“Happy New Year’s!”
HLN’s Morning Express delivered an impressive key demo win on New Year’s Day, beating out usual first place holder Fox and Friends, and beating out sister CNN’s New Day… along with MSNBC’s MSNBC Live.
On Thursday, January 1st, Robin Meade had 159,000 demo viewers, putting her comfortably on top. Fox had 157,000, followed by CNN with 102,000, and MSNBC barely came in with 34,000.
Guess that goes to show, a live show is always better than a taped holiday special. On New Day, anchors Chris Cuomo, Alisyn Camerota and Michaela Pereira had a pre-taped shows with live news cut-ins by John Berman. Robin, meanwhile, was live on HLN — no holiday special!
