Donald Trump: 8 Talking Heads Who Were Wrong About His Rise (Photos)

17 April 2016 10:43 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

FiveThirtyEight founder and editor in chief Nate Silver famously predicted all 50 states of the 2012 election — but when it came to predicting Donald Trump’s chances, he wasn’t so accurate. He’s not the only one. Political pundits, newscasters and celebrities have doubted Donald Trump since he announced his candidacy back on on June 16, 2015. They have called him everything from a “comical figure” to a “blowhard” and compared him at times to Hitler.

The announcement comes about a week after Apple’s statement on Mississippi’s “religious freedom” bill, which has been widely criticized for allowing businesses to deny serving Lgbt residents.

Why Trump's Abortion Comments Are Angering Both Pro-Life and Pro-Choice Supporters

31 March 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Well, it looks like we've finally found the thing that will unite the Democratic and Republican parties: anger over Donald Trump's recent comments about abortion - in particular his suggestion that women should be punished for having the procedure. Once describing himself as "pro-choice in every respect," Trump says he's evolved on the issue and that he's now pro-life, with exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. He reiterated his stance at a town hall in Green Bay, Wisconsin, this week after an audience member asked for his thoughts on women's rights. The town hall's moderator, MSNBC's Chris Matthews, »

Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz Team Up to Condemn Trump for Saying That Women Who Get Abortions Should Be Punished

31 March 2016 8:50 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Donald Trump is under fire from Democrats and Republicans alike for his suggestion Wednesday that women who undergo abortions should face punishment if the U.S. bans the procedure. Trump later walked back his comments in a statement saying that the doctors who perform abortions should be held responsible, rather than the women who obtain them - but by then the backlash was already well under way. Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton was one of the first to condemn Trump's comments, taking to Twitter to say: "Just when you thought it couldn't get worse. Horrific and telling. -H" She followed up »

Bernie Sanders Is Perfectly Happy To Let The Republican Party Blow Up

31 March 2016 7:54 AM, PDT | Mediaite - TV | See recent Mediaite - TV news »

It's the kind of question that only the squishiest of overthinking bleeding-heart liberals could love: shouldn't we all feel some compassion for the Republican Party's current struggles, and hope they work it all out? That's the question that Rachel Maddow posed to Hillary Clinton Wednesday night, eliciting a predictably diplomatic, make-nice response. When she later posed the question to Bernie Sanders, he first went on a verbal stroll around the question, but on re-direct, made his feelings refreshingly clear. »

Fox News Tops All of Cable Viewership for Quarter; CNN Up Triple-Digits in Primetime

29 March 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As the presidential primary races heated up, cable news networks scored some big ratings achievements this winter, highlighted by Fox News Channel’s first-ever quarterly total-viewer victory among all cable networks and CNN’s most-watched quarter in seven years. All three cable news networks saw nice spikes, but CNN’s were by far the largest, as the network — buoyed by more debates and town hall events than its rivals —  closed the demo gap with Fox News and pulled away from MSNBC.

The first quarter of 2016 was highlighted by surprisingly strong performances in primary races by Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, the former the Republican front-runner and the latter giving Hillary Clinton a tougher battle than expected on the Democratic side. Both are credited with bringing millions of new voters to this primary season, and some of that heightened interest in the races has clearly resulted in higher ratings across the cable news board. »

Read Elizabeth Warren’s Donald Trump Takedown: ‘He’s a Loser’

21 March 2016 4:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is accusing Donald Trump of “petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, and flagrant narcissism.” And one more thing: sucking at business. The first-term Massachusetts senator — who brushed aside calls that she run for president — took to Facebook to present Trump as a foe who personifies the things she likes least: greed, crooked dealings, corporate bankruptcies. She doesn’t mince words. Also Read: 8 Donald Trump Naysayers Who Predicted Wrong, From Nate Silver to Rachel Maddow (Video) Trump, who tends to waste no time responding to slights on Twitter, was silent about Warren’s insults.

Donald Trump to Bill O'Reilly: 'I Always Like to Be a Gentleman'

17 March 2016 11:21 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump appeared on The O'Reilly Factor Wednesday night to discuss the increasing frequency of protesters at his rallies and a possible shift in rhetoric as the mogul begins to think toward the general election.

Host Bill O'Reilly opened the interview by asking Trump if he felt a need to "tone down [his] confrontational style" and be "more statesmanlike" as it looks more likely that he will become the Republican nominee.

