    The Republican National Convention clearly reached its crescendo on Thursday night. The four-day run-up until Donald Trump's accepting of the nomination, while giving a strong ratings performance, did not bring any atypical highs for the political meetup. Trump's speech didn't change that narrative by much. With all three broadcast networks and cable news networks now tallied for the 10 p.m. hour, it appears just over 32 million viewers tuned into Trump's extended time on stage. On the broadcast networks alone Thursday night, Trump's time on the stage brought in 12.3 million viewers to the 10 o'clock hour on through the...

    Buoyed by the GOP debate, Fox News' 'The Kelly File' enjoyed its third month ever at No. 1 among adults 25-54. Donald Trump might have issues with Megyn Kelly, but viewers evidently don't. If August is any indication, her Kelly File is shaping up to be the cable news destination for coverage of the 2016 election. Kelly had the highest-rated cable news show for the month, even with her weeklong vacation. Buoyed by the record-breaking showcase of Fox News Channel's GOP debate and her 11 p.m. telecast that night, she outpaced typical victor Bill O'Reilly for only the third full...

    The highly anticipated series A.D.: The Bible Continues drew an impressive 9.5 million viewers on its Easter Sunday premiere, proving that there is indeed a massive audience hungry for faith-based programming. According to Variety, A.D.'s first episode, which focused primarily on the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, was night's top-rated program, making it the highest-rating premiere since 2011. "#ADtheseries was the #1 show in America last night! #ADtheseries great news!" producer Roma Downey tweeted on Monday morning. In 2013, Downey her husband, Mark Burnett, shocked Hollywood with the success of their 10 hour miniseries, The Bible, which featured the...

    February was another heartbreaker for the $65 billion television ad business. Commercial ratings — the viewing “currency” that determines what advertisers pay for TV time — cratered across broadcast and cable networks, marking the fifth straight month of double-digit declines for the industry. “It’s clear the downward spiral in TV ratings continues with no end in sight,” media analyst Michael Nathanson wrote in a research note on Friday. Overall prime-time broadcast network ratings were off 12 percent last month compared to a year ago, while cable networks dropped 11 percent, according to his report. Nathanson looked at so-called C3 ratings,...

    According to the Weather Channel, its 6am "Wake Up with Al Roker" beat both CNN's New Day" and MSNBC's "Morning Joe" this month:"Morning Joe" has been shedding viewers for about a year. "New Day" is shaping up to be one of television's all-time titanic disasters. In other words, it's not that Al Roker's numbers are so high, it's that CNN's and MSNBC's numbers are so low. Overall, this is another sign of the slow-motion fall of left-wing cable news networks. While -- thanks to great producing, on-air talent, and a willingness to cover news stories the left-wing MSM ignore --...
  • Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Tops Cable Kingpin Bill O’Reilly For First Time For Entire Week

    06/09/2014 6:22:47 PM PDT · by windcliff · 55 replies ^ | 6-9-14 | Dominic Patten
    It might be known as the week that saw an earthquake at Fox News Channel as Megyn Kelly beat the almost unbeatable Bill O’Reilly in the key news demo last week. Yes, the 9 PM The Kelly File has topped 8 PM’s The O’Reilly Factor on FNC before both on individual nights and even for a full week. However, those single nights were mainly around the time Kelly’s show debuted in early October last year and on Election Night 2013. The Kelly File beat The Factor during the week of May 5, but O’Reilly himself wasn’t hosting that week. Last...

    Fox News Channel maintains a handsome lead in primetime and total day, while primetime runner-up CNN continues a healthy climb from the lows of 2012. Averaging 539,000 viewers in primetime and 175,000 viewers in the adults 25-54 demographic, MSNBC suffered double-digit drops from last May -- down a respective 20 and 19 percent.

  • RNC Ratings Night Three: Romney Results In Ratings Rise,

    08/31/2012 2:21:28 PM PDT · by MNDude · 20 replies
    Night three of the Republican National Committee culminated in a speech from GOP nominee Mitt Romney, and the ratings rose accordingly. As was the case during the first two nights of the RNC, Fox News Channel was the most watched TV news outlet, besting the broadcast networks from 10-11PM. Last night, however, the gap between FNC and its competitors was even wider, as it topped the next two networks, NBC and ABC, combined in total viewers. Every outlet except NBC improved on its Tuesday night ratings in both total viewers and the adults 25-54 demo. Compared to the final night...
  • Does Obama Think Libya Is Less Important Than Dancing With The Stars?

    Business Insider ^ | March 26, 2011 | Glynnis MacNicol
    President Obama's nationally televised address tonight on Libya is scheduled for 7:30pm. It is an odd time for a presidential address -- especially one dealing with America at war (yes, yes, technically not war, but still) -- it means most of the West Coast will still be at work or just coming home from school. Normally big addresses are scheduled for 8pm or 9pm so the West Coast is able to catch, too. It's possible the timing was a concession to network heads anxious not to lose valuable prime time advertising dollars. Except the only thing not on repeat tonight...

