Joe Biden’s town hall on CNN was a total bust in the ratings as even MSNBC beat the president’s big night on TV.

Wasn’t Biden the most popular president in American history? That’s what the Democrats keep saying, anyway.

One would think that the candidate who “got more votes in history” would at least be able to have one good night on TV, wouldn’t you?

Per the New York Post:

Deadline, citing Nielsen ratings, reported that CNN pulled in an average of 1.46 million viewers between 8 p.m. and 9:15 p.m., when the president was on stage in Cincinnati. That’s a 58 percent drop in viewership from the previous CNN town hall with Biden this past February, which drew 3.5 million viewers.

Over the same 75-minute period Wednesday, Fox drew an average of 2.76 million viewers for “Tucker Carlson Tonight” and the first part of “Hannity.” The latter program featured a town hall with Florida Republicans, including Gov. Ron DeSantis, Sen. Marco Rubio, Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar, and Miami Mayor Francis Suarez discussing the ongoing pro-freedom protests in Cuba.

MSNBC edged out CNN for second place among the big three cable networks, drawing an average of 1.47 million viewers for “All in with Chris Hayes” and the first portion of “The Rachel Maddow Show.”

“Overall, Fox News won primetime Wednesday night with an average of 2.36 million viewers compared to 1.63 million for MSNBC and 1.28 million for CNN,” the Post added.

Again… so much for the “most popular president in history,” huh?
