Posted on 05/30/2013 3:17:28 AM PDT by lbryce
MSNBC host Rachel Maddows May ratings were her worst monthly showing since The Rachel Maddow Show debuted in 2008, and the liberal network suffered double-digit drops overall in primetime viewership (20 percent) and the 25-54 demographic (19 percent) from last May, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Partly to blame for Maddows drop are the continuing woes of All In with Chris Hayes, which began in April to replace Ed Schultz and has been a ratings flop. Maddow even finished behind perennially struggling Piers Morgan:
The soft start for All In With Chris Hayes has not helped. Hayes, down 32 percent in total viewers from The Ed Show last May, has offered a poor lead-in for MSNBCs primetime flagship The Rachel Maddow Show at 9 p.m.. The show delivered its lowest-rated month since it debuted in Sept. 2008 (717,000 total viewers) and its second-lowest with adults 25-54 (210,000). Maddow was topped by typical time slot victor Sean Hannity and, in a rare feat, CNNs Piers Morgan.
Winner FNC, posting modest year-to-year losses in the key demo, was still number one across all of cable in both primetime and total day. Heavily covering White House woes like the Benghazi hearings, the network averaged 1,246,000 daily viewers (up 24 percent) and 236,000 adults 25-54 (down 5 percent) for the full day. Primetime saw 17 percent growth with 1,973,000 total viewers and a 6 percent dip with 308,000 in 25-54.
CNN is in significantly better shape than it was last May when it hit 20-year lows. The networks year-to-year growth brought in a third place 465,000 total viewers for total day and a second place 660,000 total viewers in primetime, growth of 61 and 70 percent. CNNs demo jumps were more considerable, rising 92 percent to 161,000 adults 25-54 in total day and 97 percent to 225,000 adults 25-54 in primetime.
Doing her best Al Gore impressions, facial tics, jokes.
In "If Al Gore Was A D*ke Look Alike Contest, the Bikini competition is replaced With a competitive match-up that highlights the most attractive,fundamental aspect of what it means to be in the sisterhood of Lesbos, strength, muscularity, manliness, and is known to be Al Gore's favorite part of the contest, specifically requested by him to the organizers,one that underscores his concern for the planet but is really more about his mystery panic attacks he is forced to endure whenever he gets within fifty miles of any carbon elated substance. Al Gore, tobacco farmer before the political epiphany came to the fore with a calling to enter politics soon after being trampled by the head of cattle on his Daddy's farm.
And so, the manure-haul competition was born, one that provides so many aspects that have come to symbolize Al's life, farming, manure, especially dried bovine manure, represents values that drive his Global empire regarding meteorological prognostication.
In 2002, 2004, Miss Maddow managed to haul by hand third highest amount of manure that indeed demonstrated her Sapphic qualities so attractive to fellow sisters defining her muscularity, strength and manliness throughout D*ke-dom.
Here we see Rachel as presenter at D*ke-a-thon 2009, to know her as a woman who owns the world with everything that makes for the perfect woman. Looks, charm, brains, eloquence and as we can see for ourselves her incredible fashion taste that has earned her the title of Queen Fairy of the couture world
And so, now, the entire left wing, liberal constituency in the aftermath of her show's most recent poor ratings numbers are all waiting with the greatest anticipation, baited breath hoping against hope that the Newscaster Hero for the misbegotten liberal, left-wing, gay downtrodden, will be safe once again and all will be all right with the world as maybe just maybe their Prodigal Son, The one who was fired for their sins, Psycho-Sociopath Moonbattery legend will once again rule over last place among news channels to return to his rightful place, Keith Olbermann return with the same old personality disorder, anda new slogan, "Will Never Be Worse than Madcow"
“Maddow Suffers Lowest Ratings Since Show Debut”
Put her out of her misery...
Or is it that low ratings means they’re doing something right over there at (P)MSNBC?
What/who is Madddow?
Y’know, if the other 99.99999999% of the channels weren’t spewing the same ultraleftist moonbat horse$hit, the Mentally-Sick-Nothing-But-Crap network might get higher ratings. If they fired all their malignant narcissist poo-flingers and hired Conservatives to anchor their shows, their ratings would go through the roof. But hey, that kind of diversity is for suckers, right ? Keep heading to the bottom, kooks. We’re laughing at you, not with you.
"At MSDNC, we obama like it is 1999."
to obama (verb): to lie, to cheat, to use fraud shamelessly to defeat justice, truth, and happiness.
The beauty here is MSDNC management KNOWS why their ratings are in freefall...but they absolutely cannot do what they need to without their remaining viewers spazzing out. They are all in for the lib cause and that cause has resulted in mass unemployment/higher taxes et all for their viewers, who believed the line that evil Republicans would be punished by footing the bill for their entitled lifestyles.
The management will go further left and evermore shrill, causing more people to go bye bye and their ad dollars to vanish.
When even the fully communist NYT is making noises against Black Jesus, MSNBC is in deep trouble from every angle.
Bovine spongiform encephalopathy.
My dog had a collar like that once. It’s purpose was to keep her from licking where she shouldn’t. I wonder if that collar serves a similar purpose.
Keeps her AKC pedigree locked up in her bank vault.
NEVER forget that MSDNC’s owner paid NO TAXES.
Hmmmmmm. Wonder why? Treason and prepaid election fraud.
And very smart. Too bad she has wasted her intelligence.
I suspect that her/his/its? viewership is the highest in places like MA and NY.
If they had just a plain vanilla news segment at 6PM, they might attract regular viewers back. But everything on MSNBC is slanted political news. On a rare occasion, they might cover a boat sinking, or a tornado, or some hurricane....but it’s right back the next day to slanted political talk. A guy....even a regular democrat....can only stand so much.
Uhhhh, the real word is "bated breath", short from "abated".
Although, in Maddow's case....
Before she became a man.
Thanks for the correction. I’m actually a stickler for spelling and grammar but in this case I actually forgot the correct spelling. Thanks again.
MAD COW will do that to you.
I can see her demon even in this early picture.
I almost feel sorry for the guy. Almost.
