‘All In With Chris Hayes’ Debuts New Graphics, Music

Chris HayesRegular viewers of “All In with Chris Hayes” might have noticed a different look last night as the show debuted new graphics and music.

The opening animation appeared with new red, white, and black colors; its music had a slower-paced feel compared to the show’s original sound.

“The new open and graphics package were born out of the look we’ve been using in our produced reporting packages,” EP Denis Horgan tells TVNewser (Horgan told us Hayes isn’t your “central casting news anchor guy” in our “What’s Your Show?” video).

“We’ve had such great response to them and it’s a look that better reflects the kind of news and original reporting Chris and the team have been doing this year.”

How Cable News Hosts Reacted to Eric Cantor Defeat

Cable news might occasionally be criticized for predictable political coverage, but last night, top anchors and reporters reacted to an unpredicted political stunner: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor‘s defeat in Virginia’s congressional primary.

“His loss marks a huge victory for the Tea Party movement,” Sean Hannity said before his exclusive interview with the victorious candidate, Dave Brat, via phone. “If you go door to door knocking, the American people know the country is heading in the wrong direction,” Brat told Hannity.

“This is a huge, huge moment in the Republican Party; it’s also a huge moment in politics,” Bret Baier said as he took over coverage during the 8pmET hour. “One of the most powerful Republicans on Capitol Hill goes down,” Megyn Kelly added later on her show.

“Shocking is an overused term in our political discourse, but this news tonight earns the term,” Rachel Maddow said while interrupting a pre-recorded “All In with Chris Hayes” (Hayes came back live at 8:38pmET). “This is the single biggest political upset I’ve ever seen in my life,” Steve Kornacki, host of “Up,” said via phone. Chuck Todd called it a “major upset,” and suggested an important ripple effect: “immigration [reform]…dead.” Todd interview Brat this morning on “Daily Rundown.”

“A seismic shift,” CNN chief congressional correspondent Dana Bash called it as Anderson Cooper broke the news. “Republicans who weren’t running scared may now start running scared,” chief political analyst Gloria Borger said.

Eric Cantor Loss is ‘Shocking,’ ‘Stunning’ and All-Encompassing on Cable News

VARaceJaws dropped in network newsrooms across the country tonight as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost his congressional primary to Tea Party challenger Dave Brat.

Cable news networks went into overdrive with the stunning news. At 8:06pm MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow interrupted Chris Hayes‘ show, which had been pre-recorded. Maddow called it “a shocking development in American politics.” (Hayes returned live at 8:38pm). CNN’s Anderson Cooper called the race at 8:11pm and FNC’s Trace Gallagher broke in to the O’Reilly Factor at 8:14pmET, before Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly picked up coverage and filled out the 8pmET hour.

As vote totals came in in the 7pmET hour, the news networks began speculating that Cantor looked to go down to defeat. Dana Perino in for Greta Van Susteren on Fox News reported Cantor was trailing Brat, as did Erin Burnett on CNN, and Lou Dobbs on FBN.

Cable News Wars: Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Edition

O'Reilly Hayes

The prisoner exchange bringing Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl home for five Taliban members has dominated cable news all week, and last night, it sparked a new round in the cable news wars.

“Ms. Costello [Carol] has an absolute responsibility to know what she’s talking about when she does an interview…she obviously doesn’t know what she’s talking about,” Bill O’Reilly said after airing parts of CNN’s Costello interviewing Rolling Stone writer Matthew Farwell. “Bill O’Reilly, the most dangerous thing that guy has ever done is walk across the street in New York to buy a burger,” Farwell said in response to a question about O’Reilly’s criticism of Bergdahl’s father, Bob.

“That guy is either uninformed, or a liar,” O’Reilly responded, adding his reporting career speaks for itself. On Costello, O’Reilly added: “She has an ethical obligation as a journalist to challenge that kind of stuff.”

Meanwhile, O’Reilly’s 8pmET counterpart Chris Hayes, took issue with his coverage: “Blatant Islamophobia here is eclipsed only by the sheer ridiculousness of the argument,” Hayes said after airing clips of O’Reilly criticizing Bob Bergdahl for appearing at the White House in a full beard, looking like a Muslim.

Hayes then sarcastically asked if we should be worried about other full-bearded men, rolling a montage that included the cast of Duck Dynasty, ZZ Top, Forrest Gump, Abraham Lincoln, and Jesus. On the latter two, Hayes suggested: “Someone needs to look into the guy [O'Reilly] who wrote two sympathetic books about them.”

“I’ll be waiting for the Factor investigation,” Hayes concluded.

May 2014 Ratings: MSNBC Reclaims #2

With the search for Malaysian Air Flight 370 dying down, MSNBC reclaimed the outright second-place spot on the cable news leaderboard in May, besting CNN in both total day and primetime. But the network hit a series of seven-year lows in both total day and primetime this month.

The ratings for May 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 536,000 Total Viewers / 153,000 A25-54
  • Total Day (Mon-Sun): 327,000 Total Viewers / 103,000 A25-54

Like its competitors, MSNBC was down compared to May 2013: the network was down -5% in total viewers and -10% in the A25-54 demographic in total day and -1% and -13%, respectively, in primetime. MSNBC was down the least of all the cable news networks for the month.

In total day, MNSBC delivered its lowest ratings in total viewers since December 2007 and in the A25-54 demo since June 2006. In primetime, the network had its lowest demo delivery since July 2006.

In primetime, “All In with Chris Hayes” and “The Rachel Maddow Show” were both up in total viewers but down in the demo compared to the same month last year: Hayes’ program was up +6% in total viewers and down -13% in the demo and Maddow’s program was up +3% and down -16%, respectively. “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” was down -16% in total viewers and-12% in the A25-54 demo.

It was also a mixed bag for MSNBC’s early evening programming. “The Ed Show” and “Politics Nation” were both down in total viewers but up in the demo. They were the only two cable news shows to grow in the 5pmET and 6pmET timeslots. At 7pmET, “Hardball with Chris Matthews” was up in total viewers but down in the demo.

“Morning Joe” reclaimed the second-place spot among the cable news morning shows for the month, growing +13% in total viewers and +39% in the demo compared to May 2013.

Obama’s Cable News One-Liners from the 2014 White House Correspondents Dinner

Screen Shot 2014-05-03 at 10.33.41 PM

President Obama began his remarks at tonight’s White House Correspondents Dinner around 10:20pmET. C-SPAN, MSNBC, and CNN carried live coverage.

“I am a little jet-lagged for my trip to Malaysia. The lengths we have to go to to get CNN coverage these days. I think they are still searching for their tables.”

“MSNBC is here. They are a little overwhelmed. They have never seen an audience this big before.”

“Look, everyone is trying to keep up with this incredibly fast-changing media landscape. For example, I got a lot of grief on cable news for promoting Obamacare to young people on ‘Between two Ferns.’ To be fair, I am not the first person on television between two potted plants.” (Shows image above of the “Fox & Friends” anchors)

“Let’s face it, Fox, you’ll miss me when I’m gone. It will be harder to convince the American people that Hillary was born in Kenya.”

Later, “Community” star and “The Soup” host Joel McHale, the entertainment for the night, got in a few one-liners about cable news as well.
