    Like two, three million out of 300 million?

      "Millions" -- well that was hyperbole, I guess.

      But it depends I guess on the other demographic blocks counts,

      and whether or not, I add up viewers cumulatively, nite over nite?

      Cable news ratings, March 3, 2011:

      • MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, without the benefit of a buzz-booster like Charlie Sheen, quietly jumped to the elite levels of cable news ratings, outperforming everyone at CNN and MSNBC, and even beating Fox’s Glenn Beck. Maddow hit 452,000 viewers 25-54, easily dominating CNN’s Piers Morgan, who had 208,000. Maddow, who was without any Charlie Sheen-like celebrity guest, even came close to Fox’s Sean Hannity, who won the time period with 561,000.

      I would imagine the viewership varies, day over day.


      Look I don't like what GE does either, in some branches of its corporate empire,

      But I'm glad for the alternate views MSNBC presents.

      And if I'm not mistaken, it's now Comcast, who is their Corporate shadow, not GE.

        When Scarborough gets 3 hours in the morning, and they treated Keith Olbermann like they did, years later after Phil Donohue was mistreated, nah, I won't watch MSNBC.

        First of all, unless people pay for that cable tier, they are not able to view it.  And in some areas, people have to pay extra for MSNBC, even though Fox is included.

        I don't think it's a great model to circumvent the asinine "local" news, that really isn't news but mostly banter and soundbites that touch on news.

        There are no good answers until the media gets out of bed with the politicians, figuratively speaking.

          his show beats the Scarborough prattle, by a mile.


          maybe Chris can fill in for Amy, on her days off.
