It's July, so it really does mean much, but MSNBC did show some signs of life in the summer month.
For July 2015, MSNBC showed more month-to-month growth than all other cable news networks.
Many key MSNBC programs saw ratings improvements up from June 2015, including growth for “Morning Joe” (up 10%), “The Rachel Maddow Show” (up 7%), “Hardball with Chris Matthews” (up 11%), “All In with Chris Hayes” (up 13%) and “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” (up 23%), among total viewers.
A number of MSNBC programs also topped CNN among total viewers, including “Morning Joe”, “The Ed Show”, “Hardball”, “PoliticsNation”, “The Rachel Maddow Show”, “The Last Word”, "All in" and in the Primetime M-F 8-11p daypart. In the A25-54 demo, MSNBC saw Total Day growth up 3% from July 2014 and up 6% from June 2015, and for Primetime, MSNBC was up 8% over June 2015.
Like we said, it's July, but hey it's better than going backwards. Right?
