CNN’s ratings plummet to lowest primetime viewership in almost three years

From Fox News: CNN’s 24/7 Trump-bashing strategy doesn’t seem to be working.

The beleaguered network’s primetime hosts Anderson Cooper, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon celebrated Thanksgiving with the network’s lowest-rated week in primetime viewership in nearly three years.

Fox News averaged 2.2 million viewers during the primetime hours of 9-11 p.m. ET from Nov. 25 through Dec. 1, while MSNBC averaged 1.3 million viewers during the same time period and CNN managed only 643,000 average viewers. It was CNN’s worst performance in nearly three years and the liberal network’s worst turnout among the key demographic of adults age 25-54 in over five years.

Thanksgiving didn’t make for a slow news week, as CNN’s hapless totals came amid ongoing news regarding impeachment hearings of President Trump, the controversy surrounding the handling of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, Mike Bloomberg launching a 2020 presidential bid, Trump’s surprise trip to Afghanistan and significant weather-related stories.

CNN averaged only 138,000 primetime demo viewers — less than half of Fox News’ average of 303,000 during the week.

Fox News was the most-watched cable network among total day viewers for the 47th straight week, averaging 1.3 million. Hallmark Channel, ESPN, MSNBC and Nickelodeon joined FNC among the top five.

So who’s underwriting/propping up CNN such that its low ratings don’t matter?

Just got the video to play of Cuomo’s melt-down. What a damned fool. Roid boy needs to take a chill pill and remember he’s not in high school anymore, and not 20-something either, so he’d probably have a coronary and die on the spot were he actually to throw down with the kid. And if not, they’d haul his ass off to jail, and then he’d lose his job, his lifestyle, and everything else his dad worked hard to pay for… What if the kid were packing heat? Worth the tough-guy bluster, Fredo? He and Jackass Joe were cut from… Read more »
