Lefty media death spiral update: Fox News outdraws MSNBC and CNN combined

Will MSNBC’s last viewer please change the channel? Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for MSNBC, along came the quarterly ratings reports. In both daytime and prime time, MSNBC endured its lowest quarterly demo numbers in a decade, and its total viewership since the final quarter of 2007. Prime-time viewership was down 45 percent in the demo from the first quarter of 2014, while daytime viewership was down 39 percent in the demo. Between the hours of 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Monday, for instance, more people were watching Al Jazeera America than MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, […]

Lena Dunham Appears Nude on SNL and Ratings Tank: Coincidence?

I have to admit that I pondered the title for this post far more than usual.  Using the words “Lena Dunham,” and “nude” in the post title might repel a ton more readers that it would attract.  But, just out of the irony, I thought I might cover it.  Come to think of it, I really wish she would cover it too-all of it. Lena Dunham did appear nude on SNL last Saturday, and the ratings tanked… As expected, Girls creator/star Lena Dunham got nude on Saturday Night Live this weekend, in one scene mocking the Genesis Eden story, where […]

Al Jazeera Ratings Makes MSNBC Look Like a Juggernaut: Yes, it’s THAT Bad

If you recall, Glenn Beck wanted to buy Current TV, Al Gore’s failed TV Network, but was told that it didn’t match their values.  However, selling it to a Muslim network, Al Jazeera, was just fine.  And, what has Al Jazeera done?  Almost worse than nothing, if ratings are going to be your judge… Al Jazeera America, which had hoped to challenge the major cable news networks, is falling on its face, based on last week’s ratings, in which some shows didn’t record a single viewer in the key 25-54 demographic. The network, which was purchased from Al Gore in […]

Rachel Maddow has Even Less Viewers, Ratings Down Nearly 50% From Same Time Last Year

“Worst ratings ever,” says Weasel Zippers… Via WFB: MSNBC’s ratings tumble continued with a poor August showing, with some programs seeing nearly a 50-percent drop in viewership from a year ago, TV Newser reports. Among the lowlights were the worst showings yet by its leading program The Rachel Maddow Show, with 43 percent and 47 percent drops in total viewers and the 25-54 demographic, respectively, and 40- and 42-percent drops in the same areas for The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell. […] In primetime, “The Rachel Maddow Show” posted all-time low ratings in total and demo viewers, down -43% and -47%, respectively. “The Last […]

MSM Death Watch: MSNBC Losing Audience, Now Behind CNN

In the decay of the MSM, MSNBC is now taking the brunt of the damage.  It would seem that covering for the Obama Administration and blaming every single issue on Earth on racism is causing people to tune out in droves.  Newsbusters has more… The ratings from April through June brought good news for the dominant Fox News Channel, the resurgent Cable News Network and HLN — which was previously known as the Headline Network — but that period saw MSNBC deliver its worst quarterly prime-time showing among total viewers and adults from 25 to 54 years of age since […]

Media Matters Boycotts Rush Limbaugh, and His Ratings Increase as Much as 60%!

It seems that the left has a problem-their boycotts help the targets!  Remember the boycott against Chick-fil-A, and the restaurant chain had records sales, with some stores running out of product to sell?  Then, came the boycott against Rush Limbaugh, who called a woman, who demanded that the government fund her sex-life, a slut.  Some  advertisers left, and wanted to come back, when their business suffered.  And, now, we see the final results of that boycott…his ratings are up!  Fire Andrea Mitchell has the video… well, maybe we should have lefties boycott the CH 2.0? I could use the extra […]

In Times of Crisis, People Turn on the News, and Avoid MSNBC

When something terrible happens, people turn to the news.  But, it appears that MSNBC is not the place to which to turn.  During last week’s Boston Marathon Bombing crisis.  People turned to the news.  However, it was FOX, and to a lesser degree, CNN, that viewers trusted.  MSNBC was not in the equation.  Newsbusters has more… shared data Friday (through Thursday): 4-DAY AVERAGE TOTAL DAY FNC: 1,647,000 total viewers (421,000 in the demo) CNN: 1,048,000 total viewers (403,000 in the demo) MSNBC: 515,000 total viewers (162,000 in the demo)   4-DAY AVERAGE PRIMETIME FNC: 2,783,000 total viewers (682,000 in […]

Americans Vote with their Remotes: Piers Morgan’s Ratings in the Tank

It seems that Piers Morgan’s ratings are in the tank.  I guess all that gun grabber stuff isn’t exactly resonating with the viewers (or lack thereof).  Weasel Zippers has more… Via TV By The Numbers: The February 28th episode of Piers Morgan Tonight, which featured an exclusive interview with Gus Searcy, the mentor of Jodi Arias suffered a yearly low in the key 25-54 demographic with only 87,000 viewers. The show is down 27% in total viewers and 38% in the demo from its debut in Jan. 17th, 2011. Piers Morgan Tonight also had the lowest demo in its time slot and […]

Current TV up for Sale: Anyone Want to Buy Yet Another Failed Liberal News Outlet?

