  • How Bad Has Trump Derangement Syndrome Gotten? MSNBC Just Reached #1 In Prime Time

    There’s no denying it… President Trump has been shaking up the television ratings game ever since he came down the golden escalator. And now, with outrage (or fauxrage in many cases) being the top menu item on the TV menu, MSNBC seems to be reaping the rewards. And if this isn’t a blip on the radar, it’s truly phenomenal. For the first time in the network’s entire history, they finished the week number one in total viewership in prime time, not just among the cable news channels, but for all cable networks. For the first time in the network’s...

    NEW YORK (AP) MSNBC says it has hired former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren to host a daily, Washington-based news program at the dinner hour. Just like Tucker Carlson, who Fox named as Megyn Kellys prime-time replacement on Thursday, Van Susteren completes the cable news hat trick: hosting shows on CNN, Fox and MSNBC. Her show will air at 6 p.m. ET.

    Fox News has broken its own record that stood since the Iraq War. The channel has been the most-watched basic cable network for the past six weeks, which hasnt happened since March/April 2003, at the start of the Iraq War. In prime time, FNC was up +22 percent in viewers and up +24 percent in the A25-54 demo. In total day viewing, FNC was up +20 percent and up +16 percent, respectively. The ratings for February, 2016 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data): Prime time (Mon-Sun): 2,220,000 total viewers / 427,000 A25-54 Total Day (Mon-Sun): 1,340,000 total viewers / 263,000...

    Just last week, a years-long tradition came to a screeching halt. "You want me to put it on Fox News," I asked my wife. "No," she replied. "I'm done with Fox News." My job is to monitor the mainstream media, which is something that eats up about 14 hours of a day that begins at 6 a.m. when the cable morning shows begin. Lying next to me, my good sport of a wife suffers through about an hour of "Morning Joe," whatever they call that left-wing garbage fire on CNN, and the rest. Out of habit, before I head to...

    Since the first GOP presidential debate last August, Fox News Channel seems to have lost its perception mojo with its core right-leaning audience. By mid February, FNCs perception by Republican adults 18 and over had reached its lowest point in more than three years, and has declined by approximately 50% since January of this year.
  • Scarborough: 'I Blame Cable News' for Cops Being Less Safe

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    You wish he had named names . . . On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough flatly stated "I do blame it on cable news" for "people wearing uniforms being a lot less safe today than they were before Ferguson." So just which cable networks did Joe have in mind? Until last week [when he was relegated to the Sunday morning desert], Scarborough's own MSNBC was the Al Sharpton network. So surely Scarborough was pointing the finger at least partially at MSNBC. But as he continued, Scarborough also identified other unnamed cable networks that he accused of "glorifying" Vester Flanagan and...

    Cable news is in trouble. The Pew Research Center reports that the median daily audience for Fox, CNN, and MSNBC is down about 11 percent since 2008. The Washington Post's Paul Farhi seesa grim future for the industry. He argues that cable news outlets are pretty much where newspapers were a decade ago: their audience is aging, their medium is being disrupted by new technologies, and the next generation of viewers is developing habits and preferences that they're poorly placed to serve. (This is probably a good moment to note that I'm a contributor to MSNBC.) The networks may still...

    As Fox Newss audience continues to age, the conservative network inches close to death as in 2014 its median audience dropped to 1.1 million. > Pew Research State of the Media Report quoted < -but- Fox News is still racking up big profits due to the high carriage fees that they charge providers. Fox News earns $1.50 per subscriber. This is the third highest carriage fee of any network. Fox News trails on ESPN and TNT in the amount charged per subscriber. Any liberal or progressive that has cable or satellite is paying Fox News $18 a year per household....

    News and entertainment are central to our lives, but public policy and legislation relating to television programming access can be confusing. Broadcast, cable and satellite TV issues are full of intimidating acronyms and baffling terminology. And most consumers have no idea that Washingtons power elites are mucking around inside their television sets. Following the bouncing ball of technical details and micro-policies is bewildering, but the need for reform is clear and essential legislation is finally making its way through Congress. American consumers are paying more than necessary for viewing services because of an outmoded legislative framework governing the broadcast and...

    Cable TV viewership is declining, local news audiences are growing, and the number of Americans watching the network's evening news broadcasts is vast and stable, according to the latest report from the Pew Research Journalism Project. Meanwhile, 36 percent of U.S. adults watch news video online. This is about the same audience percentage that gets its news from Facebook or cable news channels, Pew reported. Most of this demographic is comprised of younger people. CNN, Fox News and MSNBC were all down in prime time viewership though Fox still led the pack. Some 22.6 million viewers watch the nightly network...

    The federal government shutdown damaged the reputations of Washington politicians but proved good business for the cable television news networksand taught some reporters new benefits of virtually instant communications. CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC saw their viewership increase during the 16-day partial shutdown, peaking at more than five million Wednesday evening when Congress passed a compromise bill to put the government back online. MSNBC, which has struggled in this post-election year, saw its average prime-time viewership jump 35 percent to 978,000 this month through Wednesday, compared to the first nine months of the year, the Nielsen company said....

    Unabashed, sneering, surreal lefty propaganda isn't selling. America's least-watched "major" cable "news" network has continued its ratings slide this summer, falling off a cliff within the key 25-54 demographic. I put "news" in scare quotes because MSNBC is not a news outfit, by its own president's admission, and according to empirical independent studies. The network's numbers are way down across the board and have sustained especially dramatic erosion during the key primetime hours: MSNBC continued its rough 2013 in the ratings, continuing to lose significant audience from 2012. The problems were particularly prevalent in primetime, with some shows losing close...

    During an Ask Me Anything event on Reddit today, MSNBCs Rachel Maddow admitted that she was a fan of FOX News anchor Shepard Smith citing his anchorman gravitas. Maddow was asked by a Reddit user if she admired any anchors from other cable news channels. I really like the way Shep Smith balances anchorman gravitas with a willingness to put the artifice aside and acknowledge what it really going on, Maddow explained. Some of us can pull off seeming like human beings on TV, some of us can pull off V.O.G. (Voice of God) authority, but Shep is really very...
