The Fox Ticker: Ratings, Greta, Gruber,

  • Greta Van Susteren traveled to Midland, Texas today to interview President George W. Bush at his childhood home. The interviews airs tonight “On the Record” at 7pmET.

  • Sean Hannity sent a camera crew to MIT to talk with Jonathan Gruber, whose comments about Obamacare have made up much of Fox News’s coverage over the last week. Here’s some of what they got on campus, more tonight on “Hannity.”


Celebrity Lineup Announced for ‘CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute’

240Anderson CooperBenedict CumberbatchJohn LeguizamoTaye DiggsChristina HendricksMorgan SpurlockQuestloveKelly Ripa and Kathy Griffin are among the celebrities presenting at ”CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute,” hosted by Anderson Cooper.

Each celebrity presenter will join one of the Top Ten CNN Heroes on stage to share their inspirational story. The event takes place Tuesday night at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and airs Sunday, December 7, at 8pm ET.

Quvenzhané Wallis and Nick Jonas will also be on hand to recognize youths who are being honored by CNN as Young Wonders. This year’s program also features live performances by Trisha Yearwood and Sheryl Crow. 

Now in its eighth year, the Peabody Award-winning, Emmy-nominated “CNN Heroes: An All Star Tribute” has received more than 50,000 nominations from more than 100 countries and profiled over 200 everyday heroes doing extraordinary work.

The 2014 CNN Hero of the Year will be announced during the celebration.

Mike Rowe: ‘CNN, Fox Not Just News Outlets, But Nonfiction Outlets’

141014111252-mike-rowe-smiling-hat-story-topCNN’s “Somebody’s Gotta Do It” host Mike Rowe was the guest for an “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit, and took plenty of questions about various dirty jobs he’s worked in the past and the new job he’s working at CNN. Asked about the transition to being part of a news network, Rowe suggested the old concept of news programming is evolving. “It occurred to me that networks like FOX and CNN were not just news outlets, but fundamentally, nonfiction outlets,” Rowe said. “CNN, in particular, was very interested in exploring alternative forms of programming, very similar to DIRTY JOBS.”

Rowe says fitting into a nightly lineup that includes Anderson Cooper, Erin Burnett and Wolf Blitzer has been effortless. “They’ve been great to work with…And as long as headlines like Ebola, and ISIS, and terrorism, and natural disasters don’t completely dominate the landscape, I think there will be room for SOMEBODY’S GOTTA DO IT and other shows like it.”

CNN Hits New Ratings Low Monday Night

Cooper1110Monday’s 9pmET timeslot on CNN drew 181,000 total viewers, the lowest for the time period since at least Oct. 1, 1991, as far back as Nielsen electronic records go. Anderson Cooper anchored a second live hour of AC360 at 9pm. It was also the lowest rated hour of CNN’s entire day. Cooper finished fourth in the hour behind Megyn Kelly on Fox News, Rachel Maddow on MSNBC and Dr. Drew Pinsky on HLN, in both total viewers and the demo.

CNN’s 9pmET hour was the longtime home of Larry King and, until earlier this year, Piers Morgan. Most nights, CNN’s new non-fiction shows from Lisa Ling, Mike Rowe and John Walsh fill the timeslot. But Mondays have included a second live hour of Cooper.

With Navy SEAL Audio Interview, CNN Gets Ahead of Fox News Special

Billing it as an exclusive, CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed freelance journalist Alex Quade on his show last night and played excerpts of audio interviews Quade conducted over the last year with Navy SEAL Rob O’Neill, who claims he fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden. O’Neill — then called “The Shooter” – was he subject of an Esquire article last year, and next week will be featured in a two-night, two-hour special on Fox News Channel.

Cooper didn’t mention Fox News by name, but rather that O’Neill tells his story “in a TV documentary.”

O’Neill is the second SEAL to speak out about the raid. The first was Matt Bissonette, who “60 Minutes” called Mark Owen in two interviews — including a follow-up last month. Cooper talked with former Navy SEAL Jonathan Gilliam, who says O’Neill could, and should be charged by the military for speaking out. “It’s time to start setting an example. The guy’s my SEAL brother, but he’s gone far beyond where I can support my brother.”

The Saturday Ticker: Cooper, Tucker, Wolf

  • Anderson Cooper hosts two specials leading up “CNN Heroes.” “Stars and Stripes Unite,” which aired last night, looks at celebrities helping returning troops. In “Rescuing the River,” airing Dec. 5, Cooper visits last year’s Hero of the Year whose mission is to clean up the Mississippi River.
  • On her most recent Greta Talk podcast, FNC’s Tucker Carlson joined Greta Van Susteren. “Tucker and I go way, way, way back.,” said Greta who worked with Carlson at CNN.
  • After a long week that included midterm election coverage, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ended his week in Las Vegas where last night he attended the Soul Train Awards. Wolf also paused long enough to pose for a photo with the Chippendales.

CNN’s ‘Major, Major Projection’ Immediately Labeled ‘Not a Major Surprise’

IMG_1855Here’s the thing about dramatic music and full-screen wipes: they seem silly when you follow them up with an admission that, well, none of this was even a shred of a surprise. Take CNN’s call on control of the House of Representatives. CNN’s Anderson Cooper threw to Wolf Blitzer with a promise of a “big projection.”

Blitzer said it was, bigger than big, a “major, major projection” in the fight for control of the House. “Which party is coming out ahead? Get ready for that major projection RIGHT NOW.” And CNN rolled the full screen CNN PROJECTION graphic, after which Blitzer himself poured ice water all over the preceding thirty seconds of dramatic hype: “Not a major surprise by any means.”

Yes, That Really Is a Wall of 24 CNN Reporters

B1oTQJVIIAA34Ny.jpg-largeCNN wants viewers to know it has the best–and biggest–political team on television. To drive the point home, CNN’s Anderson Cooper has spent much of the evening standing in front of a 24-box on the “Election Night in America” set. On Twitter, plenty of observers have jumped on the icosikaitetragon of reporters:
