Ratings At A Glance- Week of December 15, 2008

Ratings for the week DECEMBER 15 - 19, 2008

Adults 25-54

Adults 25-54
Adults 25-54

Last week was HLN's (formerly Headline News) week in the ratings. In the Adults 25 - 54 demographic, HLN takes the 8PM and 10PM timeslots. They had the highest demo rating all five nights at 8PM and the highest demo ratings two times (Monday & Wednesday) during the 10PM timeslot. During the 9PM hour, they dropped to fourth.

CNN did not fair as well, with fourth place all week during the 8PM hour, mostly third place at 9PM and 10PM. Tuesday night was the only bright spot of the week with a second place rating at 9PM and a first place rating during the 10PM hour.

FOX found themselves in second place at 8PM and 10PM. They were consistently in first place at 9PM. During the 10PM hour, they came in first two times (Thursday and Friday nights).

For the second week in a row, MSNBC did not win any timeslots in the demo during primetime. They were consistently third at 8PM. At 9PM on most nights, they had the second highest demo rating (except for Tuesday night when they slipped to third). 10PM found MSNBC in fourth all five nights.

CNN better do something like yesterday with
the 7, 8 & 9 pm hours. Lou Dobbs and Campbell
Brown are just not bringing in viewers. No to
mention Larry King's program that is just plain
bad these days.CNN get a clue pov and opinion
journalism is so yesterday. Nobody cares about
Gov Blago, so please stop trying to tie him to
Obama and his aides. And please stop with the
Sarah Palin and Joe the plumber junk. Cover stories
that people care about. If any the the suits at CNN
had half a brain TJ Holmes would have a prime
time hour.
