February cable ratings are in Piers Morgan may be out at CNN, but what about the rest of the networks primetime, which looked none too good for the month, all losing around half their audience compared to same month last year?
CNNs Anderson Cooper at 8 PM dropped 47% February to February in overall audience to average 421,000 viewers, and 46% in the news demo to 127,000 viewers for the month, according to Nielsen. In his defense, Coopers lead-in, Erin Burnett Outfront, dropped 39% to post an average of 293,000 viewers in February CNNs smallest monthly haul in the timeslot in more than two decades and slipped 32% in the news demo to 100,000 viewers.

Yowser - this should get the issue of monitoring newsrooms jump started again.
Maybe the people are sickening on a steady diet of godless Marxist propaganda 24/7?
FNC still sucks.

We need a real conservative channel.
Maybe because of Fox news babes
Who want see Candy Crowley ugly mug LOL!

“Erin Burnett is watchable. I dont understand her ratings fall.”
Pretty blue eyes only go so far—particularly when connected to a cool-aid drinking true believer in the standard progressive lies.

Watching CNN is like watching Jay Carney mumble his stupid sh!t for hours on end.

To maintain success they must refrain from hiring replacements.
News without opinions are boring. I am perfectly OK with getting opinions together with the news, just not the idiotic opinions.
