CNN and MSNBC Both Claim 2013 Ratings Victories over Each Other as Fox Remains #1 | Mediaite: "There’s no denying it: When it comes to cable news in America, no one can touch Fox News. And it’s hard for CNN to spin their numbers into a victory over MSNBC. While it’s true that MSNBC saw the biggest drops in viewership compared to 2012, they still beat CNN where it counts in prime time.
Despite his best efforts to shake things up, Jeff Zucker was not able to turn the CNN ship around in just one year. MSNBC’s Phil Griffin admitted that his network is “not the place” for breaking news, but as long as there are enough viewers who want to see what MSNBC’s liberal commentators think about the politics of the day, they may not need to be. However, if Zucker spends 2014 encroaching on its biggest rival by injecting more “attitude” into CNN’s programming, next year could be an even more competitive showdown."
