President Obama sworn in.

CNN, with Anderson Cooper leading the way, cruised to a Nielsen ratings victory for cable outlets on Monday’s Presidential Inauguration, according to the respected TVNEWSER  site.

“Whereas approximately 17 million people watched Obama’s address on CNN, MSNBC and Fox News in 2009, only around 7 million watched on those three channels in 2013,” noted the respected site.

The total day figures for the cable networks:

CNN: 1.923m total viewers, 657k adults 25-54

FNC: 1.104m total viewers, 227k adults 25-54

MSNBC: 1.095m total viewers, 354k adults 25-54.

Overall preliminary numbers (10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) show that the three major networks led all TV outlets by a sizable margin, with NBC the leader:

NBC: 5.08 million total viewers, 1.4 rating A25-54

ABC: 4.57 million total viewers, 1.1 rating A25-54.

CBS: 3.67 million total viewers, 1.0 rating A25-54. (from 9:30AM-4:35 PM)

    GET BACK TO WORK
    I see no need for anything other than a swearing in for a 2nd term president whether Republican or Democrat. Let’s save tens of millions of dollars and get back to work.

    WHERE’S LOVE FOR BO?
    Taking this data into consideration and remembering all the stories of obvious voter fraud coming out of the election, it makes you wonder if the right guy got sworn in. Where is the love for BO? Kind of odd if he won. Aside from that, the great unwashed masses continue to find the idea that the so called mainstream media are seriously biased towards the left and the credibility is pretty much gone now.
    The media news outlets on cable and Networks are in just as much trouble as the dead tree media. People are gravitating away from them in large numbers and between their biased content and the outdated business models, they will join the KC Star folks in the unemployment lines at some point. No consumer will mourn.
