Thursday Cable Ratings: Matthews’
Obama Interview Beats Greta
at 7pm, #2 in Demo Overall

Mediaite, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/7/2013 6:32:30 AM

Chris Matthews‘ exclusive interview with President Barack Obama was #1 in the 25-54 demo at 7pm and the second highest-rated show in the demo for all of cable news, despite airing during other network’s live coverage of Nelson Mandela’s death. With 298K viewers in the demo, MSNBC’s Hardball beat Fox’s On The Record with Greta Van Susteren, which had 218K, in the 7pm time slot. The only show with more viewers in the demo than Hardball was Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, which had 405K viewers at 8pm. With 1.296M total viewers, Matthews came within 3K of Greta Van Susteren, who

`Sounds like Obama benefited from people not wanting to watch Mandela news.A presidential interview barely beating a run of the mill Greta show isn´t much to brag about.

I guess Matthews will have to interview Obama every night to keep his ratings up and so the curious can tune in to the lies of the day.

Don´t have cable so I´m not that familiar with its parameters. Why is 25-54 the "key" demo? Do they count those who stay for the whole hour or just visit a few minutes then move on? I also noticed the chart of all viewers and combined, the other shows barely equal two thirds the total of Fox News viewers.
This is all on top of viewing any numbers that apply to the Liar-in-Chief with a good deal of skepticism.

You know how people form a "gaper block" while driving their cars when they pass an accident? I am guessing that many viewers tuned in for the gaper factor, to watch Matthews gush and to watch Obama lie.

Obama´s TV appearances and TV pressers usually bomb, ratings-wise. So the only way to explain this high rating is to watch Matthews don his kneepads, seeing as how watching Obama´s face is sheer gaggery.

I remember when Boring Katie Curick started her talk show. She put Rush Limbaugh on as one of her first interviews and her ratings soared. After that, they started falling and now she is gone. After everyone had already heard all about Mandela, watching another hour of babble about him or watching Chrissy slobber over Obama was an easy pick. Everyone was interested in how soft the questions would be and how long Obama´s lies would be. Didn´t take long to find out.

The coverage for Mandela was and is ridiculously inappropriate. It´s another indication of political correctness and the liberal bias of the media on full display.

Putting aside the complexion of Mandela´s skin, the coverage is so over the top considering the ultimate merits of the man, mixed as they are.

I do not recall such news coverage for the death of Margaret Thatcher, who I would argue was one of the top 5 leaders of the 20th century that favored and fought for individual liberty and human rights around the world. Thatcher was Reagan´s greatest ally in finishing off the Soviet Union and freeing hundreds of millions from Obama-like communism.

Mandela was the leader in his younger days of the African National Congress, a militant communist group allied with many nefarious nations and leaders dedicated to toppling nascent African democracies using terrorist tactics. Mandela only stopped being the scourge of Africa when he got jailed. Jailed for bombing soft targets and killing innocents. Thirty years in jail and juxtaposed against the racist apartheid policy does not clear the man of heinous acts chosen by his free will.

Very misleading headline. The full story adds as an afterthought that Greta beat Chrissie overall. The 25-54 demo, in my opinion, is highly overrated. And the millennials still hate him.

#4 asked, "Why is 25-54 the "key" demo?"

The answer is that advertisers want shows that have large viewership in that age group. People younger than 25 don´t have any money. People older than 25 aren´t swayed by advertising.

Did Chrissy tell him he is pregnant, and does he know that Obama would want to abort their love child? I simply must know!

Lyndhurst, Ohio -Christina Lunka appeared nervous and excited as she sat in the Chinese herbal therapy center recently opened by the Cleveland Clinic. The 49-year-old had been to many doctors seeking help for ongoing issues that included joint pain and digestive problems. Now the Kirtland, Ohio, resident was hoping to find relief through herbal remedies. "Do you have something for inflammation?" Ms. Lunka asked herbalist Galina Roofener during a one-hour consultation. "Absolutely," responded Ms. Roofener. "This is for pain, for digestion, for inflammation, all of the above," she said, handing Ms. Lunka a bottle with capsules of an herbal combination called

First lady Michelle Obama told “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” co-hosts Michael Strahan and Kelly Ripa that Sundays for the first family have become more about napping, downtime and family time than about church or godly worship. She made the comments in response to a question from the co-hosts during the Easter Egg Roll at the White House, when they asked for a description of a typical Obama family Sunday, Breitbart reported. Mrs. Obama said: “We try to go to church as much as possible, but when the kids get older, you know, Sunday is some kind of practice, rehearsal, birthday

Portland, Ore., is a nice place to live. Nothing much happens there, and that’s its charm. Oregon is perhaps the most politically correct of the 50 states, shading even Massachusetts, and Reservoir 5 of the Portland water system is a monument to the work of the weenie bureaucrat. Portland is so straight-laced, in fact, that the daily newspaper refuses to identify the Washington Redskins as the Redskins, lest it offend the native redskins. Newspapers elsewhere, with no sensitivity, report bad news as well as the good — fires, floods, riots and even wars. Sensitivity reigns unchallenged on the banks of

The Garden State has the country´s highest percentage of foreclosures among mortgaged homes -- and that´s just the beginning. Early this year, banking and real-estate analysts concluded that New Jersey had achieved a dubious distinction, passing Florida to become the state with the highest percentage of foreclosure among mortgaged homes, 6.2 percent as calculated by CoreLogic, a leader in real-estate analytics. (That percentage was actually an improvement from a year earlier.) Meanwhile, Florida’s rate dropped to 6 percent from 10.1 percent in 2012, and housing markets around the country are recovering far faster from the Great Recession. New Jersey also

The best feast ever? A Florida fisherman caught a record-setting 805-pound shark earlier this month, and then celebrated by barbecuing the 11-foot mako and devouring it with friends. "It was really good," Joey Polk told the Daily News on Monday. "It´s not real fishy. It does not have a real gamy, fishy taste." Polk caught the mako off the Florida Panhandle with the help of two cousins. The feat is recognized by the International Land-Based Shark Fishing Association as the largest mako catch ever, he said.

The Supreme Court has upheld a ban on using race in admissions to Michigan´s public university. The court was divided on the case, which overturns a 6th Circuit Court decision. The opinion, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy, says the case is not about race admissions policies but about whether voters in a state can choose to prohibit consideration of racial preferences. "The plurality opinion stresses that the case is not about the constitutionality or the merits of race conscious admission policies in higher education. Rather, the question concerns whether and in what manner voters in a state may chose to

FREEHOLD — A family is suing a New Jersey school district, contending that the phrase "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance is discriminatory toward atheist children. The lawsuit against the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District was filed in state court last month and announced Monday by the American Humanist Association. The group says the phrase, added in 1954, "marginalizes atheist and humanist kids as something less than ideal patriots." The anonymous plaintiffs say those two words violate the state constitution. But school district lawyer David Rubin says the district is merely following a state law that requires schools to have

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
