Chris Matthews Thrives Live at 7: ‘Loyalty Counts For A Lot With Me’

Chris MatthewsThree months ago today MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Matthews” moved out of its 5pm timeslot — making way for Ed Schultz — to a single 7pmET airing. In the process, the one-a-day has given the 7pm hour a boost. Three of the four nights it was on last week (pre-empted Friday for JFK coverage) “Hardball” was MSNBC’s No. 1 show in the demo, ahead of Rachel Maddow. It is consistently No. 2 in cable news at that hour, behind FNC’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”

The 7pm hour is up +47% in total viewers and up +29% in the A25-54 demo compared to the first eight months of 2013 before the change was made. Compared to August alone, “Hardball” at 7pm ET is up +92% in total viewers and up +69% in the demo.

“I’ve asked Hardball fans to adjust their evening viewing habit and I’m gratified that so many have,” Matthews told TVNewser. “These are obviously very important times and loyalty counts for a lot with me.”

JFK Specials a Draw for Networks; CBS Sees Biggest Numbers Since 1996

OsgoodKennedy50 years later, there’s still great interest in the assassination of Pres. John F. Kennedy. The networks and news shows have been producing special reports all week. And viewers are tuning in in big numbers:

  • A special edition of “CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood” generated the broadcast’s largest audience since February 4, 1996 drawing 6.23m viewers. As a comparison, that’s more than the weekday averages of the morning shows.
  • CBS’s Bob Schieffer anchored “Face the Nation” from Dallas last Sunday. The show had its biggest viewership in 12 years — since Sunday, Sept. 16, 2001. 4.57m viewers watched the broadcast making it the No. 1 public affairs show last Sunday.
  • Saturday night, CBS News broadcast “As it Happened: John F. Kennedy: 50 Years,” also hosted by Schieffer. The show was first in viewers and households at 9pm drawing 4.56m viewers.
  • Sunday night CNN aired “The Assassination of President Kennedy.” Back-to-back airings at 9pmET and at 11pmET won the cable news ratings in both total viewers and the demo. The 9pm airing drew 720,000 viewers / 201,000 in the demo; and at 11pm, 648,000 viewers watched with 238,000 in the demo.

Coverage will culminate tomorrow, the actual anniversary. Tom Brokaw and Dan Rather will be live in studio on NBC’s “Today” while Brian Williams will anchor “NBC Nightly News” and Scott Pelley will anchor “CBS Evening News” from Dallas.
