April 2014 Ratings: MSNBC Third in Total Day

MSNBC slipped to third in total day this month, delivering its lowest average in nearly seven years — since October 2007. In primetime, the network managed to hang on to second place in total viewers, but placed third  in the A25-54 demographic.

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

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 612,000 Total Viewers / 173,000 A25-54
  • Total Day (Mon-Sun): 356,000 Total Viewers / 112,000 A25-54

Compared to the same month last year, MSNBC was down -12% in total viewers and -19% in A25-54 viewers in total day. In primetime, the network was down -10% and -26%, respectively. Although April 2013 was a busy news month with the Boston Marathon bombings, MSNBC did not see much of a bump this time last year.

MSNBC’s daytime programming struggled in April.  The newest daytime programs — “Ronan Farrow Daily” and “The Reid Report” — have so far failed to move the ratings needle. Farrow’s program averaged 238,000 total viewers and 67,000 A25-54 viewers and Joy Reid‘s averaged 266,000 and 72,000, respectively; in total viewers, it was the lowest rated month in the 1pmET timeslot since 2007 and in the 2pmET timeslot since 2010.

“Morning Joe” slipped to third among the cable news morning shows in April, delivering its lowest-rated month in total viewers since December 2009.

All three of MSNBC’s primetime shows were down across the board compared to April 2013: “All In with Chris Hayes” was down -7% in total viewers and -27% in the demo, “The Rachel Maddow Show” was down -4% in total viewers and -32% int the demo, and “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” was down -19% and -33%, respectively.

MSNBC Primetime Covers Cliven Bundy Comments, Sean Hannity Denouncing Them

Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy‘s controversial comments about African Americans caused a stir yesterday, and MSNBC led each of its primetime shows covering the story; the network also covered Fox News’ Sean Hannity denouncing Bundy’s comments.

At 8pmET, “All In with Chris Hayes” covered the “great Cliven Bundy walk-back of 2014.” More than anyone else, Sean Hannity built up Cliven Bundy into a media hero, Hayes said about the Fox News host. Joining Hayes, MSNBC host Karen Finney noted every major figure that denounced Bundy, especially politicians, did it through a spokesperson–except for Hannity, who called Bundy’s comments “repugnant” and “disgraceful” on his radio show yesterday.

Filling in for Lawrence O’Donnell, Ari Melber claimed Hannity “elevated” Bundy. “If all these developments are progress, it’s of a very narrow and calculated variety,” Melber said after playing Hannity’s critical comments about Bundy.

On “Hardball,” substitute host Steve Kornacki wasn’t satisfied by Hannity’s critical comments about Bundy: “Sean Hannity always ends up being the victim, that’s what it sounds like…Sean Hannity made this guy a cause.”

And on Fox News, Hannity went beyond his radio denouncement of Bundy: “Allow me to make myself abundantly clear. I believe those comments are downright racist, they are repugnant, they are bigoted, and it’s beyond disturbing.”

Lawrence O’Donnell Will Be Off MSNBC for Several Weeks After Car Accident

lawrence-odonnellLawrence O’Donnell will be off the air for several weeks after being involved in a car accident over the weekend while vacationing.

Here’s MSNBC’s statement:

“Lawrence O’Donnell and his brother Michael were injured in a taxi accident on Saturday while vacationing out of the country. They were transported back to the US – Lawrence to NYC and Michael to Boston. They are both under the care of doctors and expected to make a full recovery. Lawrence will be off from MSNBC for several weeks as he recuperates. Our thoughts and support are with the O’Donnell family and we look forward to having Lawrence back on the air soon.”

No word yet on the extent of the O’Donnell brothers’ injuries, but MSNBC tells us both are in good spirits.

Alex Wagner will fill in on “The Last Word” tonight and tomorrow night, with Ari Melber filling in on Wednesday and Thursday.

Q1 2014 Ratings: MSNBC Tops CNN, But Sheds Viewers

Despite a strong March for CNN, MSNBC held on to the second-place spot among the cable news networks in both total day and primetime during the first quarter of 2014. But like CNN and HLN, MSNBC was down compared to the year-ago quarter in both dayparts.

