    CNN Ratings Collapse

    CNN Has Double-Digit Monthly Ratings Loss in Primetime … Again

    Somebody at CNN should say, "Hey, let's start doing REAL NEWS".

    If it weren’t for bad luck, CNN would have no luck at all -- especially when it comes to ratings during the network’s vitally important primetime schedule.

    In May, the channel lost 16 percent of its weekday evening audience from the previous month, falling to just 761,000 viewers and winding up dead last among such cable networks as liberal rival MSNBC and the dominant Fox News Channel.

    .....

    There are many answers to this sad state of affairs for the once-proud network with one example being an visit to NewsBusters for the outrageous bias spewed on CNN daily. But for Nolte, his answer was that the channel has list “all of its moral authority and every bit of trust it once had.”

    Nolte noted that during the past six years, from “as soon as Jeff Zucker took over [as president], CNN got every major national story exactly wrong.”

    To prove his point, he described each important news story during that time as reported by that network, including the following (links added to NewsBusters articles on the topic):

    • “Hispanic George Zimmerman: The White Racist Killer”
    • “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot”
    • “Trump Can’t Win.”
    • “Brett Kavanaugh: Serial Rapist,”
    • “The KKKids from KKKovington High School”
    • “Trump Colluded With Russia.”



    “And in every one of those cases,” he continued, “CNN got it deliberately wrong” because the liberal network “is nothing less than a hysterical propaganda outlet, a fire hose of hate, violence and lies” and thus has crashed and burned “in every possible metric -- including integrity, decency, honesty and humanity.”

    While noting that the channel “is only competing with two other cable news networks, the fake news outlet’s top-rated program, Cuomo Prime Time, crash-landed in 25th place, averaging only 938,000 viewers" with Chris Cuomo as host.

    He added: “The top 24 slots are all filled with shows from Fox News and MSNBC -- and Fox holds seven of the top ten” in part because the FNC “earned three times as many primetime viewers (2.34 million) and more than twice as many total day viewers (1.34 million).”

    Nolte stated that The Lead host Jake Tapper was “the guy Zucker put at 4 p.m. hoping he’d act as a primetime anchor as a lead-in for the rest of the night.”




    I wonder what CNN's ratings would be if they weren't on all the TVs at Airports and many hotels.

    That's because CNN has competition with MSNBC whose is right on the heels of FOX and whose Rachel Maddow show just topped Sean Hannity in the nine o'clock hour. I wonder what Fox's numbers would be if they had any conservative competition whatsoever.

    And this "competition" is new?

    ETA: I am literally laughing out loud.

    Jimmy, you are such a pantload.

    Well, it certainly isn't propaganda as is much of Fox in primetime.

    Jimmy, honey, there's NEWS and there's COMMENTARY -- many of Fox News segments are COMMENTARY, and don't pretend to be NEWS, like CNN does.

    Dum Dum DUM!!!!

    Yeah right CP, that, I suppose, is why they call themselves FOX NEWS.

    And the news segments on Fox are anchored by folks who are pretty anti-Trump like Chris Wallace and to a far greater degree Shepard Smith.

    Let's see....



    The Drastic Change

    It is not just that the numbers are low for CNN, but that they have continued to decline while other networks are going in the opposite direction.

    Since the election, Fox News has had a steady increase in ratings, and have only increased their viewership. Now, CNN is barely in the top as a cable network too, not just when compared to similar outlets.

    On the list of all cable new channels, Fox News is placed first, MSNBC is placed third, and CNN is in tenth place. Furthermore, only one CNN primetime program is on the top 20 list for cable news shows. The show is Anderson Cooper’s 360, and it placed number 20 on the list for the second quarter of 2017.



    Splain that one, JimmyLou

    Already did. CNN has competition with actual News outlets, FOX News does not. But MSNBC is second to FOX, not third as your biased link stated, and out of the 2 most watched shows of the two, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow beat out the propagandist Sean Hannity. It's taking a while, since FOX has been propagandizing for so long, but people seem to be finally catching on to the scam. Probably will take you quite a bit longer!

    My "biased link"? Jimmy, the whole problem with CNN's numbers IS its bias! The only thing that's changed of late it that CNN has become even MORE biased.
