Looks like I'm giving up MSNBC except for 2 hours a day.

And how come we never saw any numbers for Stephanie Miller on MSNBC?

I can't find them anywhere.


How'd David Gregory Do?

After three days of "Gregory Live," how's David Gregory doing in his A.M. tryout?

On his first day, MSNBC averaged 247,000 viewers, with 59,000 in the 25-54 demo. (FNC had 731,000/322,000 and CNN had 398,000/136,000.)

Barack Obama was on the show yesterday. Tony Snow was on this morning.

Next week, CNBC's Jim Cramer will host from 6 to 9am...


Yeah, uh huh. This is what I want to see at 6a.

Man, I'm with you on this one. Following Greenwald, it seems the only mission of cable news and their faux journalists is to please their employers, not their viewers. I flipped through on three separate parts of the day from 6a-5p and each time MSNBC was running a little catfight with some loudmouthed broad who was screaming about a "perv watching a little league baseball game from across the street on his porch!"

I mean heyzeus gotdamn man.

Chris Matthews is so old he slobbers and spits on his guests regularly. CNN doesn't even try anymore. And they all would kill 100 kittens if they could find another Scott Peterson distraction to keep them from even talking about high gas prices once a day for 3 min.41 seconds.

I love Keith Olbermann, but his format is so tired it's completely predictable. The only two guests he ever has on in his first half are Howie Fineman and the ultra-sedated Richard Wolffe.

All the networks are settings their hosts and shows up to run against and report [b]against[/b] the Democrats when they win big in '08. I figure it'll take less than one year for some jackass to call for the D.President's impeachment!

I cannot watch Cramer. Not even your 90 second clip. To call him abrasive is too minimal, too kind.

And yeah, where are Steph's numbers?
But why would they care about that? David Gregory's one of their own.

I still like Keith. Even with his few drawbacks, at least he gets out stories that most choose to ignore.

And he's funny. And we need funny.

Wen are you going to Face it you Blew it when you let Don Imus Go? I'm 48 and I watched MSNBC and MBC until you did what you did to Mr. Imus who has more class than anyone you have put in that time slot since. MSNBC has gon Way Down Hill since Dan has been the leader. He was a ok on the air person but he needs to give up running things! Before you lose every Viewer you have. When you get your minds back please email me and let me know so I can watch again.
