    Cooper kicked butt at 10pm!

  • Tama

    All joking aside you have to think MSNBC is re-thinking the Hayes move. In fact I think his show is hurting the lead into RM. I give it the summer then he’s out of that spot if not out at the studio.

  • Mike

    Amazing but the demos for “The Five” and “Fox Report” beats ‘Tingles’ combined demo’s scores. While keeping Tingles on the air is the best news for conservatives, it really does insult our national intelligence to list him as a ‘journalist’. Frankly, it insults our national reputation to list MSNBC as a ‘news organization’.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Cooper kicked butt because of breaking news of the poor girls being found alive. If CNN could arrange a tragic event everyday they would have something there.

  • Ratboy

    WOW The Five, Shep, Brett, Bill, Shaun, all great numbers and the MESSDNC just keeps circling the drain!

    Must be one heck of a lot of old people watchin TV these days huh? :shock:

  • AppleStinx

    Did I miss something? What calamity happened last night?

  • Sicilian Papa

    Tingles actually lost viewers following Sharpies show. That is brutal! It is good thing they signed that ass-et to a new contract. Geez, what they won’t do for an O. fanatic.

    Chris Hayes, he’s finished, poor guy, I do feel sorry for him. He makes hugeness melon Sgt. Ed DNC Schultz look good.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Story of the kidnapped girls broke at around 10pm

  • Coffee Steve

    Fox go BOOM!!!!!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    The Five nearly triples Tingles at 5pm. Good thing they signed that ass-et to a new contract. I have a thrill up my leg reading his ratings. As you all of you know I find him to be a reprehensible human being. In the same league with Bill Maher.

  • Ratboy

    :lol: look at Larry O’s numbers! :lol: AND HE WAS THERE LAST NIGHT!!!! :lol: :lol:

  • Chriscee

    @Coffee Steve

    Big BOOM!!!

    I looked at Ed Schultz twitter feed…..

    And he had “throwback Tuesday.” And his feed read this: “Hey Rush, why don’t you wrap your fat ass in the flag!”

    I guess FAT Eddie hasn’t looked in the mirror for quite sometime. He’s way fatter than Rush.

    It’s all the left wing has left..is name calling…and of course the blame game.

    @ Sicilian Papa

    The Five nearly triples Tingles at 5pm.

    But Tingles said he got beat by them cuz they are a bunch of racists! :shock: :lol:

  • Sicilian Papa

    Key demo, Larry O. 5th!

  • Chriscee

    I had a bit of Rachel on….she was all over some dude about the 3d gun copy thing. She had some libertarian dude on there…

    msnBS will go to any lengths to protect Obama and make sure his agenda is passed..

  • Coffee Steve

    Hello Comcast, you noticing anything?

  • Sicilian Papa



    Tingles is nuts! A reprehensible human being! The racist thing is getting as old as spit on his guests shirts.

  • Raz

    Wait until the jury verdict for the Jodi Arias trial, the ratings are going to go nuts.

  • Ratboy

    But hold on guys. Lets get a handle on the reality…………network news beat cable news and FOX and so did Colbert and Stewart and when you add all the MSNBC numbers together for the week they beat a couple of the FOX guys at 3 am and Bill Maher just opened a journalism school to teach FOX how to be real journalists.

    Got it! Good!

    Barrow won’t run for Senate in Georgia

    Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.) announced Tuesday he won’t run for the Senate in Georgia, dealing a major blow to Democrats’ hopes of picking up the seat.

    “I’m grateful for the encouragement I’ve received from folks all across the State of Georgia, but I’ve decided that I will not be a candidate for the Senate in 2014,” Barrow said in a statement.

    The longtime congressman had been mulling a bid for the seat since Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) announced his retirement, months ago.

    He probably has something to hide…he’s been a congressman for 8 long years…. and he doesn’t want the DIRT DUG UP.