    2ND UPDATE: It was a great opening for Conan O'Brien on TBS last night. The comedian's eponymous talk show drew big 4.2 million viewers and massive 3.3 million adults 18-49 and 2.5 million in 18-34 to rank as the top-rated latenight show on TV - broadcast or cable - last night. This was an impressive 2/3+ of the audience he attracted for his debut on NBC's The Tonight Show in May 2009. Conan ranked as the No.1 latenight talk show telecast of all time on basic cable, beating The Daily Show's Oct. 29, 2008 edition. It also topped all other...

    A new poll released by Gallup shows that American distrust in the mass media has reached a record high. This is the fourth straight year that a majority of respondents have said that they have little or no trust in the media, but the 57% who say that this year is a new record for the poll. According to the poll, 48% of respondents say the media is too liberal, 15% say it is too conservative and 33% say it is “just right.” You can see how the responses have changed over the years here: (snip to picture of chart)...

    This is only partly related to Redeye actually. It has been posted here, about how Redeye had more viewers than CNNs AC, then just a day or so, a news story was posted that 3 AM Redeye was getting more viewers than all of CNNs prime time. I can accept that, even though I myself am not a big fan of the show. But it got me thinking, about the 2AM re-run of Beck, and how it stands in the ratings. The sirte I look at for ratings doesn't list any shows after the Late Show ratings. I was wondering...

    Keith Olbermann is on television to prove even people who are both stupid and nasty can find work on TV. This is the man who is so mean spirited that he is mocked on air by the people of his own network. Olberman is a hero of the left because he arguably has the worst case of Bush Derangement Syndrome ever found. His hatred of anything right-wing became so venomous that he became a big hero to the Move-on, Daily Kos-type crowd. MSNBC saw this moonbat-love and made him the centerpiece of their all leftist, all the time primetime line...

    Nothing like a boycott to really hurt ratings. Glenn Beck had his highest viewership ever Thursday averaging 3.34M Total Viewers. His was the second-highest rated program in Total Viewers in cable news behind The O'Reilly Factor's 3.61M. And Beck was even bigger with the ad-friendly demo, putting up his second best numbers since the show premiered in January. In A25-54 viewers, Beck was #1 for the day, and remember, his show airs at 5pmET/2pmPT when viewers aren't in front of their TVs like they are at 8, 9 or 10pm. Although, last night many of those primetime viewers were siphoned...

    This summer is one for the record books: more than a dozen new programs launched on broadcast television and not one breakout hit, with returning shows down and ratings at an all-time low. After a tough season for broadcasters, summer has been a huge disappointment. "The sheer amount of waste is staggering," one broadcast executive said. "They say reality is low cost, but there are still costs." Accumulated near the bottom of the ratings list are new programs like ABC's wonky "Grey's Anatomy"-in-space drama "Defying Gravity" (3.3 million viewers, 1.0 adults 18-49 rating); ABC's ironically titled "The Superstars" (3.8 million,...

    "Shovel your ratings" might have been Morning Joe's unstated message to Keith Olbermann today. With the latest ratings showing Rachel Maddow's new MSNBC show beating Olbermann's Countdown, the MJ panel went out of its way to congratulate Maddow on her success, repeatedly mentioning what a "good person" she is and how nice it is to see such people do well. The crew was riffing off the Drudge headline "Move Over, Olbermann, Rachel Maddow Tops MSNBC Ratings." As seen in the Drudge screencap [after the jump], on Tuesday Maddow beat Olbermann--the perennial MSNBC ratings leader--by a count of 1.8 million to...

    Digital video recorders are a leading reason for the slide in television viewing this year, Nielsen Media Research said Thursday. Many of the top shows -- from ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" to Fox's "American Idol" to CBS' "CSI" -- saw their ratings drop in the spring. Prompted this month by questions from NBC, Nielsen began an investigation into the factors that could have led to the slide. Nielsen's probe is almost complete, but in the meantime the company has discovered several things. "DVRs appear to be the largest factor in that," said Pat McDonough, Nielsen senior vp planning policy and analysis.

    Outraged ABC viewers are calling on the network to fire Diane Sawyer after the anchor broadcast a TV segment that included the beating of a teenage girl by her father – without first going to authorities about what was captured on tape. During Friday's "Primetime" news magazine show, Sawyer presented a segment about dysfunctional stepfamilies, which featured a profile of a family in Lake Placid, N.Y. According to a report in the New York Post, state police officials in Lake Placid say they are going over the tape to determine if charges can be brought against the natural father,...

    Almost every parent of a teenager wonders how on Earth they're going to be able to monitor what sensationalistic media images or ideas children are engrossed in today.

On the television, kids can see WB's "The Surreal Life," its sleazy reality-show plot often revolving around a porn star, Ron Jeremy. Then there are video games, which have grown increasingly sophisticated -- and unfortunately, increasingly raunchy and bloody -- since the musty old days of Donkey Kong and Pac-Man.More than...

    COMMENTARY By MIKEMULHERN Diversity is not only a social issue in stock-car racing, but it's also a major business issue, in Daytona and Charlotte and in New York's TV canyons. And Dodge's decision to drop sponsorship for Bill Lester has NASCAR executives scrambling again on the diversity front. George Pyne said NASCAR "will help put four minorities in race cars and 12 minorities in a crew-development program" next year, although Pyne and other NASCAR officials aren't offering any specifics. The issue looks deceptively simple: Golf has Tiger Woods, so where is NASCAR's Tiger? It's not that simple. But to say...
