    Do you have Player Select at 8 PM on Disney XD? Thanks.


  2. 69 Road Runner

    Da Bears really stunk it up last night on MNF. Maybe the ratings for Emergency Call aka Rescue 911 would be better if it was hosted by William Shatner.


    • Destiny

      Nah I think the messed up scheduling because of Coronavirus has depressed the ratings for a lot of television shows on broadcast. The numbers you see on Fox for their shows for example probably won’t be the most horrific you see this season. We’re probably in for some truly awful ratings when some shows return in the new year.


  3. Destiny

    Were the Hannity & Carlson numbers from Trump campaign coverage? I’m looking forward to watching the election results on Tuesday. I’ll probably watch on Fox News because the CNN anchors make me cringe. Back in 2016 some of the “neutral”(lol) staff on CNN were visibly upset when it was clear Trump had won. Fox News were fair when it came to calling states based on current results while CNN bordered ridiculous not calling clear Republican wins sooner.


    • John

      Take your partisan political discussions elsewhere, please. No one reading this site for ratings news is interested in your “Hot Takes” on voting or candidates.


      • Nick

        Thank you! The two folks above are both insufferable. Trump supporters are supposed to be the “silent majority,” and yet they never stfu.


        • Bruce

          Yet…Destiny isn’t a Trump supporter. Immediately and instinctively labeling someone you don’t know is a sign of weakness and ignorance.


      • Billy

        John, take yourself elsewhere and stay there forever.


      • Scott

        I’m on this site, and I dont mind the “hot take” that was posted. I find it quite interesting that the fake news CNN ratings have deteriorated so rapidly over the last several years. The comment you addressed probably has quite a bit to do with it.


    • ntscuser

      If you ask me that’s a good reason to watch on CNN.”Boo-Hoo, we thought we’d won but we’ve lost!” 🙂


      • 69 Road Runner

        I was flipping around the channels late that night in 2016. Martha Raddatz from ABC was basically sobbing and whimpering at the news desk.


    • Bruce

      For about a week after the 2016 election, I was absolutely obsessed with the YouTube compilation-videos of the “Media Meltdown.” It was fun!! I doubt the zealots will cry again this year but probably agitate and encourage destroying something. “If the left can’t run it, they’ll ruin it.” —Laura Ingraham


    • Bruce

      The Hannity & Carlson…(I almost wrote “Colmes”)…numbers were NOT coverage of Trump rallies. Trump did his 3 rallies early in the day to get back to the White House for Amy Coney Barrett’s ceremony.

      But you’re right…6 and 7 million viewers for both shows! That’s stellar!


    • Bruce

      According to the transcript…ha-ha…Amy Coney Barrett’s ceremony was at 9:06 P.M. EDT, so this accounts for Hannity’s high numbers. Also, from what I’ve read, only FNC aired the ceremony. I guess a black Justice on the Supreme Court administering an oath to a Soccer Mom isn’t newsworthy on State News.

  4. Riff

    Did CBS seriously finish behind the CW at 9:00?

    Seriously?

    Well, CBS, since 3rd place was such a no-no to you, enjoy 14th.


  5. Can anyone steer me to how to see ratings for a particular cable show over a period of weeks, or months, or years?


    • Bruce

      It would depend on the show and if somebody feels like posting & updating numbers. Some contributors to Wiki maintain ratings & viewers for shows.


  6. BigDDave

    I don’t partake in any mainstream media news shows but it appears that no one watches CNN. And even more hilarious more “people” watch the WWE than MSNBC or CNN? hahah
