Ok....so who would watch MSNBC HD after the olympics if they added it?...sounds like many said it sucked anyway. I have never looked at the channel nor will I....guess im in the minority here cause i dont see an advantage in adding it. I am sports fan and watch olympics only in passing....oh well, i know that many on here would rather D* add another HD channel over MSNBC...Where does MSNBC rank in the nielsons?...I mean, i know some of you want the channel and others just more HD, guess for me, it doesnt appeal....but i hope u get to see that one game for sure!!

I never watch the 24/7 news networks unless something huge has happened. The hockey games on MSNBC is basically the only thing I plan to watch on those channels.

This is entirely about the Olympics. Whether people like MSNBC or not(and I'm sure many people who are upset about this, don't), it's pretty much a guarantee that MSNBC will be added in HD for their regular programming once D12 is active. D* had at least nine months if not more to make sure that as the "HD Leader" and the "Sports Leader" they would carry all their Olympic coverage was in HD. It seems like every other television provider made strides to do this. DirecTV didn't.

I usually watch CNN but when they get too repetitive like they often do I switch it to MSNBC. Apparently its not that great though, in the daytime it looks like CNBC with all the extra graphs and stuff.

I bet more Americans watch Springer than watch PBS. Says more about the intelligence of the American people than anything else. Keep it dumb, simple and salacious and more people watch.


And witness the scurge of reality shows. But back to whether anyone would watch after the Olympics the numbers I'm looking at are CNN and MSNBC. MSNBC appears about even with CNN and CNN is HD and has advantage by being in cheaper packages. So by numbers alone I'd say the poster has proven the point that MSNBC should be HD. :)

No No No you have it all backwards....HD actually makes the picture Clearer, not blurrier....that cant be a good thing for them....stay blurry. :)

Shouldnt u be fixing a pothole that delays a race leading to its lowest rating since 1991....what rubes.


That's all you've got?:lol:

Just so you have all of the facts:

TV Ratings for Daytona 500 down: The 2010 Daytona 500 earned a fast national rating of 7.7/16 (13.3 million viewers) yesterday for a race that was crippled by two lengthy delays for track repair. Yesterday's 7.7/16 is down -16% compared to last year's 9.2/19 and ranks as the lowest-rated Daytona 500 since 1991's 7.6/20 on CBS. The two track delays were excluded from the rating - Nielsen treats them similarly to a baseball rain delay - but the delays obviously had a sizable impact on the rating as the race's momentum was twice stopped cold. The two delays combined averaged a 6.5/14, a -16% decline versus the 7.7/16 for live racing.
More people watched at least some of this year's Daytona 500 than last year's, but because the two delays torpedoed the momentum of the race the average viewer spent less time with the Daytona 500 this year, resulting in the lower average rating and average viewership. Nielsen estimates that 29.8 million Americans watched at least some of this year's Daytona 500, a +14% gain over last year's 26.2 million.
In the 31-year history of flag-to-flag coverage of the Daytona 500, there have been two previous runnings that were delayed and then re-started, and both suffered sizable ratings decreases versus prior years. The 1995 running was delayed over two hours by rain, then re-started, and the result was a -19% decline versus prior year (7.8 vs. 9.6). The 2003 edition on FOX was also delayed by rain, then re-started and not run to the full 500 miles. That race rated -10% lower than the 2002 running on NBC (9.8 vs. 10.9). Yesterday's -16% decline, while substantial, is in-line with past interrupted Daytonas.
There was some good news from some important Southeastern markets. Rating were up +11% in Atlanta (11.0 vs. 9.9) and +8% in Charlotte (16.8 vs. 15.6), arguably the two most important NASCAR markets. Within the core region ratings were also up in Norfolk (+7%, 12.2 vs. 11.4) and Ft. Myers (+12%, 10.0 vs. 8.9). The core markets are particularly important this year as they should be the most aware of this year's changes to the rules and broadcast schedule.(FOX), for more TV Ratings, see my 2010 TV Ratings page, Daytona 500 TV Ratings for 2007 was a 10.2/20 rating with 17.8 million viewers.(2-16-2010)

Just so u have all the facts...
the 29 million is avg audience, thats people that watched 6+ minutes....thats NOT the # that commercial $$ are based on...this is what its based on:

Maybe if u watched foxnews u would be smart enough to know that: :P

Daytona 500 Draws Lowest Rating Since 1991
The Winter Olympics and massive delays combined to drag down the ratings for the Daytona 500.

The race portion of the 2010 Daytona 500, won by Jamie McMurray, drew a 7.7/16 fast-national rating and 13.3 million viewers on FOX Sunday -- down 16% in ratings and 17% in viewers from last year (9.2, 16.0 mil), and down 25% in ratings and viewership from 2008 (10.2/20, 17.8 mil).

This marks the lowest rated Daytona 500 since 1991 (7.6, CBS), and the least-viewed since 2000 (12.9 mil, CBS).

Overall, Sunday's race ranks as the fourth-lowest rated Daytona 500 since at least '74.

The race was marred by over two hours of delays, stemming from damage to the track at Daytona International Speedway. Coverage of the delays was not included in the ratings released by Nielsen.

http://sportsmediawa...ting-since.html


Captian obvious here. this is obvious when there are red flags/delays in the programming, none the less 2 in the race! Get down to the numbers and more people watched this one overall than last year which is a big improvement in my book esp. when you consider the olympics going on at this same time.
Its a fact that delays cause people to lose interest and in turn effect the overall ratings, and when you throw in 2 its a catastrophe.


......dont you have a dissapointing/choking fball team to worry about?

These numbers conclusively prove that clueless republican lemmings love Faux News.


Guys, there's not supposed to be any political ranting here.

Not cool to call people names just because of their political affiliations either. :icon_lame
