MSNBCs' 'Ronan Farrow Daily' and 'Reid Report' Suffer Low-Rated Premiere Week

Rocky start for the two fledgling programs

It was a rocky first week for MSNBC's two new shows.

“Ronan Farrow Daily” and Joy Reid's “The Reid Report” both turned in first-week ratings well below their respective timeslots in 2013.

Farrow's show, which aired at 1 p.m. ET, averaged 243,000 total viewers and 55,000 in the key 25 to 54 news demo for the week. Those figures represent a 40 percent and 42 percent drop, respectively, over “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” which occupied the timeslot in 2013.

“The Reid Report,” which followed Farrow at 2 p.m., fared much better in total viewers with an average of 286,000 for the week — an 8 percent decline from “News Nation with Tamron Hall” in 2013. Reid's demo figures were also better than Farrows, if only slightly: the show averaged 63,200 viewers aged 25 to 54, a 38 percent drop from last year.

    Did frank Sinatra do a woody Allen on Ronan? It's the only way to improve those ratings and viewership.

    Considering they are on during the day when old retired people are home ….let's be honest the average age of fox viewers are over 65 I think Joy Reid's show will keep getting better not sure about Ronan Farrow though So all you laughing I wouldn't because eventually foxes viewers are going to die off
