Media Bistro ^ | 8/27/2013 | Alex Weprin

Posted on 08/28/2013 6:39:00 AM PDT by Night Hides Not

MSNBC continued its rough 2013 in the ratings, continuing to lose significant audience from 2012. The problems were particularly prevalent in primetime, with some shows losing close to -50% of viewer

“Morning Joe” was down -9% in total viewers and -17% in the A25-54 demographic compared to the same month last year, which actually was a better result than many of the programs that came later in the day.
In primetime, “The Rachel Maddow Show” posted all-time low ratings in total and demo viewers, down -43% and -47%, respectively. “The Last Word” posted a low in total viewers, losing -40% of its total viewer audience and -42% of its demo audience. at 8 PM, “All in” was down -48% and -42% in total and demo viewers, respectively, placing behind CNN for the hour.

Why do supposedly astute businesses advertise on this lousy channel that none but the unemployed university Leftists living in their parent’s basements are watching? (The other dependent classes have soaps, BET and MTV to watch, showing some taste when they reject paste-faced White feminists like Mika and Maddow.)

I guess their core viewers are moving over to Al Jazeera, where they feel more at home...the further left, the better.

Doesn’t matter what MSNBC’s ratings are, IT SERVES A PURPOSE. In the largely-gay NBC “Family”, it could lose a billion dollars, and they would still run with it.

It coordinates the most radical of the most radical for the Socialist Democrats and Media Matters/OFA, and gets the administration message out.

OMG! Cannot conservatives and the R party see the opportunity that is opening up in America? The left is watching popular appeal slip away and millions more Americans are looking for some kind of hope and way out of the dismal future looming before them. Millions of Americans and people in other countries are recognizing that the socialists in the US have no clothes. This is the time to coalesce the people with a common sense conservative and positive message. This is the time for a positive leader to hammer the socialists and reassure Americans and people elsewhere that regular Americans have not all lost their sanity and that a brighter future is coming. Let’s spread that message now.

Embarassing though it is, The fools of the GOPe are running toward the left, resigned to a “demographic shift” and promising a future like Argentina’s past. When they have finally purged themselves of common sense conservatism, and arrive at their socialist destination, nobody will be home. Joke’s on them.

“Why do supposedly astute businesses advertise on this lousy channel”

I’m sure it is sold as part of a total NBC advertising package.

Also, if you dared to single out MSNBC as someone you refuse to advertise on, the fascists come after you. It’s a cheap way to keep the radicals off your back for a large company. It’s how you do business under fascism, in the Democrat Vampire Economy.

Morning Joke should just give up on the 5% of the show where he attempts (but fails at) some serious commentary and just convert that segment to comedy like the other 95%.

True...Sharpton's ratings could go to zero, and the suits won't care.

In other news, the Houston Astros are the most profitable team in baseball.

It reminds me of the Iraqi war. Hollywood would produce an anti-war film, lose millions, and then proceed to roll out yet another...

Morning Joe has turned into a male giggle show. Matthews invites people but won’t listen to them. The biased views on the Zimmerman case did them in. People saw the case themselves and realized that MSNBC wanted them to see something else.

Well put...it's painful to watch. Joe is no longer capable of being serious for more than a couple of minutes. He may think he's endearing, but I find his behavior annoying.

Don't get me started on Mika...

I guess the all day coverage of the celebration of MLK’s March on Washington, 50th annivesary did zilch for the MSNBC viewership ratings. The whole charade on Saturday was a failure both on site and on MSNBC TV!!! American Blacks adrift at sea!!! Dr. King, great man and icon that he was....must be appalled and crying in his grave at the los life that pass for leaders of the American Black communities!!!

Today’s flim/flam show will also fail!!!!
