Who did we miss?
The Ragin’ Cajun is bringing his heat to Fox News Channel. James Carville is joining the network as a political analyst.
Carville will appear across various FNC programs offering political commentary on the news of the day.
Bill Shine, EVP of Programming for the network, says Carville’s “successful and storied career in politics over several decades is an enormous asset to FOX News. We are privileged to have him lend his breadth of experience, wit and dynamic perspective on the network.”
Carville hit the national scene as the lead strategist in Bill Clinton‘s 1992 presidential campaign. Carville continued to serve as a senior political adviser to Pres. Clinton.
The overwhelming majority of you wanted someone outside of the options given. With 25% voting for “other.” Some of those “others” include Rush Limbaugh, Anthony Weiner, former President Bill Clinton, and one wrote in “a ceramic toad would be nice.” Another big “other” choice was Sarah Palin. Yesterday, Palin reiterated that she accepted Bashir’s apology and it’s time to move on from the remarks directed at her that cost Bashir his job.
MSNBC tells TVNewser they’ll have an announcement about a permanent replacement host in the coming weeks.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews will sit down with President Obama in an interview that will focus on healthcare, confidence in government, political dysfunction and voter suppression.

Former President Bill Clinton is also making the TV rounds this week—speaking with two Spanish-language hosts ahead of the Clinton Global Initiative’s Latin America meeting in Brazil.
HBO has ordered a documentary chronicling the life and career of former President Bill Clinton, with Martin Scorsese serving as the film’s director.
The film is being “made with Clinton’s full cooperation,” the network says, and “will explore his perspectives on history, politics, culture and the world.”
HBO did not provide a timetable for when the documentary would debut. The pay-cable network remains one of the most prolific producers of TV documentary films in the U.S. Earlier this year it aired a documentary examining the life of Clinton’s predecessor, President George H.W. Bush. It also ordered a documentary about the difficult life of war photographers.
“I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film,” said Clinton in a statement. “I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO’s audience.”
“A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world,” said Scorsese in a statement. “Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure.”
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow has been nominated for a Grammy Award.
The awards will be handed out Sunday, February 10, 2013 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and will be broadcast live on CBS. The full list of nominees is here.

- CNBC has plucked Jake Novak from Fox Business Network. Starting Monday Novak, who was Stuart Varney‘s producer at FBN, will be Supervising Producer of CNBC’s “Street Signs.”
Griffin: …everybody tries to make an equivalence between us and Fox. You tell me when Fox praises the Democrats! Lawrence O’Donnell said it was one of the best speeches he heard by Romney. Ed Schultz talked about how a star was born with Ryan—even though he disagreed with everything he said. Steve Schmidt the former McCain manager in the ’08 election talked about strategy and helped us understand what they’re doing. We’re totally open to—we don’t have to agree with it but we totally understood it and tried to dissect it and appreciate it for what it is. You never see that at Fox—there’s no equivalency!
Of course, that’s not exactly accurate, and since Griffin asked, here are a few recent examples of Fox news praising democrats.
On day two of the Democratic National Convention, which featured a 48-minute speech from former Pres. Bill Clinton, MSNBC was once again the top choice for cable news viewers, while ABC News was #1 at 10pm. NBC was the big winner of the night, however, as it broadcast the first game of the 2012 NFL season. In the 10pm hour, NBC averaged 20.2 million viewers watching the Giants-Cowboys, while the combined averages of ABC, CBS, MSNBC, FNC and CNN was 20.6 million.
While MSNBC led the cablers again, only Fox News grew its audience from Tuesday night, in both total viewers (+7%) and demo viewers (+14%).
- Cable News Primetime , Sept. 5, 8-11pm
MSNBC: 3,307,740 viewers (1,003,068 in 25-54)
CNN: 2,919,265 viewers (961,695 in 25-54)
FNC: 2,699,098 viewers (629,025 in 25-54)
ABC eked out a win over CBS at 10pm, by just +4%. MSNBC was third in Total Viewers while CNN grabbed third (a cable win) in the demo. All the networks gained viewers from Tuesday in the hour, not unusual since there was one less outlet to watch (NBC).
- DNC Day Two / Sept. 5, 10-11pm:
ABC: 4,587,224 viewers (1,728,724 in 25-54)
CBS: 4,410,140 viewers (1,723,928 in 25-54)
MSNBC: 4,387,567 viewers (1,419,115 in 25-54)
CNN: 4,134,662 viewers (1,543,771 in 25-54)
FNC: 3,102,606 viewers (813,816 in 25-54)
Compared to Day 2 of the DNC in 2008, ABC, CBS, MSNBC and FNC are up. The growth can be attributed to NBC passing on the DNC for the NFL, and the fact that CNN is down -23% in total viewers and down -33% in A25-54 viewers, vs. 2008.
And even with football on NBC, the 10pm hour of the DNC’s night two still topped night two of the RNC a week ago: 20,622,000 vs. 20,049,000
