Rachel Maddow is always gold for MSNBC on Monday nights.
But this past Monday, Maddow hit the motherlode in ratings when she interviewed Liz Cheney. Maddow walloped rival Sean Hannity with 3.15 million viewers vs.1.9 for the Fox News personality.
Cheney was promoting her new book and talking about the possibility of running for something now that she’s out of the House.
The Maddow madness led to the next hour when MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell handily beat Greg Gutfeld, 2 million to 1.68 million. The result was Hannity finishing 4th in the Fox lineup on Monday night.
Meantime, the highest rated show on CNN was Erin Burnett with 663,000. At 8pm, Anderson Cooper followed with 500K, a huge drop. CNN should just Cooper into Larry King, put on celebrities, make it show-bizzy, do something different than politics on a nightly basis. The hour is there for the taking.
