MSNBC Ratings "In The Crapper"
Big Hairy News ^ | June 1, 2012 | Scooter Van Neuter

NEW YORK (BHN) - Industry experts anticipate MSNBC will make major changes, after the latest ratings show the network in a virtual free-fall.

"Look, we're getting beaten regularly by infomercials for that crinkly garden hose..." said one MSNBC executive. "I guess when you look at the turds we've got in front of the camera, it's no surprise we're in the crapper."

The Rachel Maddow Show delivered its lowest-rated month since it debuted in September 2008 (717 total viewers). "We've got to get either a real man or real woman in that time slot, because whatever the hell we've got now is just too weird for regular people - I know it is for me," said the executive.

Okay. Maybe this one will pass muster with the censors. Last night's post did not.

Yes, Chickee, it's a SATIRE SITE.

Yes, the article is satire, but is that a real picture?

That’s some satire that hits right on target.

Well, I guess people would rather watch an infomercial for a hose than be lectured by the likes of Rachel Maddow and Ed Schulz.

their ratings are in the toilet because they only focus on hard-hitting political objective news reporting.

One of the local channels just switched this afternoon to oldies TV shows.

Channel 4 in Dothan used to be just that but now they have 3 and sometimes I see a fourth channel. So instead of getting maybe 5 channels off the air I now get around 18-20. A few are duplicates so it is really maybe 15 different channels.

The one which now shows oldies had “Lost In Space” just on and “Star Trek” is on right now. I notice “Perry Mason” will be on in the mornings and that is one of my all time favorites.

I bet at least half my TV watching will now be that oldies channel.

Considering that everything out of the mouths of MSNBC is pure crap the title is fitting

Yep. The communist takeover of our nation is pretty much complete at this point.

Just noticed some of their other shows and it is going to be packed with old favorites. “Gun-smoke”, “Bonanza”, “Hawaii 5-0” “Get Smart” “Dragnet” “The Rifleman” and a bunch more I can’t recall off hand.

Bring back Keith Obermann! At least he was entertaining. My advise: Get Jessie Ventura to do a show! You would do better with the People’s Power Hour—A communist hour of how they see the news (it might be very much like what they have now)— Maybe do a Pravda Hour from Moscow. Be edgy—be innovative—You might want to offer more than leftist pablum and talking points. Maybe John Edwards could do a show with his G/F ? people might watch that.
