Rachel Maddow Accepts Shep Smith’s Challenge, Gets Doused With Ice Water

Screen Shot 2014-07-30 at 10.43.59 PM

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow took up Shepard Smith‘s challenge, by getting doused with a bucket of ice water. Last week we told you about Smith, who took up the challenge and had not one, but two buckets of water dumped on him. He passed the challenge on to Maddow, and two others. Today, Maddow accepted, then challenged three others to get doused. If they do, the will give $50 to the charity of Maddow’s choice, in this case the Andi Leadership Institute for Young Women. Among those she challenged: former State Department official Liz Cheney.

Then, with the help of executive producer Bill Wolff, Maddow got iced. Watch:

Rand Paul: When MSNBC ‘Does 24-Hour News Telling the Truth’ Then We’ll Discuss

In an MSNBC interview today alongside Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Rand Paul hit back at MSNBC for what he feels was the network’s attempt to distort one of his positions years ago.

“The honest discussion of it would be I never was opposed to the Civil Rights Act, and when your network does 24-hour news telling the truth, then maybe we can get somewhere with the discussion,” Paul said to Ari Melber in response to Melber who’d asked about comments then-senate candidate Paul made in 2010 on “The Rachel Maddow Show” about whether certain businesses should be allowed to refuse service based on race. (Also, this wasn’t exclusive, as Melber described it. Booker and Melber were interviewed last night on PBS NewsHour.)

July 2014 Ratings: MSNBC Has Lowest Primetime Demo in Eight Years

MSNBC placed third in viewers and fourth in A25-54 demo viewers in total day this month. In primetime, the network finished second in viewers and third in the demo; the latter was the network’s lowest in eight years–since July 2006.

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

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 550,000 Total Viewers / 152,000 A25-54
  • Total Day (Mon-Sun): 318,000 Total Viewers / 92,000 A25-54

Compared to the same month last year, MSNBC was down -16% in total viewers and -33% in A25-54 viewers in total day. In primetime, the network was down -6% and -25%, respectively.

MSNBC’s daytime programming struggled in July. Marking six months at 4pmET, “Now with Alex Wagner” is down -28% in total viewers and -57% in the demo compared to last year when Martin Bashir hosted the hour; the demo is the lowest at 4pmET since 2005. “The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd” is down -21% in viewers and -47% in the demo; the latter is the lowest since 2004.

In primetime, all three MSNBC’s shows were up in total viewers but down double digits in the demo. “All In with Chris Hayes” was up +6% in total viewers and down -20% in the demo, “The Rachel Maddow Show” was up +2% in total viewers and down -20% in the demo, and “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” was up +8% and down -17%, respectively.

Shepard Smith Gets Doused, Challenges Rachel Maddow to do the Same

shepwater

Shepard Smith got doused, all for a good cause.

The Fox News anchor was challenged to get two buckets of ice cold water dumped on him to raise money for the Kay Yow Foundation, named for the North Carolina State women’s basketball coach who died of  breast cancer in 2009.

Part of the challenge is to pass it on. So before he got all wet, Smith challenged three others to do the same. They include former Ole Miss and Arizona Diamonbacks star David Dellucci, Detroit Tigers star Joba Chamberlain and MSNBC host Rachel Maddow.

If they do it, Smith will give $50 each to the charity. If they don’t, they have to pony up $250. What’s it going to be, Rachel?

Watch the dousing of Shep, after the jump…

White, Male Guests Dominate Cable News

A new survey by Fair finds cable news guests are overwhelmingly white and male in the evening hours. Fair surveyed six cable news shows — “The O’Reilly Factor” and “Hannity” on Fox News, “All In with Chris Hayes” and “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC and “OutFront with Erin Burnett” and “Anderson Cooper 360″ on CNN — over five weeks for the study.

Of the 1,015 guests that appeared across the shows in the survey period, 84 percent were white and 72 percent were male. The most diverse show in terms of ethnicity was “All In,” while “The O’Reilly Factor” was the most diverse in terms of gender.