The ratings for Q1 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 683,000 Total Viewers / 217,000 A25-54
  • Total Day (Mon-Sun): 394,000 Total Viewers / 138,000 A25-54

Compared to Q1 2013, MSNBC is down -9% in total day and -2% in the A25-54 demographic. In primetime, the network is down -10% and -4%, respectively.

In primetime, “The Rachel Maddow Show” and “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” were both down compared to the year-ago quarter: Maddow’s program was down -2% in total viewers and -4% in the A25-54 demographic and O’Donnell’s show was down -7% and -4%, respectively. “All In with Chris Hayes” — which debuted one year ago today — was the only primetime show to show growth in either ratings measurement, up +6% in the demo despite being down -15% in total viewers compared to the 8pmET timeslot last year.

“Hardball with Chris Matthews” continues to see strong ratings at 7pmET: the show topped CNN by +448,000 total viewers and +74,000 A25-54 viewers for the quarter. Compared to Q1 2013, CNN is up +19% and +16%, respectively.

It was the lowest-rated quarter for “Morning Joe,” “Andrea Mitchell Reports” and “Jansing & Co” since 2010. “Morning Joe” finished second in its time slot, while Mitchell’s program and Chris Jansing‘s program finished third at 1pmET and 10amET, respectively.

‘The Daily Show’ Tells Story of ‘Family That Stays Together’…’Morning Joe’

MJ Daily Show“The Daily Show’s” Samantha Bee‘s infatuation with cable news romance apparently isn’t limited to the “love story” she depicted between Fox News’ “The Five’s” Greg Gutfeld and Dana Perino—she set her sights on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” last night.

Bee told the story of “daddy Joe” and “mother Mika,” who together create a “rocket ship of passion that is middle-aged coupledome.”

She then shared what the fruits of the co-hosts “romance” has produced: boy pundits, listing off “Willie”(Willie Geist), “Marky” (Mark Halperin), “the Toddster” (Chuck Todd), and a cast of other show regulars.

Bee then got emotional as she showed clips of Joe and Mika arguing. “You guys are going to get divorced, aren’t you? Please don’t make me go live with Lawrence O’Donnell… he doesn’t flush the toilet,” Bee cried.

“Morning Joe” is not reciprocating the love. This morning the show opened instead with a “Colbert Report” clip. Now that Bee has told Fox News and MSNBC “love stories” we anxiously await her CNN version.

On FNC, NYT Reporter Holds Breaking News on Malaysia Airlines Until It Hits NYTimes.com

Kelly SchmidtAll three cable news networks reported last night’s New York Times breaking news that missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370′s first turn that diverted the plane’s path was done by a computer system potentially programmed in the plane’s cockpit.

Megyn Kelly had the co-writer of the Times story, Michael Schmidt, on as a guest at the top of her show at 9:01pmET.

But Schmidt sat on his reporting for 23 minutes, until after the piece went live on the NYTimes.com.  “Way to hold it, right until the C block, Michael,” Kelly said sarcastically to Schmidt before he reported the news of the plane deliberately being diverted at  9:24pmET mark of the “Kelly File” (the funny exchange is after the jump).

Filling in on “Piers Morgan Live,” Bill Weir reported the Times story at 9:26pmET, talking to CNN safety analyst David Soucie and CNN aviation analyst Jim Tilmon.

MSNBC first mentioned the NY Times story at the top of “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” at 10:02pmET, as guest host Ari Melber turned to a report from NBC’s Tom Costello followed by a segment with former NTSB investigator Greg Feith and former corporate pilot Anthony Roman.

NBC Closes Burbank Studios

LawrenceLawrence O’Donnell made history last night on MSNBC.

“This is the last national primetime broadcast from NBC Burbank,” O’Donnell said.

O’Donnell rattled off the “giants” who have originated from the West Alameda Avenue complex, including Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, Steve Allen, Jack Benny, Dean Martin, and Elvis Presley.

“I first entered this building in the first year of MSNBC, 1996, to do my first appearance as a political pundit from Los Angeles—which you now know was actually Burbank,” O’Donnell added.

The building also served as NBC News’ west coast bureau and home to KNBC which moved to a new facility last month in nearby Universal City. NBC News will also move its Los Angeles bureau to an adjacent building on the Universal lot, which will be home to O’Donnell’s studio when he’s in LA.
