Skip to comments.CNN’s ‘Reliable Sources’ with Brian Stelter hits rock bottom in key demo

CNNs beleaguered media show Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter hit an embarrassing new low on Dec. 22, when it averaged only 85,000 viewers among a key age group.
Stelter regularly touts the significance of the news demographic of adults age 25-54 but the dismal performance marked his lowest viewership of 2019 in the category.
The dismal performance from Stelter came as Fox News Media Buzz, a direct timeslot competitor, thumped CNNs Reliable Sources across the board in 2019.
Stelters Reliable Sources averaged only 748,000 total viewers for the year prior to its 2019 finale on Dec. 29, while Media Buzz averaged 1.3 million over the same time period.
In addition, CNNs Sunday morning media show lost 12 percent of its viewers compared to 2018, while Media Buzz kept its audience with nearly identical year-to-year averages. Among the demo, Reliable Sources averaged only 167,000 viewers during 2019 compared to 227,000 for Media Buzz prior to the Dec. 29 episodes.
The 2019 demo low of Reliable Sources on Dec. 22 occurred on the same day that Media Buzz topped its yearly demo viewership, averaging 298,000 age 25-54 viewers for its third-best performance of the year, indicating the holiday season is not what kept viewers away from CNN.
The Reliable Sources host who also pens a media newsletter by the same name, has pivoted from straight news about journalism to focusing on President Trump.
Stelter has repeatedly criticized Trump and members of his administration, often questioning Trumps mental health and fitness for office.
Back in August he was condemned for blaming technical issues for staying quiet when a guest said Trump is responsible for more deaths than brutal dictators Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong

I don't know how anyone can stand to look at this clown for more than 2 seconds.
I mean, Stetler is absolutely one of the butt ugliest men on TV. He's nauseating.
Ive never seen OAN ratings. I know its relatively new but youd think itd be beating fox by now.
It would have been less, but many of us were forced to watch at the airport
Little Brian is one of Rushs favorite topics. Rush doesnt have to work at making Little Brian look like a buttmonkey because he is. Rush just lets Brian be who he is.
OK, never seen him so I just watched 5 minutes of some Canadian liberal interviewing him. Stelter looked like a grinning Gollum using standard liberal idiocy. Just two liberal news media guys smiling maniacally and “knowingly” as they hate on President Trump with no facts.
I didn’t help matters when Brian had Dan Rather drop by on his show. That show is called “Reliable Sources”.
Maybe Brian Stelter is too young to know how Dan lost his job and credibility. And no, it had nothing to do with Donald Trump.
Definitely a face for radio

Damn. That’s funny.
Stetler is such a joke.
Doesn't Brian Stelter do a lot of cocaine? I don't know if it's true. I am just asking.
Why Does Cocaine Cause Tooth Decay?
Cocaine use can directly and indirectly affect dental health. Side effects include dental erosion, oral perforations, changes in diet, brushing habits and mouth dryness.
Wonder with some hair? Maybe if he wore a toupee whether hed look better!
I was pretty sure of that before seeing this headline.
“I know its relatively new but youd think itd be beating fox by now.”
OAN is not widely available. I don’t know what their ratings are, but I often see articles comparing cable news channel ratings and, apparently, OAN isn’t even registering. They have a long way to go. Nice to see Trump giving them noticeability in some of his posts. In order to be successful they need to hook up with cable tv providers, like Comcast.
Odd you say Stelter is ugly. I was thinking how he thinks he is a cutesy patootsey. Not a manly trait. Not a manly man.
