Thursday Ratings: Ed Schultz Beats Anderson Cooper In Demo, Doubles In Total Viewers

MSNBC’s Ed Schultz had a good Thursday night, topping CNN’s Anderson Cooper in the demo at 8 p.m. Moreover, Schultz just about doubled Cooper in total viewers. And Cooper was their best show, ratings wise, of the night. MSNBC’s highest-rated time slot of the night went to Rachel Maddow (in both demo and total viewers).

Happy weekend!
