who’s democratic senators PAY WOMEN LESS than MEN..for the very same job. Democrats seem to be the FAILURES of their own passed bills.

  • Coffee Steve

    Ghezz is anybody watching Cnn or Msnbc anymore?

  • moncon

    Stabbing at a Texas college. Do I have to register my steak knives now?

  • Chriscee

    lmao @ Moncon….I can feel it coming…


    smh @ low information liberals.

  • Mike

    Wait for it. The reasons why Fox is ‘tanking’ or MSNBC’s scores were down last night:
    1. The NCAA Basketball Finals drew MSNBC’s audience away.
    2. The major networks have more viewers than Cable.
    3. Only dim witted racists watch Fox News (oh, wait, Faux News).
    4. Jeeze, list all the accomplishments of the Right (while touting that the UI rate decreases without recognizing that it’s a statistical abboration due to simply declining participation rates in the labor market).
    Yes, I don’t see Chris Hayes doing much, Maddow’s santimonious, self-righteous manners are turning off viewers. It’s always annoying to listen to someone who believes they’re the smartest person in the room.

  • Stan T.

    WOW…even Rachel Maddow can’t break 700K…and we’re told Fox News is losing viewers…but a few weeks ago, Rachel Maddow had 1.4 million viewers…when she admitted on air that she purposely edits film clips to attempt to make McCain look bad…IE she admitted she lies on her show…but Bill O had 2.7 million viewers…that’s not down…that’s almost the as many viewers than MSNBC’s whole prime time lineup combined!

  • AppleStinx

    How did “All In” do compared to last Monday, the day of its debut? Down 21% in total viewers and down 38% in the A25-54 demo.

  • Stan T.

    @moncon and chriscee

    They won’t even mention the Texas mass stabbing…because knives are part of the left’s agenda. Only guns are…

  • Trent

    “FOX NEWS is ALWAYS on fire.”

    That’s only because REALLY OLD people watch Fox. Young people like me get our news from the web (Buzzfeed, The Daily Beast, HuffPost, NY Times, etc.) and via phone apps. Breaking news alerts on my phone work best.

    It cracked me up when I first discovered this page. A collection of old people patting each other on the back for coming together to keep FNC’s ratings up. It doesn’t matter what Fox’s ratings are if they are ONLY getting old people to tune in. Fox is not influencing anyone. We learned that from the recent election.

    But, hey…if it makes you losers feel better about yourselves (and Fox), then please continue. LMAO!!!

  • Ratboy

    @ Stan T.

    Posted April 9, 2013 at 2:12 PM

    WOW…even Rachel Maddow can’t break 700K

    But Stan, the network news beat OReilly, NBC makes more money as a whole than FOX cable news, Stewart and Colbert had more in the different demo than Fox, all the old people are the reason that FOX wins all the time, AND………..Obama is smarter than anybody else in the world!

    GOT IT????? GOOOD! carry on

  • Laurence Glavin

    Stephanie Miller has mentioned that she has almost become a regular on Erin Burnett’s show. Steph is a H-U-G-E talent, her tour around the country even in cities that don’t have liberal radio stations because radio-station conglomerates would rather have lower ratings than operate rational radio stations that spread the truth, has been filling various venues where she appears! After Current TV folds, HLN should pick up the Stephanie Miller simulcast from 9:00 am Eastern till noon, after Robin Meade. It’s just possible that the Burnett show is picking up some viewers in the hopes that Steph will be on. My TV’s clicker has a back-and-forth option: I may sample CNN during the 7:00 pm “Hardball” showing myself during commercial breaks.

  • Jeff

    GOD Chriscee is dumb!! She reported: National Organization for Women: OBAMA IS SWINDLING WOMEN

    Read beyond the title, they are protesting the proposed cuts to Social Security etc.in his budget.

    The things your own party have been dreaming of doing for YEARS!
