Monday Cable News: Rachel Maddow Destroys Sean Hannity for MSNBC’s Only Win of the Night


MSNBC is having problems, you know.

Aside from Rachel Maddow, they can’t seem to get everyone on the same page about Israel and Hamas and Gaza.

Maddow scored a huge victory over Sean Hannity on Monday night. With 2.3 million total viewers, she was up 600K over Hannity.

But the rest of the MSNBC line up fell to Fox News. Nicolle Wallace won her 4pm spot on MSNBC, and then it was downhill until Maddow at 9pm. Ari Melber did the best in that group but still fell short of Fox by about 500,000 viewers.
