Skip to comments.MSNBC Collapses to Fourth Place: Loses 12% of Viewers
Posted on 07/30/2013 7:05:58 PM PDT by Nachum
This year's bad news for MSNBC has only gotten worse. The "Lean Forward" network has struggled in the ratings since the Boston Marathon bombings exposed the network's glaring weakness when it comes to news gathering. MSNBC had hoped to turn that around by going all-in on with the Zimmerman, but it didn't. Compared to last year in July, MSNBC was down -12% in total viewers and -4% in the 25-54 demo.
"Morning Joe" lost -4% of its viewers, -8% in the 25 to 54 demo. Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O'Donnell all took huge hits over last year. Hayes is down -27%, O'Donnell's down -29%, and Maddow slid -19% in total viewers. The numbers were not much better in the 25-54 demo.

They will be competing with CURRENT-TV ... oops - they are going off air on Aug 30 in favor of Al Jazeera.... I mean the new PIVOT-TV
%12 of viewers? You mean they actually had viewers?
” Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O’Donnell “
The entire contingent of idiots should be in strait jackets but keep it up guys. Let’s go for last place.
4th? I wasn’t even aware there are four.
Weren’t they always in 4th place?
Behind CNN? CNN can’t even spell news!
My math skills are not the best in the world so maybe someone can tell me what a 12 percent loss of viewership means when they only had 5 viewers to begin with
I'm pretty sure this is a mathematical impossibility, unless one of them lost a leg.
Actually, they are now behind CNN twice - behind regular CNN and CNN Headline News.
It means one of the five is only partly watching half the time.

What about Al Sharpie? What were his ratings?
And what about Chris Matthews?

Lucky for me, I can not even get PMSNBC or Commie News Network. I do get FOX and Aljazera via my G-Sat.
That was my understanding also.
They’ve lost 12% of their viewership? They’d better do something or the other 88 people might leave, too.
1. Lean Forward
2. Topple Over
3. Be sold to the chinese
Ads are priced and sold based on audience. The per viewer aymentspayments that they get from cable operators won’t even keep the lights on. It’s ad supported television.
Will the last one watching MSNBC please turn off the TV.
Rush the other day said that is not exactly true. Said liberal women are now mostly in charge of ad buys. Said they care more about ideology than eyeballs.
That’s what he said. I don’t know.
It must have been those tampon earrings one of the host’s was wearing.
“%12 of viewers? You mean they actually had viewers?”
12% may sound like a big drop, but 12% of not very much is, well, much less than not very much.
‘Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O’Donnell’’< Moe, Larry and Curly.
Geeeez, if they ‘Lean Forward’ much more, they will fall head first down the toilet bowl.
So goes MSNBC..., so goes Obama’s rank rankings.
You know your show is in trouble when you have to break out the “stunts”. That woman is miserable. Such an air of “I’m so very, very intelligent, it’s a burden.”
And it looks like she’s going bald...gives me the creeps.
Only thing worse is Madcow’s constant sneer and morphing into the guy from the program E.R. in front of our eyes.
Now that a Democrat activist has been named producer of CNN’s new version of ‘Crossfire’, it’s clear that MSNBC will also have to split their tiny pie of scumbag Democrat viewers with CNN as well.
Why are viewers leaving?
When you have heard “Conservatives Suck” and “Bush Did It” a million times from lesbians, racists, girly men, insane foreigners and Obama idolizers it gets old.
You mean, they were ahead of someone before?
Lost 12% of viewers? From that I would infer that viewership dropped from eight to seven.
What’s a MSNBC???
I guess the viewers are tiring of faux racist rants 24/7.
This is just a move (downward) to solidify their 4th place standing.
