Beto O’Rourke’s CNN Town Hall Event Was A Complete Loser In The Ratings

Just a few months ago, people on the left were going crazy over Beto O’Rourke, but everything has changed very quickly. The left, including people in media, just don’t seem as interested in him anymore.

He did a town hall event on CNN this week and the ratings were miserable.

Presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is not only starting to appear toward the bottom in the polls, but his Tuesday televised town hall with CNN now holds the distinction of being one of the lowest in ratings for the network.

O’Rourke’s CNN town hall averaged 714,000 total viewers and 194,000 in the 25-54 demo, which means it came in third for both categories during 10-11:15 p.m. EST, according to early Nielsen Media Research.

In the same time slot on Tuesday, Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” had about 2,393,000 viewers and MSNBC’s “Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” had about 2,274,000 viewers.

More people watched the CNN town hall event with John Hickenlooper. That’s amazing.

Heavy reports:

Beto’s CNN Town Hall did Worse Than Hickenlooper’s

Beto O’Rourke’s CNN town hall Tuesday night did not attract the ratings his campaign hoped for. According to Deadline, O’Rourke attracted an average of 714,000 viewers and a news demographic (25-54 year-olds) of 194,000 viewers.

One stat that stood out, and will make Beto’s team sweat is that his total viewership of 714,000 fell short of Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper’s, whose town hall was back in March and attracted 754,000 viewers.

Ratings assembled by Nielson show that during last night’s 10-11:15pm timeslot MSNBC and Fox News dominated CNN’s – 2.196 million for MSNBC and 2.260 million for Fox.

Beto tried all the usual gimmicks of the left:

He still came up short:

He has fallen very far from the ‘Beto-mania’ that struck the left in the 2018 midterms.
