    Tuesday is open.

  • usa8888

    Cnn beats Fox Fake in the demo as Fox continues to attract primarily the elderly Lawrence Welk crowd and tries to rile them up with the benghazi Boondoggle…..

  • Cindy

    The “Useful Idiots” that usually watch MSNBC, have tuned in to HLN because of the Arias train wreck.

  • usa8888

    CNN smacks down Fox Fake in the demo as fox corners the elderly market with a propensity for backward thinking…

  • usa8888

    Fox is trying to use the Benghazi Boondoggle to attract viewers and it isn’t working…..only with the Lawrence Welk crowd…..

  • Todd

    Libtards go to CNN and HLN for breaking news…. Who can blame them The clown lineup on MSNBC would be hard to watch.

  • Mark2

    Wow…

    Anderson Cooper beat O’Reilly again in the key demo.

    Bill must be furious.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    USA888888

    I hear they have a great math and reading program a Faber. “Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life son.”

    Fox wins the overall and key demo in prime time. CNN does win a couple of demos with breaking news. Fox’s ratings are great! They are on the rise again.

    MSNBC is doing terribly on busy news day.

  • AppleStinx

    In a reversal of demo fortunes, ‘The Factor’ came in second while both ‘Hannity’ and “On the Record’ beat their respective competitors.

  • Mark

    Hi, I’m Chris Hayes.

    Please watch my show tonight as I slash my wrists.

    8PM/7PM.

  • Chriscee

    Awwww liberals hate the elderly…why?

    I thought you liberals loved the elderly.

  • Trent

    FOX NEWS: “Why won’t Americans get made about Benghazi like they did about Watergate…WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY!!!” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    It’s hilarious to see conservatives get excited every time a Benghazi hearing is held then become crushed when the public doesn’t give a shid. LMAO

    Personally, I find the whole ordeal amusing. Keep coming with the hearings. But, you all should stock on kleenex from now on. HAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Chriscee

    Jodi Arias is done…so will be CNN and msnBS!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    471,000 in key demo for Fox prime time, WOW, GREAT!

    CNN 454,000 very good.

    MSNBC 173,000…5TH place!…LAST!…TIME TO FOLD THE TENT….STICK A FORK IN THEM…THE PARTIES OVER….TIME TO PUT THAT ONE TO BED….KICKED THE BUCKET…

    LEAN FORWARD!

  • Mark2

    CNN & HLN(CNN2) draw over 800K in the key demo.

    That’s a lot of key demo viewers.

  • Mark

    Hahahahaha…it’s funny that 4 Americans died in Benghazi. Hahahhahaha.

    One of them was gay….oh wait, it’s still funny.hahahahahahah

  • van

    Bill Oreilly No Spin Zone smacking every one with facts and total numbers. You cant make this up. Spin it any way you like it. Its the cold facts.If your watching the Lawerance Welk show you are beyound any demo here. You must be 80 plus years which are not counted.

    8888 is now a CNN fan. He cant make up his mind on who to watch. Just dont vote please. You already got the village idiot in office.

  • Sicilian Papa

    @

    TRENT

    The public never sees Benghazi. I am going to enroll you at Faber if you keep posting this way! “Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life son.”

  • AppleStinx

    It looks like Fox News beat them all (including HLN) in the 4pm hour.

  • Doug Z

    Jeff ghost writer for usa000000000000000000
