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

    Mitch, do u know the #’s on the 7pm FNC Martha MacCallum show and the 7pm Newsmax Greg Kelly show?


    • Bruce

      I don’t know Newsmax numbers, but MacCallum and Baier have been hemorrhaging viewers since the Election.

      Before the Election, Baier was averaging 3.2 M viewers. The week after the Election, Baier has been averaging 2.3 M. This timeslot is the complete opposite for CNN and MSNBC because both have increased 49% and 45% respectively.

      Although closer to primetime, MacCallum was never a big draw for Fox News. Before the Election, MacCallum was averaging 2.7 M viewers but the week after, barely 2 M. Again, both CNN and MSNBC have increased.

      If you’re a “bottom liner,” MacCallum and Baier have lost over 25% of their audience.


  3. Joe

    Wow. Get away from weekday cable news, people. It’s a waste of time and unhealthy for you and the country. Don’t you like music? Watch The Voice. To see a Monday episode below a 1 is sad. Yes, it did lead the night. But all shows could be stronger if people took a break from worthless cable news.

    btw – Freddie Highmore is so good on The Good Doctor. He’s worth watching the show just for him.
