I think she wants to be on the show. She realizes it’s a very good platform for her and we love having her there. "I think she does want to be there. But she also acknowledged that stories of conflict involving McCain "don't seem to go away." I feel like she will come back," Hilary Estey McLoughlin, the executive producer of "The View," told The Daily Beast.
"The co-hosts and The View have had an incredible season and we expect them all back for an epic year ahead," ABC News said in a statement.
Even so, McCain often holds more conservative views than her colleagues, and has had on-air clashes with co-hosts such as Joy Behar, and those conflicts, which often make for good TV, don't always create healthy behind-the-scenes relationships. McCain's tenure on "The View" has been marked by a heavier turn by the show toward politics, and her ease with high-level guests such as former Vice President Joe Biden has lent her some momentum at the program.
 ” />
Meghan McCain gained wider renown on this season of "The View" as the show focused more intently on politics. But that development may also have made the program's own internal politics more difficult to bear.
She served as a contributor to the Fox News program, "Outnumbered." McCain has made waves since leaving Fox News Channel in the fall of 2017 to take part in the ABC talk-fest. At the time, she had built a career out of a hodgepodge of various activities, including stints at The Daily Beast, MSNBC and the now-defunct cable network Pivot.
ABC News said in a statement Wednesday that it expects McCain to return to the program's next cycle, even as a report in The Daily Beast suggests the daughter of former Senator John McCain is "seriously considering calling it quits" before the program enters its 23rd season.

Fox News Channel once again came out on top of the cable news ratings for the first quarter, but not without stiff competition from MSNBC and Rachel Maddow in particular.
slot, Fox News averaged 2.4 million total viewers (down 1% from the year-ago quarter), with including 421,000 in the key 25-54 demo, while MSNBC averaged 1.9 million total viewers (up 3% from 2018) and 333,000 in the 25-54 bracket. In the primetime 8-11 p.m.
slot for Q1 with just over 1 million average total viewers, a 7% bump from the same quarter in 2018.” /> Meanwhile, CNN grew in total viewership in the primetime 8-11 p.m.
Maddow drew 549,000 viewers in the key news demo on average, compared to Hannity’s 547,000 and Tucker Carlson's 532,000. MSNBC struck back in the 25-54 demo for individual shows, with Maddow beating out Sean Hannity's FNC program in Q1.
Maddow was followed by three other FNC shows: "Tucker Carlson Tonight" (2.98 million), "The Five" (2.58 million) and "The Ingraham Angle" (2.43 million). Hannity bested Maddow in terms of average total viewership, drawing 3.12 million compared to 3.06. However, ultimately the shows split bragging rights.
Interestingly, in the month of March, Maddow was down in third place in the 25-54 demo at 509,000, behind Hannity at 533,000 and Carlson, who topped the demo for first time, with 537,000. Maddow also lagged the two Fox News hosts in total viewership, averaging 2.89 million average viewers to Hannity's 3.15 million and Carlson's 3.03 million.

NBC News' streaming work has been available for view for several months. Signal has offered a show anchored by Simone Boyce, who came abroad in July for example. The broadband service features original programming, but nothing that might give viewers the option of watching Rachel Maddow without paying for cable. The company has faced a unique challenge: launching the new service without cannibalizing the business of MSNBC, which has seen ratings and ad rates rise since the 2016 presidential election.
NBC News already pumps out stories and headlines via broadcast and cable TV. Soon it will do so on a sustained basis via streaming video.
The NBCUniversal unit plans to launch NBC News Now, a free ad-supported news service that will transmit via broadband and is free to anyone, no matter whether they subscribe to NBCU-owned cable networks or not.
CBS News in 2014 launched CBSN, a video-streaming service that now has its own group of programs, including a morning show. The news company also operates Great Big Story, a compendium of interesting and colorful video stories about topics that might be of interest to a younger demographic. ABC News Live aims to give viewers a peek at whatever image and action producers feel is the most compelling at any given time of day. CNN has begun offering live feeds of important moments of coverage as well as new series from anchors like Brooke Baldwin and Dana Bash.
“The combination of Sky News and NBC News makes us the largest news operation in the world," Oppenheim said.
