They’ve done it again: Another week of record low ratings for Olbermann, Maddow and Schultz

by editor on February 11, 2010

Sssssh! Don't wake up Keith Olbermann's last viewer.

Just when you start to think MSNBC can’t sink any lower in the ratings, those lunatic liberals surprise you by doing it again.

To put it bluntly, the week of February 1 – 5 was an unmitigated disaster at MSNBC.

Schultz’ total audience for the week was only 2,402,000 viewers. Maddow’s total viewers for a full week fell under 4,000,000 for the first time (3,922,000).

On top of that, Keith Olbermann’s audience, which once neared 1,500,000 viewers per night, fell under 1,000,000 viewers four of the five nights.

In an effort to demonstrate our commitment to a greener world, we hereby request that MSNBC’s last viewer turn out the lights on their way out the door.

Note the following from Steve Krakauer at Mediaite.com: Red Eye Resurgence: More Demo Viewers Watch Fox At 3am Than CNN at 8pm

What does that say about OverlyDouched, Maddow, et al.?

This is great news, keep going down a few few thousand viewers at a time. Little by little, bit by bit, like water slowly going down the drain. I want this to take time, this needs to be a slow, tourturous death. Bleed them out slowly. Yeah baby.

I watched Olberman the other night to see his ignorance for myself….What a putz. How can he even be paid for that.

He was ok on SportCenter back in the day because he did the late show, & his smarta$$ routine worked in that setting. He was funny really, but that was a long time ago. These days, he’s just as very angry person who goes on live television & projects his anger. He is lashing out in every direction, he just gets worse everyday.

Seems their ratings are sliding along with Obama’s. Coincidence? Or is it that “regular” people are starting to see through their bullshit?

Keith….please take your finger and stick it where the sun don’t shine. The “Gong Show!” had better ratings than Matthews, Schultz, Olbermann, Schuster combined!

There is no room for his finger because his head is jammed up there.

I think these slides in ratings are definitely caused by Global Warming.

Glenn Beck made that very point on the Bold Fresh tour event when I caught it in a theater.

Wow, Tonite Maddow lost her usual rant train of thought, couldn’t find the crib notes on her hand and had to back up her teleprompter LIVE. It was PRICELESS! :-)

As long as I get to see Olympic hockey, I’ll be happy. I would expect that the NBC family of channels sould be cranking out Olympic coverage. NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, USA, SciFi, & there are some I must be missing. Not too mention the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is going on Monday & Tuesday, I love seeing the doggies.
