Skip to comments.MSNBC crushed in Zimmerman ratings race

MSNBC's ratings woes came into sharp relief on Monday with the release of the preliminary numbers for the Zimmerman verdict.
In the 10-11 p.m. hour on Saturday night, when the verdict in, Fox News had 3,682,000 total viewers; CNN had 3,407,000 total viewers and won the coveted demo with 1,716,000 viewers aged 25-to-54.

In the same hour, MSNBC had 1,298,000 total viewers -- about one-third of Fox's total -- and a mere 510,000 viewers in the demo. (These are preliminary numbers; finals are in tomorrow.)
Despite branding itself as "the place for politics," MSNBC went wall-to-wall on the Zimmerman trial after watching its ratings tank in recent months. It doesn't seemed to have helped.

I was one of the people watching MSNBC after the Zimmerman verdict. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Comcast is run by hardheaded business types. I wonder how much longer before they pull the plug on this cash hemmorage.....
What did Fox have in the 25-54 demo?
“Bass! How low can you go...”
I watched MSNBC just to watch the heads exploding
I ended up watching CNN over the weekend, because Fox is just pathetic when it comes to breaking news, especially on weekends.
I cannot stomach Mike Shmuckleberry and Bergaldo and Juan Williams. I do not care what any of them thinks on anything.
What I noticed while watching CNN though was...the people on that network are utterly obsessed with race and literally cannot speak about anything else. It was really a pitiful thing to watch.
hmm....wonder if it has anything to do with the fact all they did was apologize for the verdict and claim this is was just another “racist” incident in America??
Isn't ironic that Pravda is probably a better place for real news and info these days?
It’s the network that’s slogan is “bend over” or something...

I love to watch them wiqqle and squirm to make some kind of inane point while the world is going the other way.
How can they know this? Or is this one fo the reasons digital tv was forced upon us?
For one thing, anything over 100,000 for msnbc seems suspect to me.
Don’t worry MSNBC , Al Sharpasapin is going on a hundred city tour of Race Riots ,he’ll get them ratings up
Any firm that has the poor judgement to hire a reprobate like Al Sharpton should be crushed.
msNBC: A Network of Liars.
what’s the name of that smug yet angry intellectual looking MSNBC person with the thick glasses?
