Wednesday Cable Ratings: Ed Schultz Last in Demo for All Cable News

With just 64K viewers in the 25-54 demo Wednesday afternoon, The Ed Show on MSNBC was the lowest-rated show across all of cable news. At 436K in the demo, Fox’s #1 The O’Reilly Factor had nearly seven times the viewers that Ed Schultz did.

In total viewers, Schultz came in third place in his 5 p.m. time slot with 496K, behind Fox’s The Five (2.074M) and CNN’s The Situation Room (670K) but ahead of HLN’s Forensic Files (116K)
