And the beat (down) goes on.

Fox News Nabs Historic Cable Ratings Victory
9/30/2014 by Michael O'Connell

No one would say the summer of 2014 suffered any shortage of breaking news.

From the crisis in Ferguson, Mo., to the cultural impact of Robin Williams' and Joan Rivers' sudden deaths and all the way up to recent round-the-clock coverage of U.S. strikes on ISIS, cable news has been heavily occupied. The last three months have been so big, Fox News Channel just clocked its first quarter with the most-watched primetime across all of cable in more than a decade — even besting USA and ESPN.

The average 1.79 million viewers between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m., Monday through Friday, gave FNC its first quarter atop the dial since the Iraq War broke out in 2003. Expanding that block by an hour, which includes Greta Van Susteren at 7 p.m., FNC was the most watched in primetime for the first time ever. And in the targeted demographic of adults 25-54, FNC was up 12 percent from the same period a year ago, with an average 313,000 viewers.

It's the last time the cable network will be compared to its previous primetime. Oct. 7 marks the one-year anniversary of FNC revamping a decade-old lineup with Megyn Kelly's move to 9 p.m. The third quarter marked Kelly's best since launch, up a significant 27 percent (year over year) in the time period previously occupied by Sean Hannity. (Hannity, who airs at 10 p.m., enjoyed a high of his own).

Bill O'Reilly remained the top performer across cable news, despite Kelly's advances, and 14 FNC shows continued to sit atop the cable news roster — while the only other network to see year-to-year improvement, CNN, saw a rather unexpected series perched atop its own rankings. Documentary series The Sixties stands as CNN's most-watched show of the quarter, edging pasting Anderson Cooper with an average 650,000 viewers — 186,000 of them in the key demo. After ratings spikes for the anchor's on-the-ground coverage of Ferguson, his show ranked as CNN's top show in the demo.

CNN's gains from the comparable quarter last year were modest, but they were still gains. Its 186,000 adults 18-49 in primetime (8-11 p.m.)  marked a 4 percent improvement and even outpaced MSNBC — now back in third place. MSNBC, still holding slight second-place edge in total viewers, was down 21 percent in the key demo compared to last year. Pulling just an average 150,000 adults 25-54 in primetime, it meant quarterly lows for Chris Hayes, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell in the key demo.

The wondrous anomaly of Shark Tank encores also continues. With the ABC reality competition in heavy off-net rotation on CBNBC, those repeats are outperforming much of cable news and ranking No. 14 in primetime where adults 25-54 are concerned — besting every telecast on MSNBC.

Third-Quarter 2014 Primetime Averages
FNC: 1,797,000 viewers, up 12 percent (313,000 adults 25-54, up 12 percent)
CNN: 555,000 viewers, up 2 percent (186,000 adults 25-54, up 4 percent)
MSNBC: 557,000 viewers, down 2 percent (150 adults 25-54, down 21 percent)
HLN: 352,000 viewers, down 4 percent (120 adults 25-54, down 12 percent)

They are all doing pretty poorly.

More people watch wrestling every week.

Monday's episode of WWE RAW, with Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella in the main event spot for the second week in a row, drew 4.048 million viewers, down 6% from last week's 4.318 million viewers.

I'm on college campuses usually once or twice per week during the football off seasons. From USC to LSU and everywhere in between. Especially Cal Berkely. They're half retarded.

You know (when you're not lying to yourself) that the dumbest Cal Berkeley student on campus can run circles around you ......starting with how to spell the word Berkeley correctly.

How's that finance degree working out? But I must say it's nice making $200hr teaching people "how to flip tires".

MSNBC Ratings Nosedive Includes Lowest Numbers Ever for Maddow
Monday, 13 Oct 2014
By Andrea Billups

Ratings at the left-leaning MSNBC cable network continue to fall, according to the New York Times, which describes the decline as "one of the deepest skids in its history."

Even the network's star, Rachel Maddow, has seen viewership drop, marking her lowest quarterly ratings since she began, the Times noted.

While Ronan Farrow's afternoon show has consistently failed to gain traction, even with much promotion, well-known programming like "Morning Joe" has also dipped, scoring its "second-lowest quarterly ratings," according to the Times.

“This has been a tough year all around,” Phil Griffin, MSNBC's president told the Times in noting his network wasn't alone in marking a tough quarter. “All three cable news channels are drawing a smaller combined audience than they were five years ago.”

Griffin also pointed to a national political weariness as pervasive gridlock in Washington has angered many across the country. “You can look at the dysfunction in Washington, the wariness about politics, the low approval ratings,” Griffin added to the Times. “That’s had an impact. But we’ve got to adjust; we’ve got to evolve.”

Ratings at competitor networks that produce similar political coverage, however, have not seen such a drop-off.

After reconfiguring its programming line-up, Fox News has shown dominance, rising to land "among the top five highest-rated networks 96 percent of the time," the Daily Caller noted, citing data from Nielsen Media Research.

Fox News's new prime time star, Megyn Kelly, has also owned her 9 p.m. time slot, averaging 2.5 million nightly viewers over the past year and rising 36 percent in total viewers over the last quarter, the Daily caller noted.

But the Associated Press noted that Fox's network dropped 29 percent over last year's ratings for the fall prime time television lineup, even as CBS, NBC and ABC had all seen fall lineup increases in prime time viewing.

Last week's ratings showed that ESPN reigned as the most popular cable network with 3.75 million prime time viewers, followed by TBS (3.12 million) the Disney Channel (1.88 million), USA (1.8 million) and Fox News  (1.69 million), the AP noted. The evening newscast leaders were ABC's "World News" followed by NBC's "Nightly News" and then "CBS Evening News."

Nobody is watching MSNBC.  Yet somehow they keep tricking a nation that is about 60% "self-identified" conservative into voting 53% to 47% for the biggest liberal in the Senate.   Twice. 

No, can't have it both ways.  If you entire party is doomed by 3 tv stations, then by golly, the majority of the population is 75 IQ that can be tricked into voting against their own core beliefs... by something that less than 1% of the nation is watching?

Either we're a majority liberal nation (even if people won't admit it)?   Or what?  You can't say MSM is dead, nobody watches, but they're swaying 10% of the population while only 1% (mostly dem base anyway) watches that drivel.

I think many people are either just dog tired of the bullshit the main outlets spew all the time, or theyre getting their news on the internet from other sources.

I know a huge chunk of the age 25-40 employees at my work all get their news online from alternative sources...... Breitbart, Huffpo, Drudgr, Blaze, RT, zerohedge, etc.

Alternative online media is where the future is at. That almost goes without saying at this point.

Rightys still will tune in to Fox and Lefties to the Comedy channel for their television news/commentary but by and large the young crowd will be going more and more directly to those very sites for their non-television reading.
