    Isn’t the 10 pm episode of What Would You Do? the special, and not the 9 pm episode?

    Something boosted MSNBC.


    • Bruce

      It was the Downplay Hoax. Normally (Monday-Friday), MSNBC averages 23.5 M viewers per 24-hour day but got a bump of 5.8 M to 29.3 M on this chart. FNC also bumped 3.6 M as well as CNN with 806 K.

      Outside of Primetime, I didn’t notice any significant bumps on MSNBC for a Tuesday. In fact, MSNBC lost viewers during its daytime hours. For example, on Tuesdays at 5 PM, MSNBC normally averages 1.7 M viewers but their 5 PM show didn’t even make this Top-150 chart. FNC and CNN also lost a few hundred thousand at 5 PM but I don’t see anything listed to have drawn away viewers.

      From 6-11 PM, however, MSNBC began bumping its averages for a total of 3.93 M more viewers:

      6 PM (+ 146 K)
      7 PM (+ 179 K)
      8 PM (+ 295 K)
      9 PM (+ 1.98 M)
      10 PM (+ 1.03 M)
      11 PM (+ 302 K)

      So, the Downplay Hoax on Primetime happened on MSNBC.
