CNN’s struggles to keep viewers interested in the post-Trump era have continued well into October.
The liberal network known for constantly bashing Republicans and former President Trump can’t seem to keep viewers engaged, perhaps because there’s not a good way to blame the right for the constant slew of Democrat-created crises plaguing the country. However, CNN has reached new lows as new reports reveal not a single program was able to average 1 million viewers during the first two weeks of October.
According to reports from Fox News:
CNN’s total day viewer average has plummeted to 484,000, a distant third behind Fox News’ 1.4 million and MSNBC’s 685,000 from Oct. 1 through Oct. 15, according to Nielsen data. CNN’s weekday primetime average reached just 729,000 while Fox News topped with 2.6 million versus MSNBC’s 1.5 million.
“AC:360” anchor Anderson Cooper, who had the most-watched CNN program in September averaging 916,000 viewers, has been capped at the knees so far this month, falling a whopping 17% to an average of 759,000 viewers. Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” averaged 3 million viewers, quadrupling CNN’s viewership. MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes” averaged 1.3 million in the same time period.
“Cuomo Prime Time” anchor Chris Cuomo nabbed Cooper’s leading status from last month averaging 818,000 viewers, a 6% drop from September. Fox News’ “Hannity” continues to trounce Cuomo, averaging 2.76 million viewers while MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” averaged 2.17 million so far this month.
CNN’s left-wing media guru Brian Stelter also had a great fall below the 700,000 threshold, reaching only a 665,000 average between his first two October installments of his Sunday program “Reliable Sources.”
It seems CNN will continue to hemorrhage viewers for months to come, the only question now becomes who will be the first to leave the network?
