I was really enjoying owning noted race pimp @rolandmartin when I ran across this at The Daily Caller.
MSNBC president Phil Griffin suggested journalists should investigate how the ratings for Megyn Kelly’s new 9 p.m. show on Fox News shot up on its second night after debuting behind MSNBC.
When Kelly’s new show debuted Monday on Fox News, her competitor Rachel Maddow held her own in the ratings, and even topped Kelly in the key 25-54 demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research. But on Tuesday night, it wasn’t even close with Fox News dominating the rest of cable news.
Griffin complained about the jump in an interview Friday with TVNewser’s Alex Weprin.
“Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic, on the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, we either tied or beat them in those hours,” Griffin said. “Tuesday — you guys should be doing some investigations — I have never seen it in all my years of cable, same overnight, same everything, and they doubled their ratings in a day? It is impossible.”
Allow me to explain something to Phil Griffin. First thing is this Phil. MSNBS sucks, and has been getting its tail kicked by Fox in the ratings for a long time now. Second Phil, lots of men consider Megyn Kelly hot, while Rachel Maddow is, well, how should I put this delicately? She is Chris Hayes more masculine sister. Third Phil, and this is the most important thing. Megyn Kelly is smart, tough, and entertaining. Maddow? Well she is the opposite of those three things. Also Phil, there is another possible explanation. Maybe Maddow’s audience was out buying more aluminium foil, those hats are not going to make themselves now are they Phil? Or, maybe Maddow’s audience was online trying to enroll in Obamacare? Lord knows that is not going too well. Lastly Phil, the most likely explanation is that you are a whiny little man who refuses to accept that your network, and I use that term loosely, is simply unwatchable. Face it Phil, the only thing MSNBS has going for it is the lovely Tamron Hall, who I have a shameless crush on, even if she is a Liberal
Here is an idea Phil, hire a genuine Conservative or two, no Phil not Morning Joe, or Michael Steele I said a genuine Conservative, and give them a show. You will see better ratings Phil trust me. See Phil, you are targeting and audience that is not very big. Face it Phil how many Moonbats are there, so your base audience is not great. You need to expand to appeal Phil, targeting malcontents is a recipe for failure.
Oh, one more thing Phil, this advice is free, but, if you want to show some thanks, tell Tamron Hall to call me, just sayin’ Phil.
