FOX Sweeps DC Market Sunday Show Ratings for 7.27.14

According to Nielsen Media Research in the DC market on Sunday, July 27th, “FOX News Sunday” moderated by Chris Wallace was the most-watched Sunday show in the DC market in households, total viewers and the A25-54 demo.

FOX posted its second highest total viewership ever in the market with 107,000 total viewers (the highest was Feb. 7, 2010 when Wallace interviewed Sarah Palin with 132,000 in P2+). July 27 was also the first time FOX bested NBC in 7 years, and second time ever. The ratings come days after reports that David Gregory‘s time as “Meet the Press” host is coming to an end.

In the key A25-54 demo, FOX led with 41,000 viewers in the DC market, followed by ABC’s “This Week” with 36,000 and NBC’s “Meet the Press” with 33,000. In total households following FOX at 64,000 was NBC with 53,000 and CBS with 36,000.

This past Sunday, both FOX and NBC had interviews with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. ABC hosted Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX). Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright joined CBS’s “Face the Nation.” Henry Cisneros, former United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, was on “Al Punto.” Highlight’s from the day’s programing here.

Sarah Palin Launches Channel to Explore ‘Important issues facing the nation’

Sarah Palin over the weekend announced a new project she’s launching – “The Sarah Palin Channel” – to explore “important issues facing the nation,” part of the TAPP network.

“I want to talk directly to you on our channel, on my terms — and no need to please the powers that be,” she explains in a video promo for the channel. “Together, we’ll go beyond the sound bites and cut through the media’s politically correct filter.”

Most of the channel is members only, at the rate of $9.95 a month or $99.95 for a year. In the site’s FAQ’s under ‘Is the Channel members only?’ it answers: “Yes, we have launched our video channel looking for the support of our community through subscriptions. We also feel that the community would feel more secure knowing everyone watching, uploading videos, and participating in the discussions and video chats was a contributing member and not anonymous,” aka it’s viewer funded but we’ll act like having people pay $10 a month via credit card actually makes it “feel more secure.”

Sarah Palin Pens Support for Impeachment of President Obama

Sarah Palin earlier today tweeted out a link to piece she wrote for Breitbart News supporting the impeachment of President Barack Obama for his position on the border crisis.

“It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment,” wrote the former Vice Presidential candidate. “The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”

Sarah Palin Talks Hard Choices, Political Talk Show with The Hollywood Reporter

OrVIIAlaThe Hollywood Reporter’s Marisa Guthrie this morning published a Q&A with Sarah Palin after the Sportsman Channel ordered a second season of her namesake show “Amazing America with Sarah Palin.”

The former Vice Presidential candidate answered questions about the series, which explores “what makes America amazing,” as well as some questions more focused ‘inside the Beltway.’

On whether she’d ever host her own television, radio, or Internet political talk show, Palin didn’t object.

“Maybe. But the politics would have to be interspersed with a whole lot of fun and real life and inspiration showcasing American work ethic, because those topics are all pretty much the antithesis of today’s politics, which I find incorrigibly disastrous!” She went on to add, “It’d be so much fun to shake it up taking on issues that make audiences objectively consider all sides, and I’d do it with my own real-life groundedness, candor and commonsense that I’m known for.” Read more

Afternoon Reading List 09.24.13.

MSNBC host misplaces Kenya: Yesterday afternoon, HuffPost didn’t let a gaffe made by MSNBC’s Touré go unmentioned. While the host was giving the viewing audience a “Monday geography refresher” regarding the Kenya’s whereabouts, he completely botched the region. In no way did he describe Kenya’s geographical location, nor did he come close. Andrew Kaczynski from BuzzFeed called out Touré first VIA Twitter while utilizing a picture of a highlighted Kenya in its actual African location.

Why you should read it: Although these slip ups happen to everyone from time to time and they’re always accidental, they’re also always hilarious and fun to watch!

Sarah Palin demands names: MediaMatters’ blogger Oliver Willisrecently posted a story about Fox News contributor/Russian coastline enthusiast Sarah Palin, regarding her rogue tweet aimed at Fox News Sunday host, Chris Wallace. Wallace announced during the show that he would use “the unsolicited research and questions” of several top Republicans to “hammer” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in response to the efforts Cruz has recently been making in trying to defund Obamacare. Upon hearing Wallace’s plan, Palin took to the tweets and demanded he surrender his “top Republican” sources to be “fair and balanced.”

Why you should read it: Sarah Palin is still trying to be relevant as she attempts to shake down a Fox News reporter through Twitter for some (possibly made up) sources, and it is adorable! Check out the video to see exactly what Wallace said to set Palin off.