Most of the nation's mainstream TV-news outlets are building out streaming-video hubs that complement their existing products. NBC will be the latest to enter an increasingly crowded field. Fox News Channel last year launched the subscription-based Fox Nation, which offers documentary programs, a look at Sean Hannity's opening monologue from his radio program, a cooking show from "Fox & Friends" co-anchor Steve Doocy and opinions from Tomi Lahren, among other options.
It is a shareholder in France-based Euronews and is now a sibling to the Sky News unit of European satellite broadcaster Sky PLC now that parent Comcast has purchased it. "We will be doing original work that will be specific for the streaming service," he said, but "we will be drawing from the reporting that takes place across all the other NBC News properties. We will actually be reaching into other corners of NBCUniversal, E News, sports, you name it, for some of that content." NBC News has connections for overseas reporting as well. NBC News Now will cultivate stories from a broader array of sources available from its parent company, said Oppenheim.
Separately, NBC News said it would dispatch Al Roker, the veteran "Today" weather correspondent, to the Arctic Circle to report on the effects of climate change. " Al is really passionate about that and we are happy to facilitate.” The executive made his remarks as he discussed NBC News' commitment to original stories and enterprise reporting, noting the company has increased the size of its investigative unit to 40 journalists from 20 over the past two years. "He will be able to spotlight this issue and the dramatic impact of climate change in a way that I think will get more attention than a print piece in a publication with an unknown byline," said Oppenheim.
"People’s consumption habits are changing rapidly and it’s not limited to just young people," said Oppenheim. Approximately 93% of adults get at least some news via mobile or desktop, according to a June, 2018, study from Pew Research Center. The rush to broadband comes, however, as multiple swaths of news aficionados are getting their news video online.

"So, for folks who don’t have a traditional cable subscription it will be a great way to access the reporting of NBC News.” We are going to launch with 8 hours of programming, including live updates at the top of every hour, and when breaking news mandates, we’ll go up live as well," said Noah Oppenheim, the president of NBC News, during an event at the SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. The service, which has been known as NBC News Signal and has been available in less obvious fashion in recent months as NBC News experimented with programming,  will launch at the beginning of May. "It will be something you can access on Apple TV or Roku or any of those other boxes.

No one will find MSNBC primetime hosts Rachel Maddow, Chris Hayes, or Lawrence O’Donnell lobbing praise at President Trump or any of his various Cabinet members, but other programs on MSNBC’s daytime schedule play up guests who are deep experts in fields of law enforcement or national security instead of political affiliation. CNN’s efforts to ensure a both-sides balance in its news operations comes as one of its main rivals, MSNBC, has backed away from partisan positioning during a good chunk of its programming day.
To the CNN Politics team:
The popular interstitials subtly inveigh against those people who might try to make you believe an apple is a banana, and serves as a clever metaphor for President Trump, who has been shown to have made dozens of inaccurate statements during this time in office. CNN may spend so much time courting the right because the right sees it as being very left. CNN appeared to confirm this when it launched its “Facts First” marketing campaign in 2017. Marketing research at the time indicated that CNN’s favorability rating among Democrats and independents had risen early on in the Trump era.
Isgur Flores’ hire is a departure, however, even by past standards. She has no journalism experience, and has spent time actively debunking CNN’s efforts, even referring to it as the “Clinton News Network,” a disparaging reference often associated with the network’s conservative critics.
   You may have heard that Sarah Isgur will be joining CNN in the coming weeks as a Political Editor. We wish we had been able to share this news with you before it was reported in the press but as Washington is a town full of journalists, news like this sometimes gets out.
Fox News and MSNBC viewers are only too happy to talk about the latest Hannity or Maddow segment. In an age when news of global import seems to be constantly breaking, news viewers have become more vocal about their preferences. But when a news outlet goes out of its way to ensure both sides of the divided body politic are represented in its ranks, it’s sure to generate twice as much second-guessing of its decisions.
With two dozen candidates to cover, constant coordination is needed more than ever. Sarah will spend the first few months here getting to know our systems and our people. Eventually we plan to have her play a coordinating role in our daily political coverage – helping to organize and communicate between newsgathering, digital, and television.
