Midterm Election TV Ratings: Fox News Tops Broadcast Nets, Beats Cablers Combined (TVNewser)
Fox News Channel was the most-watched network — on broadcast and on cable — during coverage of the midterm elections. Fox News beat CNN and MSNBC in both total viewers and the adults 25-54 demo, combined during primetime hours. Capital New York FNC, CNN and MSNBC were all down compared to the 2010 midterm elections, and CNN and MSNBC were also down compared to the 2006 midterms, which saw President Bush in his sixth year in office see the Democratic party take control in Congress. All told, an average of just over 10 million people watched the three cable news channels Tuesday night, with an average of nearly 13 million watching on broadcast TV. THR / The Live Feed Fox News Channel boasted a whopping average of 6.3 million viewers for all of primetime. Compared to the last four Tuesdays, FNC’s 1.516 million viewers in the core news demo of adults 25-54 was improved by 303 percent. CNN, which has been solidly in second place for the last six months, was up by 480 percent to 812,000. That left MSNBC in third. Coming off of a middling October, the net still surged 315 percent — albeit only netting 481,000 demo viewers. TVNewser In addition to online coverage, each of the Big 3 broadcast networks produced one-hour primetime midterm election specials at 10 p.m. According to Nielsen overnight time period data, CBS was the clear winner at 10 p.m., averaging 5.367 million viewers to NBC’s 4.270 million and ABC’s 3.507 million.

Medill Journalism Student: ‘Clearly I Did Not Know the Proper Way to Aggregate’

DeseretNewsLogoIt’s been a rough week for the Deseret News, a well-trafficked Utah newspaper owned by the Church of Latter-day Saints, and their recent summer intern Michael Smith. All thanks to the intrepid efforts of iMediaEthics managing editor Sydney Smith.

On Monday-Tuesday, Smith gradually got to the bottom of dozens of improperly attributed online items, all with Smith’s byline. Today, the former intern, a graduate student at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, explains and takes full responsibility for his sloppy actions involving sources such as the Washington Examiner and cbc.ca:

“Clearly I did not know the proper way to aggregate, which was my intention,” he told iMediaEthics via email. “I now know that I should have used quotation marks even after I wrote ‘According to…’ or ‘X reports that…’ I thought that explicitly stating whoever reported made it clear that it was from them, and not me, but I was obviously wrong.”

Daytime Emmy Awards: Days of Our Lives Wins Best Drama, George Lucas Nabs First Emmy (THR / The Race Blog)
In a surprise win, Days of Our Lives was named best drama series Sunday night at the 40th annual Daytime Emmy Awards, which aired live from the Beverly Hilton on HLN. CBS’ The Price Is Right won best game show, while Cash Cab host Ben Bailey won best game show host, more than a year after Discovery Channel canceled the long-running taxi-set quiz show. Meanwhile, CBS Sunday Morning beat out NBC’s Today and ABC’s Good Morning America for best morning program honors. TheWrap The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which already won six Creative Arts Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday, took home top honors in the daytime talk category, winning the Emmy for outstanding daytime talk show, entertainment. Overall, CBS ruled the night with a total of eight wins, including two Emmys in one category when Scott Clifton of The Bold and the Beautiful and Billy Miller of The Young and the Restless tied for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. Deadline Hollywood In his first Emmy win, George Lucas accepted the award for Outstanding Special Class Animated Program for his Star Wars: The Clone Wars series from presenter Carrie Fisher who joked before opening the envelope, “Our nominees haven’t taken acid, at least not with me — which is, as most of you know, the only way to go. Right, George?” Lucas thanked the TV Academy for including animation in their annual program and gave a shout out to “all those poor souls who toil over their computers.” HuffPost / AP Kevin Clash, the Elmo puppeteer who resigned amid allegations that he sexually abused underage boys, won three Daytime Emmy Awards for his work on Sesame Street. Yahoo! News / AP In a major gaffe, Aisha Tyler of The Talk was presenting outstanding talk show when she opened the envelope and quickly realized she had been given the wrong one. “Oh, interestingly enough this winner is not in this category,” she said. “If I read it out I’m going to give another category away.” The audience at the Beverly Hilton hotel gasped and Tyler vamped while waiting to be given the correct envelope from the wings. TVNewser One show that probably won’t win an Emmy: the 2013 Daytime Emmy Awards. Hosted by Good Morning America’s Sam Champion and HLN’s Robin Meade and A.J. Hammer, the show was rife with technical errors, missed cues and an “F” bomb that didn’t get bleeped. Read more
