More People Watch Paint Dry Than Watch MSNBC
- This is a storyline we’ve discussed before, last year. It showed that CNN generally finishes 2nd place on cable during these hours, while MSNBC is fourth, and sometimes even 5th (behind fellow NBCU network CNBC). While MSNBC has far surpassed CNN during the prime time, and even pre-prime time hours, the dayside ratings are still low, despite occasional line-up shuffling. Also, it should be noted, Fox News is far and away in first place in every category.
