CNN failed to crack the top five most popular channels from Oct. 15 to 21 and fell behind Fox News, ESPN, TBS, MSNBC and Nickelodeon.

CNN placed 11th in total viewers, wedged in between TNT and the USA Network with an average total of 609 thousand viewers throughout the week.

The network didn’t fare much better during primetime either, with Fox News being the only cable news channel to crack the top five with just over 2.6 million viewers, putting it at fourth place above TNT and below ESPN at 2.63 million viewers.

CNN was 13th in primetime viewers at 883 thousand. For comparison, MSNBC was sixth at 1.466 million.

In the coveted 25-54 demographic, Fox – yet again – doubled CNN in primetime viewership.
