MSNBC Ratings Take A Death Dive As Network Sees Worst Quarter Since 2007

MSNBC ratings drop to all time low


Here's a news story about the news, the liberal news, that is. Maybe someday before they go completely bankrupt and lose every last viewer, the ultra liberal cable network MSNBC will fire some of their goofball show hosts like Chris Matthews, Lawrence O'Donnel and Rachel Maddow and start reporting real news. They might want to do that real soon since their ratings are plummeting and MSNBC has now seen its worst quarter in viewership since 2007.

With Chris Matthews lunatic rantings that Obama has never done anything wrong in his life, Lawrence O'Donnell challenging Mitt Romney's son to a fist fight and Melissa Harris-Perry's callous disregard for human life, viewers have had about enough and are leaving the cable network in droves. MSNBC is down a staggering 16% in viewers since the 2nd quarter of 2012.

And as for liberals who berate Fox News, they have more than 3 times the viewers in primtime hours that MSNBC does. We will let that speak for itself.

Two quarters into its rebrand under Jeff Zucker, there’s good news and bad news for CNN. Nielsen Media Research has the cable news network rising to top MSNBC for a rare second-place finish behind Fox News Channel during the second quarter, but CNN ended the first half of the year with June viewership dipping to a monthly low not seen in nearly a year.

Reclaiming the runner-up slot from MSNBC for the first time since 2010, CNN’s quarterly returns were up from the first quarter and up dramatically from last June’s 21-year lows. In total viewership, the network was up year-over-year by equal measures in both total day and primetime, while its demo showing improved most in primetime. But after the major breaking news events — the Boston Marathon bombing, Oklahoma tornadoes, the Jodi Arias trial — had passed, June saw the network slip to its lowest viewership (total day and primetime) since last August, before Zucker took the helm. [...]

MSNBC delivered its worst quarterly primetime showing among total viewers and adults 25-54 since 2007. The cable network suffered dips as other networks benefited from the quarter’s bigger news stories. MSNBC’s primetime returns in total viewers (576,000) and the key demo (191,000) were at lows not seen since the fourth and second quarters of 2007, respectively. The network did manage to improve month-to-month from it lows in May, when it fell below perennial fourth-place newser HLN.