In a time when news viewers are splintering around partisan leanings, CNN is proving to be a uniter, not a divider: people from both sides of the political aisle are eager to criticize its business decisions and news coverage.
Critics pointed out that Isgur Flores has been openly critical of CNN’s coverage on occasion, and wondered why the network would put someone like that in a position of responsibility when its journalists and marketing materials have railed against the Trump administration labeling its reporting as “fake news” and its reporters as potential “enemies of the people.” News of the hire, confirmed by a person familiar with the matter after a Politico report, was greeted skeptically by some media observers who were quick to make their disapproval known via social media.
CNN raised eyebrows Tuesday after details leaked about its hire of Sarah Isgur Flores, a longtime Republican press aide who most recently worked for former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The former Department of Justice spokeswoman is expected to become a political editor at CNN, one of several who reports to David Chalian, a VP and political director at CNN, and helps coordinate placement and coverage of emerging stories related to politics. The one-time plain vanilla network can't win for losing as it tries to achieve an elusive balance.
Sarah will report to David and work alongside Steve, Terence, and the digital politics team to make sure that all of our audiences get the most from our political reporting.
Read the CNN memo to staffers about the hire of Sarah Isgur Flores below:
She starts March 11th. We look forward to introducing Sarah to all of you” />
In a memo sent to staffers Wednesday morning, CNN Washington executives said Isgur Flores would start March 11 and “play a coordinating role in our daily political coverage — helping to organize and communicate between newsgathering, digital, and television. With two dozen candidates to cover, constant coordination is needed more than ever." They added: “We’re thrilled that Sarah is coming to CNN. She brings a wealth of government, political, communications, and legal experience to our team.”
Last year, Comcast outbid 21st Century Fox and Walt Disney to gain control of European satellite broadcaster Sky PLC, making it owner of Sky News. The dynamic is one that bears watching. Comcast, the parent of MSNBC and NBC News (which has taken over huge swaths of MSNBC’s grid), has been working to expand its news operations around the globe. In May of 2017, NBC News acquired a 25% stake in Europe’s France-based Euronews for $30 million. CNN has long been the dominant American news service abroad, but these new purchases could bring a new competitor to the fore.
Other conservative voices have included Ed Martin, Paris Dennard, and the controversial Jeffrey Lord. Corey Lewandowski, the former Trump campaign operative, was made an analyst for a time. So was Trump campaign aide Jason Miller. Many have been pushed from CNN after unsavory details of their private lives came to light or after making offensive remarks, as Lord was in August 2017 when he tweeted the Nazi salute "Sieg Heil!" in a swipe at a liberal activist. Yet it is also part of a pattern. CNN has for several years sought to incorporate into its on-air mix people who have railed against its work.
Liberals and conservatives get to weigh in on everything, often with CNN anchors like Chris Cuomo and Anderson Cooper pivoting to both sides again and again in their allotted time. The effort would seem to bolster CNN’s “both sides now” approach to the news.
Executives have continued to hire a spate of conservative editors and analysts, both for on-camera work and behind-the-scenes reportage. Mia Love, a former Republican congresswoman from Utah, is now an on-air analyst. The decision should surprise no one who has logged time watching CNN since the run-up to the 2016 election. White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins came to CNN from the Daily Caller, for example. Sarah Westwood, another White House reporter, joined CNN from the Washington Examiner, known to have a conservative editorial stance.
We’re thrilled that Sarah is coming to CNN. She brings a wealth of government, political, communications, and legal experience to our team.

News junkies seem to be drawn to this moment. CNN and CBSN are slated to begin at 5 p.m. CBS, NBC and ABC have already expanded their coverage of the elections to three hours of primetime from two. that day, while NBC News Signal will offer a preview show to the network's primetime coverage with MSNBC anchor Stephanie Rhule at 7 p.m. And many of the news outlets' streaming-video operations – including NBC News' Signal, ABC News ABC News Live and CBS News' CBSN – are slated to begin election-related programming on Tuesday in the late afternoon or early evening.
In early 2017, right after President Trump's inauguration, CNN filled its Saturday schedule with its weekday programming, with a few exceptions. It's not the first time one of the cable-news networks have brought weekday primetime to weekends.