"I always like to be a gentleman," Trump said. "[The race] started off with 17 people — all smart, all tough, all »

3 March 2016 9:37 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In advance of its regular-timeslot premiere next Tuesday, ABC’s new family comedy “The Real O’Neals” generated solid sampling with its two special preview episodes on Wednesday, a night won by CBS as “Survivor” shot up without “American Idol” competition.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, ABC opened the night with a special 8 p.m. episode of “The Goldbergs” (2.0 rating/7 share in adults 18-49, 7.0 million viewers overall) and the first of two “Real O’Neal” episodes (1.8/6 in 18-49, 6.3 million viewers overall), with the shows combining for the same average of last week when both “The Middle” and “Goldbergs” delivered a 1.9 in their regular timeslots; they placed second to “Survivor” in most categories. “Goldbergs,” featuring a tribute to “Dirty Dancing,” was up 18% (0.2) week to week in 18-34 (1.3 vs. 1.1) and drew its largest overall audience since mid-November.

“Modern Family” (2.6/8 in 18-49, 8.2 million viewers overall) edged up for its highest rating in three weeks, »

Tina Fey and Rachel Maddow Compete to Be the Biggest "Know It All" on The Tonight Show

3 March 2016 5:54 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Both Tina Fey and journalist Rachel Maddow have a few things in common: They both have been on TV, have traveled the world for their jobs and have reported the news. Ok so maybe that latter one isn't totally true, but Fey did appear on satirical segment "Weekend Update" on Saturday Night Live and plays a broadcast journalist in her new movie Whiskey Foxtrot Tango, so we'll give it to her. Given their overlapping interests, it's safe to say they might be "know it alls," which is exactly what Jimmy Fallon intended to find out on Wednesday's episode of The Tonight Show. Both Fey and Maddow competed in a game of "Know It All" to see just exactly who knows more about a variety of »

Melissa Harris-Perry Walks Away From MSNBC Show

26 February 2016 2:30 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Melissa Harris-Perry may be too progressive for the new MSNBC.

The anchor, who has hosted a weekend program on the NBCUniversal-owned cable-news outlet since 2012, said she will not host her show this weekend in what appears to be a significant difference of opinion regarding her role at the network, which has in recent months focused more intently on breaking-news coverage and politics.

“Here is the reality: Our show was taken — without comment or discussion or notice — in the midst of an election season,” Harris-Perry wrote in a note that was reported previously by the New York Times, then posted on Medium. “After four years of building an audience, developing a brand, and developing trust with our viewers, we were effectively and utterly silenced. Now, MSNBC would like me to appear for four inconsequential hours to read news that they deem relevant without returning to our team any of the editorial »

Ratings: CNN’s Republican Town Hall Easily Tops MSNBC’s Donald Trump Hour

18 February 2016 10:31 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

CNN was the top-rated cable news network on Wednesday, as the first of its two Republican town hall gatherings this week easily outdrew MSNBC’s own town hall special with Donald Trump — an event that was announced only one day earlier.

According to fast nationals from Nielsen, CNN’s Gop Town Hall from Greenville, S.C., led cable news for the 8-11 p.m. time period Wednesday in both total viewers (2.307 million) and the key adults 25-54 news demo (758,000). Fox News Channel was second with mostly regular programming (2.116 million, including 393,000 adults 25-54) and MSNBC ran a distant third (1.227 million, including 281,000 adults 25-54).

Airing from 8 to 11 p.m. Et on Wednesday, CNN’s town hall was moderated by Anderson Cooper and featured presidential candidates Ben Carson, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio in front of a live studio audience. A second Gop town hall, this one featuring Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Trump, »

Democratic Debate Tops 8 Million Viewers Across PBS, CNN

12 February 2016 1:07 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

There’s no debating that Thursday’s “PBS NewsHour Democratic Primary Debate” landed 8.03 million total TV viewers across PBS and CNN combined. That modest figure ties it with the Dec. 19 version on ABC. Unfortunately, 8.03 million is only good enough to actually beat one out of the 14 debates this primary season: Last week’s Democratic debate No. 5 on MSNBC. To be fair to the home of Rachel Maddow, had last night’s event only been on one channel, it could have possibly taken over as the new last-place debate thus far. Maybe. Probably not.

5 February 2016 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The first head-to-head showdown of Democratic front-runners Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders didn’t make much of a ratings impact on Thursday, as MSNBC’s two-hour event — a late addition to the schedule — racked up the lowest numbers for any debate this election cycle.

According to preliminary Nielsen estimates, Thursday’s debate from New Hampshire averaged roughly 4.5 million viewers from 9 to 11 p.m. Et, including about 1.2 million viewers in the key news demo of adults 25-54. The most recent Democratic debate prior to last night, Jan. 17 on NBC, averaged 10.16 million viewers and 3.2 million adults 25-54, and the previous low for the Dems came with a Saturday night debate on ABC shortly before Christmas (8.03 million overall, 1.97 million adults 25-54).

MSNBC was the clear ratings leader among the cable news networks from 9 to 11 p.m., though it lagged behind each of the major broadcast networks. Fox News was second among the cable newsies (2.0 million viewers, »
