Monday cable ratings were not unlike every Monday.
At 9pm MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow easily beat Hannity by 400,000 viewers. At 10pm, Lawrence O’Donnell took Greg Gutfeld.
The Maddow-O’Donnell combo on Monday continues to play a winning hand. They also sweep when there’s a big actual news story.
The rest of prime went to Fox News over MSNBC. I hate to say it but Chris Hayes and Joy Reid have have the weakest numbers even if their shows are eminently watchable.
Jesse Watters on Fox had th highest key demo numbers of the night. I guess his audience dug it when he declared last week that Trump looked “hard” in his mugshot. Watters admonished his fans that was also straight. I just read these things, I have no idea what is going on there.
MSNBC needs Maddow more and more. Next week I’m sure we’ll see her on September 6th for the group arraignment in Atlanta.
