Ratings may sink Ronan Farrow's show on MSNBC
New York Daily News ^ | March 31, 2014 | MARIANNE GARVEY, BRIAN NIEMIETZ AND LACHLAN CARTWRIGHT

Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l.

Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.

“He sort of stinks on TV,” an MSNBC source told Confidenti@l. “He hasn’t turned out to be the superstar they were hoping for.”

NOOOOOOO!!!! Ronan has been my best source on the subject of Bronies.

He thought he was the next liberal superstar?

Didn't he already win a "Cronkite Award"?

Ratings? Do any of the shows on MSNBC get enough viewers to qualify for ratings?

Ratings DO matter! They reward people for the lack of them..

Really.

If ratings mattered, they would all commit seppuku on the air.

Ronan is another example of a meta-human that populates the Liberal universe.

Ronan Farrow and Al Sharpton; MSNBC's dual axis of unwatchable programming.

MSNBC is running out of “talent” to fall back on. I hear that Phil Donahue is still alive. Does Jimmy Carter want a show?

Bill Clinton could do late-night interviews with washed up B-movie actresses, followed by Carlos Danger doing couples counseling. I bet MSNBC would get their highest ratings with that combo. Clinton might do it for free, if the right perks were included.

So, does anyone know how they stay on the air?

If McDonalds decided to make the absolutely most unpalatable food they possibly could, wouldn’t they go bankrupt?

To paraphrase: What they gave a cable news network, and nobody came?

Are Bronies’ real or is it a joke? When I first saw the phenomena, I thought it was some sort of way for pedophiles to get their foot in the door but they seem to get into it with the toys and whatnot???

Just Google, “faces of atheism” and you’ll see our intellectual superiors, there’s a lot of Bronies there.

Someone has bad ratings on MSNBC?

And they say he stinks on TV?

(snort!)

MSNBC would do better if they changed over to a shopping channel: MSQVC. Maybe sell things like the liberal MSNBC viewers could use:

TV trays. Pizza plates. Acne cream. Horsefly repellant.

Personally, I think the only "ratings" that matter to MSNBC come from the office of George Soros.

son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which)

Not sure I could go through life always fearing that I might have Woody Allen's genes in me.
