CNNís Ratings Take Another Dive, HLN Sinks Into Abyss
breitbart ^ | JOHN NOLTE

Posted on 06/27/2018 6:13:53 AM PDT by davikkm

While Fox News continues to dominate in the world of cable, CNN’s audience continues to shrink, reports TV Newser. In all of cable last week (not just cable news), Fox News was number one in primetime, averaging an incredible 2.513 million viewers. Fox News even humiliated second place MSNBC, which averaged just 1.78 million primetime viewers.

But way, way, way down in 13th place, below even the Food Network, sits far-left CNN at number 13 and an average of just 914,000 viewers — which is about a third of Fox’s numbers.

In total day viewers, Fox News is again number one with 1.465 million viewers, and again humiliated second place MSNBC with just 962,000 viewers.

The conspiracy theorists who run CNN, however, are humiliating themselves with a seventh place showing of only 633,00 total day viewers.

Despite its longtime dominance, Fox News still managed to grow its total day audience by +4 percent when compared to last year. MSNBC grew by double digits. Meanwhile, CNN lost -5 percent of its primetime viewers when compared to last year.

I was looking at a CNN interview where the host was complaining about how they are unable to influence Trump’s base and then had audacity to wonder why that is

It’s pretty bad for CNN when MSNBC is taking your viewers away.

A lot of those are from places like airports, too.

Nobody really watches the network, anymore.

CNN’s sister network, HLN, is a total failure, ranking at 52 with an average if just 262,000 primetime viewers and 227,000 total day viewers.

And yet my office cafeteria still has HLN on all day.

What a waste of air time.

With their access to the Time-Warner film vault, they should play cartoons 24/7.

CNN is propped up by airport TV’s and such where the audience is captive.

“CNN lost -5 percent of its primetime viewers when compared to last year.”

Sigh. I suppose that’s what happens when there are no longer any standards for or interest in journalistic excellence.

And people at the airports are either standing in line to board, or their faces are buried in their iPhones. So if CNN is baking the airport viewer stats in, they're hurting far more than meets the eye.

I see CNN only at the airport, or when a clip shows up on FR. I think that the CNN market strategy is to be so over the top bat sh!t crazy that they show up on Rush or Hannity, boosting their ratings.

“And yet my office cafeteria still has HLN on all day. “

I worked for General Dynamics. Our facility had CNN on all day every day in the cafeteria. A few of us would change it to Fox in the early morning but by the time we came back in for coffee it was changed back to CNN by the floor workers. I had to grit my teeth while getting food and generally left the room to eat at my desk; so disgusting was the Anti-American drivel.

The CNN MSNBC dynamic reminds me of what is going on in terms of the democratic party, where its socialist are eating the lunch of more mainstream but still nutty politicians.

CEO Jeff Zucker signed a contract with CNN so it looks like they want low ratings. Someone is financing them to be a mouthpiece for the democrats.
