  1. Today’s oops — I’ve read that line or a variation thereof before, in the last week or so, and it wasn’t a quote from Putin. IIRC, it was attributed to a U.S. military person, not Denzel Washington.

    • I asked about this a few weeks ago on twitter and they told me they lost their source for cablenews ratings. They expressed some notion of coming up with a new source but so far, they haven’t.

      • TY for the update.

        What I liked about them — as opposed to TVNewser — was that it was much easier to track multiple days — whether that be two consecutive days or an entire week.

        For example,
        How much did Trevor Noah’s or Stephen Colbert’s ratings drop on their second airings after the premieres?
        How bad were Chuck Todd’s ratings for his first week?
        How many days in a row did Megyn Kelly finish #1 in the demo for all of cable news?

        Yes, I plead guilty to being a bit of a ratings junky. We retirees have too much free time on our hands. 😊

  2. Actually I watch the little watched Bloomberg show because I’ve always liked the pair and Bloomberg makes the show available three times in the evening. It just went from 30 to 60 minutes a week or so ago.

  3. Today’s most popular links:
    5 threatens to pull
    4 he’s ‘given up’
    3 looking to simulcast
    2 oops
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 $5K for The Five.

    • Is CNN still on the air? Last I checked it was fuzz and static. Which would probably have higher ratings.
