Palin vs. Couric: “Today” wins Tuesday ratings battle with GMA

posted at 3:52 pm on April 4, 2012 by Allahpundit

You know, that fourth hour with Kathie Lee and Hoda has always been a weak link. It could use some spicing up, a little fresh blood. Just saying. Just puttin’ that out there.

Was this ever really in doubt?

Sarah Palin’s appearance as a guest host on NBC’s Today beat Katie Couric’s guest hosting of ABC’s Good Morning America in the ratings battle on Tuesday. The NBC morning show has held its 17-year ratings lead over its ABC rival for the first two days of this week.

With Palin guest hosting, Today drew just under 5.5 million total viewers on Tuesday, according to Nielsen Fast National data. Good Morning America drew 5.14 million viewers with Couric, who is filling in all week.

How much of a difference did Palin make? Hard to tell without a full week’s worth of ratings data, but compare yesterday’s numbers to (a) Monday’s, (b) a week in mid-March, and (c) the first quarter’s. Via TV Newser:

“Today”
First quarter: 5.39M overall, 2.39M in the key 25-54 demo
Week of March 19: 4.98M overall, 2.18M in key demo
Monday: 5.11M overall, 2.20M in key demo
Tuesday with Palin: 5.5M overall, 2.21M in key demo

GMA
First quarter: 4.93M overall, 2.00M in key demo
Week of March 19: 4.84M overall, 1.97 in key demo
Monday with Katie: 4.78M overall, 1.76M in key demo
Tuesday with Katie: 5.14M overall, 1.92M in key demo

Both shows beat their usual overall numbers for all relevant periods, but interestingly both performed below their first-quarter averages in the key demo. Katie’s debut Monday actually did worse than the mid-March weekly average, but she came roaring back yesterday; “Today,” which beat its mid-March average on Monday, did even better by comparison, gaining nearly 390,000 viewers overall for Palin versus the 360,000 ABC gained for Katie from Monday to Tuesday. So yeah, Palin clearly helped. But like I say, the rest of the week will give us a better sense of how much.

Via the Blaze, even Jon Stewart thought she was “actually quite good and likable.” Sort of.

OK, but…

1) NBC employee Al Sharpton is touring Florida, stirring up racial hatred.

2) NBC edited a recording of Zimmerman so that it sounds like he said, “He’s up to no good. He looks Black.” Zimmerman did say that Trayvon was up to no good. When the 911 operator asked what race Trayvon was, only then did Zimmerman say he looks Black.

NBC is irresponsible, dangerous, & no longer deserves to be called a news organization.

I guess Katie doesn’t feel so ‘perky’ now!

But in a larger since, NBC underused Sarah, she definitely more natural in talking to a guest than that Ann Curry, who is a bore. I’m glad I don’t watch these Morning Shows often

If Palin is going to go this “Red State Oprah” route that Breitbart envisioned for her, she needs a show opposite The View. That way we can enjoy the lamentations of those harpies as she routinely crushes them in ratings.

Sarah as usual crushes the competition. Question, if romneycare was the guest host, how much you want to bet Sarah’s number would be significantly better!

that is why she resigned, and it had absolutely nothing at all to do with any frivolous ethics complaints hurting her, her family, and her state. nope, nothing.

At the same time, a third of the male audience (read: mostly retired) were all screaming to their TV’s to contribute to the cause. Heh.

Now whoever did Sarah’s hair and makeup on NBC must go to FOX. Whoever did her hair and makeup for Hannity must be fired, stat. Note to makeup artist: There are dark colors that look great with pink, not just pink on someone with tanned skin and dark brown hair!!!! I KNOW–>I am one of them.

I don’t understand why the Palinoids are braying so loudly over this.

Beating Couric in the ratings reinforces that she’s good on television. It says precisely nothing about why she’d be good for higher office.

KingGold on April 4, 2012 at 4:31 PM

First of all, she was able to get a little of the message out to a lot of people who might not otherwise get it. How many of those viewers wander around to a serious news show or hit the internet for their facts. This is where they get their facts.

Secondly, it’s not a bad start to rehabbing her image. If she can show that she’s not a monster who eats children and wants to put everyone in a FEMA camp, she has to start somewhere and, again, this is where the lemmings get their thoughts fed to them.

Beating Couric is just funny. Nothing more. We’ve already been through too many times on why she’d be good for higher office and if you are too dull to look around you and see Obama and compare to Palin, then you are way beyond any kind of help that anyone without a lobotomy drill can offer.

Hope helping you out with some of the subtleties on why this was A Good Thing for both Palin and the conservative cause clears up a few things for you. You’re welcome.

First of all, she was able to get a little of the message out to a lot of people who might not otherwise get it. How many of those viewers wander around to a serious news show or hit the internet for their facts. This is where they get their facts.

Secondly, it’s not a bad start to rehabbing her image. If she can show that she’s not a monster who eats children and wants to put everyone in a FEMA camp, she has to start somewhere and, again, this is where the lemmings get their thoughts fed to them.

Beating Couric is just funny. Nothing more. We’ve already been through too many times on why she’d be good for higher office and if you are too dull to look around you and see Obama and compare to Palin, then you are way beyond any kind of help that anyone without a lobotomy drill can offer.

Hope helping you out with some of the subtleties on why this was A Good Thing for both Palin and the conservative cause clears up a few things for you. You’re welcome.

Damn! that’s like 12 states away!

Well, I wish you luck seeing Santorum….don’t know what to
expect the next few weeks here. He may come my way for a rally.
Lancaster County almost always gets spotlighted for the
Republican turnout.

Stewart is just mad that Palin had more people at her rally (Beck’s rally) than he did. This is par for the course.
