Chris Matthews Less Appealing to Young Viewers than Wallpaper


Chris Matthews’ Hardball is struggling among overall viewers and is well behind Fox’s Greta Van Susteren, but still well ahead of CNN’s Erin Burnett, not to mention HLN.

But among viewers 18-54, the desired demographic of advertisers, Chris Matthews falls miserably to last place. Not only do younger viewers prefer Greta Van Susteren over Matthews by even higher margins than overall viewers (3.5 over 2.4), but they would rather watch CNN and even HLN than Hardball.

Basically viewers in the demo would rather watch wallpaper than Chris Matthews. That’s a problem for MSNBC, which has terrible ratings, but tries to assure advertisers that at least it’s doing well in the demo.

Unfortunately their signature personalities other than Matthews are a formerly obese racist with a giant head, an awkward kid who claims to be Frank Sinatra’s love child but is probably just the spawn of Woody Allen, a verbose and anti-semitic Nation editor… and Rachel Maddow.

And a guy as popular with anyone under 54 as wallpaper.

    Weird…I thought they went down the same time as Air America.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      only in the sense that no one is watching

      • Gee

    Every time I see that face I don’t get a tingly feeling up my leg. I get a queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach

    I got tired of him foaming at the mouth and felt as if I was getting a shower by listening to him and he rarely made any sense so now I know others feel the same about him.

    Dear Mr. Greenfield:
    Just a brief note to say I think you’re among the top journalists representing the truth and sanity party. I love your work.
    God bless.

    • Daniel Greenfield

      thank you John

      Ditto. Greenfield has become the intellectual voice of the conservative movement in the US.. Thank God for an articulate and intelligent spokesman for a culture under attack.

      “Clean” too! a la Joe Biden lol
