Wednesday Ratings: CNN’s John King Beats MSNBC’s Al Sharpton In Demo

On Wednesday night, CNN’s John King topped MSNBC’s Al Sharpton in the demo. Sharpton brought in a mere 90k, but fared much better in total viewers, where he almost doubled King’s. Incidentally, CNN nixed King’s show, which will bid us adieu when this month comes to a close.

CNN’s Erin Burnett, too, brought in more viewers in the demo than MSNBC — Chris Matthews, to be specific. Similarly, Matthews had a strong lead in total viewers. Elsewhere, CNN maintained a lead over HLN throughout the night, but stayed below MSNBC in all other primetime slots.
