‘Lean Backward’: Chris Hayes has a ratings sad; Twitter points and snickers

Boy, does it smart! MSNBC’s ratings are down and Chris Hayes is at the helm of the sinking ship.

More from the Free Beacon:

The April debut of All In with Chris Hayes on MSNBC was a dud, down 18 percent in total viewers compared to last year’s program in the 8 p.m. slot, The Ed Show.

MSNBC’s 9 p.m. program, The Rachel Maddow Show, while down 7 percent from April 2012, drew 213,000 more viewers than All In, according to the newly released ratings for April 2013.

Twitter users gasp for breath, while pointing and snickering at the smug-tastic Hayes.

Yes, remember this?

Stop! Our aching sides!

Not squeeing so much now, are you journos?

Ah, the stolen bike. Memories!

This Twitter user offers up a possible reason for the low ratings. Besides, you know, the insufferable arrogance.

Huh. Perhaps Mr. Hayes’ revolting Memorial Day revelation about how he is uncomfortable calling our fallen soldiers heroes didn’t go over so well.

Fancy that.

    Heheheh, I guess that whole looking like Maddow didn’t really fool any of MSNBC’s viewers (either of them).

    • CDUB

      MSNBC viewers are no Mas (no more in English) The network is so hard left viewers cant stand it. Hey Comcast, this is your network and not doing so well, what are you going to do to reach the American Public, sure seems to be working for Evil Fox………… Check out their ratings………..

  • twinx

    Geez, Hayes, you and Rachel should mix it up more. Trade suits and glasses or SOMETHING!

    • GW

      They did. You just couldn’t tell.

  • Steve_J

    Don’t put it all on Chrissie, Josie Scarborough is doing all he can to help sink the ratings.

    Time for MSNBC to put their number one star in the prime spot…Al Sharpton.

    Hey Al! You deserve it. You’re the best asset NBC has.
    Why not?

    Are they dissin’ you?? Don’t take it.

    Maybe if George Bush wasn’t wrecking the economy, MSNBC’s ratings would be better!!
    Did I sound liberal enough? I blamed Bush and everything.

  • grais

    Maybe I’m just too old, but to me “All In” means “Tired,” “Spent,” “Beat,” and even “Bushed.”

    • Billie Slash

      Exactly. Just what Chris Hayes’ moronic show has become….

    Hey, Chris, take a queue from FOX, and Ed “Sargent” Schultz. See if
    you can get into a twitter pissing match with Ann Coulter.

  • NCRelite

    PMSNBC doesn’t need another square whitebread libster, they already have richard maddow

  • TRONRADIO

    I affectionately refer to Chris Hayes as ‘the little germ’ because he just looks like one. And apparently, his ‘germness’ as infected MSNBC in a big way. Way to go, Germ!

  • syvyn11

    If I were big fat Ed and MSNBC and Phil Griffith asked me to come back to the 8pm hour, I would laugh in his face.

    But Ed (sgt.) Schultz will drop to his knees and kiss Phil on the feet for his old time slot back.

    libs, they have no standards.

    Can’t blame it all on Maddow’s little brother. Have you seen MSNBC’s ratings lately? http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/the-scoreboard-tuesday-april-30_b177763

    Martin Bashir only got 58,000 in the demo.

  • TocksNedlog

    Maddow’s ratings are only down 7 percent?

    Just imagine all of the people, every night when the Rachel Maddow show comes on, that are saying, “Hey, didn’t we just watch this girl?”

    • Lurker

      Only down 7% on one of the biggest month for news reporting? LOL

    Maddow’s ratings are only down 7 percent?

    I really don’t understand the guy’s Twitter background regarding the 1%. Does MSNBC pay minimum wage to its on-air people?

    All the posts are excellent, but Landon kills it again with “I thought @chrislhayes would get ok ratings at first, just for circus-freak appeal of being Maddow’s genderless fetus”

    Bravissimo, Landon. BRAVISSIMO!!

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    It takes a special kind of loser to get 18% less viewers than the guy he replaced who was replaced because he didn’t have enough viewers.

    When your ratings share starts with a “.0” , you may want to reconsider that whole tele-journalist thing . . . ALTHOUGH . . . I hear they may still be looking for someone in BISMARK!!!!!

    Another Mr. Milquetoast, along with A. Colmes. Spineless, bloodless, brainless.

  • daveofdenver

    MSNBC keeps turning up the pressure on the left-wing Gun Control campaign, and the citizens cooled off on that right around the moment 2 bombs went off in Boston and probably cooled even further when they turned out to be Muslim extremists. I’d say MSNBC is gonna end up with only an audience of far left extremists after another month of this. All Maddow and Hayes ever discuss is Bush’s run up to Iraq, and they lace every story with half truths, even further isolating rational open minded viewers like me.

  • BAW

    Exactly why the left doesn’t like capitalism, people won’t buy what they’re selling. Progressive talk radio couldn’t make in a free market. But since they’re willing to lose money just to keep their ideology on cable they think it’s legitimate. I’m not buying that either.

    Memo to Snot Nosed Punk, Hayes:

    When you punch numerous holes south of the water line and the ship develops a noticeable list to Port. STOP PUNCHING HOLES!!!

    I also know you won’t pay attention. So, carry on!

    i actually dont understand how anyone can watch Fox or MSNBC. You work all day and then you come home and watch political shows all night. no sir, not for me.

    Gay guy: hero for everyone, all over, in all time zones, for everyone, in history, all the time, in the entire history of the universe of everything, super hero in fact.

    Soldiers: nah

    Einstein: not really

    Gay guy: immensely brave proud super hero for all kids to look up to, but only in a sexual way if they feel like it.

  • RevDrEBuzz

    Remember the David Susskind Show, where liberals would sit around a talk softly of important topics?

    Yeah, no one watched that either.

  • QAX3kFmH

    he has such a smug face

  • June Clinkenbeard

    Chrissie has “problems” but MSNBC won’t notice or care. Numbers are hard! Besides he still has a ways to go before he sucks as hard as Erin Burnett. Her ratings are delicious.

  • Mike Peterson

    People started seeing MSNBC for what it really is…a joke. So I say read The Onion, thats were MSNBC gets there facts.

    You mean Chris Hayes isn’t Rachel Maddow’s transgender persona??? Or the other way around. I’m so confused!!!

  • Littlehale

    Prissy Chrissy wants to live in an America that rewards the effete and demeans the virile. He’s found asylum at MSNBC, but he shouldn’t expect America to follow him there.
