16 Million Tune in to Cable News For Ferguson Grand Jury Announcement

CuomoFergusonThe news surrounding the grand jury’s decision in the Darren Wilson case gave cable news channels a ratings surge Monday.

While the decision had been reached by mid-afternoon, news channels had 7 hours to consider the result as it was not announced until the 9pmET hour, when daytime viewership peaked. During that hour, FNC, CNN, MSNBC and HLN drew a combined 16.406 million viewers. For comparison, 15.27 million were watching the night’s No. 1 broadcast show, “Dancing with the Stars,” as well as an ABC News special report on the Wilson case, at 9pm.

Fox Business Network, Al Jazeera America and Fusion also produced special coverage while the big four broadcasters interrupted with special reports.

On cable, Fox News led in total viewers for the hour, averaging 7.256M, while CNN led in the younger demo with 3.155M. On Fox News, Megyn Kelly and Sean Hannity both had all-time ratings highs.

CNN, which devoted the most resources and the most coverage to the run-up to the decision and its riotous result, earned rare ratings wins: for total day and primetime demo viewership. Fox News took total viewership wins in daytime and primetime. Last night, CNN more than doubled its mid-term election night coverage, when it averaged 2.1 million total viewers and 909,000 in the demo.

Coverage continued late into the night with CNN topping its cable competitors in the hours following Pres. Obama’s remarks (approximately 10:19pmET) in both total viewers and the demo.

FNC: 4,385,000 / 1,399,000
CNN: 4,365,000 / 2,332,000

MSNBC’s Al Sharpton Immersed in Ferguson News, Draws Criticism from Megyn Kelly

SharptonMSNBC host Al Sharpton continues to be front and center in the aftermath of the grand jury’s decision to not indict Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.

Sharpton spoke at a Brown family news conference this afternoon, speaking directly to St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Robert McCulloch. “This is not our first rodeo McCullough. We will deal with this in a way civil rights leaders have,” Sharpton said.

During Fox News’ coverage of the chaos last night Megyn Kelly had some choice words for Sharpton. “Whether they [Ferguson residents] believe the representations of a guy like Al Sharpton, who just went out there and stoked the fires by giving them misinformation after misinformation, never to be corrected.”

Megyn Kelly Set to Chat With Facebook Fans

megyn-kellyFox News Channel anchor Megyn Kelly will answer questions on Facebook tonight to celebrate surpassing 1 million likes.

She’ll be taking questions at 10 pm ET, immediately after her show, “The Kelly File,” ends. She last did a Facebook chat with Cosmpolitan’s Joanna Coles on Nov. 3, the day before midterm elections.

Kelly seems to be extremely popular on Facebook, as her show’s page has surpassed 1M fans and her personal page has over a half million likes since it was created in June 2014. ”The Kelly File” page has received over 2.3M Facebook interactions in the last month and has grown 807 percent since Nov. 17 of last year, adding 903K fans.

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.”


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.

It’s Huckabee with an ‘H’ Not an ‘F’

Megyn Kelly had a little slip of the tongue last night introducing fellow Fox News host Mike Huckabee on her show. Instead of calling his show “Huckabee” she called it… well just watch:

Kelly acknowledged the slip at the end of her show: “Something else that happened on the program is also getting a lot of attention on Twitter and including this tweet from some nice man named Sean who said ‘Megyn you’re a delight to watch and gave a stoic performance after your slip up with Governor Huckabee’s name.’ I thought I was stoic too – I have a heart of a 12 year old boy.”

This all reminds us of the time Shepard Smith said this about Jennifer Lopez, or Chris Matthews had this slip (more than once) about Barack Obama or Jane Skinner said this.

Megyn Kelly a Panelist at ‘Cosmopolitan’ Event

Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly  was a guest panelist on Saturday at Cosmopolitan’s Fun Fearless Life event at the David Koch Theater at Lincoln Center.

The “Finding our Power” panel included Kelly, Sallie Krawcheck and Julie Greenwald (COO, Atlantic Records) and was moderated by Cosmo editor Leslie Yael. Guest speakers included Gabrielle Union, Kelly Osbourne and Chrissy Teigen.

The event, for about 2,000 females in their twenties, was similar in nature, albeit geared for a younger audience, to last month’s Fortune’s Most Powerful Women Summit, when Kelly was interviewed by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.
