CNN is an outlier; meaning its stunning rating collapse is unique in cable news.
While no one in the media wants to talk about it, CNN’s relentless fake news sprees have not only created a massive credibility problem for the hate network, the far-left cable channel’s rating crisis is even more severe.
CNN’s average total day viewers disintegrated by -25 percent, 841K compared to 635K. In other words, throughout the day last week, CNN could only attract an average of 635,000 total viewers.
Last week, Fox averaged 2.487 million primetime viewers, nearly three times that of CNN’s 844K, and 1.463 million total day viewers, more than twice CNN’s 635K. While MSNBC is in a distant second place behind Fox, it is still leaving CNN in the dust with an average of 1.667 million primetime viewers and 913K total day viewers.
During week one, CNN attracted a dismal 859K primetime viewers, but that was still better than week two, which dropped even further to 844K. In total day viewers, the anti-Trump channel dipped from a ruinous week one of just 649K viewers to an even more ruinous week two of 635K. Compared to the full month of May last year, the Stormy Daniels Network is collapsing even more in the advertiser-coveted 25-54 age demo.
Fox nearly quadrupled CNN with 2.89 million viewers.
The bottom line is that CNN’s ongoing and well-documented credibility crisis has now come home to roost as a five-alarm rating crisis.
