Bad News that just makes you smile
Fox News had its worst ratings since 2001 in January, according to the latest figures.
The network had a 12-year low in the coveted 25-54 demographic in primetime and fell to its lowest total day ratings since 2008, a press release from rival cable channel MSNBC stated on Tuesday.
And January marked the worst month ever for Fox’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren” among the 25-54 demo, as well as the channel’s lowest total viewership in the 10 p.m. hour since July 2008.
At MSNBC, the cable network saw its ratings go up 11 percent in the 25-54 demo compared to January 2012. And “The Rachel Maddow Show” topped CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” this month, and also ranked number one among the 18-34 demo.
Fox News, meanwhile, had nine of the 10 top programs in January — Maddow’s show was the only non-Fox News program to enter the top 10, in the last slot, as the Huffington Post pointed out.
Boo hoo, so sad. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch. It looks like the ride is over for a while. Perhaps all the lies they told finally turned people off. Where has Dick Morris been lately? How about that anti immigration dude? I have repressed his name. Too bad the bad ratings hit Greta Van Susteren to worst. Other than her infatuation with Sarah Palin, she is a pretty decent sort and the least biased of any of the night time crew.
Cheers for Rachel Maddow. There are few people in the field who are as professional as Rachel Maddow. I think one of the best all around informative shows on is Morning Joe. Joe Scarborogh really pisses me off half the time. Mika can get on her high horse also. She just makes you want to slap her when she gets on the subject of nutritian.They aren’t always the nicest people and Joe is often down right rude, especially in his treatment of women. So why did I just praise the show? It is one of the best talk shows going. Their line up is generally excellent.
This morning they had Al Gore on, talking about his new book. Then they had Bill Gates on talking about the foundation’s attempt to eradicate polio as a disease and what really had to happen before their goal was accomplished. The days I don’t watch are the ones when Mika’s father is on. Yawn.
