While Brian Stelter was taking a belated honeymoon with his wife, Reliable Sources did better without him, instead having guest host Frank Sesno. (Hint: if this sounds familiar, it is; the last time Stelter was away and Sesno subbed, RS did better than its previous three weeks with Stelter hosting).
According to IJReview:
While Fox News Channel’s MediaBuzz beat CNN’s Reliable Sources in total viewers, it tied with the media program on Sunday’s telecast, both averaging 210,000 in the 25-54 audience.
According to Nielsen, Sunday was the first time this year that FNC’s MediaBuzz did not beat CNN’s Reliable Sources. In 2014, CNN only beat MediaBuzz in the demo five times.
If I were Stelter, I’d be nervous… especially given the report that his producers are not pleased with him.
