Experian Hitwise: The Last Word Edges On the Record

The tug-of-war between MSNBC’s The Last Word and Fox News Channel’s On the Record with Greta Van Susteren for third-place on the Experian Hitwise chart of the top three cable-news-show websites continued, with The Last Word seizing the No. 3 spot for the week ending June 11 after conceding it to On the Record the previous week. The top two once again were Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, respectively.

Two Comedy Central offerings — The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report — claimed the top two spots on the late-night talk-show website chart for the fourth week in a row, while TBS’ Conan bumped NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon out of third place.

The morning news shows were unchanged, as usual: NBC’s Today, ABC’s Good Morning America, and CBS’ The Early Show.

Experian Hitwise: Fox Report with Shepard Smith, The Last Word Surge Up Cable News Chart

Unlike the week ending May 14, there was change aplenty in the Experian Hitwise list of the top three cable-news-show websites for the week ending May 21. Fox News Channel’s The O’Reilly Factor continued to top the chart, but it was followed by two new entries — network sibling Fox Report with Shepard Smith at No. 2, and MSNBC’s The Last Word in third place.

The top two late-night talk-show sites were unchanged from the previous week — Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report — and third place went to NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, which replaced fellow NBC offering Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

As usual, there were no changes in the morning-news-show rankings: NBC’s Today, ABC’s Good Morning America, and CBS’ The Early Show.

Keith Olbermann’s Appearance on ‘The Last Word’

As TVNewser reported yesterday, MSNBC’s “Countdown” host Keith Olbermann was a guest on the first edition of “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” last night, joining Vice President Joe Biden.

While O’Donnell told us that Olbermann would be giving him advice on hosting a new show, the topic of conversation took a more serious turn, with the two wonking out over tax policy:

Olbermann did have some friendly advice for O’Donnell at the end of the segment, however.

“I can not thank you enough for getting me started on this new show,” O’Donnell said to Olbermann.

“You are very welcome and keep them there until 11 o’clock,” Olbermann quipped.
