CNN Hits Lowest Primetime Demo Rating at 9 PM In 15 Years
Mediabistro ^ | May 16, 2012 | Alex Weprin

Unfortunately for CNN, “Piers Morgan Tonight” was the apparent victim of the busy night, drawing only 39,000 viewers 25-54 at 9 PM. To say those ratings are anomalous would be something of an understatement. That is the lowest 9 PM weekday demo rating for CNN since at least 1997.

After posting a comment on the article about the AP report on housing starts, this fact is quite pleasing. Maybe something is happening in this country to get her turned around and stop listening to distorted nonsense. I only wish the same blessing on Rachel Maddow. What a total fool. Then comes Chris Matthews, David Letterman, etc, etc.

My GF’s friends (all libs) asked me once to switch to Piers Morgan and I understand why only 39,000 brain-dead zombies watch him: he’s insufferable. Pretty much a limey version of Charlie Rose, whom no one can stand except for libtards.

I may get flamed as xenophobic, but, I have wondered what’s with Piers Morgan, a foreigner, lecturing us about what’s going on in America, and feeding us liberal observations about same.

Flame away.

Fox sucks hard now a day's

Canada has Sun News which really is conservative news.

No ones going to flame you FRiend. Piers is one of a bunch of Brits who have the good sense and the where-with-all to get out of the rapidly sinking ship that was once Great Britain. I’m with you, I can’t stand foreigners like him who flee here from what ever socialist crap-hole they ran from and then start telling us what the deal is.

Yet they rush to these fools for comments on the news. Kinda’ like NOW having their spokes-beeyaches available to speak for women. I guess Rush has more women signing up for his latest gimmick than these contemptible he/shes has in total membership.

I’m still amazed at how many places still show CNN news stuff on TV. Fortunately, they usually have the sound off.

What we are saying here....is that everyone from the city of Burlington, Vermont took an hour off and watched Piers. For what they pay the guy....I’m guessing that management is sitting there and trying to figure out how to get out of this arrangement. You can’t be charging that much for advertising time on his show...or for any of CNN’s evening pieces. I doubt if anyone has gotten a pay raise in three years.

Flame away? CNN has the worst hosts other than Obama cabinet and czars.
CNN is not about reporting news.

It seems that they want to propel a belief in the commie, liberal agenda. Like a religious cult, self righteous in spite of the truth.

Their’s is a religious conviction

Both Fox News and CNN will never do that well at 9 PM. On Wednesday, American Idol, Modern Family, Criminal Minds are on. No way people are going to watch a news show when other programs are on. This does not surprise me one bit. American Idol has two episodes left before they name the winner so of course people are not watching CNN.

I've read similar complaints about Mark Steyn here, too. Look, if someone has something intelligent and witty to say, why not listen? Morgan doesn't; Steyn does.

Mark Steyn is the first to pass on lessons he learned from his country’s mistakes; he doesn’t think the US should follow Canada’s lead.

I love when he subs for Rush; he’s brilliant with a great wit.

Creepers, consider this: our book “Patriot’s History of the United States” has more readers than CNN and MSNBC prime time put together! We have more readers than the Oprah Network has viewers!

I would like to know why we have so many Brits on our TV stations? Don’t we have any Americans capable of reading a teleprompter? Even a loser like Barry can read.

“I may get flamed as xenophobic,”

Where were you for the past 8 years? Foreigners only love us when they take our aid money but when their backs are turned, they hate us back. F’ em. The only limey I was impressed with was a video interview posted on FR a year ago with Simon Cowell explaining why he hated socialism, and the only way to be successful is through hard work.

“I’ve read similar complaints about Mark Steyn here, too.”

I can relate more to Steyn because we are both (ex) Canadians and we hate socialism from our own mother country that we moved here to America. The very same court he was charged for some BS liberal case in Vancouver is more left liberal than the 9th Circuit will ever be.

Glenn Beck meanwhile, was named 20th most influential media person in America.

Poetry, thy name is irony.

Beck is on the right track. I’ve started listening to him every morning. He’s sounding a lot like a Freeper these days.

Oh, me, too. I can't stand Morgan. I just don't agree with the idea that we should dismiss the opinions of everyone who isn't a citizen.

What do LOW RATINGS matter when compared to the glory of THE MESSIAH OBAMA?
These are acceptable losses, at least until November.

Look at their lineup. The only people who watch CNN must be tied to chairs with the remote out of reach. Nobody would willingly watch such crap. Piers and Anderson are horrible, but that idiot woman is the worst. Every time I surf by CNN and she's on, she says something unbelievably stupid.
