    (the 6-9am averages on the table apparently belong to Friday, March 22)

  • Joe

    So much for Ralphie Hahn growing up. Still acting like a five year old and saying the same stuff he says everyday. What a waste you are.

  • Raz

    Thank goodness we have a country like Canada to our north. Good folks, brave and willing to help, eh.

  • Eggmanbill

    @Chriscee you forgot to add, Canada thwarts plot to blow up US-Canada rail line with the assistance of the US National Security Agents. You report news like the Fox No-News channel, great work and cooperation for the Obama Administration again!!!!!

  • VeryFiner

    CNN is only big when there is a crisis… their numbers will fall below MSNBC next week when the Boston Bombing story has slowed down. MSNBC is consistent..

  • Chriscee


    My source was from Reuters. I had put that on Thursdays page. Tyvm!

  • Michael Page

    Nothing new here it’s the same people posting and Jeff is still trying to convince people he has a brain.
    Jeff ! And you have the guts to call others stupid when you show stupidity with your post .
    Jeff you’re nothing but a brain dead ignorant pos.

    Laurence Glavin
    Who really gives a rat’s a$$.

  • Ratboy

    Hey Hey there Michael Page!!!!! That’s MY but your talk in about!!!! :shock: :lol: :lol:

  • Mt Rick

    Rat I will agree with you that CNN is the go to Cable News Network for people that do not typically watch cable news. This Friday and next week we will probably see CNN back in the 300 to 500 range in total viewers.
    CNN doesn’t seem to have as large of a loyal regular audiences.

  • Michael Page

    I bet your butt has more brain cells then Jeff.

  • usa8888

    CNN blows Fox Fake out of the water, but Fox continues to corner the elderly market….

  • Dave

    I wondered how long it would take sub-standard people like you to try and blamer terrorism on President Obama.
    What a short memory you have.Remember when Bush was asleep at the switch and allowed over 3000 Americans to be killed.He didn’t take the time to read from the CIA “al qaeda determine to attack inside the US”.
    The the little fool started a war in Iraq,on false info and he knew it. His goons fed false info to the congress and the public.He belongs in prison.

  • Dave

    It ,of course, should be “blame” and not blamer.

  • usa8888

    Mr Fake Nielson–which of the following traits are yours: racist, bigot, narrow-minded, backward thinking, religious fanatic, greedy and insensitive, general bozo? It is a fact that these are the traits of the right wing–just consider Chriscee, Van, Dana, Rat, Coffee, Upand over, etc…

  • Chriscee

    @Dave…..do you remember when Billy Clinton let Osama go?? He was way too busy with Monica to worry about national security. Do you remember that?

    If liberals had done their job..prior to 9/11/2001….perhaps the Twin Towers would still be standing and the 3000+ murdered people WOULD STILL BE ALIVE.

    Liberals FAIL time and again @ NATIONL SECURITY.

  • usa8888

  • Mt Rick

    Since the election MSNBC seems to be loosing market share. CNN was showing some strength up until March Madness then their numbers dropped. Typically CNN has lost viewers going into summer. If we have an active tornado season and Anderson cooper goes out into the storm to catch boards with his face CNN’s ratings will probably go up.

  • usa8888

    Mr. Fake Nielson–the sanitarium is now ready for you. A car will pick you up soon……

  • RedbarSoup

    AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH at Chriscee blaming liberals for 9/11.

    Blame EVERYTHING on liberals huh? What a delusional idiot, I guess she forgot how Saddam came into power…..or who was president during 9/11….

  • Chriscee

    On there is 8888 again..posting the SAME OLD RANTS from Thinkprogress and moveon.

    Too bad 8888 doesn’t have thought of his own…or a grasp of reality.
