Wednesday’s numbers are out. Once again Greta beat O’Reilly but this time O’Reilly was hosting and not a sub. FOX has been advertising on TV the other day that their numbers for the Presidential address beat all the other networks combined. Well yesterday they beat all the cable news networks combined in Total Day, Prime Time, and their corresponding P 25-54 demos.
MSNBC had a really bad day. They came in 5th place behind Headline News and CNBC in Total Day, Total Day P 25-54, and Prime Time P 25-54. Ouch. Primetime was the only thing that kept MSNBC completely out of the basement. Countdown pulled in really good numbers in total viewers but their P 25-54 numbers lagged badly in 5th (behind the eBay special on CNBC which also beat Paula Zahn Now’s P 25-54 numbers). Scarborough Country pulled down an impressive 417,000 Total Viewers. Where did everybody come from? And why?
