    @Don….they are bashing O’Reilly and Beck today….because Beck was on O’Reilly last night.

    Liberals just don’t want to hear the truth. Glenn Beck has been right about 85% of the time. Liberals are just in denial.

    Once again..liberals protect Islamic Jihadists.

    Primetime P2+ (000s) 25-54 (000s) 35-64 (000s)
    FNC 2,115 263 654
    CNN 452 130 200
    MSNBC 789 226 374
    CNBC 126 50 69
    FBN 61 15 30
    HLN 565 178 324

    That’s gotta be an error on the part of CNN…they were on top of MSNBC by 200,000 on several hours and pretty much even on the rest…should be higher, and MSNBC has to be high, because only one MSNBC even broke 700..and most average 5-600

  • Jacob

    I know HLN is part of CNN but usually CNN has higher ratings than HLN

  • lbles

    In case you missed it.

    I just came from a visit to the daily cable ratings page and saw a show named “Hillbilly Blood” on the list.

    It’s a good show about folks that live way out in the woods. Off the grid as the older fellow calls it. The younger one has a family, with one kid, 18 to 24 months old and another one in the oven. No money no food.

    The show I saw last night showed the two fellow making a crossbow of gigantic proportions and a bear to carry. Went out hunting for deer but caught one in a “noose trap” and not killing it with a bow and arrow or with the huge crossbow.

    All in All interesting.

    Do not know if “HB” was one of the stars or that they are some of his family.

  • Mark2

    You guys have a great weekend…be back on Monday and I expect to see MSNBC in 2nd place overall and possible in 1st place in the Primetime 25-54 demo for Friday.

  • Jeff

    Key Demo for Fox has tanked!!! Their viewers have bailed. They must have a conspiracy theory or terror story to carry viewers.

  • sj

    With all due respect Chriscee, it will not be for that reason, but it WILL be because all the very far right crazies are out there foaming at the mouth like raving lunatics, ripping the constitution to shreds right in front of the whole world and showing everyone what stark raving hate mongers we are while they set back and laugh at us. No leader in the GOP is strong enough to get out there and calm them down to behave rationally and with dignity instead of something out of “Deliverance” or “Rambo”. Who the hell wants a Party like that to represent their country? Nothing but hatred and behavior like a lynch mob. For God’s sake they need to get a grip!!! Can’t believe I voted for John McCain, what a war monger. He must have stocks in military contractors. I am so ashamed I ever was a Republican.

  • SnapTie

    @Chriscee Bash Here’s #’s (92 – 459 @ TV Newser

  • Sicilian Papa

    That number for MSNBC is wrong. I did the math 158,000 in the key demo 5-11pm.

    Talk about tanking!

    PS If you want to include only 8-11pm the the number is 190,000.

    Terrible…awful….pitiful…embarrassing…woeful…MSNBC IS ON FIRE!

    CNN’S numbers are also somewhat higher than the 130k on ratings

  • Sicilian Papa

    Fox in the key demo is close to 330,000 5-11pm. Well above the 263,000 reported in the ratings and and more than double MSNBC.

  • Sicilian Papa

    The ratings show MSNBC at 226,000 in the key demo. Only Maddow got more at 237,000. All others well under 200,000

  • Sicilian Papa



    Your party supports people like Dr. Death in Philly.

    Enough said!

  • d.d.

    Want a laugh ?

    Look at the hat on the fiancé of John Boehner’s daughter



    Have fun !

  • Coffee Steve

    CNN is in trouble

    Our favorite mexican restaurant has made the switch to FOX News from cnn

  • usa8888

    The right wing old female kook Chriscee says the government has no role in improving the economy and jobs…and relies on lunatics like Beck and Slimebaugh for her direction….she should have finished high school….

  • usa8888

    The rat should be embarrassed because of his lack of brain power to state any right wing accomplishments…I know i would be if I were him, God forbid…

  • Coffee Steve

    You have a great weekend too MARK2, and thanks

  • usa8888

    Chriscee- Beck has never been right in his life……

  • usa8888

    Here are Chriscee’s priorites:
    1) eliminate birth control and support the Personhood Amendment
    2) eliminate gun background checks so more criminals and lunatics can get assault weapons and murder more children and adults
    3) give big tax breaks to billionaires with yachts and private jets
    4) replace science with creationism and bible study
    5) eliminate Social Security, Medicare, the EPA, the FDA, the Federal Reserve, etc.
    6) embrace racism, bigotry and general backward thinking
    7) worship lunatics like Slimebaugh, Beck, Hannity and send them money
    8) attend the CPAC Comedy Convention
    9) watch Faux News–the propaganda arm of the right wing (bias 24/7)
    10) ruin the economy by cutting spending in a recession or depression
    11) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

  • Jeff

    @The rat should be embarrassed because of his lack of brain power to state any right wing accomplishments….

    Is that all he should be embarrassed about?

    @Our favorite mexican restaurant has made the switch to FOX News from cnn…..

    After how many complaint letters or suggestion box notes??