The anchors, who typically hold forth Monday through Friday, are going to do various shows this evening as part of the networks' coverage in advance of the 2018 midterm elections, offering yet another sign of how viewer interest in the event is pressing the nation's news outlets to expand their coverage of it.
and Lawrence O’Donnell at 9 p.m. MSNBC even pre-empted Saturday programming, with four hours of "The Vote: America’s Future," anchored by Joy Reid at 6 p.m, Ari Melberat 7p.m., Stephanie Ruhle at 8 p.m.
TV viewers can likely expect more programs to nod to this week's elections – and not just news shows. Bee normally does one program each week. TBS will air two different broadcasts of "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee" this week – one on Monday and one on Wednesday.
Not so this weekend. Anderson Cooper, Rachel Maddow and the gang from "The Five" normally have Sundays off at CNN, MSNBC and Fox News Channel.

"It is smart, it is thorough, and most importantly, it is fair and it’s something that I am very proud of when I leave here every night.”  NBC News did not make executives available for comment. "I am incredibly grateful for my time here and so incredibly proud of all the terrific journalism that everyone in this room and on the phone does every single day," Singal told staffers Friday, according to this person.
Sam Singal, the NBC News producer who has supervised its flagship "NBC Nightly News" since September of 2015, is stepping down from the role to consider other options at the NBCUniversal unit, according to a person familiar with the matter. Jennifer Suozzo, a longtime producer at the news unit, will fill the role on an interim basis.
"“ou fight for this show every day," Holt said after Singal announced his departure. Singal has worked with "Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt since 2011, when he held weekend anchor duties on the evening broadcast. "You have been there for us, you have listened to my wacky ideas sometimes and have given me counsel and direction, and I am grateful for that and you do leave us in a strong position.”
She was the first producer for "Andrea Mitchell Reports" on MSNBC. Suozzo has been with NBC News since 1999 and with "Nightly News" since 2012.
He is expected to stay for a few more days on the broadcast to assist in a transition, this person said. Singal leaves just before news staffers are expected to start ramping up coverage of the 2018 midterm elections. Many executives who have served as executive producer of "Nightly News" have gone on to fill other senior NBC News roles.
The NBC broadcast continues to vie for audience with its closest rival ABC's "World News Tonight." That program captures more viewers overall, but the NBC evening broadcast leads the season in attracting viewers between 25 and 54 – the demographic most coveted by advertisers in news programming.

Walsh confirmed early Saturday via Twitter that she'd been informed the day before by MSNBC that the cabler would not renew her contract. Walsh, national affairs correspondent for the Nation and a former editor in chief of Salon, had been a regular on MSNBC for 12 years, six of them under contract as a contributor.
The news prompted an outcry from many boldface names, including MSNBC's Joy Reid and Chris Hayes. By day's end, Walsh broke the news, also via Twitter, that she would be joining CNN in the new year. Walsh supporters rallied in her defense using the hashtag #KeepJoanWalsh.
An uproar on social media helped political analyst Joan Walsh land at CNN just a day after she was dropped as a contributor by MSNBC.
A CNN rep could not immediately be reached for comment. MSNBC told CNN's Brian Stelter earlier Saturday: “Every year we review our paid contributors list across the ideological spectrum. Unfortunately we couldn’t renew Joan, but she and her distinct perspective will still be invited on our shows.”

Cable News
"Will" (TNT)
Fox News finished as the most-watched basic cable channel for the second year in a row, averaging 2.42 million viewers in primetime and 1.5 million in total day. 2017 was also Fox News' best year on record in total day viewership. The network grew by 51 percent in total viewers and 37 percent in the demo for primetime, and 47 percent in viewers and 33 percent in the demo for total day. CNN also had a banner year in total day, with the network's 783,000 viewers in the key news demographic of adults 25-54 marking it's highest numbers ever in that measure. Love him or hate him, Donald Trump's presidency has continued to fuel stellar ratings for CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News. MSNBC, meanwhile, posted massive percentage gains in all key measures.
