Watching the ratings for CNN is like watching the film clip of the Hindenburg crashing and burning .
When you look at the current ratings for the network and compare it to the same week last year, they have lost 28% of their viewers. And their numbers last year were already in the toilet. Fox News is number one on cable with PMSDNC coming in a distant 2nd. CNN ranked 14th overall and 9th in prime time viewing. Here is the comparison:
Total Primetime Viewers
Fox: 2.26 million
MSNBC: 1.5 million
Total Day Total Viewers:
Fox: 1.23 million
And the anti-Trump hate network just barely cracked an average of 500,000 total day viewers, with 519,000.
In primetime, CNN ranked number 14 in all of cable, while Fox News and MSNBC ranked number one and two, respectively.
In total day, CNN squeaked into the top at number nine. Fox and MSNBC again took the top two spots.
Things are not going to look much better this week. During Trump’s formal declaration that he would run for a second term on Tuesday, CNN was wiped out in the ratings after the crybaby outlet got its widdle feelings hurt and cut away from the speech after Trump’s capacity crowd of 20,000 started chanting the pro-science phrase “CNN Sucks.”
Throughout the speech, Fox News average a whopping five million viewers to crybaby CNN’s — try not to laugh — 788,000.
To add insult to injury, MSNBC also chose not to broadcast the speech and still came away with 1.9 million viewers.
Also of note in last week’s numbers is the disparity between Fox and MSNBC.
For a time it looked as though MSNBC might actually compete with Fox for the cable news crown, but those days now appear to be over.
