MSNBC’s ‘Morn­ing Joe’ sets view­er­ship mark af­ter tweets

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

NEW YORK — Joe Scar­bor­ough and Mika Brzezin­ski reached their big­gest au­di­ence ever when they talked Fri­day about Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s tweets about their show.

The Nielsen com­pany said Wed­nes­day that 1.66 mil­lion peo­ple watched the MSNBC morn­ing show the day af­ter the tweets. Trump, in de­nounc­ing the show last week, wrote that Brzezin­ski was “bleed­ing badly from a facelift’’ when he saw them around the New Year. Fri­day’s “Morn­ing Joe’’ proved more pop­u­lar than Trump’s favourite morn­ing show, “Fox & Friends.’’ Even Trump tweeted that he watched “Morn­ing Joe’’ on Fri­day.
