Meet the Depressed

NBC News boss Deborah Turness has said publicly that she stands behind NBC's failing Meet the Press and its host David Gregory.

It might be time to rethink that strategy. 

The once powerhouse show continues to slip in the ratings. 

Politico says that the second quarter numbers show that MTP finished third in the second quarter of 2014, averaging just 2,365,000 total viewers and 687,000 in the 25-to-54 demo, according to newly released Nielsen numbers.

CBS' "Face the Nation" finished first among total viewers, with 2,874,000, while ABC's "This Week" topped the demo with 826,000 viewers for the first time in 17 years. 

Oh.... how the mighty have fallen.
