MSNBC hits number one in cable news ratings while Fox News flirts with the number three spot.

Courtesy of Variety:  

For the first time in its history, MSNBC ranked number one in both total viewers and the key adults 25-54 demographic during primetime for a full week among the big three cable news networks, according to Nielsen data. 

For the week of May 15, MSNBC averaged 2.44 million viewers with 611,000 in the key demo from 8 p.m.-11 p.m., beating out CNN and Fox News in both measures. In total day viewership for the week, CNN has ranked number one in cable news among adults 25-54 for six straight days (May 14-19), marking the network’s longest winning streak in that measure in six years. Fox News finished first in total viewers with 1.5 million and second in the demo with 321,000. MSNBC was second in total viewers with 1.2 million total viewers and third in the demo with 281,000. CNN finished third in total viewers with 1.05 million but first in the demo with 353,000. 

In addition, Fox News ranked number three in primetime in the key demographic for five straight days with 497,000 viewers, the longest streak at number three the network has had in that measure in 17 years, since June 2000. CNN finished second in the demo with 588,000. Fox was second in total viewers, however, with 2.41 million, beating out CNN’s 1.65 million.

This is just more bad news for Fox News who was hit with three new claims of discrimination this week, as well as an op-ed by Monica Lewisnky who specifically called them out for building their reputation by trashing hers.

I really am starting to believe that we are seeing the end of Fox News.

Or at least the end of Fox News as we have known it.

Which cannot be a bad thing in my mind.

    LOL Trump landed in Brussels and learned his lesson this time.

    It took two incidents of Melania showing him up disembarking Air Force One by showing everybody she doesn't want him touching her. Today when they disembarked AF One in Brussels, Trump finally learned not to touch her. Trump kept his hands to himself. Good boy.

    Did you notice when President Trump entered his limousine at the Brussels airport, Melania basically said fuck you fat boy by standing next to the limousine and talked to some lady for a while and kept Trump waiting for her in the limo like a good little fat boy.

    MSNBC IS number one for now unless Andrew Lack who is head on NBC news and MSNBC continues doing what he's doing. He's hired Greta megan, Hugh Hewitt george will and may not re-sign Lawrence O'Donnell. He got rid of ed, al, and Alex Wagner and gave chuck Todd a daily show. Opinion is that he's letting Lawrence go to give his buddy Brian Williams that time slot. And let's not forget, trump hates Lawrence so this could be an olive branch from Lack.

      "We already knew Trump expressed admiration for Duterte’s bloody domestic battle that has killed thousands in the streets, some drug dealers, but many drug addicts and bystanders with little regard for which are which."

    CNN has been awful for so long that it's a miracle it is still on the air.

    What right-wing populism? Polls reveal that it’s liberalism that’s surging.

      "196 House Democrats felt the need to remind Donald Trump that he has to abide by the law, as he’s made threats that" “threatened to withhold the subsidy payments as a way to induce the Democrats to bargain with him.”Democrats are not in power, so they can’t hold Trump accountable the way they could if they were in charge. But they are trying to put up speed bumps at every turn when the President tries to take a dangerous turn that would HARM millions of Americans."

    Why Trump Will Never Recover from His Russia Scandal

    The Trump-Russia scandal has metastasized quickly and destructively.

    A little more than a week ago, I said on CNN and wrote on Facebook that — based on reporting I’d just completed in Washington DC — it was clear that the controversy surrounding Russian contacts with advisers to President Donald J. Trump and his campaign team was about to become much more serious and much more directly focused on the president himself, and would have deeply troubling consequences for our democracy.

    The revelations since then have confirmed all of that, and will be remembered as the point when an extraordinary but perhaps still manageable political embarrassment for the Trump administration mushroomed into the most serious controversy to engulf a presidency since Watergate.
