Yes, that's right. Sons of Anarchy beat all the cable news networks on Election Night 2014. Perhaps we should consider making the 2016 Presidential election into a reality show, where night after night we can vote someone off the island, or watch a little mayhem in real time.

These ratings are pathetic, except for Fox News, whose election coverage dominated every time slot. In the 10:00 ratings slot, the top ten were:

  1. Sons of Anarchy (FX)
  2. America's Election HQ (Fox News)
  3. Big Bang Theory (TBSC)
  4. TOSH.O (Comedy Central)
  5. Inkmaster (Spike)
  6. American Dad (ADSM)
  7. Chrisley Knows Best (USA)
  8. Election Night in American (CNN)
  9. Chopped (Food Channel)
  10. Real Husbands Season 3 (BET)

MSNBC is waaaaay down there at the bottom, past Sponge Bob reruns.

America, WTF?

Can you help us out?
