    Wow MSNBC has just sunk to the bottom …and in such a short time …I am thinking people are getting tired of Hate and are looking for something more objective …..you can only tell people you love the Pres and hate Repubs so many times b4 it starts to sound old and tired ……

  • usa8888

    Not sure which ratings Hockey has been reading but MSNBC has been number 1 for months in the demo on the weekends……

  • Mr. Gone

    The weekend ratings WERE MSNBC’s only strong ratings.
    After their pathetic coverage of the bombings in Boston they appear to have lost that now.
    The MSNBC commentators put all their chips on the bombers bring members of the Tea Party or the NRA only to be dissapointed in the truth.
    Hopefully the liberals have had their fill of the rhetoric.

  • jec

    Whatever happened to Ed Schultz? He was supposed to start a new weekend program on MSNBS by now.
    Or has he joined Phil Donahue and Rosie O’Donnell in “never never land”?

  • sj

    For those saying MSNBC failed miserably in reporting the Boston Bombing, it depends on what you think news should be. If you are going by ratings and think that is what is most important, I guess they did. If you think presenting facts and not speculating or injecting politics (during this particular case), they came out on top by far. Sometimes good journalism is not always what gets good ratings. Some people like Political Rants, some people like tabloid/sensationalism and some people just want the news. It’s all relative to your values. Ed will be on the first weekend in May.

    @Hockey doody up there, What a joke, Fox propaganda network is the most viscious hateful propaganda machine on TV. They are bought and paid for to do that first, news is not their main goal. What planet do you live on?

  • Hockey4um

    SJ you sound like a typical angry Lefty …….. Fair and Balanced is the way to go …people appreciate that and it shows by the ratings ….even the Huff posted that the most biased network out there is MSNBC with over 80 % Left WIng Opinion …At least on Fox they offer competing views … MSNBC they offer up 3 Libs and attack ….

  • Ralph Hahn

    Usually, very few, if any, post on the weekend ratings. MSNBC was #3 for Saturday, total day and 25-54 demo.

    Fox News took Sunday, total day. Sunday prime went to CNN, with Fox just 12,000 under CNN in the demo.

    And, we have a new name-caller aboard, or maybe one of the same posting with a different name.

  • Raz

    SJ welcome. If you are a sock puppet, go back to the drawer.

  • Ralph Hahn

    This is from another page on tvbythenumbers today about FOX News being #2 most watched cabler:

    >>> During April 2013, FNC was the second most watched network in all of cable in primetime Total Viewers, behind only USA. The last time FNC ranked number two in Primetime Total Viewers outside of an election month was in March 2011 during the Japan earthquake.

    The other cable news networks ranked outside the top ten in primetime. CNN came in 17th while MSNBC was 27th.

    During Total Day, FNC came in third among Total Viewers while CNN was number 13 and MSNBC was 28th. <<<

    Sorry for the duplication above.

  • Hockey4um

    Be careful you will confuse those like SJ if you use facts …People like SJ are not used to facts …they are of the Propaganda type ….

  • Sj

    All you people here are right wing nuts. Just like in everything else in life, you come on this sight, like you somehow own it. You gang up on anyone else with a differing opinion, and bully them. That’s what you do best. Somehow it makes you feel, well, like you are somehow superior. Bully all you want, gang up in your echo chamber and sling slurs all day long if you like. Just because you have been indoctrinated by propaganda and don’t even realize it, does not make you superior here or anywhere else. I am not superior to you either, just because my values or views are different about some things and I watch all the news channels to form my views and do alot of praying as well. I don’t just watch one news channel and take it as gospel. I try to see things from all perspectives and in the end I see it different than you and this is my sight too, by the way.

  • Sj

    Oh and by the way…Peace to you all and have a good week!

  • Mr. Gone

    Ah….liberal tolerance

    Gotta love it

  • Hockey4um

    Dear SJ I was just pointing out facts ….while you were caught up in propaganda and doing the Left things … manipulating facts …good try though 1