In a completely shocking and utter unpredictable turn of events, it appears that Current TV, Al Gore’s attempt at a news network propaganda outlet, hasn’t worked out so well, and is now up for sale.  For the rest of the sad news, here is more from Michelle Malkin. Current TV may soon beon the market for any buyer looking to further validate Thomas Tusser: Current TV, the ratings-challenged cable network started by former Vice President Al Gore, has put itself up for sale, The Post has learned. “Current has been approached many times by media companies interested in acquiring our company,” CEO Joel Hyatt […]

MSM DeathWatch: CNN Continues to Tank, Piers Morgan Hit the Hardest

The biased media continues to sink like a stone, with CNN leading the way into the dustbin of pseudo-journalistic history.  NewsBusters has the latest failure related details… On Tuesday, May 16, CNN did something that hadn’t happened to the network since 1997: The 9 p.m. edition of Piers Morgan Tonight drew an audience of only 39,000 viewers in the important 25-54 age demographic. These numbers come as a huge blow to the host, liberal, former tabloid editor Piers Morgan. According to a story by Alex Weprin for the TVNewser,com Website, that day was “a typical boring Tuesday, with little earth-shattering news to drive TV viewers […]

Current TV to be Dropped by Time Warner Due to Low Ratings?

Our lefty friends are having a rough month.  The “war on women” meme fell flat.  The economy continues to stagnate, and gas prices continue to creep upward.  And like a tired fighter, the administration keeps trying to throw clumsy hay-makers, and most often miss their opposition.  One of the recent piles of fail involves Keith Olberamnn and Current TV.  Olbermann was fired by the network for refusing to play nice, and I guess the smelly, talkative limo drivers were just too much for poor Keith to bear.  But, that’s not the end of the woes for Current TV, because, even though ubermoron drew some […]

A Tale of Two Stories: Lefty Media Heads Lose Ratings, Come Unhinged-Rest of the Planet Unimpressed

Ah, the left, with their smug, unwarranted self importance, create a great deal of amusement when they crash and burn.  They remind me of Shakespeare when he wrote, …a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.  How many of you guessed that I was going to write about Keith Olbermann?  Once again, it seems that Mr. Olbermann’s ego is getting the best of him.  Ace has the details… Olbermann is, again, making a spectacle of his […]

Lefty Media Deathwatch: Leftist Websites Continue to Lose Traffic

We’re all familiar with the decline of the MSM, but, the more shocking drop is in the traffic for leftist websites.  Here is more from The Daily Caller… New independent circulation numbers show a sharp decline in readership of Politico and other left-leaning news websites, an ominous trend for the suburban Virginia-based news outlet and its peers as Americans head into an election year. Recently published and publicly available Web traffic data indicates that “unique visitor” traffic to in November 2011 was 15 percent lower than in the previous month, and 31 percent lower than in November 2010. The data, from Compete, […]

MSM DeathWatch: Even in San Francisco, People Don’t Listen to Liberal Talk Radio

What does it say when a liberal talk radio station has to do a format change in San Francisco?  Well, it’s happening, and some of the fallout is hilarious.  For starters, here is some coverage from Dana Loesch, of Big Journalism… Even in a far-left city such as San Francisco no one listens to progressive talk radio. Green 960 will be replaced by a conservative talker KNEW, and KNEW’s old spot on the dial 910 AM will be relaunched as KKSF AM, another conservative talker. Both stations are owned by Clear Channel, which was obviously tired of bleeding money on the […]

MSM Death Watch: CNN, MSNBC Primetime Shows Beaten by Red Eye


If I told you that FOX News programming crushes it’s competition at MSNBC and CNN, you’d likely say, “what else is new.”  That would be a resonable response.  But, what if I told you that the FOX show at 3:00AM beats much of the prime time lineup at MSNBC and CNN?  That might be a surprise, but it is, none the less, true. Check this out from Deadline Hollywood… CNN’s 9 PM anchor Piers Morgan Tonight is regularly pummeled in the ratings by its Fox News primetime counterparts. But in October, it also got beat by Fox News’ overnight program Red Eye, which […]

Olbermann Losing Audience at a Fantastic Rate: Will he Kill Current TV?


It seems that Olbermann can’t keep an audience anywhere.  I guess that’s some douche-nozzle karma happening.  For the coverage, here is an excerpt from the NY Daily News… After debuting to promising ratings on the Current cable network in late June, Olbermann’s political commentary show posted its lowest numbers yet the week of Sept 5-11. Nielsen figures provided by industry sources also show that, based on weekly averages of the program’s performance on Current, “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” has never done better than its debut week on Al Gore‘s hard-to-find cable network. (It did come close on Aug. 30, racking up […]

MSM Death Watch: Olbermann Loses 30% of Audience in Second Week


Apparently, hyperbole, lies, and insane ranting can only take you so far…  The “Countdown” host, whose debut guest was far-left filmmaker Michael Moore, has lost nearly 30 percent of his viewers just two weeks into his new broadcast. Business Insider reports: In its second week on Al Gore’s Current TV Countdown With Keith Olbermann lost nearly 30% of its total viewers and 30% of its demo viewers, reports Deadline. “Olbermann attracted an average of 93,000 viewers in its target 25-to-54 demo, down 29% from the first week. The total audience, at 253,000, was down 28.5%.” It stands to reason Olbermann and Current executives might […]

MSNBC Continues to Disappoint in the Ratings

For the leftist propaganda mother ship known as MSNBC, things are looking pretty bleak.  Even after a change in ownership, the channel continues to lag badly behind FOX.  I found this image over at I Hate the Media, via Trending Right. Now, Comcast owns NBC, and as a private company that isn’t reliant on the government from billions in “green energy” contracts, I wonder how long they’ll tolerate such low performance? Also, while Beck is set to leave FOX in a few weeks, I would imagine that they could replace him with a potted plant and still defeat both CNN […]