Who Wants to See Sarah Palin’s Rack?

The unbelievable cover from The American Spectator magazine says, “Sarah Palin’s Rack.” Now, if you’re anything like me, your head went to a magical, but probably inappropriate place. What the hell could the headline possibly mean? Apparently, it’s an examination of Sarah Palin’s record of electing conservatives, but the cover doesn’t specify that. It just reads like low-rent, soft-core fantasy porn.

This wouldn’t be the first time that a publication has cashed in on Palin’s sex appeal. The former V.P. hopeful famously accused Newsweek of sexism when they showed a picture of her (that she posed for) in running gear.

Maybe this leads to a spike in sales for the magazine by cashing in on whatever appeal Palin still claims to possess. But between this and the return of Anthony Weiner to Twitter, the jokes just write themselves.

As of now, this is a picture of a hardcover version of the magazine. We expect it to be online in the coming days.

UPDATE: The online version can be found here.

Bella Santorum

Reporting on a presidential campaign is exhausting work. Jumping from state to state; sometimes following the same candidate for weeks at a time. A certain bond often forms between the media and a candidate. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was famous for having a great relationship with the press in the primary of 2000. Sometimes it can even have a “family” feel.

News broke over the weekend that GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum’s daughter had been hospitalized for pneumonia. Bella Santorum, 3, has a condition called Trisomy 18. It’s a condition that causes abnormalities in her internal organs. It can be fatal for many of those afflicted.

As soon as the announcement was made that Santorum was stepping off the campaign trail to spend time with Bella, tweets of support began rolling in from journalists.

Bret Baier of Fox News tweeted on Saturday

This must hit especially close to home for Baier since he has seen his fair share of hospital visits with his son, Paul. Paul has a heart defect that has kept him in the hospital for numerous surgeries.

ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jake Tapper also offered up words of support for the Santorum family… Read more

Palin, Cee Lo Create Spectacle @ MSNBC After Party


While attendees at another post-WHCD party struggled to gain admittance due to their host’s chronic and unapologetic guest list failures, MSNBC’s guests breezed though check-in and down a sprawling red carpet to the Italian Embassy.  Rather than watching celebrities make their way to an isolated VIP space, MSNBC’s guests rubbed elbows with the likes of Glee’s Jayne Lynch, SNL’s Andy Samberg, Valerie Jarrett, Meghan McCain, Eliot Spitzer, Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), Bristol Palin with aunt Molly McCann and Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL).

Perhaps the weekend’s best event, MSNBC’s soiree drew a huge array of journalists – many from competitive networks.   CNN was represented by Ed Henry and Shirley Hung Henry, Edie Emery, Peter Hamby, Mark Whitaker, Sam Feist, Roland Martin, David Bohrman, and Christa Robinson.  We spotted ABC’s Rick Klein, Jim Sciutto and Polson Kanneth, as well as CBS’s Christine Delargy.  Fox News anchor Bret Baier was there.   And so was Greta Van Susteren who made quite an entrance when she and husband John Coale appeared with Todd and Sarah Palin.  The family Palin was swarmed by cameras and party-goers only moments before Cee Lo Green took the stage to perform a short set including his hit song “F**k You.”  As Palin posed for what seemed like thousands of photos, Todd, Bristol and Molly conversed with the hoards of guests who circled their table in the room’s far corner.

“We’re still getting used to this,” Sarah’s sister Molly admitted to FishbowlDC.  “I find it kind of exciting but I’m not around it all the time,” she added.

As we turned away, we nearly bumped into WaPo‘s Ezra Klein who was doing a drive-by “Mean Girls” impression.  The liberal blogger laughed out loud and rolled his eyes as he passed by Palin-palooza.  Back on the dance floor, another former governor was getting a different kind of attention from one Kiki Ryan.  The fearless reporter’s blonde ambition must have been in overdrive on Saturday because we hear she tried to persuade Eliot Spitzer to shake his groove thing.  He kindly declined:

From @burgerinfo:
@keeekster(@Italian Em):Mr. Spitzer,would you like to dance?
Spitzer: Dancings not really my forte
@keeekster:Thats not what I hear #winning

Besides our favorite celebrity bartender and TV host Rachel Maddow who spent the evening slinging drinks, NBCers like Luke Russert, Kelly O’Donnell, Domenico Montanaro, Phil Griffin, Tanya Hayre, Ed Schultz, Dylan Ratigan, Erika Masonhall, Betsy Fischer, Savannah Guthrie and Contessa Brewer were among the guests gifted Starbucks swag, a slice of pizza and bottle of Fiji as they left the fete in the morning’s wee hours.
