@RonanFarrow, ‘Reluctant’ TV Star, May Be Right…

pic_related_030314_SM_Ronan_FarrowRonan Farrow, son of Mia Farrow and, we don’t know, someone, recently went live on MSNBC in an effort to boost the liberal cable “news” channel’s 18-to-45 demographics.

Yeah, they’re desperate but they have to try.

Some of you may remember that we were a little dubious when we heard about the coming show last month.

Anyway, young Ronan—who is, regardless of the similarity in spelling, not the inspiration for a really cool Robert De Niro movie of the same name—may already be running into problems.

National Review via Drudge:

The New York Times Sunday Styles section published a piece last month depicting MSNBC host Ronan Farrow, the celebrity son of Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra, being embraced by Manhattan’s moneyed, aging A-list. Another profile, this one in the New York Times Magazine, described the new host as a “reluctant” television star. Whether the irony was intended is unclear, but the piece quotes MSNBC president Phil Griffin recounting his first meeting with Farrow: “Within 20 minutes I wanted to hire him,” Griffin said. “He’s got it.”

Which is what he said about Keith Olbermann, Martin Bashir, and Alec Baldwin, but shut up.

Farrow was mentored since his mid-teens by the late diplomat Richard Holbrooke. After Holbrooke’s sudden death Farrow was appointed to a murky role as “special adviser” to Hillary Clinton during her tenure at the State Department. He certainly knows how to charm sexagenarian elites, but young people don’t seem to like him much. The New York Times has aptly labeled him “the youngest old guy in the room.” Griffin had hoped the 26-year-old would help draw younger viewers to MSNBC, but after his first week on the air, Farrow’s ratings in the 18–49 demographic fell far below those from the comparable week a year ago, when Andrea Mitchell Reports was running in the same time slot.

Because young people everywhere are no doubt just dying to be bored silly with inane cocktail chit-chat by a liberal elitist wunderkind who never learned to ride a bicycle.

Special advisor to Hillary Clinton? At 15? Well, that explains Benghazi. Hey, Aunt Hilly, I have an idea. Anti-Muslim Video! No, really.

The Ace of Spades has more adventures in the life of young Ronan.

    My post on How I Met Your Mother was originally titled “Ronan Farrow Is Ruining My Life,” for reasons that could only make sense in my warped mind. Young Ronan could be one of your blogging muses if you don’t mind watching MSNBC.

      ROTFL! It is too bizarre how liberals come up with this stuff, isn’t it?
