Thursday Ratings: Schultz Beats CNN And HLN In Total Viewers And Demo Combined

On Thursday evening, during the 8 p.m. hour, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz beat CNN and HLN’s programming in both combined total viewers and combined demo ratings.

In the key 25-54 demo, Schultz racked up 312k viewers, which is more than the demo viewership of CNN’s Anderson Cooper (133k) and HLN’s Nancy Grace (141k) combined.

In total viewership, Schultz drew 1,192,000 which, again, is more than the total viewership of CNN’s Cooper (684k) and Grace (396k) combined.
