Presidential hopeful Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s heavily promoted CNN Town Hall faltered on Monday night, averaging just 294,000 viewers among the key demo of adults ages 25-54, according to early Nielsen ratings.

The Don Lemon-hosted event, broadcast live from New Hampshire, averaged 1.1 million viewers in all between from 10-11:15 p.m. ET, finishing well behind liberal rival MSNBC’s audience of 2.4 million over the same time period. MSNBC also overpowered CNN in that coveted age demo, with 441,000 viewers compared to the 294,000 CNN drew for Klobuchar’s event.

Last week, CNN raised eyebrows by offering a similar platform to potential candidate Howard Schultz, who had not even officially entered the race. Despite lackluster reviews, Schultz’s event averaged 341,000 demo viewers, topping Klobuchar in the category -- but Klobuchar did edge Schultz among total viewers.

I have no idea who this person is.

May be you guys can shine a light on just who she is and why she is running.

But, it appears she's not very popular and I would say considering what's going on in Minnesota at the moment her Senatorial time may be better spent sweeping her own front porch.

She appeared first on the Rachel Maddow show


Not only did NBCU’s politics-focused cable network post year-over-year total audience growth, but more Americans tuned into MSNBC for their late-night cable news fix than any other cable news network. Per Nielsen live-plus-same-day data, MSNBC was No. 1 in total viewers during the 9 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. timeslots, anchored by Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell and Brian Williams, respectively

She's the one who announced her run for the presidency in a snowstorm a few days ago.

I heard that she's a moderate, and if that's true, I already like her better than some of the others.

I think there are 10 who have announced so far...

Klobuchar would be the most moderate Democratic nominee since Michael Dukakis, allowing for the whole party's gradual leftward drift.

But the politics of going in that direction don't make a tremendous amount of sense on their face.

Trump is going to paint whomever he runs against as a Karl Marx contemporary. If they don't hold outwardly socialist policy views, he will make some up.

The election is going to be about whether or not he should be allowed to continue in office with his impact.

It won't be about ideology and it won't be about the economy. It will be about whether or not America is OK with the societal harm he has caused.

Democrats don't need centre-right voters to back them, they just need them to stay home or protest vote.

No matter what happens, when Trump loses, the GOP will say his replacement has no mandate, that it was a vote against Trump.

So Democratic voters should just vote for the person they like the best and be ready for that environment.

SHE appeared on Rachel's show first - which gets very high ratings.

Anyway, much ado about nothing. So far, she does not have the name recognition like some others. For example, Sanders

TV "ratings" don't tell you much about who people are going to support a year from now.

I heard that there's only ten who have officially announced.

One or two of them I have never heard of.

Plus, there are a few more who have formed "exploratory committees" and will jump in soon.

The big name is Biden, who should be announcing any day now.

LOL .....

Everything is Trump's fault isn't it?

You Low/No ....... heck .... never mind !!!!

‘Moderate’ a dirty word? 2020 Dems cringe at being labeled less than liberal
