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.

  • 11/24/14: 7pm–1amET | Total Viewers / A25-54 demo

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

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.”


Ubiquitous Jon Stewart’s Next Stop is ‘The O’Reilly Factor’

400JONBILLJon Stewart has been on pretty much every news channel recently (TV and Web) to promote his film “Rosewater.” But tonight’s appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” has the potential to make news for other reasons. Because, well, it always seems to make news when Stewart and O’Reilly  get together.

Last month, Bill O’Reilly  was on Stewart’s show to promote “Killing Patton,” where they got into a debate over White Privilege. The longtime frenemies have been frequent guests on each other’s shows since 2001 and even had a debate back in 2012.

Stewart’s visit to Fox comes the same week the “Daily Show” host had a verbal spat Fox Newser Sean Hannity.

Sean Hannity, Dubbed ‘Loathsome’ By Jon Stewart, Fires Back

18a60d7nzlrp7jpgFox News host Sean Hannity, who said in a recent interview with TVNewser that Stephen Colbert isn’t “as funny as Jon Stewart“, isn’t finding Stewart all that funny these days. The “Daily Show” host told Rolling Stone that “Sean Hannity is probably the most loathsome dude over there.”

Now Hannity’s firing back, in an email to Politico’s Dylan Byers:

“Jon’s problem is he has his head so far up Obama’s ass he cannot see clearly, he is obviously better suited to reading his joke writers material, and making his clapping seal audience happy,” Hannity continued.

“I await another Rally to Restore Sanity with Fatwah supporter Cat Stevens!!” he said, referring to the event that Stewart and Stephen Colbert hosted in Washington, D.C., in 2010.

In Profile (FNC Edition): Kelly, Hannity, Cavuto

Megyn Kelly is in the latest issue of Fortune magazine in a feature titled “Best Advice From CEOs,” in which CEOs, EVPs, company founders, and one cable news anchor, share their secrets to success:

My boss told me, “People will imitate you. They will try to do what you do. Never worry about them, because there’s only one you. So whatever you’re doing that makes you special, they can imitate it. But they can never be the same person, with the same delivery, with the same gifts and so on.”

Sean Hannity talked to Reuters about his new “jiu-jitsu” regimen, his matchmaking skills, and his politics: Read more

Final ‘Colbert Report’ is Dec. 18

You’ll only have about 7 more weeks of “Colbert Report” on Comedy Central, which is probably just fine with Sean Hannity.

“On December 18, my show is ending,” Colbert announced last night, just before a bit on voter apathy about the midterms, which included George Takei. “The 2014 midterms are the most expensive ever, costing $4 billion, and nobody is watching. It’s like the ‘Lone Ranger’ of elections.”

Colbert takes over for David Letterman when Letterman steps down from CBS’s the “Late Show” expected to be in May.

The Ticker: Vargas, Mukpo, Sexton, Warren

  • Expect to see Ashoka Mukpo on NBC News sometime soon. The network is already promoting “exclusive interviews” with the Ebola survivor/freelance cameraman who had been on assignment for NBC News when diagnosed with the disease earlier this month.

  • Scott Warren, who was the Senior EP of Sam Champion‘s Weather Channel show, is no longer with the channel. Warren had been with Weather Channel for a year. Previously he worked for KTVU, KTLA and Yahoo!
