CNN Ratings Crash 70 Percent Just Since January

Linkedin Share

CNN’s ratings are plummeting to new lows and have fallen 70 percent just since January.

the recent ratings have collapsed, according to the latest Nielsen Media Research numbers.

Per Newsbusters:

Since a January high of roughly 798,000 primetime viewers and 530,000 total day viewers in the 25-54 demographic, CNN has fallen off a cliff and into the pit of misery with the network fetching only 229,000 in primetime and 152,000 in total day over the past month.

That, dear NewsBusters readers, would represent a cratering of 71 percent for both metrics. Granted, January saw the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, the second Trump impeachment, and the Biden inauguration, but to lose anything by such a large metric wasn’t anything one should brag about.

On the other hand, even as Fox suffered after its horrid coverage of the 200 elections, the cable news network is still trouncing CNN.

In contrast, Fox & Friends finished last week with 1.1 million total viewers and 218,000 in the demo. For those keeping score at home, that’s more than double CNN as the Zucker network morning show has been under half a million viewers for a month. Guess those snarky “Roll the Tape” commentaries haven’t done the trick.

What a joke CNN is.