TV Land
"American Horror Story" (FX)
"The Sinner" (USA)
The show was the number one new cable show of the year, averaging 3.85 million viewers per episode in Live+3 viewing, with 1.56 of those falling in the adults 18-49 demographic. Whether or not the show returns for a second season remains to be seen. USA Network's limited series starring Jessica Biel was a breakout hit for the network. It was also the top new drama series of the summer in all of television among in all key demos and was this summer’s number two ad supported cable series in total viewers, behind only "American Horror Story" Season 7.
When all was said and done, "The New Edition Story" proved to be the most successful cable biopic of all time in the key ratings measures, pulling in 29 million total viewers over the course of its premiere week, including delayed viewing. It proved to be both a critical and a ratings hit, topping the cable charts each of the three nights it aired. Way back in January, BET debuted the three-part miniseries "The New Edition Story," charting the rise of the influential R&B group.
2017 saw some cable shows soar to new ratings heights, while others experienced hard falls from lofty perches.
But then there are shows like AMC's "The Walking Dead." Though still a ratings powerhouse in the midst of its eighth season, the zombie drama has suffered steep losses in the last year that may not be reversed when it resumes in 2018. "Game of Thrones" (HBO) put up record numbers in its seventh season as the epic fantasy series begins to draw to a close; several other of the cabler's originals improved dramatically as well.
"I'm Dying Up Here," the Jim Carrey-produced look at stand up comedy in 1970s LA, didn't fare much better with 143,000 viewers per episode. "White Famous," which stars "SNL" alum Jay Pharoah and is based on the career of Jamie Foxx (who also guest stars and executive produces), did slightly better with 263,000 but failed to ever do better than 339,000 viewers–a number it nabbed in its fifth week. Only Frankie Shaw's semi-autobiographical half-hour series "SMILF" found ratings success, currently averaging 568,000 viewers as it nears the end of its first season. The return of "Twin Peaks" drew critical acclaim and record sign ups for Showtime's streaming service, but still averaged only 287,000 viewers per episode. "Guerrilla," the British miniseries that aired on both Showtime and Sky Atlantic, posted a paltry 100,000 viewers per episode despite the star power of both Idris Elba and Freida Pinto. Showtime debuted five shows in 2017, with most failing to hit ratings pay dirt.
The big three cable news networks — Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC — had some of their best numbers ever in 2017 with no signs of slowing down. Meanwhile, cable news channels are still enjoying record numbers, more than likely thanks to near 24-hour coverage of the Trump administration.
"Game of Thrones" fans had to wait a little longer than usual for the new season to arrive, but once it did, the ratings soared faster than a dragon taking to flight. New seasons of "Ballers" and "Insecure" were way up, with Issa Rae's sophomore comedy more than doubling its audience this year. Of those, 12.1 million watched the episode as it aired, making it the most-watched episode in series history. The season finale was watched by 16.5 million viewers, including people who watched the episode as it aired and night-of streams. Season 7 of "Game of Thrones" was the show's highest-rated yet, breaking several records in the process. But "Game of Thrones" wasn't the only big gainer for HBO this year. In addition, the final seasons of "Girls" and "The Leftovers" were up over their past seasons, ending both shows on a high note.
The 10-episode first season opened to an anemic 0.16 rating and 633,000 viewers, and averaged just a 0.11 and 383,000 viewers per episode. TNT's scripted look at the life of a young William Shakespeare was a massive swing and a miss for the cable network. TNT canceled the show in September just two days after the finale. Despite being filmed in Wales with a cast of mostly unknown actors, the show reportedly cost between $5-6 million an episode.
(All data is Nielsen Live+Same Day unless otherwise specified.) Here is Variety's analysis of cable ratings winners and losers.
"The New Edition Story" (BET)
Season 7, by comparison, averaged a 5.7 in the key demo at its midway point, as well as 12.1 million viewers per episode. AMC's megahit zombie apocalypse franchise took several hits with a barbed wire-wrapped ratings bat this year. Season 8 did little to reverse the problem. To begin, Season 7 closed out by posting the show's lowest season finale ratings since Season 2 aired back in 2012. That represents an approximate drop of 32 percent in the demo and 28 percent in total viewers. The Season 8 premiere was the show's lowest-rated since its third season, despite the fact that the Season 8 opener was also the show's 100th episode. In addition, the first half of Season 8 averaged a 3.9 and 8.7 million viewers per episode. It was also down in both key ratings measures by double digits compared to Season 6.
