Your 'Morning Joe' is Decaf




Yesterday, Inside Cable News published the above chart that compared Morning Joe's ratings to those of Imus in the Morning.
To quote an alleged insider, “Joe would certainly know what it’s like not to have a ‘whole lot of people’ watching, much less anyone tuning into his show – test patterns rate higher.”
Ouch!

Poor, poor, pitiful Joe...

Poor Joe actually had a pretty good show when he was on at night...

I love that MSNBC caved to a threatened boycott, and ended up with a REAL boycott from their outraged viewers. I wonder how the sponsors are supporting them now :)

All,

Check out Fake Imus a whole bunch of Fakes are turning up. Fake Barbara Walters is giving Imus practices questions.

I would rather Fake it with Fake Imus then watch Morning Joe...Morning Joe gives me heartburn...you know gas.

I occasionally caught Joe's old show, and I will admit that it was a lot better than his new project. And leave it to MSNBC to confuse a real boycott with a threatened one, LOL.

Incidentally, Fake Imus is HILARIOUS. I was worried about him, and I'm really excited that he's back.

I love this - Tuesday's numbers from Inside Cable News blog:

Morning programs P2+ (25-54)
FOX & Friends – 956,000 viewers (357,000)
American Morning- 374,000 viewers (135,000)
Morning Joe – 177,000 viewers (a scratch with 33,000)
Robin & Co. – 233,000 viewers (102,000)

Poor ole Joe...

Too bad RFD-TV ain't on cable, or soon THEY too would be kickin' Joe's ass...


(providing, of course, that Imus does indeed sign on with RFD)

You gotta love those numbers.

And even though he would probably beat Joe there, I'm hoping that Imus doesn't go to RFD. More on that later. But we'll see.

College Girl,

I am not against RFDTV, I think it could be one of maybe two network outlets that could run the New Imus program. I need to hear it from a better source then the NYT. It isn't like they are a big time Imus Fan Base.
