Thursday Ratings: Ed Schultz Scores Higher In Demo/Total Viewers Than CNN/HLN Combined At 8PM

Ed Schultz‘s The Ed Show put up some impressive numbers Thursday, topping both CNN and HLN combined in the demo and total viewers. Schultz averaged 230,000 demo viewers, which was more than Anderson Cooper and Nancy Grace‘s respective programs put together. Schultz has been a tour-de-force at the network with his steadily strong 8pm slot ratings performance for MSNBC over the past couple of months.
