“We’re heartbroken something like this might have happened again,” Pres. Obama said in a statement from Chicago, adding investigators will ”get to the bottom of exactly what happened.”

At a 10:45pm news conference, Ft. Hood Commanding General Mark Milley said the assailant had served four months in Iraq in 2011 and was “undergoing behavioral health and psychiatric treatment” for depression and anxiety, but had not been diagnosed with PTSD. Armed with a .45 caliber Smith & Wesson, which was not registered on the base, the gunman killed three military personal. Sixteen others were wounded. The gunman was stopped by a female officer who drew her weapon, at which point Lopez turned the gun on himself.

The Top Cable News Shows in Q1 2014 Were…

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.

Ratings Notes: O’Reilly, Morgan

  • A night after losing to CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360″ in the demo by 4,000 viewers, “The O’Reilly Factor” was back on top Wednesday night. Bill O’Reilly almost doubled Cooper in the demo with 537,000 A25-54 viewers compared to “AC360′s” 342,000. Overall, Fox News had its third highest-rated primetime of 2014 last night.

  • Piers Morgan is having a good final week, ratings wise, on CNN. For the third night in a row, he has bested MSNBC’s No. 1 show “The Rachel Maddow Show” in the A25-54 demo. “Piers Morgan Live” still placed third in total viewers. For the majority of his three years hosting at CNN, Morgan’s show has been in third place in both total and demo viewers. He bids farewell to the 9pmET hour tomorrow night.

In the second edition of the MediabistroTV series “What’s Your Show?” Hayes and his team take us behind the scenes of “All In,” which Hayes calls much more “host driven” than your average cable news show.
