Cable Rating Show FNC Up, CNN Down and MSNBC With a Lifeline
RatingsIt looks like CNN's axing of Piers Morgan Live, which lost around have of its audience from the same time last year, won't help the rest of CNN's primetime lineup. Anderson Cooper at 8PM dropped 47% in overall audience and Erin Burnett's Outfront dropped 39%. If CNN is all about "attitude and take" obviously viewers aren't buying. At the same time, FNC is seeing a ratings increase The O'Reilly Factor is still ahead of the pack and jumped 3% in overall audience and The Kelly File increased by 23% in overall audience. Over at MSNBC, The Rachel Maddow Show is the top draw, but the show's overall audience is flat, while Hardball with Chris Matthews was up 24% in overall audience. Rating comparisons are from February to February.
