In her new time slot, Maddow has beaten ol Larry in the coveted 25-54 demographic.
No shit, is this supposed to be news? Who in their correct frame of mind would watch Larry freaking King over Rachel Maddow?
The TVNewser post goes on to point out what Rachel won't be tackling, tv journalism issues. It seems she doesn't own a television. From the writeup:
Damn, I would curl up and start mumbling to myself without my talking box. Seriously...
Maddow won't touch the turmoil, saying she doesn't follow media issues. She might be the only TV talk show host who doesn't own a television - she hasn't since she left her folks' house to attend Stanford University. "It's not like 'Oh, I am too righteous for television.' I have a constitutional weakness in which I am very easily distracted by flashing lights. If there is a TV on in the room, I can't have a conversation with you. I won't eat, I won't sleep, I'll just meld with my couch."
