Chris Wallace’s new CNN show launched this past weekend and absolutely bombed in the ratings.
Wallace’s problem is that he has no core audience. Conservatives aren’t going to watch him because he is so anti-Trump and liberals see him as a former FOX News host.
Wallace drew an audience of just over 40,000 people in the 25-54 age demographic. That’s pitiful.

Total Bomb! Chris Wallace’s CNN Show Premiere Tanks, Pulls Only 44k Viewers In Key Demo
Chris Wallace’s much-hyped return to television with the debut of Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace scored a paltry 44,000 viewers in the all-important ratings category, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The legendary broadcaster’s new show on CNN premiered on Sunday and was only able to deliver 401,000 viewers in the 7 PM/ET hour.
Wallace pulled in only 43,800 in the 25-54 age demo. To make matters worse, the program was down double digits across every category versus the 2022 average, according to early date from Nielsen Media Research.
On Fox News, at the same time period, Trey Gowdy scored a massive 1.3 million viewers with his Sunday Night In America With Trey Gowdy show. His program had 78k in the key 25-54 age demo.
The conservative network blew CNN out of the water for the night with 1.2 million total viewers. CNN and MSNBC trailed far behind.
As RadarOnline.com first reported, Wallace had a lot riding on his new gig at CNN after leaving Fox News after 18 years for a spot on the network’s streaming platform, CNN+.
How long will this show last?