"The Walking Dead"
The network also canceled two of its other originals, "Lopez" and "Throwing Shade." Add the fact that "Nobodies" and the upcoming projects "Heathers" and "American Woman" will be leaving TV Land and migrating to the fellow Viacom-owned channel The Paramount Network in 2018, and TV Land is left with only two originals: "Younger" and "Teachers."” /> "Nobodies," which boasts Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone among its executive producers and in guest roles, averaged just a 0.07 rating and 357,00 viewers per episode in its 12-episode first season. Despite the critically-acclaimed series "Younger" scoring its highest-rated season this year, TV Land's remaining originals slate failed to measure up.
Presidential election showdown between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Yet the season premiere was down by over 20 percent in both measures compared to Season 6. "American Horror Story" went into its seventh season this year with considerable buzz, as series co-creator Ryan Murphy had teased that it would deal with the aftermath of the 2016 U.S. Granted, the season saw considerable lift in delayed viewing, but still finished down in the Live+Same Day ratings down approximately 30 percent in the demo and 24 percent in total viewers compared to the previous season.

He added, "But you know what, I like you because you are special. You are special people."
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried to deflect Trump's use of the name at the ceremony.
 "You were here long before any of us were here, although we have a representative in Congress who, they say, was here a long time ago. They call her 'Pocahontas.'" "I just want to thank you because you're very, very special people," Trump said at a White House ceremony.
Donald Trump does this over and over thinking somehow he is going to shut me up with it. Warren told MSNBC after Trump's remark on Monday that it was "deeply unfortunate that the President of the United States cannot even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur. It hasn't worked out in the past, it isn't going to work out in the future."
There was no reaction from those at the ceremony.
Warren defeated Brown that year, ending his brief career in the Senate.
Asked by ABC News' Jon Karl why Trump feels "the need to say something that is offensive to many people while honoring the Navajo code talkers," Sanders said, "I think what most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career."
 ” />
WASHINGTON — President Trump, appearing at an event to honor Navajo code talkers, made a reference to his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.): Pocahontas.
One issue was whether Warren got preferential treatment at Harvard Law School for designating herself as a minority. Trump has frequently used that term as an insult to describe Warren. She has insisted that her career did not benefit from her heritage. She has said that she is part Native American, but her heritage became an issue in her 2012 presidential campaign when her rival, Scott Brown, questioned her ancestry and even suggested that she should take a DNA test.

Farrow's New Yorker piece includes harrowing descriptions of Weinstein's behavior from women including Asia Argento, Rosanna Arquette and Mira Sorvino. Weinstein was fired by the board of the Weinstein Company on Sunday, in the wake of allegations revealed in the New York Times that he had been harassing women for many years.
He will also be interviewed by ABC News' Juju Chang on ABC's "Nightline."
Farrow, who joined NBCUniversal in 2014 as a host on MSNBC, currently works as a freelancer for NBC News, and had been investigating sexual-harassment allegations against Weinstein for ten months. The New Yorker story is said to be "radically different" from the material that was brought to NBC News. But when he brought early reporting on the subject to NBC News executives, at the time "he didn’t have one accuser willing to go on the record or identify themselves," this person said.
NBC News agreed, according to the source, with the understanding that if he got the story published he would come back and talk about it for NBC outlets.” /> Farrow asked NBC News if he could bring his work to a print outlet, this person said, thinking that sources might be more willing to cooperate if they did not have to go on camera.
Farrow is expected to discuss his story Tuesday evening on NBC's "NBC Nightly News," according to a person familiar with the matter. Ronan Farrow didn't break the first story of shocking allegations about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, but his New Yorker piece published Tuesday has added a new sordid dimension to the scandal.
Ronan Farrow, who is the son of Mia Farrow and is estranged from his father Woody Allen, has gone on record supporting his sister Dylan Farrow's accusations of improper behavior by their father.
