Oddly, the ticker displays the date along with the time.
The scroll hasn’t gone unnoticed, as media critic Adalian says the ticker “won’t add a single viewer” in a tweet.
Dear @MSNBC: Adding a news crawl to your primetime shows won't add a single viewer, or keep anyone watching longer. Please stop it.— Joe Adalian (@TVMoJoe) October 1, 2015
Both CNN and Fox News include this element during primetime.
