SINKING SHIP: CNN Falls Behind MSNBC In Primetime Total Viewers, FOX Still Number One

CNN is reaping the rewards of being a fake news network. People don’t trust them anymore and have tuned them out. How embarrassing for them that they’re getting beaten by MSNBC.

Of course, FOX News is still mopping the floor with everyone.

Deadline reports:

Fox News Channel Marks 15 Years As No. 1-Rated Cable News Network

The news network founded during Bill Clinton’s presidency that climbed to No. 1 during Bush’s administration, in January, FNC clocked 2.9 million primetime viewers and 1.8 million in total day. In the news demo, FNC in primetime logged 574K 25-54 year-old viewers and 375K in total day.

CNN, meanwhile, averaged 1.172M primetime total viewers and 795K total day overall, as well as 388K primetime news-demo viewers and 246K news demo viewers in total day.

MSNBC’s primetime overall audience of 1.174M in primetime edged past CNN’s, though MSNBC trailed CNN in the news demo (278K). In total day, MSNBC delivered 650K overall viewers and 156K news demo viewers.

How bad will things have to get for CNN before they change their ways? Since the election, no one at the network has been fired. They haven’t made any adjustments to reflect the outcome of the presidential race at all.

Isn’t that kind of a bad business model?
