Debut of MSNBC’s Symone Sanders Show Flops in Ratings

Debut of MSNBC’s Symone Sanders Show Flops in Ratings

“managed to attract just 29,000 viewers in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 demographic”

Symone Sanders, who worked for the Bernie Sanders 2016 campaign, before jumping to the Joe Biden campaign and ultimately the VP office of Kamala Harris, is now a host on MSNBC.

Her new show launched this past weekend, but not many people were watching.

Her first guest was First Lady Jill Biden, but that didn’t seem to help much.

Ariel Zilber reports at the New York Post:

Ex-Biden aide Symone Sanders’ MSNBC debut is a ratings flop

Symone Sanders’ popularity is about as bad as the approval rating of her former boss.

The ex-Biden administration official who was most recently a top spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris tanked in her debut this past weekend on MSNBC, according to newly released Nielsen ratings.

Sanders drew just 361,000 total viewers for her 4 p.m. show, titled “Symone,” on Saturday. She also managed to attract just 29,000 viewers in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 demographic.

The program’s viewership fell well short of Fox News Channel’s “Fox News Live,” which drew 842,000 total viewers, including 163,000 in the 25-54 demographic.

Sanders’ debut program featured an interview with First Lady Jill Biden.

For context, there are individual broadcasters on YouTube who get far better numbers than those.

Here’s a sample of what you missed.

Joseph Curl of the Daily Wire has more:

Before her new show debuted, Sanders, 32, said “I’m not here to be a spokesperson for the Biden administration. I had that job already,” according to The Hill.

“I’m going to be honest, and sometimes the honesty means that what I have to say is not what the administration would have to say. And that’s fine, because it’s my show,” she said.

Sanders’ program airs Saturday and Sunday at 4 p.m ET. “We’re going to do today’s headlines, but we’re going to go deeper. We’re going to get to the weeds,” said Sanders, who also has served as a CNN commentator.

“I’m a millennial, and the only reason, frankly, I was turning on the TV was because of the job that I worked,” she said. “When I wake up in the morning, I’m checking Twitter, I’m checking Instagram, I check my email, I check my text messages, and I would not turn on the TV … and then the first time I see a television that’s on is when I walk into my office.”

“So my show is going to reach people like me: young people who are engaged, who are paying attention, who care, but who may not be watching TV as regularly,” Sanders said.

Sanders had better start engaging with a higher volume of viewers or her show won’t last very long.

Will she end up playing the race card when the show is canceled?

Well, she fills the hour. And the screen.

When they reported that Biden was taking the Beast on his foreign trips, I was never quite sure what was meant.

She’d get way better numbers on The Dominatrix Channel.

I had no idea that Bernie has a daughter. She looks like she eats at the colonel’s.

Perhaps the reason for the poor viewer ship is we have a market already saturated with former d/prog officials turned talking heads to lecture us?

definitely the recipient of an ugly stick assault–the chain around the neck is a nice touch–well, either msnbc or motel 6 and a mop

    Motel 6 has a lock on the Hispanic Services employee market. Better work ethic and outcomes. Unlike the D-Prog Affirmative Action group.

    The bald head seems like a form of self mutilation to me. And the symbology of it, in light of what the Apostle Paul worte in his letters, would seem to be a woman who refuses to be under authority and in particular honoring / respectful of her husband.

      As in “honey, I’m gonna make myself ugly. Hope you’re OK with that. You better be OK with that.” It’s especially warped in the sense that a husband has a vested interest in the health and wealfare of his wife, and vice versa. And where beauty is a factor in physical attraction, to make oneself ugo on purpose is selfish and inconsiderate of one’s spouse.

The woman is Fugly beyond reason.

Her voice is way too shrill. Got a migraine just listening just listening to that short clip. Jen Psaki will fit in well with this crowd and I hope she has the same success as Symone. With a couple more ex-Biden hires, MSNBC will become ANOTHER shadow government.
