Sanders’s MSNBC Show TANKS, Draws Fewer Than Acosta, Cheaters, Diners

May 12th, 2022 10:48 AM

Former Biden administration official Symone Sanders debuted her eponymous MSNBC show on Saturday and, like most things with MSNBC (or CNN), the ratings were pitiful. Despite an interview with First Lady Jill Biden, Nielsen Media Research said her show drew only 361,000 viewers at 4:00 p.m. Eastern and only 29,000 in the key 25-54 demographic, pulling down the time slot by 26 percent year to…

Acosta BOMBS, Loses to Hallmark Movie, Vanderpump, Ray Romano

January 27th, 2022 7:08 PM

Following New Day co-host Brianna Keilar’s spectacularly bad week hosting CNN’s poisonously partisan Democracy in Peril special, carnival barker Jim Acosta received his chance to audition for the primetime slot formerly held by Chris Cuomo and, through three days, Acosta did even worse. Among the shows he lost to, Acosta fell behind a Hallmark movie, History’s Forged in…

October 28th, 2021 6:49 PM

Yes, you read that headline correctly.

July 19th, 2018 1:10 AM
The History Channel’s fictional drama Six provides a darker, more nuanced look into the personal and professional lives of SEAL Team Six operators. Although the show clearly displays the SEALs expertly using weapons in the field, there seems to be one place the show won’t accept them: in the home. In the dangerous world the show paints for us, the fact that they don’t want…

History Channel Star Comes Out as Conservative, Creates Ad for Rubio

June 24th, 2015 3:01 PM
The liberal media spend an inordinate amount of time fawning over Hollywood actors and reality stars who come out in support of liberal politicians and causes. They are less interested in those who embrace conservative beliefs and issues. The most recent example of this is a Marco Rubio endorsement ad by Rick Harrison of the History Channel’s hit reality show, Pawn Stars.

Historically Illiterate Salon: JFK's Assassination Is 'a Monument to R

July 25th, 2014 4:14 PM
In a historically illiterate Salon piece, writer Heather Digby Parton argued that “right-wing hatred” of John F. Kennedy ultimately led to his death, and that a climate of hate is once again growing because of the right’s reaction to President Obama. Of course, the entire premise of Parton’s piece is false because JFK was not assassinated by any crazy ‘gun nut…

'Vikings' Portrays Crucifixion as Normal Church Punishment for Apostat

April 4th, 2014 9:55 AM
Your humble correspondent is a fan of the History Channel show, "Vikings." However, its historical accuracy leaves something to be desired to the extent that a week ago I posted a thread at IMDB, Things I Learned While Watching 'Vikings', which humorously mocked such inaccuracies as well as anachronisms on the show. Along with noticing that Rollo wore L.A. Ink type tattoos, I…

History Channel’s Devil Character Looks Like President Obama

March 18th, 2013 11:53 AM
The devil, you say. Actually, the devil, they say. Sunday night’s episode of the hit series “The Bible” on the History Channel featured an appearance by Satan, who as, depicted, looked familiar to many viewers. Feel free to judge for yourself. Spoiler alert: Barack Obama is the one on the right. The MailOnline reports that “Twitter exploded into life during the airing…
