Phil Griffin, president of MSNBC, says there's something fishy about Tuesday's ratings for the Fox News Channel, which were up significantly from a day earlier when Fox News debuted its new schedule. And he wants an investigation. ...
At 9 p.m. on Monday, MSNBC's The Rachel Maddow Show beat Fox News' new The Kelly File, hosted by Megyn Kelly, by a slim 10,000 viewers in the key demo.
By Tuesday, though, Fox News was back to its dominant self, with 573,000 in the key demo compared with 261,000 for MSNBC between the hours of 8 p.m. and 11 p.m.
Perhaps most dramatically, Kelly's narrow loss to Rachel Maddow from a night earlier was significantly reversed, with Kelly drawing an audience of 623,000 in the key demo compared with Maddow's 291,000.
Nielsen has not yet responded to Griffin's remarks.
On Wednesday, Kelly beat Maddow 384,000 to 299,000 in the key demo, with CNN's Piers Morgan Live at 117,000. And on Thursday, Kelly beat Maddow 376,000 to 288,000, with Morgan at 157,000.
Have you ever watched MSNBC?
In other news, The Crips have demanded a review of the ethical business practices of The Bloods.
And people wonder why our country is BROKEN. Good grief, we have so many bigger issues to discuss than this. Embarrassing and pathetic.
Sour grapes. Megan Kelly had an audience three times better than Rachel Maddow. MSNBC just can't accept that fact. So MSNBC wants an investigation into the ratings. My response ... look at the crap Maddow puts out and then look at the professionalism of Megan Kelly. THAT is why Kellys show does so much better. No mystery.
I like Maddow. She is clearly biased, but she does tackle some really good topics and it seems that she is much more factual than Kelly.
Kelly is just eye candy for middle-aged white males that watch the news because there is no football game on and they are too overweight to do kegstands anymore.edit on 12-10-2013 by sheepslayer247 because: (no reason given)
Griffin's assertion that Fox News did "election night" numbers on Tuesday may have been hyperbole, considering on Tuesday Fox News had 2.65 million in primetime and 573,000 in the key demo, while on the night of the presidential election Fox News had 7.5 million viewers with 3 million from the key demo, according the Nielsen.
