It appears that Rachel Maddow is currently the queen of cable news.

Courtesy of Yahoo News:

MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” finished the Week of March 27 as the most-watched show in cable news among the key demographic of adults age 25-54. 

“The Rachel Maddow Show” averaged 2.70 million total viewers and 624,000 viewers among the demo last week, while O’Reilly averaged 2.69 million total viewers and 537,000 in the demo. Maddow has now beaten Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” for three straight weeks, as the MSNBC host continues to gain popularity. 

Maddow has been on fire and has now topped O’Reilly every week since she revealed President Trump’s 2005 tax return on March 14. Typically, O’Reilly has the No. 1 show among all of cable news on a regular basis.

And people thought that Trump tax return show was a flop. Hah!

And lets face it if O'Reilly continues to lose advertisers at the current pace he might no longer be on cable news for Rachel to compete against.

Gee, wouldn't that be just a non-terrible thing to happen?

P.S. This is for all of those Maddow haters out there. Sucks to be you.

  3. At age 44 (and 6 days) Rachel is likely to be around for quite a while yet.

    Great news! Rachel Maddow is THE show I rarely miss on cable (MSNBC) Monday through Friday evenings.

    She's factual, honest, current and has a great sense of humor (albeit things aren't funny today w/Trump at the helm!).

    Love the fact she is beating O'Reilly! Yea!!! You go girl and we'll keep watching!

      Nope. Answers.
      Palins have illegitimate children, we have an illegitimate president, and Gorsuch is an illegitimate justice.
      Political terms are temporary and there are more aging SCOTUS justices. It will be a lot harder for the few elected minority repubs to get a justice confirmed.

    During a recent interview with Democracy Now, Noam Chomsky demonstrated what everyone with a clear head and capacity for critical thought should already know. Just because you have a strong dislike for Donald Trump, doesn’t mean you latch on like a lunatic to every nonsensical Russia conspiracy theory because you’re still crying about Hillary’s loss.

    Rachel gives info that no one else does. Her intro is ALWAYS unique and educational, especially when you told us about some of the last actions of our wonderful Obama and what they meant and how important they were.

    I record her and Chris and Lawrence. Rachel no doubt has an incredible staff BUT she is a REAL journalist!

    CNN has so many yelling Rethugs I stopped them long ago. The hosts cannot maintain control of the program and it is impossible to hear the sentences when they yell over each other.

    I like that Rachel has significantly informed and credible guests. Acceptable demeanor on her program or Lawrence or Chris' is not an issue.

    Joy Reid has Pastor Barbour on frequently on the wwekends and I wish him the best. He is a real go-getter and so well-informed. I record her Saturdays and Sundays and her viewership has only grown for about the past 20 weeks or so.

    Thank you Keith Olbermann for getting Rachel for us. Best move ever!

    Donald Trump's Big Heart For Kids? Don't Believe It!

    ... And as Digby called out, where is Trump's big fuck*ng heart when it comes to Syrian refugees, including woman and children from getting a safe haven in America?

    One man said he lived in Greenwich, Connecticut, where Mr Trump has a home, and there were plans to relocate Syrian refugee families there.

    He asked Mr Trump if he could "look children aged five, eight, ten, in the face and tell them they can't go to school here".
    Mr Trump did not hesitate and said he could, which brought applause from the crowd.
    He said: "I can look in their faces and say 'You can't come'. I'll look them in the face.
    "Look, we don't know where their parents come from. Their parents should always stay with them, that's very important, but we don't know where the parents come from, they have no documentation. They may be Isil, they may be Isil-related. It could be a Trojan horse. If two per cent of those people are bad the trouble is unbelievable."

    Mr Trump added: "I have a bigger heart than anybody in this room. What we do is take an area, or areas, of Syria and build safe zones."

    Trump then went off on a tangent about cellphones.

    Where the hell did they get the cellphones? Who the hell pays the bill? Who's paying the bill for the cellphone? And you see little things like that. Does that make any sense, OK? But you look at it and you say, "We have enough problems."

    Trump's town hall (above video) took place in New Hampshire, February 8th, 2016. Donald made it seem like if Saudi Arabia paid us shakedown money, he might change his mind on rescuing the "Syrian children."

    "We all have hearts he said, but show him the money.

      Sure - he has a 'big' heart, but it is because of his diet! Suspect he is on medication for high blood pressure and high cholesterol for an 'enlarged' heart and clogged arteries!

      He has the look of being very unhealthy and heart attack or stroke prone! Just how soon will one of those things occur, I wonder?

    The chemical bombing is real and was something that has been going on. A terrible situation.


    Do you think Putin is taking advantage of the chemical killings and somehow told Trump to go ahead and attack Syria so Russia can act like their mad at Trump in hopes that the intelligence and America will stop thinking Russia and Trump were in cahoots. Putin is former KGB and I wouldn't put anythibg past him.

    Now Trump looks like he's going against Russia's interests but it just a means to distract America.

      I hate people too as we as a species are inherently bad. Take solace in knowing that while the dinosaurs had a nearly 200 million year planetary dominance and sharks have been around for even longer, that we humans, due to our overpopulation that breeds disease, famine and war, won't even last as a species for another 1000 years.

      Earth will be fine, other species will be fine and as a matter of fact many will thrive in our absence, but us, no way can we continue past another millennium, if that.

    I just don't have time to watch any news but I do read what she has to say on her programs and she does seem to be on top of her game. It takes a full 5 hours each night just to get through the TiVo backup that we have going on so thank goodness for the internet and not having to dedicate entertainment time to watching news, but if I did have time to watch anyone she'd be my go to source.
