How Many Are Watching Network Morning "News"

I know we are in the middle of sweeps (hence all the special investigation stories and giveaways) let's take a look at the network morning news program ratings from last week:


Broadcast Morning News Shows Weekly Average Ratings (week of February 13, 2012)
NBC: Today 5.61 million total viewers; 2.1/14 and 2.51 million A25-54
ABC: GMA 5.00 million total viewers; 1.7/12 and 2.08 million A25-54
CBS: This Morning 2.77 million total viewers; 0.9/7 and 1.14 million A25-54

"is watching" Really?

I can see where Today would pull better numbers than GMA. ABC's morning show dedicates large amounts of on-air time to pop culture. Some, but not all, Americans are interested in news from Hollywood. CBS This Morning needs to take notes because, frankly, their anchors aren't very friendly or welcoming.

Thank you! I can't stand GMA's format, and I not old enough to watch CBS so the ratings are not surprising.

It must have been spectacular at the IHOP this morning. Suares, Eady, and Courtney all together for a good cause.

Wow! I didn't realize that Suares' lead-in really helps the Today Show's ratings. I hope she gets paid well for that. :)

Courtney, Suares, and Eady all on the menu? I'll take one of each!

I'll say this, the female morning anchors in this city are beautiful! Mallory and Wendy at 4, Ashley and Alyse at 11, and Alyson at 7. Say what you want about their shows but they rock in the looks department.

LOVE FOX!!!!!!!! Fair and Balanced"

Since there are two very liberal franchises, MNBC and CNN, I wish there was a second "Fair and Balanced" franchise, like Fox, so there could be competition for presenting the news fairly Love Fox and the foxy female anchors!

I really don't think morning ratings will change. They are pretty much set with minor movement.

What about the 5:00 and the 6:00? Will THV win either of those?

You are so right, 1:58. The Fox on the box in my livingroom is the best. Why? The best intelligent adult conversation on TV

i expect Craig to move to the AM and THV to have a new 10p anchor. Close?

Craig isn't going anywhere. Can't imagine Tom and Craig on the same show. Two strong personalities that would clash.

Or it could be the best thing ever. Like a pay-per-view cage match we get to watch for free.

Good one, but I picture the Craig and Tom show going down more like the gang fight from The Legend of Ron Burgandy.

Craig O' Burgundy: Boy, that escalated quickly... I mean, that really got out of hand fast.
Tom "Brick" Brannon: It jumped up a notch.
Craig O' Burgundy: It did, didn't it?
Tom "Brick" Brannon: Yeah, I stabbed a man in the heart.
Craig O' Burgundy: I saw that. Brick killed a guy. Did you throw a trident?
Tom "Brick" Brannon: Yeah, there were horses, and a man on fire, and I killed a guy with a trident.
Craig O'Burgundy: Brick, I've been meaning to talk to you about that. You should find yourself a safehouse or a relative close by. Lay low for a while, because you're probably wanted for murder.

Can't stand the endless lines of people yelling & holding signs to Grandma in Hattiesburg, MS - like anyone cares.

All the while, a weather man is yelling over the crowd with a national forecast. It means nothing since you get your local 10-second snippet from the station anyway. The last thing I want to hear when I wake up are people yelling.

Click.

THV Sales team touting the Craig move to the AM show by May. Dawn may be coming with him. They were trying to sell it to me today.

KTHV needs to ditch Tom and Craig and add another chick to the morning crew. Give us the news, weather, some entertainment and lots of leg and we are happy. Keep the cat if it keeps the girls happy other than that, he can go too. I think the traffic report could be phoned in instead of the cops actually coming down to the studio for all of 20 seconds of "no traffic accidents" or "one accident on blah blah highway". They could just scroll it at the bottom of the screen. If they bring Craig to the morning show then I will have to watch 4 or 7.

1:31, if somebody really told you that then they are blowing smoke. If they didn't tell you that and you are trying to stir the pot, then a BS comment could end up costing innocent sales people a job. Sleep well tonight.

Fox has some hot chicks to impart the propaganda to the masses. But what's up with Bill Kristol who moves his mouth but never un-clenches his teeth? And Chris Wallace always looks like he just bit into a lemon. Throw in Palin & Huckabee - what a comedy of errors.

Of course, Brokaw was on NBC for centuries with his mouth full of rocks. I don't know how these clowns got their jobs.
