CNN’s ratings are collapsing even faster than Tim Geithner’s reputation.

The original cable news network now rests in fourth place in primetime - dead last - in the fierce fight for the coveted 25-to-54 demographic. On one recent night, they fell to fifth, trailing even CNBC.

Here’s how Portfolio.com explains CNN’s sad tale:

And why wouldn’t they be in free-fall? I mean MSNBC is basically doing what CNN does only to a greater degree. What need is there for CNN anymore?

I’m fully expecting to live long enough to see the final collapse and bankruptcy of the already morally bankrupt CNN, AND I plan to live to see the Return of Jesus Christ, Who will no doubt refuse to grant those atheistic airheads an ‘exclusive’, despite their promises to “Make Him a Star”, lol

I hope Lou Dobbs jumps ship to the Fox financial network. He would be the only reason to watch cnn.

CNN is unwatchable these days. Begala/Carville were at least fun to watch, in a train wreck sort of way.

I’m kinda disappointed that CNN and MSNBC can’t both be last.

With CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC and the public network all swooning to put on the far left agenda, just who needs all those stations. The dems are consolidating down to one, so let’s see who bites the dust next.

Agreed. CNN has lost its looney left audience to MSNBC. This is what happens when you have too many liberal broadcast outlets vying for the same limited audience.

Imagine how well an authentically conservative network would do.

Even when MSNBC is not doing lefty politics they run something negative like people in prisons. That makes them a complete downer.

What CNN needs is more Rick Sanchez, Jack Cafferty and Campbell Brown. That ought to do it....

I’m always afraid of scrolling through the channels and getting counted somehow of watching CNN that I blocked it along with MSNBC.

There ratings would be even farther in the toilet, if it were not for public places that are mandated to be on CNN (airports, gyms, and the like) because CNN is supposed to be the “neutral” choice.

CNN is like watching a different movie each day but the ending remains the same whatever else has transpired.

I was in a store tonight and they had all AIG propaganda and evil execs. AIG is a smokescreen to hide how bad O’s first 100 days have been. The hosts are usually young light skinned African American men who should wear bow ties because they all sound like Nation of Islam rabble rousers.

Obama and the liberal media are going to set race relations back 40 years.

When it’s on in a public place I do the equivalent of sticking my fingers in my ears and going La-la-la-la - I don’t want to hear truth perverted. I imagine that right thinking people in various totalitarian states did the same thing down through the years.

You know at some point their low ratings will cause them to be pushed out of the airport/hotel/etc. broadcast of choice slot.

When that happens there will be an even bigger plummet in ratings.
